“Good suite hotel - close to everything”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2004

We stayed here during a househunting trip and found it easy to drive north county inland & coastal pretty quickly. UTC 15 min. away, Del Mar 15 min. away, Mira Mesa restaurants 5 min., Penasquitos & Sabre Springs 20 min. Quiet area, but only a few restaurants in walking distance. Facing into the courtyard is probably quietest, although Bldg. A was not bad (we had a few trucks loading in the middle of the night at warehouse next door). Don't pick a room on Mira Mesa unless you like traffic.

Staff was helpful & courteous. "Free" internet was only free for 2 days, then they charge $11.95 each day after that. We balked at the advertising and we were only charged for 1 day instead of 5. It's only free if you bring your own wireless card and don't need to borrow a wireless kit.

The 1 bdr was fine for 2 people, but I'd feel claustrophobic with 2 young kids running around in it. The breakfast buffet had enough variety for our 6 day stay. Coffee could be better... Happy hour our first evening was basic sandwich fixings, and the server cheerily brought over beer & wine refills. We did not have time to sample the BBQ or other snacks that week.

It was a very busy hotel, close to Miramar & many corporate offices so there was a good mix of people. Overall a comfortable stay for business reasons; there are probably better locations for touristy sightseeing.

We stayed at this property Dec 25-29 2003 (we stayed at the la jolla property Dec 2002). THis was so much nicer and newer (altho I heard that La JOlla has just completed its much needed renovation). This property was not your typical open/townhome Residence Inn type but more like hotel rooms which for me gave added sense of security. Food not that great but nice to have the option of having bkfst if you're too tired to make any of your own. Also close to Mira Mesa's restaurant row. They also offered free high speed internet access.
