This hotel is located in the San Diego suburb of Mira Mesa. This is a very good, inexpensive alternative to staying in the downtown San Diego. It is about a 20 minute drive during non-rush hour traffic to Sea World and a 30 minute drive to downtown San Diego. Freeway access is a few blocks away. I would suggest that you take the commuter rail into San Diego and use the fine public transportation system to get around. The closest station is only a few miles away.
See if you can find a deal on priceline and save yourself some money. This is a hotel that caters to business visitors during the week. It is located in a commercial area and between two other hotels of the same general quality. There is a Chili's that is a short walking distance but otherwise you will need to eat at the hotel or drive to get some food. There are lots of food choices along Mira Mesa Blvd which is close.
The room was very comfortable but nothing fancy. The bed was comfortable. The room had a small microwave and an under counter refrigerator. The tv is 40 inch and had Direct TV access which I have never seen in even more expensive hotels.
A big plus at this hotel is a complementary full buffet style breakfast. They have lots of menu choices. The breakfast is a least worth $10. If you have kids or are on a budget, this is a definite plus. I liked that the hours were expanded, 6-10 during the week and 7-11 on the weekends.
There is a small but adequate pool and a spa in the back of the hotel. Each was typical of a hotel of this quality. The only negative was there were dozens of 8 or 9 year old soccer players staying there and they took over the pool and the spa. If you stay on weekend during soccer season, you may run into this. But once they left, there was peace, quiet and sanity.
Check in was quick, efficient and professional.
Overall, I would definitely stay here again. It is well worth the money which was not that much.
