"20 Minutes from Downtown. Just perfect in many way"
My wife and I had a great stay at this place. Originally we wanted to stay a bit closer to downtown, but the price (and the other reviews) were just too right to ignore this. And we were glad we didn't.
Hotel location, as I said, is about 20-25 minutes away from the San Diego airport/Downtown. In fact, it is about 20-30 mins to just about any good attraction. I always like to check out the surrounding areas of a city, and not just the hyper developed downtown areas. And in this case, this location is just perfect - not too far, not too close. Decent size parking lot - probably enough for about 40-50 cars, I think.
The room was a nice size one on the third (and top) floor (Number 32, I think), with a view of the pool and Highway 15 in the distance, and some mountains far away. Room's got a nice size kitchen, fully equipped, and small living room area, and a terrific bed. Bathroom was a good size one. All was very, very clean, and fresh.
The check-in was smooth, front desk was excellent. All the staff was polite, and obviously quite proud of the way they keep their property. A decent fitness room (2 high quality treadmills, and an elliptical, along with a full stack of weights) is right next to the heated pool (decent size, again) and Jacuzzi.
Breakfast was excellent with eggs and different styles of potatoes, sausages, waffles, cereal, fruits, yogurt, etc. Dinner is served as well (sometimes BBQ, etc).
Overall, an excellent hotel, and highly recommended.
