Entire room and hotel could use some serious upgrades. Bathroom needs new plumbing facilities, e.g., toilet, sink. Room furniture could or should be replaced, e.g., very outdated and worn looking. Also, curtains definitely should be replaced. They don't close completely. Outside grounds need better upkeep and cleaning. The entire exterior of the building could use a good paint job. Aside...

We stayed there mid week for our visit to SeaWorld. The room was quiet and clean. The parking was a little tight probably because they were busy. The air conditioning​ wasn't that cool. They serve breakfast starting at 6:00 I believe and had apples, bagels, cereal, oatmeal and coffee. Very nice employees and they have an armed guard so we...

While checking into the hotel we noticed signs that said smoking was only allowed in certain areas. We ask the young man who checked us in for clarification about where to smoke so that we could follow protocol. We were told that smoking was allowed in the parking lot and the gentleman checking us in gave us a room that...

Good location for our 3 day stay. For the reasonable price, we did not expect 4 star but is closer to a 2 star. Very noisy, bed is very hard, grounds are not particularly well maintained. Plumbing is low pressure, shower head is so low that even us shorter people have to stoop. Room was very basic but clean. Unfortunately...

The rooms are outdated and watch out for the "steps" in front of some rooms on the second level that are not "marked" we tripped and almost face planted into the maids cart. Barely enough room to walk around the carts that seem to never leave. The pool was crystal clear while the hot tub was GREEN AND SMELLED LIKE...

They did not have the breakfast that they advertise on their website -- we had to eat out. They have coffee, cheerios, bagels and oatmeal. They advertise toast, muffins, donuts, variety of cereals, fruit, etc., on their website, but they don't have those items. They indicate that they haven't served the breakfast on their website for over 3 years now....

I was driving down the coast after a business trip and ended up looking for a hotel in San Diego. It was the weekend of the Miramar Air Show, which I had no clue about so when I got off the freeway near Clairemont Mesa Blvd, there were about 6 different hotels to choose from. This one was the second...

The best way to describe this was average. Not great but not terrible. Im stingy with money so thats why I love coming here. Its not dirty and they provide basic breakfast. service at the front desk could use some work.
