Nice Hotel to visit zoo

Posted Aug 31, 2014
Pros: If you stay in the main section, the room are very nice for the price. Continental breakfast has a decent variety, with a waffle machine.
Cons: The area that they have breakfast in is not large enough. The hotel is usually very busy, but there is not a lot to work with to improve it.
Location: The safari park and zoo are near by. We went to a concert at Humphries By The Bay. Half hour away. Much better rates here for a room.
I had always wondered since I have stayed here 3 times before, why this place has gotten bad ratings. This time I found out why. I had made reservations a month in advance. We were running late, so were not able to check in until after midnight. Yes, they were full. We were given one of the smallest rooms that they had and not even a queen bed. More like full. The room was so small, we had to monitor the air or it became really cold, really quickly. The bathroom had a pedestal sink and stall shower. Not the kind with a sliding glass door, so water leaked on the floor when used. On a good note, the bed WAS comfortable, if not large enough. The couple that checked in behind us got a much nicer room. I saw what part of the hotel they went to. I had stayed in that section before. Those are very nice rooms. I feel if I am a return customer and made my reservations so far in advance, I should have had a much better room saved. If you make reservations, make sure to request that you get a room in the main section of the hotel. You do NOT want to stay in the smaller section at the top of the lot!! Those are very small rooms. Other wise, I have always had a good experience with this hotel. No matter what room I have been in, the bed has always been comfortable and the room is clean. .I have a bad back, so that is an essential. But, now I may think twice about coming back.

adequate hotel close to Safari Park

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Location and cleanliness
Location: Close to San Diego Safari Park and good restaurants downtown Escondido
This hotel is older and very small room and bathroom, but adequate since we were there only to shower and sleep. It is very clean, has a refrigerator, micorwave, large tv and comfortable bed. It is close (couple of miles) to downtown and restaurants, and about 8 miles to San Diego Safari Park. Breakfast is cereal and waffles, but Golden Egg with awesome omelets is a couple of miles away. Overall it worked.

Basic

Posted Jul 16, 2014
This is not a hotel. It is a motel with outside access. The rooms are modest. Bathroom has just about enough space to turn around. Wall mounted sink with no counter space. Furniture showed wear but room was clean with newer paint , carpet and door.

Simple family run motel

Posted Jul 3, 2014
We were there for a few days. We had two of the cheaper rooms, which were simple but functional. The best part about this place is the family running it. They were friendly and made us feel comfortable. Unlike other places, the breakfast was always stocked and refilled. We will definitely stay there again.

Good Hotel

Posted Jul 2, 2014
Pros: The king size bed.
Cons: When we first signed in the man at the counter didn't give us much instruction like when the breakfast was open.
Location: We went to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park and the San Diego State Fair.
Nice and quiet at night. We were near the pool and soda machine so I was worried about the noise, but it was quiet.
