Ideal location, good discounts



Nice and comfortable. A four night stay got us a decent discount on room rates. The swimming pool is warm and large. Breakfast menu was ordinary but more or less satisfactory. Must appreciate the staff for its help and assistance. The hotel is at a comfortable distance from the places you would love to see in San Diego but in terms of the location, its kinda lonely. Lovely flowers and plants around but the rooms are just too close together. So thumbs down for privacy. Overall would stay again on next visit. Will probably try their extended stay package.

Best low budget rates but there are few hitches



My buddies and I had an amazing time in San Diego. I was there in the last week of December and almost first week of January. We had stayed at California Suites Hotel. Now there are some good things and bad things about this hotel. Good thing is that it is very economical. The hotel offered attractive discounts on room rates which suited our limited budget. Plus, my friend had booked the room 10 days in advance, so we got additional discounts. Cable showed HBO channel. Though we hardly watched much of television. Continental breakfast was ok. However our rooms were small, albeit clean. Internet service was slow. And the staff is a bit slow again, don't respond fast to queries. Well, if are looking for a really budget hotel and if you can ignore the non-responsive nature of the staff, I think this hotel will suit you. P.S.- the outdoor swimming pool was really good!

Best rates but services slow



My budget was pretty low for a vacation in San Diego. Hence I was looking for an accommodation that would be just right – rock bottom in prices but good facilities. I picked California Suites Hotel only because it fit my budget. Frankly I did not like this hotel much. Gosh, the services, the staff was so slow. And there is nothing remarkable to write about complimentary breakfast. Sometimes I even had breakfast outside in nearby restaurants. But two things that did not disappointment me were the room rates and the swimming pool. I have been to a good many hotels now, but this hotel's got the best rates. No questions on that! Anyway from next time, if my budget allows I will go for a better hotel but if the budget's gonna be the same as this time, then I would opt for California Suites Hotel. Let's see!

Ok ok types budget hotel



Hotels play a important role in making your vacation better and comfortable. This time, on my vacation to San Diego I stayed at the California Suites Hotel which is a budget hotel. My expectations were not very high as it is a budget hotel. Nevertheless, the room I got was clean with a lovely view, though small and not very spacious. Room service was quite all right for the prices. This is not a 5 star hotel, so I could not complain much. I don't have complaints about the rooms or the service but I definitely have something to say about the complementary breakfast. It wasn't quite an sumptuous as the hotel promises and the bagels were often not fresh. Nevertheless, its a hotel definitely worth a try for its prices and location.

I don't enjoy vacations where I waste more time on commuting than on sightseeing. So this time on my San Diego vacation, I carefully researched and selected California Suites Hotel. The best part of this hotel is its location only for which I chose to stay here. Beaches and other major tourist areas were nearby. San Diego International Airport is also very near from the hotel. So no matter, wherever I went, commuting to any destination took very less time. But before you rush to book your stay here keep in mind that there is nothing fancy about this hotel. It is very basic and happily suited my budget. I was not very impressed with the services and didn't like the complementary breakfast that was provided to me. All in all, this hotel is good only for its location and affordable rates. If you are looking for a great price, then this is it!

Good location, close to beaches



I had a great time on my recent San Diego beach vacation with my friends. After a long time, my friends and I had taken out time from our busy schedules and had a fantastic time lazing around, playing volleyball and sailing at the sandy beaches. We wanted a hotel from where beaches are nearby so we had chosen California Suites Hotel. It is located in the middle of San Diego from where San Diego International Airport and the lovely beaches were just a stone's throw away. Besides the hotel provided the best possible rates. But other than its location and rates, don't expect too much from this place. The outdoor swimming pool was a relief. We got fresh fruits only once in our complementary breakfast. It is a good hotel considering the best rates it offers.

