“You Get Double the Value of What You Pay For”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

Super friendly staff, comfortable beddings, good selection of hot breakfast (scrambled eggs and sausage everyday - could be better if sausage is alternated with bacon for people staying over 2 days), clean laundry area, security at night. Breakfast sitting area is limited but you may bring your food in your room - I recommend bringing a picnic basket to carry your food if your room is far away since the breakfast area is located in 4th floor. Breakfast crew are so friendly and they are always refilling the food. Water dispenser is available at the breakfast area so you may refill your hydration backpack, no need to buy bottled water. Coffee and bread are added in the lobby area in the morning for people who are in a hurry. Coffee is available 24 hours at the lobby along with computers with free internet access. Parking spaces are tight but I saw some bigger cars occupying double spaces and if you do not want to pay the extra parking fee, there are spaces in the street, just let them know so you don't have to pay the fee. The fact that the hotel hires a security at night, the parking fee is so worth paying for. Jose, their Security Guard lets you do your laundry too past midnight, which is very helpful. Place is so close to Seaworld and business areas. Nice view from the 4th floor. Family suite is great, comparable to Residence Inn, just without the kitchen and separate bathrooms. Beddings are comparable to Crowne Hotel. Breakfast is comparable to Marriott's Residence Inn, just with lesser selection of hot entree. This place is highly recommended for families with tight budget but still want quality.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet/pool area if you are sensitive to highway noise as this hotel is very close to the f...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay at our hotel. It was my pleasure meeting you. I made sure to thank all of my staff personally for making you feel at home. I know that you have stayed at many places in San Diego and it was my delight to learn we were able to go above and beyond what a much higher priced hotel would deliver. We hope to see you again soon. Juan Alarid General Manager

The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Loved the fact that it was so close to both the Zoo and Sea World. We also found excellent shopping and restaurants located nearby. One of the largest "breakfast rooms" that we've visited on our travels and even though it was crowded it did have a lot of tables. The pool is heated and there is a hot tub also. They could use a change machine in the laundry room, but the front desk staff was happy to provide change. Ask the front desk for a list of local restaurants and directions to local attractrations. It came in very handy. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Was concerned that our room faced the freeway, but we could not hear any noise from the traffic.

Easy to find in the Hotel Circle area. Hotel was clean, staff was friendly & accommodating. Rate includes breakfast & the variety of items offered was better than most budget minded properties.

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were small but clean. Breakfast was included. The food was only average and very crowded even when we went in early. The hotel is very close to Seaworld.

After accidentally booking into the Comfort Inn & Suites Hotel Circle South (ugh! stay away!), I found this gem less than a half mile away. The lobby is clean and modern, the staff ... so nice! Shout-outs to Bobby and Dwayne especially; talk about going the extra mile - wow. Quiet business area, screaming fast Internet access (the other hotel was worse than the worst dial up), hot breakfast upstairs, quick snacks downstairs, pool, hot tub, and gigantic, comfortable rooms with large clean bathrooms, comfy beds, modern decor, walls thick enough I felt completely alone, and a fridge that worked. I was there for business -- not a bad commute to downtown -- but most of the guests were on vacation and taking advantage of the shuttle to the zoo and Sea World. Recommend it? I wanted to move in! And the cost was half what I would have paid downtown. Remember to ask about the AAA rates.

Room Tip: If you need fast Internet, ask for the 3rd floor - that's where their router is. Rooms near the...

Very large,spacious rooms with plenty of seating,eg a bed settee. Pretty clean,but bathrooms could do with updating.Nice swimming pool.Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was interesting! Bit of a free for all.Very,very crowded.Plenty of food but Definetly need to invest in some more seats! The food was ok,a lot of different choices,but the same things most days.
Parking is cheap and location is ok.Close to some other restaurants. Would stay again if passing.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay at our hotel. The staff and I strive to deliver" Legendary" service to all of our guests and it seems like we suceeded. Our "Hot Buffet Breakfast" is extremely popular with guests so the Breakfast room can definately get a bit crowded. I suggest that on your next visit you try our new Express Breakfast Station in the lobby. Juan Alarid General Manager .

For somewhere that you will just want a place to sleep and clean up then this is as good as any. Clean and comfortable rooms of a decent size. Breakfast room a bit crowded and plastic but does the job before you head out. Did not use the pool as a bit small and lots of kids around. parking $9 a night but some street parking available. Avoid rooms to the rear besides the freeway.
