Great price and good location to all highways, food, and only a short ride to the ocean. I believe once the remodel is done it’ll be even better. Our room was very clean, only thing that would have been nice and it’s not major was I wish our rook had had a microwave. Pool and hot tub and were very clean too:

very limited wheelchair accessible rooms

Cons: Accommodate guests who need the wc accessible room WITHOUT additional charge so that my children can use the toilet and take a shower.
Hotel manager wanted to charge extra for wheelchair accessible room for my children both using wheelchairs. We had booked our reservation with a price guarantee with special request on wc accessibility shower but the manager said she didn't see any notes on our reservation. As a result, my children had to use the toilet in the lobby and skip their showers:((

Excellent value for the money.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We always stay here when we come down to the Safari Park. Location is adjacent to the freeway, but rooms are well insulated. Good restaurants nearby. Same friendly front desk person checked us in. Breakfast is pretty good, nothing fancy, but decent selections.

Escondido Visit

We needed a place to stay for one night. It looked really good on the website but was a disappointment when we arrived. It is close to shopping and the I-15. For the price we would look for better accommodations next time.
