    The hotel was excellent. The only comment I have is that the starbucks inside was not the best. Service was quick and friendly but the drinks tasted awful. Got them to go and didn't taste untill after we left for the day. Other than that, everything was perfect. I would definitely stay again.

    We stayed from August 23 to September 1, 2019 in one of the 2 Queen / Sofa Bed Studios. The room was perfect for our family of 5. We were very comfortable in the space and the so glad there was a microwave and mini fridge in the room as our toddler still needs bottles and we were able to store the milk and heat it up with ease. The hotel looks new and modern. The pool was a great place to relax and the enclosed "lawn" area beside the pool was a great place to let our toddler run around and get some energy out. The hotel is conveniently close to the highways. It was about 20 to 30 minutes drive to all the downtown/beach attractions. We were in this location due to the proximity to family who live in La Mesa but I would still recommend it as a great place to stay if you were looking to sight see around San Diego. There are lots of restaurants and shops close by as well. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. The bistro restaurant was fantastic for breakfast and our server, Windi , was always so cheerful and helpful. She gave us some great tips for the San Diego Zoo too! The only suggestion I would make is that it would be nice to have more than 1 hook in the bathroom to hang towels. With 5 of us using the shower/tub, we had nowhere to hang towels for re-use during the day. We also probably wouldn't have needed new towels everyday if we could have hung them all up.

    Stayed 6 nights in Aug 2019
