Excellent budget hotel as a base for sightseeing

Stayed here as a family of 4 for 3 nights & definetly pleased with our choice! Room is spacious with 2 Big beds tho bathroom space is limited. Picked this hotel for Free parking facilities which were a bonus but you DO need a car if staying here otherwise would need to use uber/lyft to get around as nowhere is walking distance. Pool was nice & big & the jacuzzi really lovely. Open til 10pm so perfect to relax after a day out & about! Room had a safe (in closet) 2 on-site restaurants - went to The Waffle Spot for breakfast (guests recieve 10pc off coupon) & were very pleased with choice. Overall i would recommend this place- it also worked out Much cheaper than downtown accomodation & modern, clean & safe.

The best price/quality ratio you can get

This is certainly a good place. Rooms were cleaned every day, staff was helpful, and they got a pretty good Mexican cosine offered at a restaurant. Keep in mind that it's not a 4-5 star hotel, but for the price they ask - I strongly believe it's the best you could get in the area. I've seen a lot worse places in Europe with the same price.

Wirklich sehr gutes Motel für den Preid

Wir waren 4 Nächte hier für 50€/Nacht war das während unseres 3-wöchigen roadtrips das beste Preis/Leistungsverhältnis. Auf einem Niveau mit 100€ Motels. Zimmer typisch Motel, kleines Bad, Bett war gut und nicht zu weich, insgesamt andprechend. Alles sauber und hygienisch. Freeway Lärm kaum zu hören, dennoch Oropax sund bei uns eh Standard in US Motels. Mit dem Auto nur 10min in die Stadt oder an die Strände, kostenlos parken an allen Stränden möglich (mit Berufsverkehr zw 8-10 Uhr und 16-19 Uhr etwa +10min rechnen). Einkaufszentren 5min um die Ecke. Wifi läuft gut, Parkplatz kostenlos, Frühstück exklusive. Was wir dazu sehr gut fanden: - Ansprechender beheizter Pool vorhanden mit Liegen - Heisser Whirlpool vorhanden zum relaxen - Fitnessraum klein aber sehr gut - Waschmaschinen ($1.75) und Trockner ($1.25) vorhanden - Bei Ankunft Zimmer sehr kalt, in 5min wurde uns ein Heizlüfter gebracht - Im dazugehörigen Waffle Spot Restaurant gibt es ganz gutes Frühstück ähnlich wie Dennys/IHOP Daher alles in allem wirklich eine Topwahl, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt! Besonders für den Preis waren wir sonst mur in ekligen Travellodges oder Motel 6. Das hier ist eine Liga höher.

Das Personal ist sehr nett, und die Räume sind gemütlich eingerichtet. Gratis Pool, Wifi und Parkplätze vorhanden. 2 Restaurants: 1x Waffle Spot, welches Frühstück serviert und 1x Amigo Spot, welches Mexikanisches Essen serviert (nicht sehr zu empfehlen). Ansonsten super! Die Lage im Hotel Circle ist super, man ist in 10 - 20 Minuten überall in San Diego! Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt.

Idéal pour notre étape

Nous avions besoin d un hôtel à San Diego car nous avions un avion très tôt et venions de LA en famille. Cette hôtel est super ! Le parcage devant la chambre est super pratique. La piscine et le jacuzzi super propre. Les chambres sont top, moderne, port usb pour recharger son portable à plusieurs endroits. Service super sympa et le restaurant mexicain est très bon pour de bonnes portions et bon marché.
