We stayed here and had a wonderful time. Our room was more than what we expected. It was clean, spacious and most of all made our stay comfortable. After our stay I found out that I left my rosary given to me by my parents. Rose was more than generous enough to help locate it and mail it to my...

Nice, welcoming and definitely convenient to UDSU. Good isolation .... Even if it's very close to the freeway is not noisy at all! There are at least 3 restaurants within walking distance.... More just less than 5 minutes away. Friendly, helpful staff.

Very friendly and polite staff. Neat and clean room. Excellent breakfast. The pool location wasn't good, so we didn't get to use it. The laundry room and breakfast both on the same floor I was staying, it felt like home. I throughly enjoyed my stay in San Diego.
