Dear Guest, Our general manager sent replied back to you on January 5th on a previous similar review of yours. The only reason you were unable to book with us directly is if we did not have the room type availability, or were sold out on the nights you were requesting to stay. We are a very busy property and...

The hotel was easy to get to with a lot of available parking. However, you had to pay to park. It was not part of the room fee. Three of us stayed in a family suite, and I notified them on the reservation that there were three of us. We were only given one blanket, and when I asked for...

Stayed here with the family on a spring break trip to see the zoo and beaches. They have bunkbed suites which are great for families. There is a door between the bunk room and the bedroom that can be closed. The place is clean and in good repair compared to many other hotels in the Hotel Circle area. Breakfast was...

Love that the "pet friendly" rooms have hard flooring. and that pet owners are put on the first floor. They even have a very small pet relief area. Great location. A bit noisy in the corridors and the room above.

We come here often. It is clean and reliable. Breakfast continues to improve. Staff just gets friendlier. We travel with our well behaved dogs and the hotel welcomes them with open arms. It is great to know the "whole family" is welcome. Pet rooms have vinyl floors, so one less worry to a pet mom.

Great location. Central to all of San Diego, especially since it right by the 8 freeway so everything is just a quick hop skip and a jump away, including Downtown SD and PB(Pacific Beach). Not the fanciest of hotels, but they did offer a great rate and they served breakfast every morning. They did have a pool and jacuzzi as...
