Mostly everything was ok. The outlets didn't fit right when trying to plug in too loose.
Dirtiest room I've ever stayed in. Not worth it for the price
The staff was excellent. Very friendly and helpfull. We had drinks in the bar after we arrivedwhich was right on site. The appetizers were an excellent value and we made dinner out of it. The place is really very dated. The biggest issue we had was that the room was very dirty. Hair all over the vanity top and dirt on the other table tops. It was really gross and becuase of, and only because of, thta my wife says she will not come back. It's to nad because all of the other aspect of this location make it a real bargin.
The room is big and has a lot of space Is too noisy people smoke just outside the room and loves to talk a lot during night time but we get what we pay for
Friendly staff and ease of location to interstates and Old Town. It was old, not updated in last 15 years. Still had a tube TV. Door opened to parking lot. Daylight coming in under the door. Table in room was all scratched. Did not feel safe. The tub was in very rough shape. Yuck!!! Don't stay here. Needs to be updated!!!!
It was right off the highway & looked like a good stopping place foe my cross-country move. There was black mold growing along the walls, white stains in the carpet, and a soiled chair. The tubs drain was clogged as well, filling up the tub with blueish water during a shower. I was by no means expecting luxury, but the condition of this room was appalling. Staff didn't seem the least bit concerned, and management has not responded to my concerns. The state health department should shut this place down.
The word resort has nothing to do with this Hotel ! Dirty rooms, Toilet NOT working, Customer service Worst ever ! I will never book with "Hotel" or You guys kayak first and Last ! Thanks BUT NO thanks
Great location, just a few minutes from most tourist locations. Nice cozy restaurant and pool. Great beer and happy hours with pool When we got there, they gave us a room that smelled like wet dog, probably cause they saw my as a young college kid and thought i wouldnt care; i asked for a room change and they switched us to a way better and cleaner room. The toiler pump was broken though, so we had to call for a plumber at midnight. Next day, the we came back from Seaworld and the maids didnt even clean the room, they left us a couple of dry towels hanging on a chair while leaving the wet/dirty towels on the ground and the bed unmade. I called front desk the complain and they said "i apologize, i dont know whats going on today" so they just sent more dry towels, the bed was left unmade.
Laundry and pool area. Very clean! Thank you.
It was clean and cheaper, but that was all I can say. Thin windows next to the freeway. It was really loud. Bed was ok, no hot water. The electrical outlets were old and my charger fell out of the socket so I couldn't charge or use anything. Internet didn't work.
The rooms were dirty. Showers and toilet looked unclean. Carpet was sticky. Only stay here if you really cant afford anything better. Dog poop all over the grounds/grass, wasnt picked up. Was not a "RESORT" as titled.
Dirty bathroom...T.v. cable wasn't working...Wi-Fi poor connection
Wasnt able to check in until after 5:00 PM. That, to me was unreasonable. Something to do with short staffed in the houysekeeping dept. I flew in from HNL via Seattle so was shelled and didnt appreciate waithing so long to get my room.
The Staff is wonderful. The hotel is one of the cleanest I have ever stayed. Food was good and the Bartender fantastic. I highly recommend this hotel.
Nice older hotel, great value Was a bit noisy near the pool
Rooms were standard, clean enough, beds comfortable enough, etc. BUT the waffle spot, now there's where this place stands out. Imagine the best waffles of your life, just a 2 minute walk from your room! Definitely the best part of the stay. Would highly recommend the blueberry waffles.
Very cute little place. Perfect location -- close to airport, easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. Incredible value for those traveling on a budget. Very nice staff. Great little breakfast cafe. Beautiful pool and outdoor patio facilities. The room is nothing fancy, but very clean and comfortable. The last night, our upstairs neighbors were VERY heavy-footed. That 's the only time we've ever had a problem with noise; have stayed here several times over the past three years.
Rooms were super clean and updated. Good channel selection on tv. Staff was super friendly and accommodating, even let us move rooms to avoid office construction noise.
