CeCe was very kind and went out of her way to help me with my reservations. Areli and Laurie would always greet me warmly and made me feel like family. They would keep a couple of chocolate chip cookies behind the desk so that I would have some when returning late from work. Sara was just fantastic in the breakfast... More

Nothing to write home about. Service ppl were very nice. Its beautiful on the outside and also when you step in to the lobby. Very clean . But once you leave the front desk its kinda like a blast from the past. It really needs to be renovated. The carpet throughout the hotel is wall to wall. Gives it an... More

I travel almost every week for work. Rarely do I write a review. It's either good, or bad, but if I write it, the place earned it. CeCe checking me in was one of the employees I'll remember. Great job!

Location good though a bit far from the main town. Room well furnished with two queen beds and clean. Bathroom decent and spacious with provided toiletries. Breakfast was good with a nice spread. Great place to stay though our stay was very short.

We were there for the weekend going sightseeing at Torrey Pines State Park. But the room we stayed in is very clean. The hotel pool is heated which the kids love and they also have the gym to work out. Breakfast is included till noon which is very nice and save us lots of money from eating out. Overall, good...

The front desk staff was extremely friendly. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. Get a room facing away from the street and Chilis. It's kind of loud but the good thing is that you get a decent view of the parking lot so you can check on your car. The breakfast selection is good. They have a... More

Great location and staff. Very accomodating we arrived late on a rainy spring night. Chili's in the same parking lot, so convenient. We will stay here again. May become our home base whenever we are in San Diego. Close to all the entertainments we enjoy when in this area.
