Not too attractive hotel to prefer

Pros: Cooling
Cons: Breakfast Service needs to be highly improved.
Rates are too high compared to other hotels but facility and breakfast stuff was too much poor.

Good for something last minute

I was happy with how clean the room was. The bed was a little rough and the sheets were like paper but for the price of this room being only a few miles off a great beach its not bad.

Misleading title/location

I recently stayed in this hotel. When it says minutes it means it. You are 5 miles from the Mexico border, 20 minutes to San Diego. This is not a hotel to stay in if you want to be in down town San Diego or near by. It is located pasted Chula Vista on the I-5 South. the room was infested with ants and the bathroom had mold in it. Not a good experience as a first time travel agency customer.
