The staff at Days Inn on Hotel Circle were beyond exceptional. We booked our room to be near our two year old grandson, who was gravely ill at a local hospital. His hospital stay turned out to be much longer than expected. The hotel staff was extremely understanding of our issue, and has extended our stay several times. They also provided us with additional discounts to help defer the mounting costs we were experiencing.
By the way, our room was just as great. It was clean, warm and comfortable.
To all of the staff members that assisted us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Overall it was a great hotel, in the middle of San Diego, so getting from one place to another was not difficult at all. Having free breakfast was an added plus because many place don't offer that or charge you extra. especially smaller hotels.
The room had all you needed, coffee maker, fridge, microwave, shower/tub combo, hair dryer, and of course the bed.
Free Parking and Wifi!

"Nice facilities, mixed service at a big property"
This place takes up several dozen acres between the freeway and the Fashion Valley Mall, and caters to convention crowds up to a few thousand people, so size means that things can fall through the cracks -- the next room's dinner trays sat outside their door for 3 days, being picked over by birds and kicked around by passersby before it was cleaned away.
Room in the bigger tower was well-appointed and comfortable. Second sink beside bathroom was convenient. Excellent massaging shower head in shower/tub combination. Nice decorative curtains were useful for keeping the room dark at night. Balcony had nice view of courtyard and pool, but you're pretty far from the ocean and downtown.
Pool and sauna were big and clean, but unattended during the slow-period holiday, and most of the on-site dining and services were closed. Access to the transit stop was excellent, and the bell desk has a good one-page guide to using the trolley and buses. You are somewhat isolated by the freeways and canyons, so nothing interesting is within walking distance. Mall is enormous, if that's your thing. (Why are you going to the mall on vacation?)
I go to San Diego a few times a year, and usually stay closer to downtown and Balboa Park, but prices there are high, so you have to choose between a nice room and a commute, or a less-than-perfect room with the park nearby. I go back and forth about which is preferable.

Spain’s foothold in California began here with Mission San Diego de Alcalá, a tourist-friendly church built in 1769. Nearby, Old Town’s historic buildings feature trendy bars and restaurants. Other major attractions include SeaWorld, Qualcomm Stadium, and Mission Bay Park, the nation’s largest waterfront park. South in Point Loma, the Cabrillo National Monument offers panoramic views of San Diego.
