Hotel with Great Location But A Bit Pricey For Its Amenities

Location is great, very close to everything (downtown, beaches, museums, etc.). The amenities need some improvement. The shower head at my room was not working properly and water was dripping down to the tub. It is a bit pricey for the overall quality.

A great value!

This hotel is a go to when I have to spend the night in San Diego due to late night work requirements. The rooms are nice and don't feel like a "budget" hotel. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are clean and well kept and above all I am able to always get a good night's sleep. The beds are very comfortable.

Just what we needed

Absolutely great value for the money. We stayed in May of 2014. This is not a fancy hotel by any means but it is everything we needed - clean, comfortable, friendly staff, free wi-fi, free parking. Would definitely stay here again.

The Best Value in San Diego

This is not the best hotel in San Diego, but it may well be the very best value. The price was about 30% lower than anything comparable and it was just fine as a place to end up at the end of the day. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom clean and it had a fridge. The basics were all good. The motel's restaurant was perfectly adequate and not too expensive. It's not a place where you'd hang out--it's on hotel circle, so nothing much to do there--but it's a decent place to sleep and wake up in the morning. And you really do feel like you got value for money, especially if you look around at other prices. Also, although it didn't apply to us, small kids would enjoy the pool, which is also just a small hotel pool though it looked well-maintained. One note to management: You're doing a great job on staff. They were wonderful. But you could improve the free coffee situation. Stryrofoam cups are pretty much lethal to drink out of (it's cheap plastic that leaks), so insulated paper cups would have been much nicer. I had to buy my own.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Bachman Road goes straight up from Hotel Circle to Hillcrest, where there are tons of restaurants. For some reason people always forget it because it's a bit of a backroad. A person in good shape who wants the exercise--It's uphill--can alway walk it and it's not unpleasant to do so.

Needed a one night inexpensive hotel...this fit the bill!

I took my grandsons to San Diego to visit the Safari Animal Park and Sea World and needed a convenient, inexpensive hotel to spend the night. This place fit that bill. Conveniently located on hotel circle, it was easy to reach and close to freeways and cost less than a tank of gas! Not fancy, but good value.
