2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very old property, needs upgrade to rate a 3 Musty smelling

I really enjoyed my stay here. It was clean and the staff were friendly. I enjoyed the assortment of food for breakfast, too! Thank you.

I booked 2 rooms for our family. Others in our group booked an additional 4 rooms. All were very happy with their choice. As for us ... Checkin went smoothly. Staff was pleasant and courteous. Daily breakfast was BAM!! Very good. Rooms were clean, modern, decor was pleasant. BEDS were fantastic and I have never reviewed a bed that way before. Location very convenient right off the 15 and I mean right off but there was no noise problem. Our grandson only used the pool once ( we are Floridians and it was still "cold " for us.) The area was clean and neat and nicely landscaped. We did sit out by the pool a few times and it was pleasant. One of the reasons I picked this hotel was because it was pet friendly and it really was. I saw alot of dogs coming in and out and baggies were provided for cleanup. Also doggie treats were at the front desk.How accommodating is that. If I had to find a negative it was just the elevator needed a little facelift to go along with the rest of the facility. But it ran well and was quick. Overall I definitely would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone needing to stay in the San Diego area. We had events in Escondido and this was very convenient. Very good BANG for your travel buck.

Stayed here to visit CSUSM. Price and quality was excellent. Room clean, lobby great, breakfast great, nice pool. Quiet. The only negative was some rather "functional" desk staff who seemed more interested in reading their books and being "cool" than being friendly and helpful.

I don't have any negative things to say except the front desk could be a little more friendly and accommodating.

It's was good. I slept. Woke up took shower dressed missed breakfast cause I was lazy and comfortable.

Great weekend at this hotel. Clean and friendly with awesome breakfast

There was crumbs or something between the sheets. I ended up sleeping with pants and a sweater on because it was so gross

Nice comfortable room, great stay. Close to freeway access, would stay again. Nice pool area, very helpful staff

Very acceptable room; clean and comfortable. The breakfast was generous and more than we had expected. The only complaint, and I'm not sure it was the hotel's fault, was a car alarm that went on and off all night and into the morning. The dog park is a great idea. Overall, we would stay again. Thanks!

Overall, we had a positive experience at your hotel. The only negative was the smoking in the back parking lot.

Friendly staff, clean room. Close to restaurants. Breakfast was good.

great place to stay..close to everything. free breakfast was great...room was spacious and staff very helpful

The hotel was clean and easy to find. The highway, while right there, was easy to get on to but could not be heard from the rooms. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable and was able to help us get around the area since this was our first trip out west. I would definitely stay here again!

Went out for the night to spend New Years Eve at Valley View Casino. Was close enough to have fun and quiet enough to return to a nice quiet room!

My husband and I have stayed twice at this hotel and will continue to stay each time we are in Escondido to visit family.

I had some work training in the area so stayed here for 2 nights. The location is excellent as it's close to restaurants, shopping etc. the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was fine, clean, but nothing out of the ordinary. The a/c was a bit difficult to figure out though and was set so you could not go below 68 degrees so if you like a cold room that wasn't possible. Overall it worked out for my needs.

It was a sufficient hotel. Nice fluffy pillows. The walls could be a little more sound proof. The restaurant options are meager right around the hotel. No major complaints.

We stayed on the hotel for several days due to work. Nice place. Good location. Nothing extraordinary but we have a pleasent time on the hotel.

My family and I stayed in a 2 queen bed room. The room looked cleaned, however when my wife went to beds and pulled the sheets over her legs, she felt a bite on her legs. In the morning my daughter, which was on the other bed, woke up with no less than 7 insect bites on shoulder. The desk staff also mention that I would have to get a doctors note varifying the bites marks. After leaving the hotel, my daughter also mentioned she saw the bathtub having what looked like brown powder or dust. This brings to thought if the room was truly clean.
