Felt right at home in the suite!

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, centrally located, easily accessible from the freeway
When I booked the room I just knew I was getting a bi-leve suite and didn't know what to expect. Myself, husband and 3 kids were very happy with the suite! It had a very nice kitchen , living room with sleeper sofa and chimney, a private kingsize bedroom with full bath and internet connection, upstairs was a large loft/bedroom with queen size bed and full bathroom. We also enjoyed the hot, buffet-style breakfast in the mornings. We traveled to San Diego last summer but were unable to book another room there due to availability but this is our #1 choice when visiting San Diego. I like the area - centrally located! About 15 inutes from downtown, about 10 to La Jolla, about 10 to Miramar and about 30 minutes to Legoland! The only thing we did not like was the green carpet - needs updating.. Overall, we all loved this suite! The teenager was happy and so were the little kids! Lots of space for a family!

Great stay!

Staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. Sleeping arragements great for mid-size family. The full Kitchen was slightly out dated, yet everything was clean and in working condition. A life saver because we traveled with an infant. Hotels area was city/business like, not much to do or walk to. Short drives to all kinds of fun family attractions though. Breakfast was nice the kids love waffles and the OJ. We loved the warm coffee with flavored creamers! Our family checked out with clean clothes packed due to a laundry facility on site... another plus with small children! All of us agreed that we'd love to stay another day!

LOVED this place

This room was exactly what I needed for our family of 5 - which included a teenager, 7 and 9 year olds. We stayed in ina bi-level suite which was very roomy, very clean and very nice. The room had a fully equiped kitchen, kingsize master bedroom with its own bathroom, and a fireplace in the livingroom with a full size sleeper sofa. The upstairs loft consisted of a double bed and another bathroom. The full breakfast bar had a little of everything, which was delicious. The pool is heated. For our future family stays in San Diego, we are booking at this hotel. The location is so convenient - close to EVERYTHING!

This is a Great Hotel

We really liked our room with it's full size kitchen, livingroom, and large bathroom. The breakfast was good except that the staff was't able to keep it stocked and they were busy each time we went.

Almost great...

Loved location and stocked kitchen...eased traveling with toddler and having leisurely breakfasts. Included breakfast was hot and excellent. Unfortunately, nightly calls to the third party internet troubleshooters were required. VERY time-consuming and irritating--too much like work! Also, heavy machinery operation in suite over ours at 8 AM (this is vacation!) for renovations...and the pool was also unavailable, but no one mentioned that when we booked. It sounds a bit awful, but the staff was kind, apologetic and accommodating. Would stay here again, but not before asking questions!

great stay

Only about 15 minutes from the zoo and Sea World. Lots of restaurants nearby, and a continental breakfast included. We booked early and got a great rate.