Rooms were clean and equipped with a/c. They also have a pool and provide coupons for Waffle Spot. Booked a king bed room and we were given two queens but room was really nice and clean so it wasn't a huge issue.
well maintained, even if dated noisy guests
Close to old town and mission bay Free parking Pool is heated A little outdated Nice from freeway if your your faces freeway
The staff, from the manager to the cleaning staff exceeded great. They were all so helpful, patient and went above and beyond helping us with ANY inquiries. The restaurant (mexican) and the Waffle Spot were both FABULOUS! I can't applaud the staff enough! The day we arrived San Diego was having the WORST rain storms in over five years! We requested an upstairs room due to the flooding. But the staff went above and beyond in getting us settled, provided extra requests from us with NO HESITATION! I would recommend the KINGS INN if you want open hospitality and NICE PEOPLE!
Cute hotel. Nice pool/lounge area. Rooms were clean and comfortable although it did take quite a while for the A/C to cool down the room. Staff was friendly and helpful. Check in isn't until 4pm...that seems VERY late to me. I have never encountered a check in that late before. I understand that rooms need to be cleaned but if check out is 11....maybe that's just me. Luckily they were able to accommodate our early check in the weekend we visited. No continental breakfast that I saw, which was listed as an amenity.
We liked the fast and easy of the reservation online, location of the hotel, the staff that were working at the resection, the confort of the beds and the cleanliness of the room, the free parking and the price for all this.
The thing I liked best about the Best Western Seven Seas was the front desk people. They were nice, but when I asked for a room a little closer up (safer with 3 kids alone), she just said, "We have security." But I don't think I saw security around. I was kind of scared and even my daughters felt insecure too. The area is shady. Honestly, this hotel looks equal to all the other lowest-end hotels on hotel circle drive. They are all pretty shotty looking, and the Best Western just has prettier pictures, but don't let it fool you. Save money and go to a different hotel on the street, only if you don't mind a CHEAP hotel and a shady area throughout. Also, we saw 3 ants crawling on us while there for a night and the rooms are extremely SMALL, like the smallest standard room I think I have ever stayed in. It wasn't clean or nice at all and I kept my flip flops on while walking on the gooey-feeling carpet. Go a few miles up north and pick a little better area if you want nice because you won't get a nice hotel on Hotel Circle Drive (I looked around after checking out one day early).
It was quiet Felt a little low-end. Ac units were leaking water onto the sidewalk. The parking lot had very tight parking lanes.
I liked the two ladies from the front desk!! That I stayed only for one night..
Cheap and clean room I could hear every word, sneeze, cough, and tv show of the rooms next to me. Extremely annoying and did not let me sleep.
Costumer service was amazing, yet every 3 hours we had the fire alarm go off on us! Not too relaxing
It was a very nice hotel clean, comfortable, and easily assessable. I didn't like the fact that people were smoking weed inside and outside there rooms.
The room was outdated but clean. Staff was nice and housekeepers did a good job cleaning. Leave them a tip, they work hard.
Great stay and wonderful staff. Thank you all.
Hotel was just fine for what we needed, a place to crash after our flight.
The towels in our room had lipstick stains. Makes you wonder what else was not cleaned..
I liked the mini restaurant, and the mirror in the bedroom I didn't like how small the tub was, or how pricey the meal was for breakfast
The decor was nice & the staff were friendly. Crust Kitchen, the restaurant, was also very good. The bathroom was not very nice - it was very dingy & did not look like any of the pictures we saw online. Our room could have used new pillows, & in general, new towels were needed too. Two of the outlets in our room didn't work, including one located beside the bed...which was very annoying. Our biggest complaint though, was the noise. There was no sound-proofing in the walls & we could literally hear our neighbours speaking. We stayed for seven nights & many times we were woken up by our neighbours (who changed throughout our stay) & other people arriving back to the hotel late at night.
Clean, efficient check in
Comfortable beds, simple, fast check in and check out
I didn't like how they played the music by the pool all night long. That was super annoying
Muy buena atencion Mala conexión wifi
Not pricey. Well-located. Clean. Comfy beds. On-site convenience store/restaurant. Horrible water pressure in the shower. Poor lighting options.
