Everything was just fine. A couple of loud guests. I feel like this is a good hotel for the price. This is for everything: the cheaper the place the less you should expect including from other guests.

Nice upgrade when I arrived. Cool room and everything was great until the high school dance team started running the halls like maniacs and partying but this was quickly taken care of by hotel staff thank goodness overall it was a good stay.

Clean hotel, comfortable bed and nice staff!!

Great location with everything nearby, staff was extremely friendly, check in was easy, free parking, the room was clean, provides breakfast & enjoyed the pool.

The only complaint i have is the refrigerator in the room made a popping sound and kept me awake all night. It was not hidden behind any dresser drawer or anything as they are sometimes this property lax certain amenities. I don’t think I will stay at this property again

nice rooms, pool area had a lot of trash. Coffee station could open at 6 instead of 6:30

Very easy to get to, Freeway right around the corner. Quiet, and nice comfortable bed. They extended my check out until 2;00 pm, with no problems. Grab and go breakfast! Nice and clean, with Covid-19! Close to beaches and all attractions too!

Internet services is not a good condition. Stopping of it was many times during my staying Yesterday,

Sofa bed was so old. Okey to use as couch, Not comfy to use as a bed

My Marine Grandson got married which is why we flew into San Diego, the hotel iwas close to the beach,restaurant’s,and other stores that we were able to shop at, it was also close to where the rehearsal dinner was held at and where the weddding it self was held at as well

The hotel was undergoing renovations during our stay. It wasn't known to us when we booked. It should have been clearly indicated on the website at the time of booking.

Nice location near to our destination. Checked in late and its under renovation. The security personnel politely guided us to enter a locked main door.

Hotel was under construction and we did not know this when we booked. it was a horrible inconvenience and there many parking issues. The rooms smelled of mold from the HVAC systems, the beds were uncomfortable, we did not get the type of rooms that we booked, and the furniture in the room was falling apart. We won't be staying at this hotel again, when we return to the area.

Very convenient in terms of location and access to the freeway. They are in the midst of a remodel, however. The check-in desk is a reconverted room on the first floor and half the parking lot is taken with construction equipment and materials. That means evening parking was at the farthest end of the lot

Hotel is smelly and not what I expected for the price I paid. Also I paid for two queens and upon checking in, they have noticed posted stating they. only offer one King or two full size beds. My husband and I felt like sardines in s full size bed and uncomfortable. We will not be returning.

Breakfast was a bit lacking but otherwise a good stay.

Cleanliness was lacking. I have stayed here before with no issue so I am going to assume someone just didnt want to do their job. The room had an unpleasant odor and the shower literally had hair from the previous guest in it.

We were going to a wedding nearby and stayed in the hotel. It was a fine place to sleep for the night. No problems.
