At first I thought a made a big mistake. The hotel looks more like a motel, and I'm sure at one time it was. This is not your traditional Holiday Inn. The rooms are tiny, but comfortable and clean. Tip: ask for a room that is furthest from the busy highway, otherwise it will be noisy. The owners/ management have...

We were on a late flight and arrived close to midnight. Jose checked us in. A number of things went wrong; we pulled the credit card out before the transaction was complete causing Jose to have to re do the whole thing, 5 seconds before completing the check out process we decided to add snacks to the bill & despite...

Candidly, the room, a 2 bedroom unit (turned out to be a handicapped accessible space, which is fine), wasn't much. The hotel sits above the freeway and train tracks, so noise is an issue. The beds were comfortable, the room was clean and the shuttle service fabulous. The staff went our of their way to assist us. When we mentioned...

The rooms (301) was comfortable,clean and huge. Breakfast selections was HIE standard but absolutely enough to start the day. Parking in front of the hotel is...

Clean hotel with comfy beds. The staff, including Art and Josh so helpful and pleasant to deal with. Our party was a late check in and early departure and they made it a smooth trip. We had all ages from 23-86 and the ease of check in was great.

We only stayed here one night, prior to our flight home from San Diego, but we were pleasantly surprised at how easy they made our lives the last night of our trip. Jose at the front desk was incredibly friendly, professional, and helpful (and fast!), even while juggling our check in and three phone calls for the shuttle. The shuttle...

The staff are more than accommodating! The rooms were immaculate...The continental breakfast was more like a breakfast buffet, with someone there making sure everything was clean and fresh! Housekeeping staff does a wonderful job as well! The hot tub was warm and powerful! and very relaxing. The pool area, although cold, was super clean.(didn't get to swim :( )...Overall... I...

This place has an amazing shuttle service! The shuttle picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, it took us anywhere in Old Town and picked us up afterward, took us to the Zoo, took us to SeaWorld, and Mission Beach just to name a few. The free breakfast was good, the staff was very friendly and helpful...

We stayed for 4 nights in early January, while in San Diego for a graduation at MCRD. Other family members also stayed in 3 other rooms. Staff were friendly. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The rooms on the freeway side of the hotel are really noisy, I'm glad our room was on the street side. Breakfast selections were average,...