Helpful staff. Nice pool. Refurbished but not done well. Motel not a hotel.
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Good location for Old Town and in general for sightseeing around San Diego. Felt safe and travel mart and restaurant right in front of hotel.
The restaurant was great. Good food and staff. Fast service The room was dirty, falling apart, noise from the freeway was loud, the room smelled like bad bathroom cleaner, bed was uncomfortable, shower knob wiggled and felt like it was going to come out of the wall, noises from the pipe, bubbling from the ceiling paint in the bathroom, bathroom door looked like it had been forced open at one time, pool smelled bad, hot tub was worse.
Bed was comfortable. Room renovations were nice. Price was good. Parking lot well lit. Old single pane windows hard to open and didn't do well for noise. Right next to the freeway, so a little more insulation would have been good. Refrigerator and AC were noisier than expected. Keycard didn't work. There was no toilet paper in the bathroom. Charged my credit card the next day for use of the in room safe even though I didn't use it. I do not appreciate being nickel and dimed especially, if not informed in advance. They should have just included the cost of the safe in the room price.
When you travel you are specting to get to the hotel and relax to get an early flight. We spend a terrible night at the hotel cause of the storm and couldn't sleep cause of lack of electricity. I invited my daughter that is going thru cancer to enjoy a pleasent night and we stayed up all night to depart and get to the airport cause the electricity never came back. We talked with the manager and he wasn't helpful. We wanted to talk with someone besides him or the owner and he said no. I'm not traying to get an advantage cause of the weather like the manager said I was. Cause of his lack of experience he is not providing the hotel a good review. I don't recommend staying there they will not make you feel at ease or welcome.
The cleanliness of the hotel. Except there was mildew on shower tiles. They charge you an extra $22.54 per pet per night. This is not told to you at all but you sign paperwork stating they are going to charge you when you check in. They don't tell you and you wouldn't know unless you fully read the small print. So get ready to pay extra then what you paid on Kayak. Also get ready for them to watch your every single step when your outside your hotel room. Talk about stalking.
1. Reasonably-priced. 2. There was a long line at the check-in/out counter, but the staff was very accommodating/pleasant, so the long wait was more bearable. 1. We were on the 2nd floor. We could feel the floor vibrating whenever there were people walking along the corridor. 2. The bathroom door is difficult to slide close/open and the lock was not working properly.
it was clean. The front door to our room would not shut all the way looks as though they tried to grind it for settling but still didn't shut stayed for 2 days could hear animals fighting outside and people talking outside the floor was weak in spots and creaked .
The room was clean the shower took way too long to drain out
Great location- close to everything. very nice rooms, nice workers, restaraunts & mini market walking distance, fridge & microwave in room, would definitely stay there again!!
The hidden parking fee charged at end of check out
the cost for the room not clean, bed sheet where low grade, very noisy charge for parking now rude guy at checkin
It was very comfortable & quiet. Great 2-night stay. The room humidity was high and felt musty from the AC or something.
Staff was friendly and the rooms were clean no water in the gym or in the vending machines, no breakfast, not even a place to buy one.
Easy to get to. close to the freeways. Staff was great. Had to pay for parking.
pool, hot tub
Location, friendly/helpful staff
sink is seperate from the toilet and shoer, which was great great location fast check in
Bellman were the best! Helped me with luggage & getting around expansive grounds via electric carts. Very nice gift shop. At times front desk & concierge desk were so overwhelmed/understaffed, it just wasn't worth the wait in line for service. Because of these lines/wait times, some seating is necessary on that side of lobby, or a number system for those who can't stand to wait in line.
Comfortable bed and nostalgic large room. Not well maintained giving the room a grungy feel. Housekeeping staff needs more training. The planned remodel will help this property, but if the staff does not learn how to appreciate and accommodate guests, the change will only be on the surface.