Basic budget hotel



I had gone with a bunch of my friends to San Diego. As recommended by one of my pals, we decided to stay at the California Suites Hotel. As this was a budget hotel, we weren't expecting much. Our room was very basic but well-furnished with microwave, refrigerator and stuff you need. Major reason for choosing this hotel was its prices which suited our budget. In fact, you can safely say this hotel provides the best rates among all the hotels we checked especially the hotels in Gaslamp Quarter (Gaslamp topped our things-to-do itinerary). Other good point about the hotel which we figured later was its location. Its very well placed from where Little Italy, beaches and of course my favorite Gaslamp Quarter were nearby. But yes, I want to warn visitors who are thinking of going to this hotel- staff is not very hospitable and rooms are very basic. So if you are comfortable with this and want to have good time on a limited budget then I think this hotel is the best price you can get.

Decent hotel for the rates you get



A trip to San Diego had been on the cards for a very long time, but the budget always posed a constraint. Accommodation in a good San Diego hotel costs a fair amount of money and so we were waiting to find the best rates. A friend suggested California Suites Hotel and we checked out the rates. Just the kind we were looking for. Now you can't expect the moon when you are looking for a bargain. But we were pleasantly surprised to see the complimentary breakfast, which was quite fresh, nothing lavish. Besides, they have a pretty big swimming pool, that was definitely a bonus. About the rest, we got decent rooms, nothing fancy, but ok. The staff was a little laid back, but that's not surprising in a budget hotel. One great thing about this hotel is its location, pitched right in the center of the city. So we could simply hop over to the San Diego's best tourist spots without spending a bomb on commute. All said and done, its a nice enough affordable hotel with the best rates, that offers some good discounts too! You get to have a good time well within your budget. Next time we go to San Diego, we plan to stay in this hotel again. I think that says it all!

Good budget hotel

On a recommendation of a friend, I had stayed in California Suites Hotel on my latest vacation to San Diego. Primary reason for staying in that hotel was its central location. Gaslamp Quarter, Old Town, beaches and other attractions which interest me were near the hotel. Besides the hotel offered good discounts on my stay. Although I had my inhibitions to stay in this hotel earlier, the hotel exceeded my expectations. The services were satisfactory and staff was good. It is not a very fancy, willy-frilly type of hotel but because of its prompt services, it is a good choice for budget travelers.

Good central location

San Diego is a lively city which I enjoy thoroughly on every visit. Usually I end up spending most of my time on the beaches. But about two weeks back when I went to SD, I took some time off for visiting Balboa Park. I was also lucky to listen in to some great music at Mainly Mozart at Old Town, and roamed the streets of Old Town. Mercifully, my hotel – California Suites Hotel is centrally located so most of these San Diego sites are nearby. I didn't face any difficulty in commuting and the services at this hotel are great value for the prices they charge. Plus, I got some good discounts on my stay so I saved some more. Am wondering why I didn't see more of San Diego on my earlier visits.

Hotel with best central location

Just back from San Diego after a week long stay there. This time I stayed at the California Suites Hotel. I liked this budget hotel for one particular reason- its location. During my stay there, San Diego Restaurant Week was going on. And from my hotel, most of the participating restaurants in different locations were nearby. One day I dined in Gaslamp Quarter, the other day in colorful Old Town, some day in beautiful La Jolla. Not even for once, did I face any difficulty in commuting. Due to its central location, I saved good deal of money on commuting. Even the San Diego International Airport was hardly 15 minutes away. Besides the hotel services were pretty satisfactory and the hotel rates were quite affordable.

Awesome Discounts For Budget Travel

Last week I set off to explore San Diego with a limited budget. I looked for a hotel which don't burn a hole in my pocket. So on a recommendation from a friend, I chose to stay in California Suites Hotel. The hotel was offering me awesome discounts on a week's stay there. Services were pretty good, in fact much better than what I had expected. There was complimentary breakfast, laundry facilities and staff was friendly. This hotel is centrally located, so going to Old Town, Gaslamp Quarter and other attractions was much easier. Overall I would give this hotel 3 on a scale of 5. It was nice staying there.

