We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of June, having looked for somewhere with good access to the Zoo and La Jolla. No sooner had we arrived than we were pleasantly suprised with the friendly welcome and customer service. Eli gave us a map of downtown,and some handy tips around what to do and see in the city,which...

If you're planning to go to Seaworld and the Safari park, I highly recommend this hotel. The location is in the center between the two places. This is the best hotel my family stayed in during our trip. They have a free wide selection of breakfast in the morning (including bacon). They also have free parking and most of all,...

I was visiting the Qualcomm campus for a business trip and picked this hotel. The facilities were well kept and the room clean. Slept well, but covers are thin and I like thicker ones. I really liked that Chili's was out front as it made it easy for late night dinner and drink. The breakfast spread was pretty impressive.

If you don't use the pool or gym, you'll like this hotel. It's clean with friendly staff and pretty much the only good TV I've come across in my recent travels--good reception, fast channel changing, and plenty of selection. But if you want to work out, which is vital for me and caused me to switch hotels, you're out of...

Stayed here with my climbing team for our National Climbing competition. The staff was very kind and helpful. They even allowed us to hang out at the pool after ours so long as we kept the noise down. We had an excellent time here and the free breakfast was the cherry on top!

This hotel had the friendliest, most accommodating staff I've ever experienced at a hotel, hands down. Eli went above and beyond to remember us when we came and went through the doors, and did more than was expected to let us have a good time. Cece was incredibly nice and gave us the same courtesies, going out of her way...

Stayed here for four nights on a business trip. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was excellent.
