Pros: Location.
Cons: It could be maintained better.
Stayed there 18 months ago. Had a spacious suite, but the room smelled very musty. This time we had a room that also smelled really musty and seemed damp. They changed us to another room, no hassle, and it was just fine. The place is old, and has not been kept up very well, but it is in an excellent location. Breakfast was extremely limited and not hot. Price is not cheap; We will stay there again because it is close to my sister's place, not because we like it. But the staff is very nice and responsive.

reasonably experience. room very acceptable.

Posted Jul 31, 2017
Pros: comfort
Cons: hope they can go back to breakfast items that include protein items--scrambled eggs--breakfast meats---waffles. "breakfast Burritos" not our desire.
Location: well located. right off freeway. restaurants nearby. shopping nearby.
we had expected to be able to have the same breakfast items we had during previous stays at this hotel--unfortunately--- the breakfast is now Continental breakfast style. very disappointed.

Nice hotel close to Safari Park

Posted Jul 24, 2017
Pros: Very convenient to Safari Park
Cons: Needs a facelift.
Location: Close to Safari Park.
Wonderful staff, good breakfast selection. The hotel could really use a facelift. It was clean and convenient but a bit on the shabby side.

Convenient and comfortable

Posted Jul 23, 2017
Pros: I like a small hotel and this was perfect. And with a pool. The gym looked awesome although I didn't get to use it..all the equipment you could want.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind
Location: Location is perfect off the interstate, with major stores and chain restaurants right across the street..even walking distance. Coco's & Stone Brewery
I choose this hotel because I needed to be near family in both Escondido area and in San Diego, it was perfect. Friendliest staff ever..clean, small and cozy, and a great pool. Close to highways, shopping, and don't miss Stone Brewery! Literally down the road.

Hotel is a Flop

Posted Jul 3, 2017
This hotel is in need of a makeover...Totally not worth the price...(We paid over 191.00 with taxes...)....The room was stuffy and warm...Will never stay at this property again...
