Room was clean, large and had a very nice bathroom setup. Not the best selection at breakfast, but not the worst. It put something in my stomach, which was all I was looking for. They had free wifi, but it really wasn't good enough for me to do much on my phone. The biggest drawback is that when I arrived in the afternoon it was 104 outside. When I entered the hotel room the windows were open (? why ?). I turned on the air conditioner and it barely worked. I went to dinner while the air conditioner worked. When I returned it had cooled to maybe 78 to 80 which was better. I took a cool shower to compensate. I really didn't want to hassle with the staff to get a different room, so I stayed put. For the money it could have been worse. The evening staff was unfriendly and the morning staff were not friendly but they were not unfriendly. The area was a little seedy, but the hotel was fairly enclosed from the outside and I think I remember some signs about cameras. It had a refrigerator but no coffee pot, which would have been more useful than the refrigerator. For those interested, it had a pool. I liked that they had a little fenced patio in which you could opt to eat breakfast.

I have to balance my expectations with the cost of the room. Excellent location, small room for the price, limited and crowded parking, pool seemed popular (I did not use it), lobby/breakfast room way too small, staff was not too knowledgeable but vary helpful, poor choices on TV, nice bathroom and very nice shower, recently remodeled but some things were left out such as wooden furniture was worn, garbage and maid carts sitting out in the parking lot in the sun was disappointing.

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.
