If I was only rating our hotel room, I'd give a higher score. However, the stench from the breakfast area was rancid... like a mixture of rotten milk, eggs, and fish. Our room was on the 4th floor, which is where breakfast is held. The smell went all the way down the hallway, and on the first morning I could...

A typical basic motel just off a very busy highway so lots of noise from the room. Pool area is ok and has a spa. Free parking and a couple of eateries within walking distance. Cheap and cheerful to be honest, would definitely recommend paying a bit more and staying down in the harbour area.

The rooms were clean, quiet and conveniently located. Close to the airport, Seaworld, Old Town, The Zoo and Balboa Park. The free breakfast was great. The pool and hot tub were also very nice. There is no restaurant on site but there is a great restaurant within walking distance. It is called Hunter Steakhouse and it is fabulous.

My first impression was a little disappointing. The lobby is sparsely decorated, not very inviting. However, the young man that greeted me was so pleasant and accommodating. He was able to check me in, even though I was 2 hours early. The room was very nice and clean. The bed was super comfy as were the pillows. The location wasn't...

We stayed here for one night. Good location. Close to the zoo and Seaworld. Nicely appointed rooms. Comfortable beds. Lift is noisy so try and get a room further away. Breakfast was good. Good service at the front desk. Heated pool which was warm enough to swim in in winter. Nice spa pool.

Naomi12016, Thank you for the fabulous review, and we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Please know that we are in the midst of upgrading the elevator in question that was close to your room in order to minimize the noise impact for future guests. Please come back and visit us again!

Affordable hotel with pool, hot tub, breakfast included. WiFi, however was unreliable from all parts of the property. I had to walk to a nearby hotel to use theirs. Also there was no business center. No restaurants in the immediate area but Old Town is 5 minutes away by car or there is a city bus every half hour from...

Cheddahead, Thank you for the feedback, and I am sorry that the WiFi was not up to your expectations. This has prompted me to have a full site survey conducted by our third party vendor in order to resolve any issues for future guests. While it can be disconcerting to face a parking charge, please know that we have made...

Been here before over a year ago. Staff friendly, very helpful. This is a different style of room from my last. This room is a double bed room. Separate little divided room with couch and TV. Then the bed area has a TV. Bathroom snug door doesn't open to wide. Only issue was mold on the temp handle ring. 😕

It was sufficient as hotels go. The best part was the pool/spa area. The bed was on the firm side and that is a positive. The road noise was a little much for my taste. It was pretty close to downtown and the MCRD.

Stayed here for 3 nights and the staff has been very helpful. The breakfast is really good and has a lot of choices, including several waffle stations so no lines. Avoid having to pay the $13 parking fee per day by parking on the street in front of the hotel. Avoid a room on the 4th floor near breakfast room...

My family recently stayed in this property. They advertise as a 3 time award winning hotel. Maybe so, 20-25 years ago. The carpet was filthy. This is a old hotel. The A/C and Heat in 4 of our 6 rooms would not work. The owners need to put some money back into this place. The employees were friendly and helpful,...
