Privacy and the atmosphere and the staff we're so nice and friendly

Beautiful hotel clean and a very attentive crew.Will definitely stay here again

Remote location not near anything jn walking distance.

It was a pleasure staying at this hotel. It's nice and clean, with very good amenities. Even the hallways smells nice. Staff are friendly and location was close to the airport and many attractions in the area. Will definitely stay here again if in the area.

It was well kept, we had a great view and it was close to where we wanted to visit

There was febrese smell through entire hotel. Pretty strong on beddings and room floor

Very comfortable hotel and helpful staff. Clean, nicely decorated and great rooms.

Loved the swimming pool and friendly staff. Didn't like that they do not have a restaurant inside the hotel.

Breakfast was on the list of amenities but it cost and it was expensive to do laundry. There was also a policy in which i could not charge to my room for amenities unless i could pay cash. Rather inconvenient

Could have offered a continental breakfast. A in house bar would have been nice. Housekeeper, Rita, cleaned our room for us everyday and was exceptional. We would definitely stay again.

Customer service was excellent. I had some extraordinary circumstances and the staff allowed me to check in early and check out late. Extremely accommodating. This is a hidden gem. The location is prime. Beautiful property.

Great hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Very quiet and clean. The location is about 15 mins away from balboa park and other popular spots. The only downside I found was a lack of stores around it but that’s not the hotels fault. Still a 10 out of 10 for me.

We got to the property late and the person manning the front desk was extremely helpful to us and even gave us an upgrade in our room for no charge and we had to get up at 4 o’clock in the morning to catch a flight so she was extremely helpful to us they had a business center where we could print out our boarding passes for a fight the only downside was there was a restaurant across the way that was playing loud music but with the upgrade she Gave us a room in the back of the hotel we didn’t even hear any noise so excellent service very nice place I would definitely stay there again

Perfect stay ! Free upgrade, great accommodation ! Great staff! Free tea & coffee!
