The grounds and rooms are very dirty. The area that is it located is not the greatest either. There seems to be quite a bit of crime around the hotel. We don't recommend this hotel to anyone.

I'll agree with most others reviewing California Suites. It is very reasonably priced compared to most other hotels in the San Diego area. However, there is definitely a creepy feel to the place. Way too many locked gates seperarating you from the outside (not a good indicator of the neighborhood). The room was definitely dated and on a very hot...

Very reasonably priced & safe-feeling on grounds - family-friendly. Front desk staff (including management) can be quite rude; variable maid service. If you can avoid the rude or ignorant front-desk staff (there were a few that were OK) and be sure that maid service does what is supposed to, it can be a pleasant place. Rooms are your basic motel-style....

This hotel was such a good deal that I set my expectations quite low and was pleasantly surprised. The hotel staff were wonderful and genuinely concerned for the comfort and security of their guests. The rooms are not the best part of this hotel...average in size, with a small bathroom, two double (not queen) beds that were not superior in...

Other reviewers must have extremely low expectations. First off, my reservation would have been terminated at 10pm if I hadn't phoned from the airport saying our flight was delayed and we'd only be landing in SAN at midnight. Secondly, after telling them we wouldn't have the rental car we'd booked, they said there were no airport shuttles and we were...

Had awesome time in San Diego and California Suites Hotel was definitely a good choice. Great value for your money, have absolutely no complaints. The room was spacious with a kitchen unit and bathroom. We had room service everyday, the hotel provides fresh towels and other usual bits like soap etc. Staff was helpful and very nice. Hotel provides inclusive...

Although we stayed longer than a weekend. Us LADIES called it our STRESS-FREE weekend and that it was. You never know what you're going to get for such a reasonable price, but we got it all. The Staff is friendly and helpful with directions, locations, information in general. The pool was heated which some hotels only say heated pool. They...

Very nice clean place. Clean rooms. Great Price! I really liked it my one problem was that we stayed across from the pool so at night when we were trying to rest all you can hear is "marco polo" and in the middle of the night it sounded like a herd of cows were above us. But othere than that...

Two night stay on April 8th and 9th to catch a few Padres games. Hotel is clean with very resonable rates that won't hurt anyones budget. Every room faces inward to a well landscape garden oasis which makes for the perfect sound barrier to keep things quite in the evening. Easy 10 minute drive to downtown or any other attractions...
