Unfortunately, I believe I contracted food poisoning from the breakfast food. I became very ill the last night of my stay.
The location was excellent and very comfortable.
Large, poorly repaired drywall patch on ceiling, bathroom fixtures in desperate need of remodeling. Not really a 3 star hotel. Could not get wifi to work.
Nice place, clean , friendly staff, nice amenities, great breakfast.
I've been to this property once before, when I made the same mistake in thinking I was booking at the Solana Beach location. My room didn't seem like it was clean, and sure didn't smell clean. Kinda gross to smell the previous guest's cologne.
fantastic breakfast......little to no noise heard
Clean and spacious room. Staff very helpful.
Staff were absolutely superb. Room was clean. Just what I needed when I had a cold to finish off a long holiday in CA.
They cheapened up the breakfast since the last time I was here. I stayed three days, and the coffee service was never replenished. No cups or coffee on the last two days.
Friendly staff Great location Great value
Nice bed and location
Location, staff & breakfast
I would have liked a larger potty area for the dogs outside, i.e.: larger grassy area equipped with baggies and disposal cans.
I was amazed at the high quality furnishings, cleanliness, décor, breakfast buffet, friendliness of staff and easy access/location and overall experience.
Rooms air conditioning was not working. Room clean except curtains.
All staff very friendly & helpful. Great continental breakfast. Close to freeway & race track! Loved having small refigerator and morning paper delivered to room.
1. the fan in the bathroom didn't work so the mustiness/humidity was terrible. 2. carpet was stained 3. closet doors were hard to open. 4. no microwave I just felt that I paid $200/night for the location. This is an older hotel and the room itself was not the quality you should get for $200/night.
1. staff was super friendly and helpful. 2. location to the beach. (although not walking distance) 3. food was fresh for a continental buffet. 4. large refrigerator in room
Very friendly & helpful staff!! And very nice to our dog,too!!!
Very clean, great room with nice, quiet comfort controls. B'fast was excellent and the Noon checkout was appreciated. Great value! I will be back in a couple of weeks!
The room had a slightly musty odor which I believe was from the carpet. The carpets just need to be replaced.
The staff was fantastic. Everyone was so friendly and helpful!
No microwave in room 232
Noise, smelly , a bit dated , the pool was a joke .
The size of the bed
The bedding being fresh without the old style spreads
I was expecting more from the breakfast but it wasnt that great to me. There were stains in the couches we had in the room. Don't expect greatness. The pictures posted are accurate IN SOME WAYS.
great location! close to downtown and about a mile from the beach. Staff was very accomodating. The room itself was pretty good for the price.
Front desk person not friendly. Terrible parking. I had to ask how to get to my room. Lots of kids.
The bed was excellent
