We went here for a family trip to SeaWorld & the Zoo. It was an easy drive to and from each place. The hotel is about a half mile (if that) away from I-5 and easy access to stores nearby. It wasn't noisy, which is surprising for being on a main road. The check-in with (Sara) and check-out was done... More

We had a soccer tournament this past weekend and had a group of about 10 kids and 4 adults. The sorrounding area of the hotel seems a little on the ghetto side but once you go up the drive way you feel safe. Our check in was nice and easy and quick. The rooms are very clean and up to... More

The convenance of its location near the highway, the cleanliness of the rooms and friendliness of the staff made this a fine stay that I would consider again the next time I'm in San Diego.
