Bathtub did not drain. Kept having to pull stopper

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights.I was excited to stay at any hotel in San Diego hoping I would open the windows and enjoy the fresh ocean breeze. I was pretty disappointed to find out that I would not be able to open the window. I had to turn on the thermostat for short periods of time to freshen up the air in the room. For short periods of time because the air draft from the AC was strong and I simply could not sit on the bed next to the window. The strong smell of air freshener (not a pleasant one) was very present. If there had been a window to open in the room, we would have had a nicer stay. The vending machine where Cola was $2 was broken. The receptionist told me that they were short staffed that night and there was no one available to check it out. However, you could purchase Cola at the check-in desk for $3. Or, as the receptionist recommended:" You can go to the gas station across the street." to get a Cola for less that $3. One more thing, for the price the hotel charges per night (breakfast, parking, internet, fridge not included), they could have had a hand shower head (with hose). It would have helped a lot when giving a bath to a baby. I would not recommend this hotel to a friend and I will not stay at this hotel in the future.

Needed a roll away cot and was told it was a fire code. That is NOT clear on information. One of my children had to sleep on the floor!

Checkin was quick and efficient( staff friendly and helpful. Hotel location was business park with great freeway access. room was large and clean but mattress was less than comfortable. Cut my trip short due to pool overrun by children.

My stay was very enjoyable. We had complimentary shuttle service to our locations. The only things I do not like is the parking prices, plus the price for Wifi. I wanted to connect to wifi 2 hours prior to checking out, and still the hotel still wanted me to pay the $10.00 for it, which was ridiculous. The staff was very polite and was happy to help with any questions that we had.

Conveniently located, clean and comfortable staff very friendly my only complaint is that, despite multiple requests, the hotel never emailed my final receipt

the staff was very nice and accommodating and I loved the pool area

The hotel is clean and comfortable. the hotel staff are very friendly and responsive to my request.

Overall, we had a great experience at the hotel. The amenities are incredible, and there is secure parking in the guest only parking garage. The rooms are very nice with extremely comfy beds and lots of pillows. The only disappointment was that there was a wedding receptionbeing held there while we were there, so we had no access to the bar and pool during prime hours . Other than that....we enjoyed it.

One of the best locations in town. Parking is additional fee.

Stayed for two nights while working at a nearby office building. The room was well taken care of and the restaurant was quite nice. My only complaint is that this hotel does not offer free WiFi an instead charges $13/night for it.

Staff very helpful, especially with special requests. Very courteous. Very comfortable and clean.

Freeway handy, staff at the desk was helpful and friendly, rooms were impeccable, beds were comfortable and super cozy. Wifi is free at the lobby and first floor but they charge at the rooms. The desk manager said they will change this policy. Have to pay for daily parking. Lots of restaurants close by, about a mile drive. Their own restaurant has a small menu but good. Lots of spaces to lounge and meet with clients.

Made last minute booking to spend weekend in San Diego. Hotel was perfect, great breakfast buffet, close to the beach, nice pool and best of all, we could bring our little dog along for the fun. Staff is very accommodating and definitely best value through this site!

Great hotel in a great location. Close to beaches, 30 minutes from San Diego, great shopping in LaJolla. Loved the pool, bar and very helpful staff. All the staff went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay.

Great experience overall. Awesome customer service. A bit noisey, seemed more like a business type hotel than a family type.

Great hotel but they have you pay for all extras. No Internet, expensive parking, no free breakfast. In my opinion I would stay at the double tree next time. Cheaper and more accommodations.

It was an average hotel. Cleaning the room on the after first night was done very late. On check day they were there very early to get you out. I had some large charges made to my card. I have to wait several days before before it gets removed.

Good hotel, the lounge was real nic on the top floor

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was very comfortable. I cannot imagine why they are charging $25/day for valet service or $20/day for self parking, but it seemed to be the going rate in the area. Nice pool area, nice breakfast buffet (check to see if it's included with your rate as it's $16/person otherwise!)
