Good one

Hotel is older style but redone nicely. Rooms are small but not tiny. Air conditioner is new style which doesn't make to much noise. The beds are comfy. There are plugs and usb ports next to beds for computer charging needs. Internet access worked fine. Nice pool and hot tub. Good restaurant for breakfast and dinner with a bar. There were a lot of guests from out of country and out of state. Only thing I could suggest to them is to have complimentary computer and printer to print boarding pass. They have a station for this but charge you for time to use it.

Room was clean, Air conditioner worked well. Shower made loud vibration noise. Breakfast restaurant was good but busy. Nice pool. Good location. Pretty quite even though rooms open to parking lot. Parking close to room was not possible for us at night.

Friendly Staff

The staff obviously enjoys working here. They were very helpful and went above and beyond. Rooms are dated, but kind of retro. Parking was a little tough. Very convenient to the San Diego airport.

Hotel was a great price.. The staff was friendly and hospitable. Swimming pool area was nice. The Waffle Spot has delicious breakfast. The only downside was the carpet and the smell that came from it. Carpets need to be replaced.

Just "okay"

Got a really good first impression when we checked in because the man at the hotel desk was SUPER friendly and helpful. I think he was the friendliest hotel desk clerk I've ever encountered! But when we got to our room, I was very disappointed. The room smelled awful! It smelled humid, musty and mildewy. Think of how a wet towel starts to smell when it doesn't dry out, that's how our room smelled. We even tried opening the window and it helped a little, but it didn't get rid of the smell completely. I could have gone to the front desk to complain and ask for another room, but it was really late and I didn't want to go back down. And after that we had already unpacked some so I didn't want to have to pack everything up again to change our room. Plus, we were not in the room most of the time, just there to sleep. As for sleep, the beds were rock hard! Very uncomfortable. Most of the time when you sit on a mattress it gives a little, but not these beds. My husband can sleep anywhere and on anything and even he woke up with back aches. We went to the Waffle Spot twice. Decent food and decent prices, though I was disappointed they did not have turkey sausage for people who do not eat pork. You could sub for a cup of fruit for an extra 50 cents, which I did once but the fruit was not good. Our first waitress was really nice, the second one was not. She didn't bring us water, we had to ask for it. When she brought my husband his coffee, she didn't even bring creamer, he had to ask for it. I had asked for sugar free syrup and she never brought it, I had to ask another waitress to get it for me. So it was a 50/50 experience for us at the Waffle Spot. We went in the pool once and it was nice, no complaints. Overall though, it was just an "okay" hotel and if/when I go back to San Diego I'll most likely look for a different hotel and pay a little more in hopes of getting one with more comfortable beds.

Nice hotel, great location

There is a fridge in the room but if you need a microwave, you would need to to rent it for $10/night.
