I spend a lot of time in different hotels all over the country, and this one is as expected for a Four Points. The room was clean and the air conditioner worked. We didn't have a rental car so didn't have to pay the $32/night parking, nor did we opt for paying for the hotel breakfast. I was a little...

Before I started this, I saw others bashing this hotel in other reviews. Nobody is perfect, so stop knocking. This hotel may not have fridge or microwave in room or not be shiny new, the staff goes out of their way to make your stay pleasant. Props to the management and staff for being on point. It started when I...

This hotel was not friendly. Customer Service did not exist and more importantly this hotel is old, dirty, smells like urine. I booked a bay view and front desk overlooked that minor/big detail. We had to be moved to another room a day later. No one offered to help us move. The rooms are too small and everything looks ten...

This is a nice hotel in appearance but our overall stay was unacceptable. The air conditioner did not work nor did the mini fridge. Further more, the staff were extremely rude. Especially the female at the front desk. Upon Check Out, The staff claimed that the room smelled like smoke and proceeded to march us back up to the room....

This hotel is next to a freeway, has a really dated look and the rooms are worn. The main thing differentiating this hotel from run of the mill motels is $32 a night parking charge! Overall, I and my family had a very average experience and we were glad that our stay was only for one night.

PROPERTY: Step into the cozy clean lobby and immediately feel relaxed. The property is adjacent to I-5 and a few minutes from SAN airport. The area is surrounded by residential condominiums/apartments and safe to walk around during day and night. A common ATM machine is located in the lobby. Two computers and a printer are available for guest's use. Two...

I am a San Diego local and I am begging you...If you are planning to visit our GORGEOUS city, please DO NOT STAY HERE! If I could give this hotel 0 stars it would be too many.
