I stayed here for three nights with my dog, who got to stay free. I needed to get some work done when I was here and the wifi did the job but the desk chair offered no (read: ZERO) back support. I solved that with a move to the 'comfy chair' in the room to actually be comfy enough to work. Problem easily solved.
The free hot breakfast was filling and offered some good choices. I have a bad neck and have to be picky about the beds I sleep on. The bed was fine and I didn't have any problems. The room was clean and taken care of regularly. There was always hot coffee in the lobby, which was a life saver for me.
Aside from the desk chair, my only other complaint was that after a very late arrival (driving in from Sacramento....long way), I needed to get something in my stomach fast. I should have consulted the magic iPhone in my pocket but I was checking in and talking to the desk clerk so I asked where the nearest Taco Bell was. Now, we're in Pacific Beach, right off Garnet Avenue near the I5 freeway. He directed me to a Taco Bell in Mission Valley at Hotel Circle. He maintained it was the closest one. I was stupid enough and tired enough to not argue and I actually got in my car and went there. I know San Diego pretty well so it wasn't that big a deal. But it bugged me enough to check and there was a closer one...much closer, right there in Pacific Beach at the corner of Grand and Mission Blvd.. The more I thought about it, the more I thought that, at the least, if the clerk really wasn't sure where the closest one one, he could have Google'd it.
Everything considered, I have to give the hotel high marks. It was convenient to the freeway and to where I was going. It allowed me to comfortably get my work done. I got a comfortable night's rest for all three nights. The freebies were worth taking advantage of. And the price was right. If my dog had thumbs, I'm sure she'd give it one up too.
