I was not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. If you are looking for a hotel because you want to do things in the area - Wild Animal Park for example - and not looking for a hotel experience, this is the place. I was there for a sporting event, all I wanted was somewhere to take a shower and sleep. The breakfast was not so great. If I see one of "those" waffle makers again, I will scream. All I wanted was coffee, which I got.
First the bad: (1) The beds were comfortable enough but too high, high enough to be hazardous for older folks getting out of bed. (2) The front desk management says all room are non-smoking rooms but signs on the outside walls say smoking is allowed in some rooms. We rented two "non-smoking" rooms but they were soaked (if that's the proper term) with old cigarette smoke, to which I am super-sensitive. After spending a few minutes in each of the two adjacent ground floor rooms I realized that staying in either of them would provoke my asthma enough to make me really ill, so I returned to the desk and complained. They assured me the rooms were nonsmoking but that if we wanted to move they had better rooms for $10 more per room per night. We examined the second floor rooms and found them to be much nicer in almost every way so made the move and paid the added charge. (3) There seem to be fewer parking spaces than rooms.

I stayed here for a party in the area for New Years Eve. The desk clerk was great help with getting me to park as close to my room as possible. It was very cold and the heating was great. Free breakfast was more than adequate. I have no complaints and would stay there again...the price was good too.

Escondido's agricultural roots thrive in the city's wineries. East of town, important research takes place amid the safari setting at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. There, researchers work to save endangered animals, such as giant pandas, cheetahs, and rhinos. Casinos line the road that leads to the Palomar Observatory. Open to the public, its centerpiece is the 200-inch Hale telescope.
