This is a wonderful place. Excellent value, good convenient location, and very clean and definitely the most comfortable bed I have found in any hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast and pool -just a great value. I highly recommend !!

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in July. I chose to stay in the cheaper option, the bungalow, to save money. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and it was more than enough room for the two of us. There was even a little walk-in closet in which I could hang our clothes and get our...

We stayed here for 5 nights while we did the San Diego theme parks. What a gem! Not only was the hotel lovely, with large rooms, a very nice pool surrounded by gardens, and a fabulous breakfast, the staff went above and beyond! Friendly, always asking about your well being, your plans for the day. Told us the great restaurants...

I feel duped by this hotel. The ratings were high and the website seems nice so I was excited to call this place home while we house hunted in the area but as soon as I walked in the room I couldnt wait to leave. We shortened our stay and found other accommodations in town. It was dirty and small...

The location was great in that it was close to downtown as well as the airport. We stayed here before we flew out and it was a quick drive in the morning. The place was well maintained and very nice looking. The staff was helpful. Based on the sunburns, the kids enjoyed the pool for a decent amount of time....

It's nothing fancy but it doesn't claim to be. We just wanted a nice size room for us and the kids and that's what we got. Breakfast and the pool were bonuses. We hardly spent any time in the room with our eyes open. If you're looking for a resort location to relax the day away look elsewhere. But if...

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate the feedback, and the compliments.

Nice accommodations, very friendly/helpful staff, walk to Old Town and 15 minute drive to downtown. The only negative is breakfast - it's crowded and more like day care with all the noisy children. You may or may not get a seat in the breakfast room.
