Staff and customer base
I checked in earlier than my husband, and everything went smoothly. The staff is friendly and very helpful. There were always about four staff at the front desk.
There were many families staying to go sightseeing. Many people come by car.
It takes about 30 minutes to get to the hotel from San Diego International Airport. There is a supermarket within walking distance where you can purchase alcohol and food. Because it is a nice neighborhood, even the supermarkets were clean. There were many restaurants and supermarkets that were open until late, which was very convenient.
A sushi restaurant near the hotel.
The food was delicious.
I had a nice stay at this hotel. It is a very clean and large hotel. I enjoyed the beautiful garden as well. Also, it was very nice to be able to upgrade my room to a spacious room. The view from the room was great. I think the room was big enough for a large amount of people. Also, because the living room and the bedroom were separated, I was able to spend a comfortable time in the morning, without having to worry about waking up my husband who was still asleep. If you want to stay at a hotel outside of downtown San Diego, this is the perfect hotel to stay at.
