Overpriced budget motel room.

Posted Oct 11, 2014
Pros: The one thing that this hotel has going for it is the cleaning staff. They did an excellent job.
Cons: Heating and cooling are terrible. Mattresses are old and worn out. Get a friendly staff that makes customers feel welcome.
Location: Old Town San Diego is nice to visit for a couple of hours, no more. There is nothing to do except eat mexican food that is "meh" at best.
This motel is old and wore out. The staff appears to tolerate guests rather than welcome them. I would say that they are charging double what this place is worth. I am very disappointed in myself as I booked this hotel based on the name Merriot. Don't let that fool you, this is not a nice hotel. It is an overpriced budget room.

The new management is updating the hotel, and has added to the breakfast area. Breakfast had the usual choices, coffee was good. Staff was very nice.. we arrived late in the evening were invited to use the parking lot without charging the usual fee. The room was large and bed very comfortable but the air-conditioing fan was loud and the "updating" of the room was incomplete. I will stay there again because of the location and expect that the rooms will be gradually brought up to Marriott standards.

Nice hotel, right in old town.

Stayed one night, for an event in old town. Liked the, kind of village atmosphere of the hotel. Staff was really nice. Will definitely stay here again.

clean and close to attractions

Little pricey, had to additionally pay for underground parking unless you can find street parking, but had a decent breakfast and walking distance from old town and bus depot for the beach. Expedia booked us a room with a balcony and it was clean.

Great location!

The hotel has a lovely Hispanic charm with great courtyard spaces complete with fountains. The complimentary breakfast buffet has a great selection and is kept clean and well-stocked. Seating is good and includes an outdoor courtyard area as well. The bed was very comfortable. The location is walking distance to Old Town, just minutes from the airport, and a quick drive to the zoo. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others!

Einfaches Hotel nahe Zentrum

Posted Aug 31, 2014
Zimmer sind in einem schlechten Zustand, das Frühstück kann man nicht als solches bezeichnen. Maximal für eine Nacht zu empfehlen.
