Reviewed 7 June 2016

Always perfect! But I noticed this trip as we watched late night TV the hotel has cut out most of the good channels! Hope this gets fixed! As usual the breakfast is awesome! Great coffee! Front desk is always pleasant! Been coming here for a few years and they never fail us! Thanks again!

This place is very well maintained and very clean. It is in a beautiful location. I love staying here whenever in San Diego area. Pretty quiet. Rooms in back overlook nice little area for picnic or barbeque. Nice pool area. Alpine is a very nice little town very close to many good hiking locations and Lake Cuyamaca.

Upon arrival there was a dirty shower & not enough soap to wash hands and have in shower. The free breakfast was minimal. Worst of all was the incompetent Assistant General Manager Anthony Perkins. We paid extra $30 for a late check out (months in advance) so we could sleep when we got back from an all night event we...

This was the perfect place for me and my boys to stay for a quick weekend trip to San Diego...it was very affordable, but it was also clean and comfortable. They offered not only a continental breakfast, but also a "cookie reception" in the evening! The pool was not very large, but it was heated when we went (mid-May). The...

Nice location off of the interstate. Quiet and clean with free breakfast. Evening hot chocolate chip cookies was a great surprise for the weary family on the road. The hotel is within a minute walk to several restaurants and shops. The room was nicely appointed and clean.
