comfortable stay

It was nice that the hotel is close to the airport, and they provide complimentary breakfast and shuttle service to the airport.

Clean & functional with a good location

The room is no frills, but was very clean with comfortable beds. The person working the front desk was very helpful, and even printed out a mapquest route to Julian for us. The breakfast is adequate, with make your own Belgian waffles, and other items such as hot and cold cereal, sweet rolls, coffee, juices, etc. The location is good for going most anywhere you want to go in San Diego. Overall, it is a good place to stay. You will get a nice clean room at a competitive price. Lower priced hotels are available, but this one is priced high enough to dissuade people looking for a cheap place to party, but low enough to be a good value. Would stay again if I need a hotel room in this area again.

Very nice hotel at an affordable price!!

We travelled with our two grown up children (21, 23). The room was very spacious and very beautiful as well as for the bathroom that had the marble counter. The breakfast was also great.

Hotel is great for the price

If you are looking for a clean, unpretentious place to stay and don't want to spend a lot of money, this is it. Coffee maker, iron and board, clean, comfy, TV, free wi-fi. More than worth it.

Good value and location for the price

Nice hotel, good for the price and it is very close to the sea world. the 1st room we got smelled like someone smoked inside the room, went to the front desk and they changed it right away. It was pretty hard to adjust the air con, either high AC or no AC.

Convenient location-extremely reasonable

This hotel has always been good to us. Breakfast is included and plentiful. However this time the room cleaning staff was not up to par. I had to ask them two days in a row to finish cleaning the room. This is the first time however that this has happened. Otherwise the staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are kept clean.

Good value

We had a nice stay at this hotel. I really liked the shuttle service, but would suggest a later shuttle option, since our flight got in at 9 pm and the shuttle service stops at 8 pm.
