Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DESdmtc Thin walls and electrical issues
Overall, a clean property at a decent value. I've stayed in four separate rooms for business trips and all suffer from thin walls and electrical issues. I would recommend staying on the top floor or you'll think there is an elephant with a small bladder staying above you. Every room I've stayed in (four rooms) is also plagued with the same electrical issue. The tv, direct tv box, coffee maker, microwave and mini fridge are all plugged into the same outlet. Thus, every few minutes, (when the fridge motor kicks on) the direct tv box resets and the tv goes black for a about 5-10 seconds while the box resets. They've attempted to remedy the problem in some of the rooms with battery backups for the fridge but it still doesn't work. FYI, Unplugging the fridge fixes the problem.
Other than that, for the price and proximity to del mar fairgrounds and beach, it's a good value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by enzamatic Location can't be beat, breakfast good.
I chose this hotel primarily for the location and the breakfast. It gets dark by 5:30 in Nov in North County San Diego, and so it's important for me to stay somewhere that has some restaurants nearby, and some places you can get outside in the morning before work. Travelling alone, I chose this location because of the easy access to the beach just south, which is also the "dog beach". It's a nice walk with some hills available, beautiful view, and a nice rock you can sit on to watch the surf, surfers, and watch the dogs play, maybe read a book. With people visiting to walk their dog in the morning there are enough people around to feel safe, and honestly dog people are usually approachable and friendly (as are the dogs hah!).
It's also convenient to be able to grab some breakfast with protein before heading into the office rather than just breads