The maids and ground staff were very friendly and accommodating! oVer and hour just to check in .. Rooms are severely outdated .. Parking was $19 a day and there was never any spot available .. People were double parked and I had to circle for almost 45 minutes every night. The wifi never worked and was $15 a day ..
The facilities them selves needs an update. Its like they are stuck in the 1980s. My room was clean but definitley needed an update. And a fridge in the room would have been nice. There wasn't an elevator in the section I stayed in so thankfully I was only on the second floor. A bit difficult to maneuver my suit case, but I managed.
Large facility. BBQ bar had very good BBQ food although a little limited on food choices. Rooms definitely dated. Air conditioning did not work after first day. Bed was on the floor, not on any type of riser. Musty. Limited food choices for such a large place. Staff was very friendly though.
Nothing $19 for parking per day and an extra $15 for resort fee. Ridiculous. The shower/bath tub was clogged when I was using it. The fan raddled like crazy. Furniture very worn out. The entire place seemed run-down. I paid over $200 per, what a rip off for a place like this.
The renovated rooms were somewhat nice. The air conditioner made an awful knocking sound, you could hear EVERY little thing outside, the construction was a huge mess, very cheaply put together. The sheets smelled like mildew. A couple of the white pillow cases had, what appeared to be, blood on them.
Though grounds and buildings and exteriors clearly need refreshening, room in tower interior and bedding was updated and clean, and right next to parking lot a 10 min stroll to convention center. Glad we packed lightly with rolling luggage as self serve. Convention food was bland, worse than summer camp, even banquet food was bland, 8 days with no hot meals for gluten free except for on last couple days bland dishwater-like soup finally labeled gluten-free. Quinoa cold salad was delicious - also only offered one day and leftovers in buffet next day - glad I tried it but overheard others afraid to try as assumed made with unhealthy canned peas and carrots, but was actually cut fresh raw cucumber celery and carrot. Should have offered rate reduction. Survived on the 24 hr carrot and celery sticks and whole fruit as breadless hot dogs and cold tasteless canned tuna did not appeal to me and boiled eggs was onlything i could eat from breakfast buffet of cereals and wheatladen pastries, no hot breakfast offered at all. Hot meals that I could not eat were nothing special either - nothing chef made - just unbag from freezer and dump in buffet warmers - breaded chicken strips, chilimac, penne and sauce, lasagne, alfredo pasta. Escaped to mall - True Food and PJ Changs had gluten free variety of selections but had to pay out of pocket - even onsite restaurant charged extra to substitute as I saw no gluten friendly options labeled.
The rooms were small and had a weird smell. My fiancé and laid down and were disturbed by a big bug running across the bed. We called the front desk and explained what happened and they didn't see to care much. They just gave Us another small stinky room. Also when I asked about the golf course they show on their brochure they told us it's not owed by them so they couldn't get me access...totally misleading pics will no longer stay there it's not worth it.
Clean with good A/C, Good amenities and good marking of room locations for a complex of spread out buildings. Hotel Circle location is confusing anf hard to exit and enter off the 8 freeway. Long lines of traffic to go anywhere, just to get on the freeway.
I liked the room. It was large, comfortable, and clean. The beds were made and towels changed daily. The grounds take a bit of map-reading to figure out, but were clean and picturesque. The location is not the most convenient, but the nearby Trolley stop brought me easily to Old Town. The food was OK, nothing special. The Internet was always available, but was not the quickest. That could be a problem, as it was at the Computer Science Teachers conference I attended!
Great location! Centrally located, easy to access trolley and buses. Helpful and courteous staff. Maintenance issues. Dresser drawers broken, Stairmaster equipment rusted and shuts down in middle of workout. Wifi kept disconnecting. $15 daily extra charge to use fitness center and wifi also was not clearly described by counter staff beforehand.
The room was clean; no complaints about service. Parking is extremely limited at night.
