Checkin: Three desks, each with POS (point of sale) for each brand. Acknowledged status and room preferences. There is a driveway area where you can load/unload off of the street.

Status: Each property has their own dining area for breakfast and evening snack (for Homewood). For GI the breakfast is a buffet which includes sausage, bacon, eggs, fresh fruit, oatmeal, baked goods, yogurt, cereal and juice/drink. Some staff said to-order items are included (french toast, waffles, etc) while other staff said they were not, so YMMV. Upgraded internet speed with status. Checkout can be extended to 2pm irrespective of status, anything beyond 2pm incurs a partial or full days charge regardless of status.

Rooms: Good size. Shower only. Large TV. One closet, ironing board and iron, refrigerator, microwave, desk.

Amenities: Gym, pool (walls without roof so outdoor, but limited wind), washer & dryer, underground parking, on-site restaurant. Typically coffee in the lobby in the morning and water and apples put out around noon but not refreshed.

Overall: Nice property and would stay again if the location works (and rate).

Nice, new, and clean. Breakfast was a bit chaotic, some staff didnít seem to know what they were doing. A decent property overall.

Thanks for that info. I searched the hotel's web site and found no mention of washer or dryer. It baffles me that hotel managers think this is not worth mentioning.

Giving this hotel a whirl with the family next week. Given the poor reviews of the DoubleTree in downtown SD, this seemed a good compromise.

This location has quickly became my go to property when I'm in San Diego. I've stayed here twice in the past few months. I really enjoy the extra space and it is nice and clean.

Just note that this is a valet only @ $45/night

I can not recommend this place. I skipped the line and used mobile key. They had ONE person Manning two properties. Did not get any upgrade for being a diamond. Had to go to the front to get my 'benefit' of two waters. Housekeeping however is good. Very responsive and fast

Room upgrades are not a Diamond benefit at HGI properties.
