This hotel is a great location only if you are a family wanting to go to Legoland or a shopper wanting to check out the premium outlet mall. Because it is located a half hour from San Diego, the only way to get around is by the Coaster (train). The hotel offers a shuttle to catch the train station that is about 2 miles away. A taxi from the airport to the hotel goes for $100.00
Most of this info we found out on our own as the hotel staff seemed to be a little unaware of what is available to their guests. As for the hotel, it was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast provided was average but great coffee. NIce pool but the hot tub was under repair for the full week we were there. Lots of place to eat within walking distance.
