You get what you pay for
I suppose you get what you pay for... For the low cost, we got a loud room that wasn't terribly clean. Bed was uncomfortable with uneven springs and rough sheets... lighting in the room was very low and felt drab. The floors didn't feel well cleaned and the walls and bathroom could use more love than just a paint job. For an overnight, it sufficed, but we would pay a little extra next time for another hotel. Also, it was very loud at night with water pipes knocking, unknown slams and alarms and neighbors talking through paper-thin walls. Not a great stay, but it'll work in a pinch.

San Diego business trip-April
Good hotel for a short stay. Location was solid. The hotel is a bit dated but fine for an overnight business stay.

Pros and Cons
Pros: Great breakfast (as with most H.I. Express) and excellent service. From bellman chopping up good convo, the front desk helping me out in the business center, to the housekeeping being accommodating, service was better than what I've experienced in more high end chains. King size bed was clean and soft. Carpet was dated, but maintained. Tub was clean, rooms were quiet (especially for being so close to the hwy.) Cons: There seemed to be a stain on the bathroom curtain and the window sun shield from a past guest Would be nice if I could use the guide functionality for the TV as I had no clue what I was watching (but that's about as nitpicky as you can get..)

Good enough
Bring your own pillows. The ones provided by the hotel are way too soft and flimsy. Even the "firm" pillow is a flimsy thing. The room was clean and the staff were polite and friendly.
