sauberes Hotel zentral gelegen

Posted Aug 7, 2016
Pros: Obwohl eigentlich die Lage ausschlaggebend war und unsere Erwartungen hier auch vollstens erfüllt wurden, war das Personal das eigentliche Highlight.
Cons: Leider klemmte die Badezimmertür sehr stark und am Pool waren keine Handdtüche vorhanden.
Location: Mit dem Auto nach Carl 10 min zu erreichen sind der Strand und Sea World, San Diego Zoo ca. 15 min ebenso wie die Altstadt, Hafen und der Balboa Park
Wir ( Eltern, zwei Kinder) haben uns für drei Tage San Diego angesehen. Das Hotel haben wir uns vor allem wegen der guten Lage ausgesucht. Angenehm überrascht wurden wir von den außerordentlich freundlichen und zugewandten Personal überrascht. Obwohl kein Safe im Zimmer vorhanden war, wurden unsere Wertsachen kostenfrei verwahrt. Für amerikanische Verhältnisse ungewöhnlich reichhaltig und vielfältig war das Frühstück.

Location: Very close to SeaWorld and Airport
We loved everything. They had cookies at check-in. The room had Queen sized beds. The room and bathroom were very clean. The breakfast was excellent. The parking was fine. The staff was friendly and helpful. Loved the SeaWorld decorations in the elevator and on the doors of the rooms.

Convenient location

Posted Jul 30, 2016
Pros: Location
Cons: Pool - it is too small. We didn't get a chance to use it, but if it were a bit bigger, we would.
Location: Definitely close to SeaWorld. We went to Mission Beach as well, which wasn't too far.
The hotel is very convenient. We can see SeaWorld fireworks from our room. Walking distance to many restaurants.

Great breakfast

Posted Jul 27, 2016
Did not expect such a large choice of quality included breakfast. From Turkey sausage to perfect pancakes to good selection of beverages. Will definitely stay again when on San Diego. When consider how much you pay for breakfast in restaurants these days, it with forgoing those hotels without breakfast for cheaper fees or even the one with optional breakfast.

A very nice stay.

The rooms were spacious and clean. The hot breakfast was wonderful. Parking was a little complicated, parking spaces are very small. But overall, our stay was pleasant.
