Convenient, Quiet, Close to the Freeways
Posted Feb 6, 2017
This is a great value hotel. I've stayed in many: Hampton's, Holiday Inn Express, et alii. Frankly, this beats them all. Fast check-in. Nice, albeit generic, rooms. Quiet. Away from freeway noise. For an extra $4.95 you get a really high-speed WiFi connection, which I consider to be a great deal. The TVs are small flat panels, but I don't watch TV anyway, so could care less. They have a Bistro (didn't eat there) and a convenience store around the corner. You're 3 miles straight up Camino del Mar to Del Mar Highlands where you will find everything you need: Jimbo's Grocery (Whole Foods-like), casual restaurants, Olive & Baker (a great delicatessan) ... Also, there are no hidden charges here. How many times do I get irritated when I'm charged an automatic $20 Valet fee -- even at a budget hotel -- b/c they don't have guest parking for free?!! Too many, that's how many. Here, there's plenty of free parking. No complaints. Nice shower heads, too! Refrigerators in every room. For the price, it's where I'll stay every time I need to come to North County San Diego.