Reasonable price, cheap place to stay in S D. Area around hotel not too bad, seems safe enough. Bathroom was clean and in good shape, bed was clean and comfortable. It was quiet at night. Would stay here again for the price Inside facilities showing it's age. Carpeting, furniture showing wear and tear. Small rooms w too much furniture in them. Driveway entrance, parking lot is a little tight space wise. Don't expect a nice view.
I had to flush the toilet four or five times before it worked properly. I generally like Super 8, and the room looked good, but I can't say I recommend this motel. The Shower water seemed to have only two settings: cold and scalding hot (though after several minutes of tiny, careful turns of the knob, I finally managed to get a decent temperature). The room was clean but for a few small, black spots on wallpaper in the bathroom. The lights mysteriously went out when pushing bed against wall, but returned when I pulled the bed out again. It was somewhat noisy, as such motels tend to be (luckily I had earplugs, so no problem).
the lighting in the bathroom LOL THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE BED BUGS!!!! DONT DO IT!
It was very clean and well decorated; which gave it a modern feel.
Easy access to where we needed to be. Breakfast room extremely crowded. Our room had a distinct order as if something was sprayed in room to mask an unclean room. Air conditioner needed a thorough cleaning.
The price was right Close to a lot of good places No problems finding parking Clean Friendly staff Really good breakfast Small room (not that big of a deal though) Slightly weird smell Bed/pillows weren't that comfortable Remote control didn't work
The room was small but had a mini-refrigerator and a microwave + coffee maker. The location is convenient to all area highways, very easy to get anywhere. The staff is nice and the room service s doing their best considering how badly the rooms need repairs Getting in and out of the property is super-awkward, the driveway is tiny and very easy to miss. The elevator looks like the one in the public parking garage. The rooms are tiny and the walls are paper-thin, you will hear each word your neighbours (or their TV) say. Light switches in the bathroom were half broken and the fan sounded like a jet on takeoff.
It was an adequate place to sleep while exploring SD
The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was a nice way to start the day. Friendly, helpful staff. I always stay at Super 8 - consistent in quality.
We got there, slept, and left. It was really good for sleeping in and leaving from. The TV didn't have an HDMI port so we couldn't Chromecast movie musicals to it. It made me cry almost as hard as the movie musicals would have.
There was cable and it was close to the gas lamp district/convention center Very dirty rooms. Carpet had not been vacuumed. My BF walked around the carpet after a shower and his feet were turning a black color like he had been walking outside. Comforter had stains, white stains (don't even want to know) and weird gray stains. Tub had hair inside and other small debris. The inside of the coffee machine was dirty as well. When I opened the ice bucket, a fly flew out and it bugged us all evening cuz we couldn't catch it. The tv didn't work when we just got in and the guy who fixed it barely said a word to us. After leaving the room for a few hours to get dinner and coming back and deciding it was too dirty to stay in, the people at the front desk said there was nothing they could do about it. No room change or discount/refund (it was over 200$ for a one night stay). will not be staying again
Right of the freeway so it was easy find and close to restaurants.. $20 per night charge for parking, no microwave in room, the room we had was very small and near the stairway so we could hear the foot traffic thought it the night. TV control had a significant lag. One set of elevators was old and dirty.
Too expensive for what was offered Front desk least helpful (I had problem with WiFi and front desk immediately said my device is problematic, without any investigation). WiFi was horrible. I feel the hotel is misleading in that WiFi is not free, as that is horrible. So you have to purchase paid WiFi!!!! Chairs don't go up and down on press of the lever. Hardly any options in the Bistro. No room delivery during the day. Never coming back unless I don't have a choice.
Staff was polite They gave me a room near the elevator on 2nd floor despite my advance request for upper floor. Had a view of a wall & roof! No safety box for my laptop. Pipe noise occasionally. It was priced well but I'd rather pay slightly more for better place next time
I didn't like that I had to pay for parking. I mean I'm spending good money already just by staying there. Why do I also have to pay to park my car in the hotel.
having to pay $20 per night for parking was not a nice surprise at check out
They did NOT have the room available when I arrived for check in. This was an AWFUL experience as I was traveling with children and an elderly person with no bed for them.....
