“Veeeery old fashioned”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2010

Stayed @Town & Country for the second time for a convention. The venue has a nice flair and its outdoor attractions are likable. The walking distance to the attractive shopping mall across the street is a value add.
The real drawback is the rooms' quality. Some very few are acceptable but most are begging for getting a complete overhaul. They are clean though but the corridors frequently smell badly and so do the elevators.

Down there for a week for a convention in late October, our days were quite full and we ran out of time for having lunch everyday... Fortunately, this hotel counts the best and richest breakfast I've ever eaten in California, healthy enough to survive in good shape until the dusk ! Teh very personable staff, and Pati Muklevicz is an excellent ambassador of them, makes the experience even greater and makes you eating like a king !

This hotels has beautiful grounds but is more of a 2 star hotel on its accomodations. It was not worth the price and would definitely stay elsewhere if I return to San Diego. Good location next to the Fashion Valley Mall and rail system.

This place is great if you miss the Tijuana setting... My room was in the tower on the 4th floor and working hammers were banging away below me @ 8A.M. My view was that of the S.D. Newpaper plant shop & below me was the junk yard... oh excuse me; the maintance yard. Carpets are even old... even the soap & shampoo was very 70s. The 300 s.f. room had a 25 inch TUBE televison. Whats up with that... ???? and the local reception was snowy... At the OCT 2010 price of $168.00 per night... the Marriott across the street is THE BETTER DEAL!!! No comp breakfast, no comp van pick-up to OR from airport. Had to rent a car because nothing around to do on the grounds... even the "lobby" for drinks SUCK!!!!! $15.00 for a sucky breakfest... STAY AWAY.... you have been warned

I don't remember the room number, but the thrid floor room I was in had bed bugs - that I didn't discover until the next morning when I awoke with bites all over. The hotel was old. There was a stain on the floor that looked like a former crime scene. The TV was fuzzy and had poor low-def reception. There was hair on and around the toilet, in the tub and on the bed sides. This is more of a 50-year old motel, with a nice pool, than a "resort." The staff was nice the the food was acceptable. If you stay here check for bed bugs first. The matterss is ancient.

Large air conditioned rooms and fabulous cookies. The plants give the place a peaceful feel. It is a large resort and I never managed to go to Trellises the same way twice.

I should have read the reviews here before. Once you check in there is a trap of $50 if you want to leave. Believe me, they need this trap to keep you here. Old mattreses smelly rooms. A resort room should not look like an old third rate motel. Go elsewhere, do not book in advance or you are trapped!
