“Bring Incense!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Whatever was nice about this Quality Inn – and there is much to applaud – was overshadowed by the intense acrid smell inside my guest room. It was the smell of an old, probably moldy wood structure, and denied me a decent sleep. The property has been nicely upgraded and remodeled but the building itself is not new and has absorbed years of damp and fog and humidity. Furthermore, my room was half below ground (literally) and half above ground, with walls painted dark which added to its claustrophobic nature; in spite of the flat screen TV, I almost felt as if I had been forcibly detained in an institutional facility. The manager and his wife are a lovely couple; he has a good sense of humor and she cooked up a tasty breakfast. Sorry, the very reasonable price notwithstanding, I cannot recommend the Quality Inn on Kearny Mesa Road.

The outside is not much to look at but who cares. The hallways had a odd smell like it used to have a really bad smoke smell but it was covered over. However the rooms did not smell at all. The staff were all very nice from the front desk clerk to the the cleaning people to those working in the breakfast area.

The breakfast was good. The bagels and bread were fresh and the waffles were just fine. Sausage and bacon completed a great breakfast.

Room was clean. It looks like the hotel recently had renovation done like new paint, carpeting, beds etc.. I did some research and given the price it is the best I could find in that range and was not disappointed.

Room Tip: Stay away from room 323, configuration with the sofa was awkward. The sofa faced a mirror and was o...

The management is very welcoming and helpful. The rooms have been remodeled and are comfortable. We were evacuated due to the San Marcos fires and they were able to squeeze us in and allow us to take our cat with us. The room has a good size fridge and microwave, fresh coffee in the lobby. Free wifi and a nice morning breakfast. The room also has free wi-fi and a nice desk and office chair.

I stayed here for 3 nights. Randomly picked this hotel because I am a Choice hotel member. What a lucky pick for me. The room was clean and the staff provided service with a smile and were responsive to my needs. The breakfast was everything that former reviews have stated "Sausage, bacon, waffles/ cereal, etc." No problem with the internet connection. I would stay here again if in the San Diego.

Great pricing /CLEAN ROOMS/Friendly staff and on top of all that FREE breakfast in morning. Sausage/bacon/waffles/cereal, you name it. Across street is Best Western $25-$35 MORE expensive. Also Holiday Inn $50-$70 MORE expensive!! Manan at the front desk is super nice young man and all about customer service. I travel all over and stay at MANY hotels, by far this hotel dollar for dollar is the BEST VALUE in San Diego area.
