Pros: The hotel is clean, and the staff were nice, welcoming and willing to help.
Cons: Beautyrest Beds??
Location: Access to highway, shopping center, Sea World, Point Loma, and SDSU Hospital, Mercy Hospital, Scripps Hospital.
It was very clean, the beds were fairly comfortable, lots of pillows, but then that is a personal need that we find most hotel beds are somewhat uncomfortable. Working amenities: a small fridge, microwave & small coffee maker. We did not use the pool (for us this is cold weather) but LOTs of guests & children were using it into the late evenings & having a good time. There seemed to be lots of families and it was nice to see they all were friendly. Our upstairs neighbors were very noisy - could hear them into the late night - not comfortable calling and complaining. The staff was responsive as someone else did complain and they quieted immediately but still - the rooms do carry noise. But this hotel was very good for the price and very clean!

Would of been perfect but we were waken before 8 am. Lots of noise outside my door. The cleaning staff should know some people are on a short vacation and may want to sleep in. Super aggravating.

The hotel is good if you get a descent price. It's far from downtown and about three miles from old town San Diego. There is a trolley about one mile away which helps with the commute since taking a car into downtown is expensive due to parking fees. The problem with that comes when you stay out past midnight since that is when the trolley stops running. If u don't have to go to disntoen there are plenty of eateries within three mikes away, and there is a mall one mike away. Overall, not a bad place to stay.

Pros: Location. Cleanliness. Also there was a very helpful 'concierge' in the hotel lobby with lots of information about places to go in San Diego.
Location: Close to zoo and Balboa Park. Only 20 minutes to the beaches.
Our room was clean and spacious. Heard a bit of noise from people walking in the room above us but no real problem. Hotel Circle is a great location - close to lots of tourist sites. We'll stay here again.
