Hotel was fairky nice and generally pretty clean. The area around the hotel seemed to be very quiet. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Only complaints: fire alarms repeatedly went of around the rooms, including our room, for around an hour and no one called to explain the problem. Also another guest called our room early in the morning thinking we were laundry!!!! Maybe make itva little more difficult for guests to contact other rooms, just an idea. Otherwise, I would definitely stay there in the future.

Hotel very close to UC San Diego. Parking charge is too high $18 per night seems like daylight robbery. Parking spots are too tight inside the hotel facility. Breakfast room is too tight. It was like a zoo in the morning with hardly any space to move around. Breakfast is passable - just enough to get some calories for the morning.

The room was nice. There was one bed, but 3 guests, so one of us was to use the sleep sofa. We couldn't find the bedding for the sofa so had to call the office. A set of bedding was delivered quickly. There is a good brew pub within a short walk from the motel. The complimentary breakfast is the best we have ever had at a motel.... the offerings were plentiful and varied.
