This Hotel is perfectly located in SD, close to all attractions ( by car ) and freeway access is great. The rooms are a bit dated and small but it is clean and has a nice pool. If you are traveling with a family -- the place is fine. The service is great and the staff is friendly and the the place is kept very clean.

We had a poolside room, great for the kids young and old. Easy access to the beaches with a 15 min drive but a bit out of the way for evening entertainment. Plenty of shopping in the area with the local mall and a few outlets within a 30 min drive.

Our young family of four stayed here for five nights. We really enjoyed our experience at this hotel and it's proximity to Seaworld, San Diego Zoo and Safari Park. We also really enjoyed Fashion Valley Mall and only wish we had more time there!
The complimentary shuttle service was fantastic to the attractions mentioned above.
For transport outside of the complimentary shuttle area we relied on a driver recommended/booked to us by the hotel.This service although convenient that they booked on our behalf wasn't overly cheap for local trips and transport into the city and airport. I think could have found cheaper had we have shopped around ourselves. (From memory our roundtrip transport to Legoland was circa $130).
The pool was clean, large and fantastic fun after long hot days of walking!
We also really enjoyed the shopping at the very close Fashion Valley Mall and the foodcourt provided a great variation from the Hotel Restaurant.
A fantastic stay!

We just finished a five night stay over Memorial Day, and our opinion is similar to our positive review in 2011. This is our fourth stay there. This is an older, well- maintained hotel and what sets it apart is an outstanding staff. The standard rooms are very comfortable but the bathrooms are small. We are active seniors so we often walk to the golf course and the mall. But we have also used the shuttle service to various sites, and it is excellent. We also like the on site restaurant which opens at 6 a.m. We have had nothing but positive experiences with every staff member we
Have encountered.
