On arrival, they told me they couldn't find my name in the reservation list. I told them I am confirmed and showed them the confirmation email from Travelocity in my phone. They asked for my ID, then told me I have already checked in earlier. Wow?!?! But they gave me a room anyway. The room was nice and cozy, not very large but with good window blinds and curtains that I slept soundly and didn't realize right away that it was already 9:30 in the morning! So I missed the complimentary breakfast because of that, LOL! (I honestly wished that the breakfast lasted until at least 10:30 like they do in Marriott.) The only really bad thing about this hotel stay (aside from somebody else being able to check in under my name) are two tiny spiders I found in the bathroom (one of which was in the towels). Nothing scary as they are the common jumping spiders found in EVERY house in America (look deeper if you think you don't have any in your home), but I didn't expect to find them in my hotel room nonetheless (first time for me). Last thing (and I don't want to take this against the hotel), the location is in the last exit from the freeway before you get to the point-of-no-return towards Mexico. Yup, there's no turning back if you miss that exit. And when you leave the property, there's only two options... go straight down the road to Mexico (no turning back once again) or turn right to get to the US. Make sure you don't miss that turn, hehe. Back to Marriott next time for me!

I dislike how it states you won’t be charged for canceling a room but yet they still take your money out and say there policies can’t allow that. I will recommend they update they policy that way they don’t screw other people as well especially when it was a misunderstanding and they can’t fix the problem. As for recommendations to go there I will tell everyone from now on how crappy their service is and they’ll screw you over

Great location.

Pros: staff and location
Cons: better restaurants near by
Location: Only nice restaurants are about 10 miles away.
This hotel is less than one mile from the Otay Mesa border crossing. This check point is less crowded than the TJ crossing. The hotel is clean and the staff are some of the best I have in counted.
