“Excellant Location for San Diego”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

We stayed in this hotel early December 2013, Good location on outskirts of San Diego, just off the number 5 Freeway. Old town is very, Mexican, little souvenir shops, cafes etc.The Hotel has a free shuttle service to the old town in the evening allowing you to go for dinner and then just phone them up when finished and they come and pick you up, very useful.Also the shuttle service will take you to the Trolly Bus Train Station, and come and pick you up from there
when you return. The Trolly Bus Train is excellent, one direction, there are two stops to two big shopping malls, other direction stops to centre of San Diego, Midway Carrier, and to the border or to another huge shopping mall. Everyone in San Diego was very helpful. Seaworld was good, no queques at this time of year, weather very pleasant about 20C. Receptionists in hotel very helpful.Especially Kaylene. Would certainly recommend this as a destination.

Room Tip: We had 2 Queen Beds, with Bath and Microwave and Fridge included. Ask for quiet room as walls a bit...

I was pleased to stay at a hotel with such friendly employees. Anything we needed or had questions about were answered, and then some! All of our drivers were more than pleasant, especially Fernando! Such a jolly man. :)

Stayed here twice last month on layovers. Fast efficient shuttle service to and from the airport. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Room was well furnished, even though a little small. Clean and comfortable. Quiet even though close to the freeway. Liked the free coffee in the lobby all the time. Breakfast was good, better than average hotel breakfasts that most hotel include. We are returning to the area in a few months and look forward to staying here again.

We stayed for a week at the end of November. We were attending the San Diego Jazz Festival. This hotel turned out to be the ideal location. All the good points - good room, comfortable bed, great housekeeping, free shuttle service, inclusive hot breakfast, free coffee in the lobby, but most of all, kind, knowledgable, helpful, cheerful staff. It's a great place to stay. Minus points there are none!

Room Tip: Maybe best go for the rooms at the front which may be a bit quieter.

We stayed here so that we would be close to MCRD for Marine boot camp graduation, it's within 5 min of the base. The hotel us very clean, cozy and in a great location. Old town is a really neat area with lots of shops. The hotel has a shuttle that took us to dinner and picked us up and they were very quick. The staff at the hotel were all friendly and helpful. The hotel offers breakfast it's not fancy, but it was good. They have a little shop that's open very late, so you can go down for snack or something anytime. I'd stay here again.

One of the only hotels at San Diego airport to offer shuttle service. Great for early morning flights......as long as the night staff puts you on the correct shuttle reservation. Rooms are quiet and spacious. Great room service options (set up with local restaurants) to give many choices. Will stay every time I visit SD
