Good location, good breakfast

Overall average experience; breakfast was good, location good, room was ok, nothing special but expensive for what you get (welcome to San Diego at peak season). I thought I had read that parking was free, but they charged us $8/night. Friends stayed elsewhere and for ~$20/night more you can significantly upgrade.

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!
