“Great value...insufficient closet space...loved the tea and cookies in the evenings”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Abou a 15 minute drive to SD, this unpretencious high value hotel is woth it. Break fast is good, they make an effort to have some daily variety, but after a week long stay, the scrambled eggs although good, could use an alternative; wait staff is very friendly, as well as front desk personnel. Rooms are spacious and clean, but there is hardle any closet space, my beau and I stayed for a week and I had no place to unpack. There is no noise as the hotel is in a business area with two other hotels next door. They set out cofee and tea all day, granola bars in the morning a yummy cookies in the evening, plus if there was no hot water or coffee the front desk staff would happily and immediadtely bring me some. Parking and breakfast are included, big plus. A safe hotel choice, will look for this brand in the future, congratulations to themanagement and staff.

Room Tip: Our room on the top floor was toward the back in a corner, no noise problems.

It is great to hear that you and your beau had an enjoyable stay as our guests, and had the chance to try some cookies and tea in evening! We hope to see you again during your next visit to San Diego!

This hotel was such a nice surprise!
I stayed there while taking my young daughter to the SD Zoo. It is in a covenient location. The location was very safe.
I love that the rooms have a small fridge and microwave. The breakfast was very good.
But the service and small touches put the hotel over the top. As an example, the front desk called me after I got to my room to make sure everything was OK, the maid service did all the little things like leaving new plastic bags every day for the ice bucket, and I was always welcomed into the hotel by the desk staff.
My daughter and I stayed at neighboring hotels and tried their free breakfast. County Inns was so much better. The service staff were constantly refilling empty items and cleaning tables so new guests could be seated. It was excellent.
I would recommend it for business travel or vacation travel.

Room Tip: All the rooms are newly refurbished and great.

Where to begin? First off, our rooms were very comfortable. They have queen size beds, huge comforters, working AC, a big bathroom, etc. Second, they have a monsterous spread for breakfast in the morning. It's complimentary, and while they say they close at 9:30, they were still serving at 10:30. They also have an outdoor heated room, many conference rooms, an office room, and the staff is very friendly. They have cookies coffee, and lemon water down in the lobby. I can say with complete honesty, this is the best hotel I've ever stayed in!

I am a priceline-oholic, and priceline sent me here ! What a great place. Free internet, free parking, free continental & cooked breakfast (and a good breakfast too !), free coffee in the lobby (and rooms), free cookies in the lobby in the evening. Quiet too. No room safe, but the lobby deposit boxes are easy to access, and I was never made to feel that is was any trouble to access the deposit boxes. Great staff. You will need a car tho. Pleasure to stay at this property, I would select it as my out of town default property choice from now on.

Room Tip: Not sure if you need to make a request ... I think all the rooms would be great.
