We could only stay one night in this up-scale Quality Inn. It is close to it all. A short cab ride from the Airport. (less than $10) Within a short bus ride to Old Town and connections to the San Diego Trolley and the international border. And all sorts of shopping tourist activities. Who needs a car?

Pretty mediocre hotel. Worst part was the sagging matresses. Woke up with a terrible backache! The hotel could definitely use some upgrading. Only reason we were there was because we bought on hotwire. Won't do that again!

1st we drove around for 20 min. to find parking, the front desk shrugged their shoulders when we asked where to park. While in the parking lot, a lower gang looking car pulled through slowly while staring at the other gang member looking guys standing outside the restaurant, which is really a Club/bar. We were pretty scared at that point,... More
