Room was ok. Very nice reception area. Location was ok but due to the near freeway a little bit loud. Big pool in nice area. Don' miss the great breakfast in the new renovated Amigo spot (10% after check-in :o)

Thank you for sharing your review. We are glad that you were pleased with the hotel and our breakfast diner, the Waffle Spot. All guests get discounts for both restaurants at check in and can ask for additional coupons whenever they need them. We hope everyone decides to dine with us during their stay. More

I was stay here when in San Diego. The staff is great, rooms are spacious and clean. The location is close to everything and the onsite restaurants are convenient and the service and food are amazing. Would recommend staying here to everyone.

We usually stay here because of the convienece and location, friendly atmosphere. Rooms are clean and response to get something fixed is immediately done. We especially enjoy eating at the waffel spot and the amigo restaurant's on the premises and prices are very reasonable.

Although this hotel was built in 1959, it has been renovated and is very clean. The rooms are small and reminded me of traveling when I was a kid, but they were very clean. The Waffle King restaurant has excellent food and great customer service as well. They have a nice pool and jacuzzi. We will certainly stay there again

Nice hotel. You can tell they took a older hotel and renovated it. Lobby has that old hotel lodge feel. Rooms are nice and clean. Bathroom is a little small but like I said they renovated an existing hotel. Overall I would recommend.

Great place for a little gateway. . Very clean and great service! We ate at their restaurants and they were ok, they're on site so you don't have to drive through that traffic. The pool was nice and heated. Rooms were comfortable and spacious.

The rooms were very clean and neat. Although the place was more like a 70 style atmosphere it was all very new looking furniture and fixtures. We will be definitely staying here again. We were also very close to everything not far from Petco Park where we went and to Old Town too. Loved loved loved it.