Good Hotel For Budget Travelers

I had been postponing my San Diego vacation for a long time. But this October I decided to take a break from my hectic schedule and took off for San Diego. I stayed at California Suites Hotel for two reasons. Firstly, its very well connected to all the the the major attractions of San Diego including my favorite Old Town, Gaslamp Quarter and the beaches. So that means I saved time, energy and money on commuting. Apart from that, I got good discounts on my 10 day long stay there. For any of you who wants to enjoy good services at budget prices, this is the hotel to stay in.

Best location and decent services

I had gone to San Diego in September with my friends. We all are big time foodies so quite obviously, our main focus was to take full advantage of San Diego Restaurant Week. We booked our rooms at California Suites Hotel. Its a nice budget hotel with pretty decent staff and services. But the main reason we chose this hotel was its location. It was hardly 15 minutes drive away from the San Diego International Airport and all the major places where restaurants were participating in the restaurant week were nearby such as La Jolla, Gaslamp Quarter, Old Town and more. So it was quite easy for us to commute to different places.

Tucked away in the middle of San Diego

After slogging it out for almost a year, I badly wanted a break from my crazy schedules.This time I chose San Diego for a short vacation.A couple of friends recommended California Suites Hotel and I found some good info about the hotel on the net as well. Well, for once,the info I received was accurate. This hotel is quite a neat place - the kind of I was looking for to have a quiet, relaxing time. Its got some pleasant scenery around, nice collection of plants and flowers and is peaceful. Its kind of tucked away from the humdrum of San Diego although its bang in the middle of the city. Services were good and the staff was hospitable too. I had heard a lot about San Diego's Old Town and the beaches and fortunately they were just a short drive away from hotel. It was a good stay and I had a nice time. It didn't cost me a fortune and they gave some good discounts as well.

Two words, bed bugs.

We stayed here a couple of nights, and rented two rooms. My little sisters shared a bed/blankets and woke up with clustered, itchy bug bites. At the time we didn't assume they were from the hotel, but the next couple mornings they woke up with more. Whether it was fleas or bed bugs or some other biting insect, it was DEFINITELY from the hotel.

It seems there are some semi-permanent residents there that were very sketchy/borderline alarming.

The walls were super thin, we stayed on the second floor and we could hear every person that walked by as if they were an LA helicopter.

The staff was nice, cordial, and at times very helpful, but I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.
I would've given them two stars but they lose a star for having all these fake CitySearch five star reviews. That's despicable in my book.

A good choice for comfortable stay in San Diego

After reading some positive reviews on the net, I chose to stay at the California Suites Hotel in San Diego. But frankly, I was a little sceptical. But once I checked in, I found that the reviews were true. The hotel indeed is a good choice for staying in San Diego. The rooms are clean and have everything one needs for a comfortable stay. The pool is great. Besides, it?s close to the airport, all the great tourist spots and the beaches. And need I mention the superb breakfast! All said, a great place to stay without spending a fortune.

Nice hotel with a great location

I booked California Suites Hotel by reading some good reviews about it on the net. Frankly, for the money it cost me, the services were excellent. My room was clean and comfortable, the view from the window was fantastic, the free breakfast was great and the large swimming pool was a nice surprise. I would say it is one of the best budget hotels that I have ever stayed in.

A good economical hotel

I stayed at the California Suites Hotel with a friend during our last holiday in San Diego. The room in which we stayed was great and it was exactly what we were looking for. It was a clean, well located, nicely staffed hotel with splendid view. Usually in the evening, we used to sip some champagne after a good swim in the big pool. And as far as price is concerned it was in fact quite economical.

Worth staying for extended period

Since I had relocated to San Diego for my new job, I stayed at California Suites Hotel for over a couple of months. The best part about the hotel was its home like ambience and my well equipped room which had everything I needed. There was a fast Internet connection, voice mail, a microwave, a mini-fridge, phone, etc. Besides, the rates were affordable and did include some other services such as a weekly maid service and some great breakfast. The staff was friendly, and the hotel was located near to my new workplace. For an extended stay package, it was good value for money.
