I took my family to San Diego for a vacation and we ended up at this hotel after doing considerable research online. The price was excellent and the reviews generally good. I was not disappointed. We have 2 adults and 2 kids, aged 5 and 8. I searched/shopped for a hotel online and then called the hotel directly because the...

California Suites Hotel offers clean, no-frills lodging and friendly service. The complementary continental breakfast is more than enough to get you off to a good start, the grounds are beautifully maintained with a tropical feeling and the prices are unbeatable by San Diego standards. Located in the Clairemont area, it's approximately a 10-minute drive to Balboa Park and less than...

Excellent Hotel! From the outside it doesnt look like much, but once you get inside the hotel gates, it's really pretty! Fountain, Pool, Hot Tub, nice greenery. Came to San Diego to visit family in Clariemont, and this hotel was in a convenient location and for a great price. Pros: 1.) Great Continental Breakfast (bagels, cereal, toast, bananas, oranges, french...

Ok, where can you spend 100 bucks a night and get a clean room with crankin AC, cable and a kitchenette, with a fridge, microwave, and two burners if you want to cook a little something. They have a pool and hot tub. The breakfast is pretty standard continental. They do have one of those automatic Latte machines so you...

If you navigate the California Suites website, you conjure up a view of the lushly landscaped grounds, full of tropical flora, a sunny Mediterranean outdoor decor, a sparkling swimming pool, and clean, immaculate accomodations. Lounging in the pool doing an elementary backstroke, you'd get the same viewpoint . Notice I've mentioned "basic accomodations". Indeed the website and your pool view...

I was traveling on a budget and I had a good deal for a two–day stay. The front desk was unhelpful and definitely not friendly at all. I asked for directions and for some restaurant suggestions, and the answers were "sorry, I don't have dinner out very often, so I can't recommend any restaurant in the area ". I asked...

This hotel looks very plain on the outside, (facing the boulevard) but once inside you are greeted by winding paths through well planted gardens with palm trees, flowers, a fountain and bougainvillea winding over the arches. There are benches here and there where you can enjoy the pretty setting. Every member of the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms...

We had to stay in San Diego, in the Clairemont area for a funeral, unfortunately last week. We booked this hotel because it was the lowest price and was close. I was worried that it would be loud, or unsafe (we have two boys) or dirty. I was VERY pleasantly surprised, however! It was very clean, nice and neat, and...

Rooms are plain but clean and a faily good value for the money, But the customer service at the check in counter was a little strange.
