Country Inn

When we arrived there was only one driveway to enter and exit when exiting was difficult to get to main road. We reserved a room with 2 beds and they only had rooms with 1 bed available. We asked for a roll away bed non were available. The hotel was booked with foriegn travelers mostly Japanese going to Legoland the breakfast buffet was too small for all of the children and tourists no place to sit and the buffett food was gone as soon as it was put out. Rooms were nice but we could have used 2 beds as requested No Grocery or stores local to shop for snacks and stuff forgotten at home

my stay

Room was great, staff ere great. The lack of the bar at the weekend was not acceptable. The concierge said they close it at the weekends because they aren't so busy as during the week. However my room rate wasn't discounted to the level of a 'barless' hotel. The breakfast was weird, sausage, very dry lumpy scrambled eggs, then a jump to French toast/waffles, there was no potatoes or starch with the breakfast selection other than bread.

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!

Unplanned trip extension

Last minute plans change. Found this hotel. Price very good for room quality compared to nearby hotels. Great breakfast. Wish we'd stayed here the two previous nights in San Diego instead.

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.
