THEN AND NOW
We are on El Cajon Blvd., a historic neighborhood that was once the primary transportation route from San Diego to Arizona, before the construction of Interstate 8. Our neighborhood of Rolando, called this for its distinctive rolling hills, has a burgeoning restaurant scene which boasts many award-winning restaurants like Terra American Bistro, Bistro Sixty, Bridges Bar & Grill, Next Door craft beer & wine bar, Alforon Lebanese Cuisine, and much more! Our neighborhood is going through a major transformation, new commercial and housing buildings are sprouting up, bringing new energy to our area. We are very excited about this resurgence in our quaint neighborhood.
We are a modest, AAA 2-diamond hotel with a single-minded dedication to consistent service, quality, and value. We offer many free amenities that may cost you extra in other hotels: free wireless internet, free parking, free coffee and tea service all day, a thoughtfully selected free movie library, DVD players in all guestrooms, and a nice complimentary expanded continental breakfast that includes hard boiled eggs, fresh waffles, a variety of freshly baked bagels and pastries, cereals, oatmeal, fruit salad, juices and coffee.
