Great Value

Hotel was under some renovation, but these changes were only making the hotel better. The room was large and very functional, with a desk, work area, and couch. Huge flat screen TV, with limited but adequate channels. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was some noise during the day, with construction and roadwork going on nearby. I would definitely stay there again.

Easy access and modern decor

This is a very nice hotel. Clean with modern decor. The staff was very friendly and the location was easy to get to. It's about 10-15 minutes from the airport just off of 163. There are lots of fast food locations just north on Clairemont Mesa Blvd if you need a quick bite to eat. The only negative is that because it is so close to 163, it can be quite noisy with traffic if you leave the balcony door open. With the door closed, however, you don't notice it at all. Overall a great experience.

nice hotel

All in all, a nice hotel and I have no complaint about the staff, they were all very nice and helpful. The only issue I had was with their hours of operation. Lunch was only served 11:30am - 1:30pm and didn't open for dinner until 5pm. The bar didn't open to 4pm so you couldn't have a drink and sit by the pool unless you liked the 5 or 6 types of beers that they had in the refrigerators by the front desk. Like I said, the hotel staff was all very pleasant and courteous so kudos to that.

I Agree and it was that way

I needed my shirts done and it was past the time for your pickup. They did get picked up early in the morning and the front desk people got them to the hotel 3 hours early so I could be ready for my day.
