Positive Reviews

Great Highway Location

Guests mentioned that this hotel is near the roadway and still manages to be rather quiet. Plus, it's easier to get to other places around the San Diego area with beaches and a number of attractions being nearby.

Perfect for the Pet Friendly Traveler

Visitors remarked that they really enjoyed having the option of traveling with their dogs. This is especially important for people in town for dog shows. However, even just people traveling with their four-legged companion enjoyed this hotel amenity.

Friendly Informed Staff Members

Visitors cited that the employees here have a very welcoming attitude toward their guests. They also cited that they try to do their best they can to make sure visitors have a pleasant stay by treating them with respect and warmth.

Negative Reviews

Not the Best Business Hotel

According to people who were traveling for business, this hotel sees a lot of traffic from families given its proximity to places such as Legoland. That means you'll probably have to contend with the sound of children at various times during the day and night.

Expensive for What's Offered

Some guests mentioned that while the hotel isn't a horrible, they still expected much more for the money they paid. They cited issues such as old in-room decor, noisy air-conditioning and even a pool area that seems outdated and worn. Several guests added that the hotel is due for a modern refurbishing.

Housekeeping Problems Afoot

Guests remarked that they had problems with housekeeping and felt that the rooms could be cleaner. They cite issues including leftover food by the bed, stale smoke in non-smoking rooms and moldy odors.
