Room was very nice, place is close to gas station and shops. Rate is very reasonable, but the complimentary breakfast is not great...juice, milk, coffee, bagels, (toaster available), pastries, fruit, cold and instant cereal. Breakfast room is small and noisy. All things considered, I would book another stay.

The front desk guy had a real good sense of humor. The cleaning people were very nice and helpful. Our room was very nice and clean, the beds were comfortable. The town rolls up the sidewalks at an early hour. Being a holiday weekend, Carls Jr. across the street was obviously closed in the evening on Thanksgiving, but for some... More

Hotel service was great, rooms clean and in good upkeep. A little pricey, for $135 a night i would expect at least a microwave and/or a small refrigerator in the room. Appreciate the pet accommodations and the breakfast food provided.

I made the reservation online. It charged me $45 for the pet. When we checked-in pet was already $65. And they charged me for (another) pet fee.So I clarified and pointed out in the bill and asked what "Other Fees". Turns out the bill already had the pet charge. They just want to charge me the pet fee for the... More

Love this place, right off the I-8/Tavern Rd. in Alpine and only a short 30 min drive to San Diego. It's quiet and nicely lanscaped, the rooms are cozy and very comfortable. The only drawback back was no fridge/microwave in my room, but somehow I survived and lived to write this review. What was most impressive to me was the... More

I would stay here again. My original intentions were to stay at the nearest Casino & hotel but I felt the rooms were way overpriced for a mid-wk stay. A staff member referred me to this place n offered shuttle service as well. When I arrived It was reasonable in cost & clean, plus the front desk staff member was... More

Our room here was just fine. We used the pool and spa area. Both could use some cleaning to get the tree droppings out. The breakfast was very sparse with fewer offerings than most chains. Overall a nice place to stay, but not really special.

Air conditioner was very poor and the breakfast was the most mediocre I'd ever seen. Aside from that I did enjoy the free shuttle rides to and from the hotel. The room was clean and everything was in order.
