We chose this hotel since we got it at $99 per night - a steal for the San Diego area. The rooms are nice and fairly large. The continental breakfast leaves much to be desired. The place isn't as "country quaint" as the pictures look on their web site - the property is nicer than usual but isn't exactly in a "woodsy alpine" location. It is in a shopping center right next to the highway. There are many restaurants and stores located within very short walking distance. The drive back and forth to San Diego is easy and takes about 25 minutes. We stayed there for five nights and did the drive each day on our vacation. It isn't a resort - only a motel with outside access rooms. There are no plants in the room as the picture on their web site suggests.
