SO ENJOYABLE!

My stay was AMAZING! The bed was so comfortable. My buddy who just graduated from MCRD was in heaven the minute he hit that bed! Really enjoyed the motel style stay. Being from Chicago when i left on Feb 26, 2014 it was 4 degrees outside. So being able to sit outside and joke with the buddies i haven't seen in months and not freeze to death was amazing! Breakfast was also very very good!

Convenient location

Was in Santee for a softball tournament, but wanted to be close to the zoo and Sea World. This was only 12 minutes from the fields in a great area with lots of shopping/restuarants and close to the heart of San Diego. Pool area could have been nicer. The spa water looked green and the pool water was cloudy. Rooms were quiet.

convenient location

We had a nice weekend at this hotel. It was a convenient location, extremely friendly staff, clean, comfy beds, good breakfast and in-room amenities. Only complaint was needed a blanket since no real comforter but great bed and pillows Seemed like higher than two stars!

Rude staff

They made us fix a broken sink ourselves. The TV, fridge and microwave stopped working. It took them over 24 hours to fix the problems. Whenever we needed something the staff was rude and made sarcastic jokes about us TO OUR FACES!!! Horrible hotel!

family visit

We needed a change of sheets the first night because they were dirty! There was some sort of gross stain on the ceiling! I was told when I checked in that they were pretty full and made me feel like they gave us a room that wasn't the greatest. The staff were slow to respond to the request of new sheets, I had to call two times. The breakfast was decent. There is really no privacy for the pool area, people worked in the area right behind it. No security, we had a random dude knock at our door at 4 am and scared us. Overall, I would not recommend this to anyone, the commercials do not represent this hotel.

Perfect location

Close to our son's apartment, beaches, Sea World, Olde Town and shopping. The hot tub and pool were great and the breakfast was average, they did run out of things by our third day. Rooms were very comfortable, could use more blankets on the beds.

Very accommodating

Not long after we arrived in our room the front desk called asking us if we needed anything...we asked for more towels and soap and they brought it to us very promptly. The beds are extremely comfortable....quite a change from most hotels. It's located in a good area to get access to places all over town. The continental breakfast was more then generous, including waffles and also eggs? would stay here again and recommend it to anyone.
