Recent guest reviews

1) Close to the rail line 2) Plenty of restaurants within a couple of blocks 3) grocery store next door 4) Staff was very friendly 5) Better than average continental breakfast A little overpriced for a 3 star hotel but but the reasons mentioned above make up for this.

Best hotel Ive stayed at so far! Staff was excellent , went out of their way to make my stay the best it couldve been, also very very polite. Breakfast was great! The hotel was very clean and quite. Pool was alittle small but clean and nice to hang out by. Forsure going to come back!

Nice short trip to the beach and Sea World. The hotel staff were great.

Good location, plenty of food options nearby as well as shopping, very inviting and welcoming, breakfast was great with a wide variety of items, comfortable room with no noise issues, would definitely stay again and highly recommend for a family stay.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and everything is what we expected.

Really clean! Perfect location. Close to zoo . Breakfast was delicious. Staff was really helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

The location of the hotel is very close to the freeway and Coronado Island. The staff was very nice and the room was clean and large. The breakfast was very nice with a lot of choices. My kids liked the swimming pool so much. It is definitely worth of money.

I had a wonderful time at this place. The staff is super friendly and everything is clean

The Hotel is conveniently located in the middle of variety of restaurants and shopping places. Clean and friendly staff. Highly recommendable.

Rooms were nice, clean & comfortable. Loved that the complimentary breakfast was warm food and not just donut & cereal like other places

Perfect. Liked it for my comfort. But the only thing is. One more Elevato.

Through a computer fluke, I ended up with 2 reservations. Your representative and the desk clerk had to go to battle with the hotel's general manager to avoid me being assessed with a @ $97.00 cancellation fee. Thanks to the two of them, I've been told I won't be charged for the duplicate reservation. I'll know for sure when my next credit card statement arrives. Jon Crum

We've stayed here several times. I think its too expensive compared to other hotels in the area but like the location. The rooms are always clean and the beds are super comfy.

Don't stay at this hotel that's at least 30 mins away from everything. Rude staff that watch the cameras to see which room you walk too. Dogs are frowned upon and apparently you can't stay in a "good" room with them. Staff were incompetent and the hotel's location is in the crackhead district of Chula Vista. HORRIBLE. Spare yourself, your trip, your pet, and a headache. Two thumbs downnnnn.

This is the second time we've stayed at this hotel. The first time it was only overnight so it was great. This time however, it was the entire weekend. It started off with the elevator being broken, THE ENTIRE WEEKEND! Not cool considering we were on the third floor. I'm by no means a lazy person but after coming in from a late night, the last thing I want to do is walk up 3 flights of stairs. On the second day, I ran down to get something out of the car and my key card didn't work when I got back up to the room. Luckily there was a maid next door who let me in. Later that night after coming in late, the keycard didn't work on the back door, which is locked after 10pm. We almost had to walk all the way around to the front but luckily, after 5 minutes of trying, it finally opened. I do like the rooms, they've always been clean and the bathrooms are nice. I also like that we're able to hook the PS3 up to the tv so we can watch movies or play video games. I'll definitely stay here again, but hopefully the elevator is working.

The front desk staff was extremely nice and service-oriented, especially Carlos. The king bed was comfortable, the room a decent size, and the complimentary breakfast and free internet were nice benefits. The only thing I did not like was the neighborhood. It was a bit run-down but by the 2nd night, I felt relatively safe all things considered.

The hotel was great and the amenities are as well. The breakfast beats any of the other continental breakfasts I've had at other restaurants I've been at. You get to make your own waffles and they taste great! They definitely give you a lot to choose from for your breakfast. The staff is great and helpful and always have someone at the front desk. The only complaint I have would be the area. Walking around the hotel sometimes at night, you'll notice a lot of sketchy and shady people, but generally I get the idea that a lot of families come here too. Just stay inside the hotel at night.

When my husband and I checked in the lady at the front desk was very nice and helpful when we asked questions about the area. All the front desk staff was friendly, always greeting you when you entered or exited. The maid service was ok, she made the bed and supplied new towels but didn't refresh any of the used supplies (coffee, shampoo...), breakfast area was good and plenty to choose from. I believe we would stay there again.

Very pleasant stay we had. Although I was exhuasted and mentally drained, upon arrival I was greeted with a smile and pleasant attitude. Clean hotel and rooms, breakfast was good, and coffee was even strong enough for me. located near freeway, mall, donuts shop, fast food, and dine in resturants. Workout room needs attention.

Convenient to the border and I-5, I-15, I-805. Trolley stop is 2 blocks away making gas lamp and downtown about 20 minutes by public transportation. Parking is free unlike downtown area. Hotel is clean and remodeled within the last 2 years. Pool is on the small side, but clean. Front desk has a nice "shop" with snacks and sundries open 24 hours. Very nice feature for a "discount" hotel. I would definitely stay there again.
