    We stayed there in first 2 days of our USA trip. Decent rooms, lots of parking space, breakfast was much better than other Hotels we stayed in our trip. Wi-fi was OK. There is a Mexican restaurant in front of the Hotel you can try.

    I liked that this hotel is very close to SDSU, but don't come here for the free breakfast. The breakfast area is where you check in and has two tables or so. A very big disappointment. I skipped it all together.More
