We were given a handicapped room and we are NOT HANDICAPPED. We took the room only because we needed to be at a wedding in 1/2 hour. If not for that I would have asked for another room. TV did not work stayed on one channel Very disappointed.

Nice, clean, quiet hotel.

Pros: From the moment we arrived it was all easy. Check-in was easy, getting to the room was easy. The clerk at the counter was wonderful and very nice.
Cons: I can't think of a thing that can be improved upon. I felt the room was a little cramped but that's just me - it's not like you could add on space.
We only stayed one night and with limited time in the room at that. But it was very nice.

Pleasant experience

We were attending a wedding in San Marcos and stayed the night here, before and after the wedding. The staff was attentive, check in was a breeze. We asked for a quiet room, and he suggested the 3rd floor. The beds were comfy, and the size of the room was generous. The breakfast was excellent: eggs, ham, cereals, waffles, and many beverages. I would stay here again!

Pleasant and comfortable

Pros: See above
Cons: Include lightweight blankets on beds
Location: Pleasant small town location. Close to San Diego and beaches.
We just stayed one night to attend a wedding. Hotel was easy to find. We asked for early check-in which they kindly accomodated. Room was pleasant, clean and perfectly adequate for our needs. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. We could have used a lighter blanket which we probably would have gotten if we bothered to ask. The breakfast accomodations were fresh and clean and most satisfying. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
