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!

Move into UCSD weekend

It was nice and friendly. Cookies, tea and coffee in the evenings. We could tell it had been recently remodeled, but that the contractor skimped in some places, shower fixtures were loose, etc. Enjoyed the work out facility and breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful. I asked them to make a copy of my daughter's class schedule and they made them for free - some higher end hotels would have charged for this service. We will be staying here again!

Great Alternative

This was a little off the beaten path, but the value far exceeded the extra mileage needed. The staff were fabulous and were willing to go above and beyond. Will definitely stay here again.

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.
