    Great room for a great value!

    I came down to San Diego to visit family, and ended up needing a room in a pinch. The Days Hotel came to the rescue! For a last minute booking, check-in was fast and easy. Our room was clean, comfortable, and had all the amenities one could need (a/c, mini fridge, microwave, etc.). Even the little hotel restaurant (BUNZ) was pretty good, offering decent meals at decent prices. Don't expect the Ritz Carlton, or even the Marriott, but if you're looking for an excellent budget hotel the Days Hotel is definitely one of the better ones I've stayed in.

    Excellent business trip HQ

    While it may seem like just another motor lodge on the circle, Days Hotel is far more impressive where it counts. I have stayed there for three business trips, and now generally don't even look anywhere else. The location is perfect, with easy access to the 8, CA-163, and a quick backroad to Mission Hills and Hillcrest. And just a 10-minute easy drive to Sea World and one of my other favorite spots, Belmont Park at Mission Beach. The room was super-clean, the beds had high-quality extra-height super-comfortable mattresses and almost felt luxury-grade. Plenty of drawer and closet space, convenient extras like an iron, ironing board, hair dryer, electronic safe, small refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. Bathroom was clean with updated fixtures, and everything worked perfectly. To the back of the property was a beautiful pool deck with a good-sized pool (great if you have kids) and a very relaxing hot tub, all with a gorgeous view of the hillside. Almost had a resort feel. Small trendy restaurant onsite ("Bunz") with some outstanding upscale burgers and dogs -- also an excellent breakfast menu. Parking can be a little tight when they are busy, but never had too much of a problem finding a space, and never had to walk too far. Elevators at both ends of the buildings made hauling luggage a breeze. Decent WiFi (1.5 up, 3-5 down) meant I could do much of my work right at the hotel, which cut my traveling time significantly. Also saw that one of the buildings had a full-sized conference room, available for meetings or parties, and the lobby has a couple of convenient computer stations for web access and printing. All the staff I dealt with were friendly and helpful, but I honestly didn't need them for much, because I had few to no problems. Overall a huge return on the value price, and I will definitely be staying there on future trips.

    Good place for value and safety

    Clean remodeled room, great salt water pool, hotel was clean and in good condition plus good security. Great location. Only problem was there were 4 of us and they usually only left 2 towels and 2 washcloths and no hand soap. We had to call every day to request extra pool towels and bath towels and washcloths.That would not keep me from staying there, but just saying you are so close to getting this RIght.

    Family Vacation

    The Hotel was nice. Located on Hotel Circle in San Diego. A continental breakfast would have been a nice touch, however there is a little breakfast/ lunch place on the grounds,"Bunz" where the people were very nice. I had my morning coffee and breakfast there every day. The Pool is on the smaller size, great for little kids. Easy access to the highway.

    So-so hotel

    This hotel was about what you'd expect for the price. The rooms were clean and comfortable, but the amenities were lacking - no free breakfast, the shuttle only went to sea world and the zoo and only Monday thru Friday.
