    Very good

    Hotel staff were lovely and helpful. Free parking, but note the spots are very small even for a small car. Free wifi, worked perfectly no problems. Easy access to freeway 8 which takes you to the 5 - easy run south to town, north to la jolla, easy north to sea world or mission/pacific beaches. Close to supermarkets and shops. Easy walk to sports arena (watched so you think you can dance!). We added an extra night to our stay as we needed more time and it was very simple.

    Breakfast had limited healthy options but the pancakes were delicious! Coffee was terrible. Parking spaces were small (but free!). Slowest elevator I've ever been in! Overall great highly recommend especially for price!

    Fabulous

    Very big room (2 double beds plus sofa and nice bathroom), very good location close to Paradise Point and Seaworld, free internet, free breakfast, free parking

    Breakfast is rather basic for Europeans (no cheese, no salad) still probably good enough, parking is packed and no wide spaces, pool is not inspiring near the garage, and still quite expensive (12,5 tax not included). Car is certainly advisable for the region.

    Loved the breakfast and little pool. Location was great! Free covered parking greet also

    Superb

    I have never seen a staff more friendly or helpful! Parking was a bit of an issue, but they were eager to help make space for us. Even offered us bottled water for our trip home. Absolutely great service. Very clean, great breakfast.

    Location was not the best, but it was close to Sea World and that was the purpose of our visit anyway.

    Superb

    Staff was very welcoming, and accommodating when we asked to move our room.. room was tidy, surprised at all the offerings they had for breakfast, and we got a great price for the weekend...Easy to get to, although some reviews say it's a weird location, I could see why they would say that with it being located on a side street residential area. Had no issues though with location , and multiple places will deliver food to your door so you don't have to go out after a long day ..

    We were on the second floor, unfortunately the guests above us on the third had no courtesy, and very rowdy children they let run around like it was playtime (late at night). We called the front desk to see if they could ask the guests above us to please keep it down since it was keeping all of us up, seemed like that made it worse.... Other then that, no issues.

    Bed is comfortable. Easy to walk to the shopping plaza.

    Egg is not the real egg. It made out of cheese!

    The room was as nice as the photos from the site. The breakfast not only had multiple choices and varieties but was also delicious Even my two teenage girls thought it was great.

    * Breakfast is good. * Staff is helpful and friendly. * Free parking and wifi.

    * The hotel pictures online were deceiving. * Holes (almost tattered looking) in the room darkening drape. * Bathroom door and door handles where worn out. Toilet bowl was crooked (lopsided). * Can hear noises in the hallway and adjacent rooms, also truck traffic noise in the early morning - earplugs are required for sleeping. * The room had a musty smell. * The parking spaces were too tight. * the overall room condition needs a manager's attention.

    very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful

    the location, while convenient, was a little rough. I didn't feel like I could go for a walk in the evening Also wish the t.v. had public television station

    The hotel was clean & well put together.

    I disliked the area, there were no good views when looking out the window. Other then that the hotel was good.

    The location to our needs was great but hard to get to. But it was worth the bit of hassle.

    We got into town early and were able to get an early check-in. The staff was so nice since we just missed breakfast and they let out kids grab some muffins and pancakes. They were VERY friendly. Perfect for a Sea World trip. The area is a little sketchy as others have mentioned but we felt very safe and would stay again.
