Great hotel in the middle of hotel circle within minutes to the freeway and easy access. Great pool which felt heated which was great in May! Rooms were good though there didn't seem to be exhaust fans in the bathroom. Good hotel, price range is expected for the region.

I stayed at this hotel with my friend for a concert in San Diego this week. Although you could tell the hotel was not new, the rooms and bathrooms were actually very clean and tidy. The manager, Theresa, who checked me in was very sweet and welcoming. Since its a weekday and it's not busy, I asked her if she...

This a very large hotel with lots of room located in several detached buildings. It's old, relatively clean and for the price a good deal. Easy access to the freeway. Parking is good and they include a nice breakfast.

It was a one night stay. But it was nice. The hotel is not the most modern, but it's not a bad thing and it's not ugly. The room was clean and efficient. our room was located in the back end of the hotel so noise was not an issue. We had a nonsmoking room so we didn't get a...

When booking your hotel keep in mind to check if the parking is provided free of charge as plenty of hotels don't offer this option, some even charge for internet access. Costs can quickly add up. Distance is less relevant as San Diego is not a huge city and you will be pretty much 15 minutes away from one of...

Sure, you can find newer, swankier hotels in San Diego and pay a lot more as well. Our 3 night stay was very comfortable, with excellent bed/pillows, clean linens and a wonderful pool. Bathroom and shower area was very clean. Only complaint there was very low pressure in the shower. Restaurant didn't have a ton of choices, but what they...

When I stay somewhere I don't expect much if it's on the budget end of the scale but I expect a good shower and bed/pillow. Unfortunately this place can't tick any of it off. Customer service was ok besides the day the cleaners forgot to make up our room. Pictures on the internet definitely not taken recently. The only thing...
