Reviewed yesterday NEW

A clean & great little hotel with some funky class! Loved the colors & location. And the price! Briton at the front desk was very helpful along with the rest of the staff! There was plenty of free parking & the complex was a nice size. Close to Hillcrest Hospital where our friend was staying.

I have stayed many times at this hotel when it was a Vagabond. They have done a complete remodel to a boutique type design and they did a great job. Everything is new. This is my "go to" place to stay whenever I am in SD on business. Definitely the best value in Mission Valley.

great rooms, newly renovated, excellent staff! Everyone was very courteous and helpful. Stayed several days when my escrow for my new house was delayed and it was a great place to stay while I dealt with the frustration of home buying. And they are dog friendly!

It is a very basic place, nice, easy and great location. The pool and hot tub were nice. Our room had a broken holder, but they came within minutes and fixed it. It was clean and people were friendly for sure.
