Outstanding Family Vacation

San Diego is an amazing city with plenty of things to do and places to eat. This hotel is centrally located to just about all major attractions...would've rated it a 5. Although, there is nothing scenic to look at outside the hotel window--not the hotel's fault. The hotel was very clean, the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We would certainly stay there again upon our next visit!

Good deal

We had an overall good experience with the hotel and staff. One of the best amenities was the free breakfast which offered many healthy option along with the not so healthy eggs, biscuit, gravy and sausage. The room was comfortable and clean and checkout was a breeze.

Good for the price

We had an overall good experience. Buffet style breakfast was filling and one of the best amenities offered. The wifi is average, can be slow at times. We also liked the fact that they provided toothpaste and toothbrush because we forgot to pack ours. The staff was helpful, and checkout was a breeze. We'll be coming back to this hotel on our next SD trip.
