The value was great! I asked if I could come in a little early and was accommodated. Location was centralized; easy off, easy on to freeways. This was a super place to stay at........

Hotel staff was excellent with great advice on the area. The shuttle service is outstanding, particularly for going to MCRD for Family Day and Graduation. The woman taking care of the breakfast was so friendly and attentive to any needed items.

This is an older hotel; however, the rooms were spotless and nice. I would not hesitate to recommend this very reasonably priced hotel!

The best part, it was convenient to everything.
The okay part, staff was super friendly. The worst part, the staff was pretty short.

Breakfast was great! We were heading to sea world and literally was less than a 30 minute walk! Good places to see near the area and convenient to a lot of department stores.

Staff was great just short. Waited 10 minutes to get help.

Pros: affordable and convenient!
Cons: service

Stayed: February 2017, travelled with friends

Every Front desk employees helped us with EVERYTHING! (We were needy) They made sure we had all of the information to go from point A to point B. The staff was so friendly, caring and professional. The rooms were clean and the location was why we picked this hotel. We are glad we did!
