This hotel is wonderful! The staff is friendly and nice. They are pet friendly. Location is awsome, by many shops and malls. Traffic can be a problem during weekdays ecpecially around 5. Dont plan on being any where fast around that time. The hotel values their platinum members and offer many great benefits.

Our room was a newly renovated bi-level loft family suite on the high floor. It was perfect for my family of four with all the amenities we needed.

Just wanted to send a comment on how professional Shaquille B. was during our recent visit. We were in town for a week for my niece's wedding. He was consistently pleasant every time we saw him. He helped with suggesting local places to visit and restaurants.

The suites are comfortable enough. The kitchen is minimally stocked with utensils and plates, etc. The staff are all quite friendly and helpful. The design of this property is not very effective. At a glance, it is quite attractive—a community of cottages. However, we stayed here 12 days and discovered quickly that most of the units aren't very pleasant, either... More

Very nice place located to few steps from the UC San Diego, the room is equipped with all the necessary to cook as you were at home if your are looking for a place to long stays. With a privileged location very near of supermarkets, gas stations, restaurants, etc. And the hospital district in La Jolla.
