Check-in and check-out was quick and easy, and the room was clean as a whistle (yay!). The room was equipped with a microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker (with regular and decaf coffee and condiments), ironing board, iron and hair dryer. A room service menu was provided (food delivered via a delivery service). A quick drive up the hill on Clairemont Drive (about 2 minutes) brings you to a variety of quick-serve restaurants (Carls Jr, Starbucks, Roberto's Mexican) a grocery store (Sprouts Market), and a Rite Aid drugstore. A left turn down the hill on Clairemont Drive brings you immediately to onramps to the I-5, for an easy drive (south) to Sea World, Hillcrest (Balboa Park), downtown, the airport, etc., or north to La Jolla and its attractions. Or, proceeding past the onramps brings you right into Mission Bay (ideal for walking, biking, picnic areas, people watching, etc.).
The free continental breakfast was available from 6:30 am - 10:30 am in a pleasant, very clean small dining area accessible with your room key. It had a nice variety of both hot and cold food items, with trays provided in the event you preferred to eat in your room.
The only "not-so-wonderful" items were the weird, rather lumpy pillows, and the noisy pool equipment that could really use some sound insulation around it. That said, to me the cleanliness, friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, and easy access to restaurants, markets, and the I-5) more than outweighed these 2 items. :-) less

Thank you very much for your great review of our hotel. We will discuss the matters of the pillows and pool equipment at our next meeting.
