Beautiful accommodations high in the mountains near many corporate headquarters.

Loved the accomodations, the complimetary hot Breakfast buffet, the cookies and hot beverages at the front desk in the p.m. and the staff was very pleasant! Definately would stay again on my next trip to San Diego. Perfect location for all sights seeing places near by--La Jolla Caves/ Cove, Balboa Park, Downtown and Little Italy in San Diego.

Definately see Balboa Park in San Diego--all kinds of museums in the park, some are free especially the beautiful Botanical Garden filled with exotic tropical foliage, fountains and sculpture. Eat at the Prado restaurant in the park for a very different patio dinning gourmet food experience--I felt I was in Italy! Also, a must see is La Jolla Caves / Cove and experince the Seals and Sea Otters sun bathing on the rocks, children and aduilts snorkling, scuba divers and teams of kyaks--What a beautiful sight to see all in one location!

SD Business Trip

Spacious room! Double beds in room, but one bed with very bad smell. It seems the linens hasn't been changed after used by previous guest. Bad experience!

Great breakfast, room is big but not updated!

This hotel's location is just a couple miles away from my customer's office, this is the reason I booked it. The lobby and breakfast area are roomy & new. Room is big, but the decor is not so updated. No airport shuttle service, needs to book online in advance.

Nice hotel with great value and location.

Very happy to stay at this hotel. It’s conveniently located close to I-5 & 805 FWY for SD attractions, but without FWY traffic noises. Upon checking in at late evening, the front desk associate, Alex, was very polite and courteous. The room was clean & spacious. Breakfast was basic, but nutritious, plentiful, and FREE. Will be on top of our list for future stays when visiting SD again.

Awesome place for my family

This was our second time to this hotel. The room was great, perfect for a toddler. The morning breakfast perfect and fun in the pool. I love this location, a quiet business park on the weekend. We will be back.

Weekend getaway

Very good value hotel considering the price I paid. The breakfast was included and was perfect. The entire hotel and room were clean. Coffee and tea were available in the lobby 24/7 and occasionally cookies were available too! Most important was the location, which was perfect - nice quiet area very close to everything we wanted to visit as tourists.
