Perfectly adequate but nothing special..

We had a perfectly adequate experience here. Had the room been cheaper I would have rated the value better but at $85 it wasn't very cheap for such basic accommodations in an area that is very far away from downtown San Diego. Overall it was clean, the best were above average for a cheap place (with tons of pillows) and I have no complaints.

Very pleased...

I booked this hotel because the reviews were good, and I was not disappointed. I was really pleased with how clean the rooms were, and the staff at the front desk was helpful and friendly. I would stay there again. The location was OK. I probably wouldn't go out for a walk, but it worked well because we attended a concert at the Viejas Arena, and this hotel was just about 3/4 mile from there.
