The staff was very friendly.
I didn't care for being told that there was a parking surcharge that was hidden in the fine print. All charges should up front on the first web page of the site.
Convenient Shuttle Service
The staff was friendly & helpful. The room was clean & comfortable. There was a fair amount of variety to the complimentary breakfast. Great local shuttle service, including to the Marine Corp graduation services. Would recommend.
The down side to this hotel is the location. The hotel is sandwiched between I-5 and a very busy street. The noise level could be intolerable to some.
Some likes and suggestions
I liked the breakfast, coffee bar, location to downtown, Old Town, and Little Italy as well as the wedding venue we attended. Everyone was friendly and smiled. Security parking was a great plus as we had a new car and feared there would be issues.
Some things to consider changing include attention to details. 1. Be sure to leave an extra roll of toilet paper in the room at all times 2. Put screens on the windows facing the freeway as the room was extremely humid 3. Towels should not have holes in them even if they are smaller than a dime 4. Overall ventilation in the room was challenging between the humidity created by the shower and lack of ventilation in the bathroom to the swamp cooler in the room that just created more humidity. 5. Need more full sized parking spaces and more if possible. 6. Have rooms that are joined and allow for families to stay in a junior suite; requires less parking.
Mediocre experience at a reasonable price
Close to tourist attractions (Old Town).
Horrible parking situation. Tiny rooms that are poorly decorated. Tiny bathroom and shower.
Nice staff very helpful
They have shuttle service. Very convenient when exploring sd.
Free Breakfast and wifi
Staff wasn't very friendly, welcoming helpful upon arrival
Free shuttle service just about everywhere...train station, airport, and cruise terminal, plus the local sites!!
The neon light outside our window was a bit annoying, and the tap was pretty hard for my arthritic hand...otherwise it was great.
How close it was to the airport and a gas station to fill up the rental car.
Our room was on the interstate side and obviously there was traffic noise when we were trying to get to sleep. But we were so tired by the time we got to the hotel, I don't think it affected how we slept.
clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was excelllent and close to all the ameneties that we needed.
the place is quietly, fridge and microwave in the room, near old town, free internet in the loby.....
The shuttle servicePlease write at least 15 words
The available food service. I was literally shaken down by the middle eastern pizza guy!
Very friendly and willing staff and really excellent (free) shuttle facilities between airport, cruise terminal, Amtrak station.Free continental breakfast makes it excellent value for money , especially for families on modest budget.
the flat screen tv's were nice and the 24 hour store in the lobby was very convienant
i did not like the hotel location, it was right along the freeway also the room had a chemical cleaning odor like lysol and the hotel was not in the safest area it seemed.
Very attentive reception staff. Avalilabilty of pc's. Traffic noise was no problem at all (in contrast to other reviews, and we stayed at the I5-side). Old town nearby. Pubic transport nearby. Free transfer to airport and car rental downtown
Noisy guests in next room till 4AM. Thin walls dit not help.
The staff was very helpful in many ways. I did not rent a car, but the shuttle service to and from the airport, MCRD, and to Old Town was excellent. The fact that they provided this shuttle service, is the reason I chose this hotel. The room was clean, I came back after a long day with freshly made bed, new towels, and even more shampoo!
There was a few issues at first with the staff and some confusion regarding my method of payment. All was resolved, but it was upsetting since it was late when I checked in, and I just wanted to rest. Everything was resolved my morning, however, no one apologized for their error.
Good rate for room/breakfast/parking.
Very noisy hotel, situated just a few meters away of a fast entry to San Diego. Traffic at any time. Avoid absolutely even rooms.
