The hotel is quite far from Downtown so we had to take cabs all the time. Right across the road there are a couple of really good restaurants, one Korean and one Mediterranean which are really worth the money! However that is just about the one good thing about it! The hotel is old, tired, the wifi is really bad...

The California Suites hotel is a basic 2* hotel, with some minor pro's and con's. Pro's. Convenient location (near major freeways, shopping, Walmart, restaurants). Self serve Laundry (4-5 machines). Refurbished and clean rooms, Nice pool, in room, Microwave and refrigerators, low cost (for San Diego). Con's. Dated property, No elevators, slow check in, spotty wifi, limited breakfast (bagels, cereal, juice)....

For what we payed to stay here for a week we were very pleased. Friendly staff, clean, comfortable room, nice pool, right next to the freeway, a good base to explore San Diego and the surrounding area.

California Suites Hotel has an old school LA feel. If you appreciate grungy 80's style, then you might like this place. I personally liked the feel of it. The layout was confusing and labrynth-like. The room numbers don't seem to be arranged in any particular order, they are just kinda scrambled. We had a hard time finding our room, but...

I partially blame Travelocity for this stay. We overpaid for a Queen room that was listed for 4, but barely held 2. Room we booked was to have sofa sleeper or roll away. Neither were available. I will be sticking to chains I know and will not trust Travelocity for hotel reservations again.

I've stayed here twice. It's not a grand hotel but worth the price you pay. Their facilities are okay. The bus stop is just a few steps from the hotel if you don't have a car. The restaurants are just near. I just walked going to walmart. A 10-15minute slow walk is not bad. Hotel staffs are accomodating. I checked...

Stayed for 5 nights. Clean but plainer room with kitchenette but no dishes. Staff very helpful; kept my room clean and neat; maintenance provided an immediate fix to leaky toilet. Breakfast simple but plentiful. Grounds very clean and trimmed; pool and jacuzzi clean and fresh each day.

This hotel is a large motel type place with people renting by the week, month, and like us by the day. It is not in the nicest part of town but is very secure. The room has everything you would need to stay longer than a day. There is no open computer to book flight arrangements, and the staff person...
