Easy access to downtown and to work

The room was newly refurbished and looked nice. The bed was comfortable. Hotel staff was very courteous. I would return to this hotel again.

Good basic hotel

Just stayed for the night, but it was good. Comfortable bed and clean bathroom. Free wireless internet worked well. Some noise of planes taking off and landing, but tolerable.

It still smells like smoke...

The staff was friendly and the room looked clean. However, if there is one thing I cannot abide in a hotel room it is the smell of cigarette smoke. Even though this is reportedly a nonsmoking hotel, it didn't smell like it. My room smelled like it had been a smoking room for many years of its previous life. The location is certainly not dangerous, but it has a bleak feel to it. The hotel is pretty much under the freeway. That said, my room was quiet. So, it's a mixed bag. If you are on a limited budget, don't care about a view, and need a safe place to stay in the vicinity of Sports Arena Dr., this hotel will meet your needs.

good room

My stay was only for one night. The room was used as a rest stop for the night. Not enough time to give a complete and comprehensive review.

More family friendly than business friendly

I wouldn't recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to get a great nights sleep. Walls are quite thin. No fitness facility either. However, its located very nicely for SeaWorld/Mission Bay tourists. Its actually quite close to the downtown and airport, along with accessible to I-8 and I-5 both.