Location was very convenient with easy access to freeways and close to all the sites. The hotel is clean and the staff is very friendly and the beds are comfortable.
When we arrived, they told us our reservation had been cancelled. Neither my wife nor I cancelled the reservation. They were not particularly friendly after informing us of the cancellation, either. Very unsatisfyjng.
It was convenient to use their business center, service was great, staff was friendly, beds were extremely comfortable. Room was clean and had modern decor. Would definitely stay again, although comparing this to other city and beach hotels in this range, pricing for this room should be less, especially if parking is $10/nt.
The toilet doesn't work well, and the bathroom is a bit horrible. My first time to live this kind of hotel, but also would be last time...
Nice facility and it was Clean Entire Building was stuffy. We stayed on presidents weekend( also Valentine's Day) and staffing was not adequate to serve many many guests.
The people were nice, the room was clean. Road Entrance difficult to find because of inadequate signage. Key cards did not all work. View area from lobby by restaurant to pool overlooked messy hoses, weeds & trash. Had long wait for coffee & tea to take to room giving ample time to look at dingy view.
Loved it the hotel was clean the staff was nice the pool was clean an amazing w a fire place outside, the stop is great only 10 mins or less from sea world gaslamp beach coronado . Great experience looks remodeled and in great condition. Cookie was super tasty !
Nice facility, personable and responsive staff, good breakfast options Hard mattress and inconsistent Internet
The patio was great and the beds were comfortable!! Traffic noise, garage parking was a tight fit for bigger cars, and had to pay extra 18$ for parking! Shower curtain keep falling off making a water mess on the floor!!
Great hospitality, everyone was very gracious and attentive. the pool was extremely nice and i loved the workout room. only bad thing is the ice machine turns off after 9 o'clock and me and my guest were told to go to the bar and get our own ice downstairs.
We love the Doubletree and YES because of the cookies! From the start the customer service was excellent. We called for an early check in and was accommodated. The room was 2 queen and a sofa. The room was clean and spacious enough for all 4. The pool and jacuzzi were great. Location was great. We had an event downtown and shopped in Mission Valley.
They don't warn you about the $20 a day parking. The parking structure is terrible and very small.
You can't beat being greeted with a kind smile and a warm cookie. The Double Tree provided what my wife and I were looking for. Our room was clean. We weren't traveling with children; however, our suite's bunk bed and child room would have been perfect. The parking is rather tight, and the elevator was creaky and smelled badly.
Beautiful hotel, accommodating staff and excellent amenities A wedding reception was going on right next to rooms facing the pool . That wouldn't have been a nuscence if the dj wouldn't have had the music blaring late into the night , and having a very young child w/ us in the room, getting to bed was very difficult
Location was great. Love the warm cookies. When I booked on line my room included a balcony. When I arrived my room did not have a balcony and the front desk person could not really explain the reason for the difference I would not stay on the first floor again for it was too noise.. I had room service. The food was not good.Soup too salty and fish not hot and soggy.
This place looks great!!! looks like it was just opened yesterday everything is brand new and looks amazing !! Definitely has the new features of a hotel and great lounging area. Reggio was also great! Key required to get up the elevator
If you rent a car, the location is perfect, giving you easy access to everywhere in the San Diego vicinity. Except at the heaviest traffic times, everything is less than 25 minutes away by car. I can see not having a car being an issue, and I'm not sure how convenient Uber or Lyft is in the city. The hotel was very modern with a large lobby area complete with large tables that have multiple ports for your laptop or tablets. There is a really nice fireplace with 6-7 TVs and multiple seats that are somewhat outdoors and overlooks the pool. They had multiple sports games on at once. The rooms are new, clean, and while they have a basic design, they include a mini-fridge and a microwave, which a lot of "nicer" hotels are lacking. There is also the standard Holiday Inn Express breakfast included, which is nothing special but still a very nice feature. Unless you absolutely need to be in the Gaslamp Quarter or within walking distance of a particular place, I would highly recommend this hotel. I'm sure this is a standard San Diego policy but the hotel charges 18 dollars a day for parking on site. I saw that in the gaslamp quarter these prices were closer to $35 dollars a night. Just keep that in mind if you are on a budget. That being said, our car rental was very reasonable ($110 for a full size car x 4 days) and I still think its worth having your own car as the sights to see in San Diego are very spread apart.
