A Comfortable Stay in San Diego

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Location, comfort, and friendliness
Cons: Better lighting and an added mirror would help
Location: Convenient to many of the great San Diego entertainment spots, the beaches, San Diego Zoo, and great restaurants !
The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable, but strictly from a female point of view,it had only one mirror and the lighting was very dim for applying one's make-up. All in all, I would definitely come back for another visit !

Quiet hotel friendly staff

Posted May 4, 2014
Pros: Location and the quiet rooms
Location: This hotel was handy to the zoo and a few malls
Quiet hotel with friendly staff. Free parking and you need a car to go to restaurants but the hotel does have one that is quite nice, Good size room and the best coffee we had in the states

Nice lobby, friendly staff.

Posted Apr 30, 2014
Pros: The staff and lobby.
Cons: The lights in the bathroom were to dim. Very noisy.
Location: Restraunts near by. Down town only 20 minutes away.
Not as close to the attractions as I thought. But freeway drive wasn't that far. Ate in dining room one night, service and food very good.

Great and honest service!

Posted Apr 29, 2014
Nice, clean and friendly staff. We had to move rooms as we were by an ice machine that was quite loud and the staff promptly accommodated our request. In the process we forgot a few items in the room and only noticed 2 days later. For our surprise it was in their lost and found with the room number and date. It was great to have our items returned to us.

Nice hotel, not too far from downtown

Posted Apr 28, 2014
Our hotel was nice. It smells a bit like big spray but aside form that the room is comfy. There's not much of a view from anywhere but it's not a far distance from pretty much all the fun parts of San Diego. The pool is heated and the room service is great. The front counter staff was mixed, meaning some were very helpful and some weren't. Overall it was a good experience.

Functional for our stay, but WiFi was so S L O W!!

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Pros: Starbucks coffee available in lobby in the AM.
Cons: Internet situation - described above.
We were in San Diego to help our son move into a new apt. We needed to stay in this area of town, and the location fit our needs well. We both need internet to do business, so it was advertised as FREE and High Speed, and yet it was not connecting at all. A staff person arrived to blame it on our computer?? I left it alone and walked away. REturning in about 10 minutes the page for logging in was on the screen. This continued to happen all three days we were there. As long as you were not in a hurry, and clicked to log into the internet, I just had to wait several minutes for the log in page to appear. I think that they do this so people will get frustrated and decide to pay $4.95 a night for "higher speed". Seems like a raquet to me.

Nice room but so so breakfast experience

Posted Mar 18, 2014
Breakfast was average...many things depleted after the morning rush...disappointed that I paid extra for a breakfast and room package. The only difference was an omelettes...not really worth the extra expense..
