We do not suggest anyone staying at this pit. The hotel and area surrounding the hotel are in very poor shape. The staff needs some training in polite manners too. Please find another hotel to stay at - this one is really gross & dangerous.

We came to San Diego for our son's graduation from Marine boot camp. The hotel was clean, safe, comfortable and easy to get to MCRD(about 20 minutes). Great customer service and helpful staff. They were able to direct us to where ever we needed to go. Easy access to major freeways, Wal-Mart, and restaurants! The grounds are beautiful with native...

July our family was able to enjoy San Diego for one night. The staff were very friendly and informative. The room was 2 beds with a kitchenette. This was nice to have some fridge room and counter space. No dishes how ever. The motel had a nice clean pool and hot tub. The grounds were well taken care of and...

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.
