Nice hotel reasonably priced close to downtown San Diego. Easy access to interstate 5 which means you can go north and south to explore SD. You do need a car if you’re staying there. Felt safe. Disappointing that no complimentary breakfast was offered. You have to go out for breakfast. There is a restaurant very close by that offers 15% discount for breakfast. Comfortable stay. Nice pool and hot tub towels supplied.

Nice hotel 20 mins fromSan Deigo Centre
Helpful friendly staff and handy access with shuttle bus to metro to get to gas lamp quarter. However hotel has a problem with very noisy ventilation system and noise from bar next door, would recommend rooms away from ventilation shaft and opposite side to bar/restaurant and get ear defenders from reception, if quiet rooms aren't a problem very nice hotel.

Wonderful and Welcoming Stay.
Staff very helpful, friendly and always keen to ensure you're enjoying your stay. Dealt with any questions or queries quickly and efficiently. My room was nice, spacious and in excellent order with a very comfortable bed. The pool area was lovely and well maintained with a hot Jacuzzi; best enjoyed in the evening when the pool area is lit up. The location is remote, but there are plenty of food outlets (not fine dining) within walking distance and a tram/trolley ride taking you into the main town, is just a 5 minute walk away. The free tea/coffee machine in the morning is a nice touch and I would definitely recommend this hotel if central location isn't your priority. I only had 3 days before moving on, but will definitely come back here when I'm next in need of a hotel in the San Diego area.
