I had the opportunity to stay at Palomar Inn for about a week. Yes, I could have saved a little by going to another place. But the savings would not replace the service you receive. It is not very often you can have a hotel which actually cares about it guests like they are close friends or even family. From... More

The Palomar Inn is a bit more of what you expect from a roadside hotel. A good friend reccomended the place, and I was not disappointed. The place is quiet although close to I-5. The rooms are clean but worn out, and the staff is very helpful. Although all rooms are worn out they are clean and well lit. My... More

I showed up the first night only to find out they had no single beds left. The front desk was nice enough to give me a family suite for no extra charge. The next day they had some pastries and fresh coffee ready for breakfast. They moved me to a single room that was very clean and peaceful. Basic cable... More

Excellent attention and customer service. It needs a little remodeling and up-dating. The view and the location is excellent. We will go back. We like the big bed. You can have as many coffee refills as you want and we liked that. Maybe some fresh fruit with the cereal they give in the morning would help.

We did not mean to be rude and we did not mislead anyone. We do not want overbooked situation in our hotel and so many times during the conventions in San Diego, we do avoid to take reservations on the phone. That is our business policy to keep our customer service best and not to disappoint anyone due to overbooking.... More
