We recently stayed here for our son's graduation from MCRD. The hotel is a little older, however the rooms were clean. Every employee we encountered was overly friendly and accommodating. The shuttle service to/from the base both days was very well organized and timely. The shuttle to/from the airport and Old Town just as easy, and was at your service... More

Everything was great, from the warm reception, the comfortable room, the secure underground parking and the shuttle to the cruise terminal and pick-up at the airport. Special mention of Fernando, the shuttle driver for his courteous service. The included breakfast is very good. Second time we have stayed here and will definitely stay again when next in S.D.

The front desk staff were wonderful and welcoming. The parking is gated. The rooms are older but clean. Price is reasonable and we stayed here for free shuttle service. And, everything was great. However - after checkout, we encountered a security guard who could not speak English and later learned this hotel has security because they have recently had several... More

We have stayed here at least 10 times and it has been excellent every time. They offer a free shuttle to pick us up from the airport. Fernando is the best shuttle driver!

Stayed here with our daughter's softball team. Entire place was clean, the breakfast provided by the hotel gave us one less thing to worry about in the mornings before heading out, the pool was perfect for the girls to relax in afterwards, We sleep rather deeply so we didn't notice the freeway noise, and we were on the freeway side...
