Ordinary but great staff

Pros: The staff were super friendly and helpful. The location is good if you have business in the area. The area is quiet so sleeping is easy. The free buffet breakfast (scrambled eggs, bacon/sausage, potatoes, cereal, etc) was fine. The coffee was surprisingly good. The room was ok, just. Cons: The place is dingy - scuffs and scrapes on the elevator and hallway wallpaper. Little stains were to be found here and there the elevators smelled bad. A bit off-putting. Also, the area is a collection of bland industrial parks and corporate centers. No shops or decent restaurants. Great if you have business there but otherwise the boonies.

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.

Great business center hotel

I stayed here on business and it was great. I got an early check in and was able to rest a bit before my evening business meeting. This was close to freeway access and there was a business center and fitness center. Also Chili's restaurant in the same parking lot so that was convenient. And the breakfast buffet was great!

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

It is in a business area so if you need something from a drug store you should stop before this exit. Not too many stores around nearby. But there is a food court with lots of options right down the street if you are looking for food near the hotel.

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.

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.
