"Very Bad"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Room was disgusting. Sheets bedding were dirty the refrigerator would not close due to the ice build up. Bed was a full size not a queen. I needed up walking away and going to the Hilton that was directly behind. This is not a two star hotel.

"Covered expectations for the price."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Location is excellent for the most common places to visit. Airport is close by as well, so it makes this hotel ideal. The hotel gives you no security phone number so Remember to dial 0 if you feel like you are in need of security or if there is too much noise outside during sleeping hours Great coffee at lobby.

"They gave my room away."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
its criminal wahat you guys did, I was stuck at work and when I called at 12:45am they told me I did'nt read the fine print and they had given my room away!?? can you imagine driving four hours thru holiday traffic, working 12 hours straght in the studio and then having no place to stay??. so, if I don't cancel I eat the room but if i'm late you give it away? I have been staying in hotels for work for 25 years and have never lived in fear that some fleabag hotel is gonna sell my room twice to make an extra buck and leave me out in the cold. just so you know telling someone they have a room 25 miles away in el cajon is not taking care of anything. despicable, I hope the same thing happens to you and soon.

"Never again."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Half of parking lot was closed. Had to walk in sand to go to my room that was located on the side that had the closed off parking area. Also had to park my car on the other side of the lot. It wasn't even close to my room. 7 am construction woke me and my guest up. The construction was literally in front of my hotel door. Never again. I would rather pay an extra $10-$20 than to stay at that place again.

"An excellent experience!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Upon arrival, check-in was speedy, the room exceeded my expectations, the amenities were well above standard. They had a very warm and welcoming staff. The pool was clean and warm, around 85°, which my son throughly enjoyed. I'm definitely planning another trip back soon!
