amazing value!!

I loved that this hotel was near all the main attractions, within 20 minutes, yet it was in a good location without all the traffic. The complimentary breakfast and parking made me love this hotel even more! The bed was so comfortable to sleep in. Definitely staying here again!

Perfect for business travel.

Perfect for business travel. Awesome free breakfast, with hot dishes (eggs + meat + other), waffles, etc.... It was just a 2 minute drive to the offices that I was working at. Will definitely stay here again.

Extremely welcoming and comfortable

The common area of this hotel is so inviting! There is a fireplace in the lobby where you can sit and read. There is even a small library of books to borrow from with a note that they can be returned to any other Country Inn. Breakfast area is quite large to accomodate the morning crowd.

Clean rooms, friendly staff, really nice hot breakfast

We had some very positive experiences with this hotel. The check-in was super fast, the staff was friendly and available, yet not 'in your face' which we appreciated. One highlight was the hot breakfast that they serve until 10:30am on the weekends. The breakfast is good too! This is not your average continental breakfast that so many hotels resort to nowadays. They also had coffee/refreshments in the lobby throughout the day, which was nice. Amenities were good, the room was clean and spacious enough, the wireless internet worked great as promised and there was no hassle connecting to it. The one thing to note is that the outdoor pool seemed cold even though they say it is 'heated'. Overall a really solid hotel. Definitely a very, very good 3 stars.

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.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

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!

Great weekend stay

The Country Inn and Suites is located in a business park type area along with several other hoels. It's close to the freeway and about a 20-30 minute drive to downtown San Diego. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was great. Our dog also stayed with us and it was nice to have some grass right outside the hotel. If you're looking for something clean, modern, and overall a good value, then this is a great choice. The only downside is that it's a bit of a drive from some of the main attractions near downtown.

Perfect stay for family

We went for a graduation. Room was comfortable, clean, and quiet. Fridge, microwave, iron, extra blanket. Exercise room, pool, hot tub. We liked playing games at the tables in the lobby. The staff served coffee and tea in the lobby all day. Breakfast featured eggs and meat, yogurt, fruit, waffles, juice, cereal - what more could you ask for? We left fed and ready to face the day!
