Score from 331 reviews Good
The staff were awesome! Every one of the staff said, "Good morning" to us. We loved breakfast and the buffet, esp. the scrambled eggs, were awesome!
The halls and rooms felt a little cramped
Breakfast was nice and all the staff there...always willing to help.
I like the clean room fresh linen and the complimentary breakfast was hot and delicious.
Small parking lot
Freeway accessible, granite sink area, large sink area, updated bedding, updated room furnishings, included breakfast.
Smack dab in the middle of an auto mall. Icky neighborhood right behind hotel. I didn't feel safe in the parking lot at night even though it was well lit. The lamp shades need to be replaced. No top screw to hold old shade secure so it wobbled and they generally look really cheap. I would not stay in this location again. Was suppose to be a special time away with my high school grand-daughters and location put a damper on the experience. I felt bad for travelers who came to San Diego for a "real" vacation and were stuck at this hotel. Breakfast should stay open until 10:00 AM for non-business travelers.
Room was very comfortable and clean with excellent amenities. Young lady at reception was very welcoming and helpful. The location is easy to find but set back enough that you don't hear traffic. (I was in a room on the third floor.) Didn't have time to check out the pool or gym.
I was woken at around 8:0 -8:30 by the maids in the hallway shouting at each other what seemed like just socializing as they were attending some rooms. I really needed and intended to sleep late after a long day and evening the day previous day. I didn't have time to complain to the desk but this is really unfair to guests and should be stopped. For this I only rated quality of sleep fair!
online picture misleading, outside noise very loud at night.
How wet and uncomfortable it was ..getting our of the shower and drying off but still felt wet cuz the room was moist.
The hotel was clean and the receptionist was friendly, patient and very helpful. Free breakfast for guests.
Older AC unit in room so didn't blow as strong so room was stuffy and room was very tight for a family of 3. The refrigerator did not get cold. The wifi was extremely slow, so wasn't worth even trying to use.
The location was suited for our needs during our visit to San Diego. Room was quiet and clean. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was good.
The toilet plumbing wasn't working right, even after two visits from the hotel maintenance people. This issue should have been resolved immediately, and with our second request for maintenance, an offer to move rooms should have been made to us.
The complimentary breakfast was delicious.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Always treated kindly at front desk, by cleaning staff and breakfast staff. Enjoyed the daily breakfast. Breakfast is very organized and offers great variety for all types of meal plans and appetites.
The bathrooms were so small. Toilet seat too small and uncomfortable to sit on. Restroom downstairs could have been better stocked, because it was out of toilet paper early in the evening. Pool is too small, but with the ocean nearby it was okay.
Breakfast was really poor.
Staff are friendly and the location is near and well accessible from I-5 Hwy. Breakfast and parking is fine. Restaurants & 7 eleven nearby. Would consider to stay next time..
Noise(explicit) from next door and people passing through the hallway.
Front staff were very accomdating. We were allowed to check out later because we had a night flight out of San Diego.
King size room a joke. King bed crammed into tiny room. Very uncomfortable. Worst HIexpress i've ever stayed in. Pool sign posted on pool gate is repulsive and totally uninviting. The trash outside the hotel needs to be cleaned up more often.
There was blood in the bathroom dor, we slept with flys...
Excellent beds, Wifi was awesome for multiple devices. Clean, comfortable,
Staff was nice
Very clean and cosy room
Liked: cleanliness, value, gym, pleasant employees, location, amenities (frig, microwave, etc.)
Disliked: AC unit didn't work very well, smell inside the gym, internet didn't work really
Staff were really Nice and helpful. Next door to rubio's fish tacos. The rooms were so clean and comfortable and breakfast is included.
good breakfast, comfortable and clean rooms
not a lot of action in this area
The drone from the older air conditioning unit wasn't too pleasant. The location along the stretch of car yards wasn't exactly a picturesque stretch of road to be staying on.
The Staff is very friendly, very helpfull. We went there for 3 days and then we proceed to S. Diego. On the return trip to LA, we decided to stay one more night on the same hotel, cause we were so pleased with everything. The breakfast is great, the rooms are great. Everything is very, very good.
