Rooms were very large and well equipped. Clean.
Creaking noise from upstairs was heard in our room. No king-size beds in any room.
Very friendly staff
Breakfast was very poor and dirty in a small room; most important thing looked as to make you leave as quickly as possible.Quality of safa bed was average; how coulr it be possible to stay with more than 4 people ?
We had a very nice stay. Our rooms were very spacious and clean. We enjoyed ourselves very much. The breakfast room was delightful. We most certainly will stay there again.
The only down side to the hotel is the fact that there is not a swimming pool. It would of been nice to have one for our down time.
the room was larger than expected, plenty of space, vaulted ceilings, flat screen tv in living room.
the hotel staff was rude and unprofessional, breakfast was not that great. Eggs tasted like they were cooked 8 hours ago, dried out, the only fruit was canned mixed fruit which was full of sugar. i wish they had some bananas or apples or something.
We liked the free parking, free wi-fi and the hugh, very clean suite as well as the free hot breakfast.
The key was missing from the safe in our room. Despite daily reminders, the key was still missing throughout our stay. Also, the availability of breakfast items was sporadic. On our first day, everything in the breakfast room was available. On the second day, the waffle griddle was broken and there was no yogurt. On the third day add to the list: there was no regular coffee. On our last day all the above plus 'coffee maker broken' and no juices. This despite our feedback to the front desk each day.
Great Staff, especially Robert and Dee and the desk. On top of everything, courteous, pleasant, well informed. Robert goes out of his way to be the very best at his job. If I knew he was at the desk, I would return anytime. Our room was comfortable and roomy albeit a bit dated.
Unfortunately, I had the displeasure to listen to one of the owners talking loudly in the office while I was waiting at the desk. It is clear that the owner has no understanding of employment law, or good long term business thinking. His plan seemed to be to more concerned with cutting costs by taking unfair advantage of his excellent housekeeping staff and employees and probably violating California labor law. This is a hotel that is great and has even greater potential, but I can only recommend it with reservations because of the cavalier nature of the person in charge. Add value in business, treat your employees fairly, generously, and with respect, run the hotel like it is the best, and strive to be better. Then this would be great.
We liked the very large comfortable room, the kitchen and the two TV's. The bathroom was also a very good size.
The location was central to the San Diego area.. The staff was friendly and helpful and the suite was large.
The towels were frayed and the chairs for the dining area were dirty.
Excellent service, time share type suite. We only stayed 1 night on business trip.
- I liked the suite size (2 bedrooms and aliving room); I also liked the mountain view from the master room.
Little improvement is needed for the breakfast, and to should be extended tp 10 am rather than 9.