The location it was by everything and they gave us a free shuttle service to SeaWorld and back The fees 250 deposit for pets 25 a day for pet 12 a day for parking if they would let you know up front about the fees instead of after you already booked it .then its to late you have to pay cause the room non refundable.
I liked all the amenities. There was a hair salon, aa bar and other shopping inside the hotel. Bed was really comfortable and it was a beautiful room. The bar closed to early as well as the munchie shop in the main lobby.
Convenient location Rooms are ok but could use an upgrade
Location is close to everything. It's a great middle point for a lot of the downtown, Point Loma, Beach, Zoo, Trendy bars and restaurants. Fridge in the room Was given 2 double beds for a romantic weekend. They didn't have any queens. Bathrooms are tiny and literally have no counter space. Walls are paper thin. I could hear the room next to us at 3am having sex as clear as day. For $150 a night, I don't expect the Taj Mahal, but I expect to have privacy and not hear these things.
It was in San Diego! So tried not to spend too much time inside the room. The bed was reasonably comfortable. The front desk staff were helpful and pleasant. Terrible Internet connection in my room - though wifi was free. Bad location - stranded on the side of a highway, where only food option is the hotel's restaurant, which consistently served the average & overpriced food at room temperature. Restaurant staff was disorganized and not helpful - waited for my check for half an hour every time. Smelled musty/smoky - just older and kind of run down place Poor water pressure in the shower
check-in and check out was smooth and done in quick order. Room was clean and well furnished Pool area, jacuzzi and fitness room clean and good presentation. Best point was there were no "hidden" charge on bill, i.e., safe in room, mini-bar, etc., when checking out nothing
The manager was nice and treated us to breakfast for all our unconvince at the end of our trip Nothing in the room was working... Fridge was hot, toilet sink was clogged, and shower head was broken. The room is wayyyyy smaller than it looks in picture, it was very rowdy in there as there was a motorcycle club there and they were outside by the pool extremely loud and hotel did nothing about it. Would not stay there again.
Beds were comfortable. Air conditioner in each room worked well. Staff were friendly, and was able to check in early. Food was okay. The room smelled of mildew. One banquet the grapes were moldly.
We arrived late at night and left early for a flight. For our purpose it was great.
Well Kept Buildings & Grounds Nice Rooms Excellent room service breakfast delivered right on time (order the night before on doorknob hanger) Could use more shelf space in bathroom for toiletries
There is nothing in particular that be considered as a really positive point for this hotel. The only thing I would go for is that it was clean enough. The stuff were not at all welcoming or friendly. By the time I wanted to check in, I was really surprised! Because of my work, I travel a lot and stayed in so many hotels around the world. This hotel was by far the worst choice of my life. You can find pretty much better hotels nearby with the same quality and price and there is absolutely no point to stay in this hotel. The hotel will charge you extra for the safe box in the room and they do not even inform you of this in advance. So be aware of their trick! I made a complaint after my stay and got part of the money back. Found no soap in the room on my arrival. The highway nearby is quite noisy, poor breakfast beside having no place to eat, you have to take it to your room!
The hotel lolled quaint , reatively clean , rooms looked nice for the price A/c in room did not blow cold air , was not properly maintained a/c unit was on all night & never got room cool. The room was extremely HUMID & very uncomfortable & We were not able to sleep due to the humidity. This hotel deserves 1 star due to poor maintenance
We were made welcome, even offered the manager's parking spot. Good advice on places to eat. Excellent waffles at breakfast. Things got a little crowded in reception at breakfast time.
