I like that this property has clean rooms, nice up-to-date look on its lobby and overall building. I would love to give this property 5 stars, but there are few nuisance that I encountered that couldn't be fixed by the hotel in an instant. For example, the internet was very slow. Also, the door to the bathroom was hanging 'in...

Good value and convenient to I-805 with easy access to downtown attractions. The breakfast buffet offered some different options each day. The staff was very friendly and helpful regarding travel times in the busy San Diego traffic.
