“Great place!”
Reviewed June 20, 2011

I stayed here once before as it is convenient to our customer's location.

Great staff, very friendly. We arrived very late, almost 1 am, and the staff we encountered upon check in was very friendly.

Room was clean and comfy.
Gym was nice although not too many machines. However, both times I went it was empty.
Breakfast was good, standard HGI breakfast.

No complaints! Great for business travelers.

A very nice well maintained property. Check inn staff were very friendly and pleasant.

I had dinner and breakfast in the on property restaurant, and both were fine. Restaurant staff provided great service.

This property is located in a quite residential/commerical mixed use area. I heard no traffic/city noise throughout the evening. It is a short distance from Interstate 5 and and very easy to access.

I would stay here again and will when I return to the area

Stayed here for 10 days for work. Great friendly service from the front desk and housekeeping (spotless). Room amenities great for business trips - wired and wireless internet, lots of light, and good desk and chair setup.

Free carparking (I think) and you will need a car as there is nothing nearby. There is a restaurant and bar downstairs, both close at around 9pm most nights. Service and food in the restaurant was generally good. We had the buffet breakfast included in our rate, which made it good value. Front desk staff good at recommending nearby restaurants and directions.

Would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

In-house laundry on 2nd floor - need to buy laundry powder from pantry ($1.50) and then 6 quarters for the washer and 4 quarters for the dryer.
Didn't try the pool or gym (24-hours). Or the day spa.

Only 4 very very minor issues:
1) bathroom ventilation is quite noisy and constant (but I guess I got used to it)
2) lack of boiling kettle for a cup of tea (perculator and microwave provided, awkward for those who drink tea).
3) Lack of utensils in room for when you purchase a frozen meal from the lobby pantry (not even a spoon!).
4) Lifts very slow. There are stairs, but these lead you outside so you have to walk around the building to come in.

Room Tip: Rooms with only one bed feel more spacious.

This hotel is a real find. It has a great location, near the 5 freeway. The hotel food is excellent and reasonably priced. I had breakfast and dinner in the dining room every day during my business stay. It's nice that internet access and parking are free. Above all, the staff was very attentive and friendly, which really makes for a pleasant stay. I'd definitely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms are spacious and comfortable.

Property was in great condition and we felt welcome from check in. Customer service was excellent from the front desk to restraunt service. Pool was clean and relaxing after a day of sightseeing. Did not use the spa or exercise room, but they looked wonderful. Couldn't ask more from a hotel. We would definately stay here again if in the area.

I recently took a course at UCSD that required me to travel to Del Mar once a month for 8 months. This place is the best. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and include a microwave and fridge. The staff is friendly, and the restaurant was a pleasant surprise.

We stayed here for a conference and loved it. The rooms were spacious, clean and modern. Parking was complementary. Coffee and water and wi-fi were also free.

Hotel was located about 10 miles from downtown San Diego in a nice quiet suburb in Torrey Pines. We didn't mind the easy drive to downtown San Diego since the commute was fairly easy and given the suburban location, i felt like we got better bang for our buck with the hotel.

Front desk was very helpful when we asked about road closures from the San Diego Marathon. Breakfast was $10.95 and included an all you can eat semi buffet. There was a menu you could order from (which included omelette, breakfast burritos, and sandwiches, as well as a serve yourself counter with bagels, waffles and fruit.

We would definitely stay here again!!
