Enjoyed the well appointed room, friendly staff. Recommend this venue, centrally located, near WalMart, Kohls and supermarkets, restaurants. Exercise room is excellent and accommodating. Breakfast is ample and fresh. Variety of seasonable fruits, cereals and oatmeal, eggs. Near local colleges and university.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 January 2017 via mobile

The hotel was very easy to find off the freeway and there were no surprises...great clean room, comfy bed and free breakfast. The front desk clerk was a very nice guy and check in was a breeze. I stayed in #208 and it was as quite as a fish with no freeway/street noise at all,

I stayed at the hotel for business. Very comfortable beds and pillows. I liked the fact that there were refrigerators and microwaves as I travel with food. Hotel staff very professional and helpful. Nice location and restaurants within walking distance.

Great place if you need a hotel in the area. Prices are decent. It's really close to the Palomar Medical Center. A little ways from San Diego proper but doable. The room s are nice and large. No complaints about cleanliness. The a/c/heater unit is a bit old and loud. No wall control, you control the unit by the window....

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. I've never been treated better at any hotel at any price. I received an early check in and late departure without a hassle. I highly recommend this hotel when staying in San Marcos.

Too tired to drive home from San Marcos to Hemet, plus had work the next day 5 min from hotel, so decided to pay for extra sleep time. Saved myself a chance at death and stayed in the comfortable hotel room. It was quite, there are restaurants nearby and everything worked well, no funny smells, strange noises, or crazy people....

The hotel was nice, room very clean, comfortable and quiet (3rd floor) Amanda (front desk) was very helpful and goes above and beyond. Housekeepers were very thorough and never bothered us while we were sleeping in or even there for that matter. It was the perfect location for us, it was out of the crazy traffic area, close to the...
