Good value and convenient to I-805 with easy access to downtown attractions. The breakfast buffet offered some different options each day. The staff was very friendly and helpful regarding travel times in the busy San Diego traffic.

I have Platinum Elite status with Holiday inn so I usually will stay with them first. This place is right down the street from my family I was visiting and from the outside this place looks great!

This motel is very quiet and near many shops and restaurants. The pool and spa area is small but very clean and well maintained. Breakfast was good and well stocked. Free parking and friendly staff. Will stay again at this motel.

We were allowed to check on early. Room very clean. We were on top floor and very quiet. Swimming pool heated and refreshing. Enjoyed hot breakfast. We would return again when we visit National City. Staff greeted us with smile and helpful attitude.

We lived in the area years ago, and I'd heard things had changed. We had a lovely stay at this hotel. As close to the freeway as it is, you might expect outside noise. But we had restful nights the weekend we were there. Parking looked like it could be hard to find- we were able to get a spot...

We went here for a family trip to SeaWorld & the Zoo. It was an easy drive to and from each place. The hotel is about a half mile (if that) away from I-5 and easy access to stores nearby. It wasn't noisy, which is surprising for being on a main road. The check-in with (Sara) and check-out was done...
