This hotel has a driver who will pick you up and drop you at both places. He even drove me to the Supermarket so I could get food for son, who...

I never write reviews but I spent the weekend at this hotel and was very skeptical but ended up really enjoying myself :) It was a great middle location for me as I wanted to go apartment hunting in San Diego. It's right off the highway, there's a few malls nearby, it's about 15 minutes downtown. Bradley at the front...

This hotel is convenient to many of the attractions in San Diego. It is clean and the employees are very nice. It has nice amenities. The rooms are a bit dated, especially the bathrooms. The breakfast was very good.

I arrived at this hotel on Febuaray 18,2017 for an early check-in. The guy at the front desk was nice and quick at the entire process. Their is a deposit at this hotel of either $50 on a credit card or $100 cash. Dogs are also welcome as long as it's under 40 pounds. Which I thought was really cool....
