“Great hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

I found a great rate on this suite hotel for my family while visiting San Diego. It is a little out of the way if you want to be more central to the Zoo, Sea World, etc, located in a business district, but the rooms are nice and clean, spacious for families, excellent free breakfast, free Internet and parking, something that is hard to find in hotels around here! heated outdoor pool and great front desk staff. They were out of cribs when I arrived and come bedtime my toddler was running around the room and I was not happy! The staff was very helpful in my moment of desperation and a crib was found! Stay was great, highly recommend!

Rokeedy,
Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience with us and other potential guests. It is wonderful to hear you were able to find a great deal on your reservation, with the added value of free parking, internet, and complimentary breakfast buffet. It is also nice to hear that despite the baby cribs reportedly being all taken, the staff was able to locate a baby crib for you and allow you some rest and relaxation at night! Although, as you pointed out, there are other hotels closer to Sea World or the Zoo, but we hope our central location can be a good hopping point to visit all San Diego has to offer including LegoLand, Safari Park, La Jolla, and of course Sea World, the Zoo and the downtown area. Thank you again for sharing this review, and hopefully your family will come stay with us again the next time you visit San Diego!

This hotel even exceeded our expecations! Quiet suburb location, friendly staff, large and comfortable room, excellent breakfast (they even had the porridge that I miss so much when travelling!). Our son enjoyed making the waffles himself! The restaurant in the hotel is very good, and there is also a tex-mex cantina nearby serving great steaks.
We really loved this hotel!

KoYany,
We are so excited to hear about your stay with us. It is great to hear your family enjoyed the complimentary breakfast buffet in the morning, and your son was able to make some waffles! Living in Florida, I'm sure you have little reason to leave and vacation, but if you do get the chance to come back and visit San Diego, we hope you will consider staying with us again.

This was one of the best stays at a hotel that my husband and I have had. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the fantastic morning breakfast and were especially pleased with the care take to keep the food hot and any time they ran low they were watchful and brought out more. One of the servers was especially attentive and polite and paid great attention to detail. As well, one of the maintenance men even helped my husband out with some motorcycle repairs.
The room was great, the view was wonderful and overall it made our vacation and visit with our daughter one of the best yet!

From guest services at sign-in to the morning breakfast and the evening night-cap or dinner this hotel is a real find. The front desk personnel are very helpful, maintenance is quick, services are well beyond what I expected. I was there for business for nearly a month.

There were limited exceptions to the superlative experience I had at the hotel - insignificant enough to not merit mention. In fact there are not enough good things I can say about the staff and the facility.

I have recommended this hotel to my co-workers, clients, and directors alike.

Rob, thank you very much for sharing such kind remarks with our staff. On behalf of our entire team, I want to share how much we appreciate the recognition. Although a stay of nearly a month can be difficult, we will do our best to continue and provide the comfort and level of service that you mentioned and hopefully leave you with that feeling of being "home away from home." Take care, and we look forward to seeing you on your next trip to San Diego.
