Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, San Diego North

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 December 2013

I've never shopped on PL for a hotel but I was desperate so I did the open ended reservation and the Country Inn and Suites was selected. The hotel is in great condition, the room was comfortable and smelled clean, though a bit dated, and the staff were ALL nice and helpful. Breakfast was a lovely presentation too. I would definitely choose to go back to this hotel in the future!

I recently had the pleasure of visiting this hotel during an engagement for work, and although I didn't actually stay here, I was treated as if I were king for a day! The most beautiful front desk attendee (Rola) greeted me with a smile and obliged to all my requests (cookies and candy). ;)
If I ever return to the area I will be sure to book here just to see her beautiful eyes and to experience the benefits of good old customer service!

The only Item missing from this place was a beach. The service was excellent, the staff friendly and very helpful. We stayed at other Country Inn and Suites before and had good experiences so we actually were not afraid to make reservations for six days. This one was the best so far.
The location was great for us since it was close to the city and the beaches.
The property was very clean inside and out and parking always available.
The breakfasts were good and Anthony always right on top to clean up and greet you in the morning.
A pleasant stay!

This hotel offers a great value if you are coming to San Diego. It's a bit of a drive to the attractions (about 15-20 mins to zoo, Balboa Park, etc.) but soooo worth it!

Parking is free, breakfast is free and has hot options, WiFi is free! Rooms are large & clean. The restaurant lounge/bar has pretty good food (HUGE portions) and drinks. Nice option if needed. Staff is all friendly .

Only complaints - It can sometimes get crazy with the sports teams that come for tournaments... Not the hotel's fault but something to consider if you want a really relaxing hotel. The front desk could use some work - They aren't very good about keeping the coffee/hot water/cookies fresh.

Overall, great value and solid hotel.

*Every aspect of the experience was superior.* The service was incredible: the staff were professional, friendly, helpful, and competent. The lobby and grounds were nicely decorated and modern. In the lobby there was always tea, coffee, water, cookies, and fruit.

Breakfast is included in the room rate, and is excellent. The selection is great, and the food is filling and healthy. We stayed for 4 days, and every day there was something different: cottage cheese strawberry blintzes (crepes stuffed with cottage cheese, topped with strawberries), scrambled eggs, oatmeal, cereals, pastries, ham steaks (it's really nice ham-bone), waffle maker, fruit salad...Cottage cheese strawberry blintzes are on Thursday menu, if you're lucky enough to be there. :-D

Very nice 2 room suite with everything we needed. Close to Chilies and within a short drive of pretty much anything you might want to eat. Nice TV's cable and internet all worked well. Bathroom was very nice. People working at the hotel were very friendly. The free breakfast was very good. Large selection of food.
