Recent guest reviews

Booked a room to accommodate 2 adults with 4 children and was as booked and expected Good hotel for families, nice pool, good breakfast. Very accessible to beaches and activities. The cleaning staff did seem to have a hard time understanding there were 6 people in the room as had to remind for correct # of bath towels. But overall very clean and well managed. I would book this again

There was no water and they told me to go check out if I don't like it and go find somewhere else at 10 PM

Well 1st of all they wanted to charge $13.00 a day to park when we are a guest staying with them for a week.I told them im not paying $13.00 she stated then park on the street.Key quit working one day had too call office twice to get wash cloths. Their place where they have breakfast way to crowded. They only good thing it was in a good location for places you may go. I would not recommend this place to anyone and we will not be staying at this place ever again.

Usually stay at a resort but tried to book too late. I found this hotel online and it looked okay. The room was very small for the 5 of us, it definitely looked bigger in the pictures. Breakfast was not bad wish they changed things up it was the same everyday. The staff at the check in was great but the others were kinda rude, one actually closed the elevator door when we were trying to leave guess she thought there wasn't enough room. The location could not have been better though. So that made up for a lot and the kids loved the pool. I will

Breakfast was ok, room was so small for so many guest that we had to either way standing up or take it back to the room. Fitness center is a closet and all the equipment was out of order. Hallways had a weird odor. After our first night our room didn't get cleaned and we had to ask for housekeeping. Staff was nice but facility cleanliness was a disappointment. Not to mention all the homeless camped out around the property. I will not stay here again.

Front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. Called room service and within 5 minutes they showed up. Decent condition of the overall hotel.

Close and convenient to sea world and the San Diego zoo. Slightly run down, but I'd stay here again.

Blood on sheets! Rude manager. Both air conditioners were broken! Maintanance guy came looked at them said he would be back to fix and never showed up! Homeless people all around. Someone's car was broken into on the property! Only good part was I got refunded 1 day for my terrible experience! Pay a little extra and stay at a holiday inn express!

The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable.

Really not bad. But could definitely be better. I asked for toothpaste and they said they would bring some...they never did. There were no towels at the pool either night that we went. They said they would bring some but never did. Elevator was a little creepy. But other than those petty complaints, it was a pretty decent place to stay. I'd stay there again.

Stay was very good with clean room and friendly staff. However, only issue I had was the breakfast area. It was located in car parking area. Felt it was bit cold and was could have been more clean.

1. Rooms are too small 2. Beds are not comfortable and sizes are not accurate. 3. Rates are not accurate and deals aren't really deals. I booked what I thought it was a great deal for a hotel suite, instead I received a regular hotel room with no microwave and was charged more for that room per day than a suite. It was suppose to be queen beds but they were actually full size beds. The queen size beds in the regular room were so uncomfortable that I know they are probably older than 8 years. The cable tv is very limited on channels so there isn't much to watch while in the room. The breakfast served was not the best and the dining area was extremely hot with not ventilation because if the waffle irons. I will not be using a third party to book another hotel stay because it is to difficult to get help when there is a problem at the hotel. The back and forth is ridiculous simply because you didn't book through the hotel itself. On top of everything else when I received the bill it was way more than what it should have been and the hotel gave me several different rates throughout my stay, none id which I paid at the end! Will I recommend this hotel or orbitz? Not at all! Now I'm going to see how long it takes someone to call me to fix the problem before I contact corporate about the situation.

Excellent breakfast! We loved the location of the hotel.

We had great time. Breakfast room a little small for that many people but overall our stay was really good

Elevators out of service. The ones that worked shuddered as they went up and down. Breakfast was okay but crazy crowded and loud like a school lunch room.

This hotel is ridiculously close to almost everything in the San Diego area: Balboa Park and all its attractions (including the San Diego Zoo), Sea World, Old Town, the airport, and Ocean Beach with its superb dog beach. We were 5-10 minutes from everything we did with our Go San Diego! passes (not included with hotel stay). The staff was extremely pleasant, especially the housekeeping staff; our room was impeccably clean each day when we got back from our adventures, despite the messes made by 2 kids under 10 and an inordinate amount of beach sand carried in on beach wear and shoes. Our kids' stuffed animals were even in different cute poses every day! The pool was great, much larger than it appears in pictures, with plenty of shade and seating. Breakfast was awesome, but be aware that it gets BUSY, especially on the days that are used by families from the Marine Corps recruiting depot. I found it easier to get what I wanted to eat and take it back to my room. One downside for us was the guest laundry. We had planned on washing our clothes, since we had an extended stay. Unfortunately, only one set of washer/dryers was working, and that was spotty at best (coins kept jamming). Fortunately, one of our party was willing to take the afternoon/evening to babysit the laundry to get it all done.

Great location close to everthing and the were very kind.

Tiny elevator that's inspection had expired 6 months prior. Dirty floors and filthy baseboards in bathroom. Cable tv sucked, as most channels were not HD. Loud stomping above us until midnight. Walls seemed thin in general. Breakfast was delicious, but located at the end of the hallway on the 4th floor?? Marissa at the front desk was super helpful.

Insuff air conditioning and tv channels suck but staff was wonderful

I think the hotel is nice, I'm just putting nice because although our room was clean, there was a stain on the floor, the bed skirt was visibly torn in a few spots, there was a couple of small stains on the top sheet of bed and the grout in the tiles for the shower were gross. I did like that the sofa bed was in its own room with tv but the main room was very cramped with the sink and large mirror in front if the beds, awkward.