I'm really the people in the office were amazing and accommodating me because I wasn't able to go up the steps because of the surgery. It's not your old Vagabond Hotel anymore. :-) The updates were really nice In the room. . The shower had hairs in it and there's a big stain on the carpet in the room. Also waking up in the middle of the night to that woman's face is kind of scary. The bed was so hard the pillows. There should be a free breakfast bar in the office area.
Everything was very clean. Past reviews about hookers are not true. I didn't see any. Id stay there again Nothing
Free parking, clean room, good location. The breakfast was limited and you had to take it back to your room to eat.
It was quiet and relaxing NA
It is a nice motel and very clean. The breakfast was nice with good quality food. The clerk on duty was not very friendly at all and was not very helpful. He gave the impression that he was only there to fill in his required time. However, the other clerk was quite helpful.
Great price, good location, check out the hash house go go best food!!! only 4 min away, it's near old town, 5min from sea world real close to everything, Well there are three locations I guess and I ended up at a different one but loved it, I was in the hotel ciricle right off the 8 near the 5. Room had a fridge (worked great) microwave, a little coffee make-neeed more coffee. room clean, water pressure was AWESOME!!! seem recently painted, bed was nice and soft but not to soft. Over all very good. Confusion of where the hotel is that you purchase, not too many parking spaces, and the construction in the back for a new hotel, but it didn't bother me.
Exceeded my expectations for a budget priced accomodation close to a convention and/or conference center no
the waffle breakfast the parking
I really enjoyed my stay. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was a lot of road construction in front of the hotel which made it difficult to get in and out. Parking lot was extremely small and parking was an issue.
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.
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.
Rooms were very large and well equipped. Clean. Creaking noise from upstairs was heard in our room. No king-size beds in any room.
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.
- 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.
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 liked the very large comfortable room, the kitchen and the two TV's. The bathroom was also a very good size.
Excellent service, time share type suite. We only stayed 1 night on business trip.
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.
Bathroom has no door. Poor living condition.
Nice bed. Comfy. Lots of pillows. Location good Bugs in the room. Need to upgrade TV and make it looked nicer clear like Howard Johnson in Pico Rivera CA. Staff need to smile
Great rates but you definitely get what you pay for. Would stay again if I'm on a tight budget. Blankets had what appeared to be cigarette burns.
Nothing but had nowhere else to go Room was dirty had rust on shower rod and toilet paper holder and mold in the bathroom and on the stairs going outHalf of the electrical sockets could not be used, door didn't fit properly. 100 degrees outside and the ice machine was not working. Microwave was plugged into an extension cord.
Location is awesome, 3 miles from beach and sea world! My reserved room wasn't ready at 3:00, when check in is!
I liked the location/ proximity to where we were going. I also appreciated that it had a fridge where we could keep our soda/ waters cold. I didn't like how unkept it looked. Our room had an old leather couch that was all worn out. I would have preferred it to have no couch/ the space empty than to have the old / dirty looking leather couch. I also found it odd that it had an ironing board but no iron, and coffee packets but no coffee pot. Breakfast was very limited.
Very dirty . Pool was not clean, beds were damaged and no clean towels for guests
Nothing Sink was clogged up, no towels, dirty rooms, hair everywhere, room wouldn't lock, celling was falling apart
this place was a disaster from start to finish...do not stay here!! No towels after maid service...TV was Air...no cable as advertised. Microwave broken. Smelled terrible. Worst hotel stay ever! i hated every minute of my time in this hotel. Two days of sin and punishment. Do not think you are saving any money...this place is a joke. Shut it down!!!
Flat screen tv The bed. Needs new mattress
Close to other hotels and restaurants Can't upgrade any reservations made online. The room, with a king bed, was extremely small. I had to ask for towels every day because they didn't leave any. The place, inside and out, looks like it's falling apart. Guests were shady looking. Other amenities were nearby but this place is clearly on the wrong side of the tracks. I wish I would've spent the money to stay at a different hotel.
the location was great the rooms had a very bad smell in them one of the rooms shower did not work very well it was very dirty and the maid would forget to bring any towels daily
