      Historical Traveler Reviews Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, San Diego North

      Worked out just fine

      from

      business oriented hotel but my two kids enjoyed their time here. free breakfast, rooms were nice and clean, pool was OK. Location was fine, 10 minutes or so to the zoo, la jolla or sea world. go east on mira mesa and you will find lots of restauranst & malls five minutes away

      Nice place

      from

      We got a great room through Priceline. Comfortable beds with lots of pillows, quiet.

      The pool was kind of cold. The lobby and other public areas are classy. Parking is free.

      It's pretty far from downtown, and even Carlsbad.

      Manager with an Attitude

      from

      Booked a single room with two queen beds for three through Hotels. When checking in, was told only a queen bed was available. Party of three in front of me also told only a single queen bed was available. Couple behind us was told that no rooms were available.

      Manager of the property rudely said..." that was just the way it was. If you book through a third party all the hotel is is obligated to do is provide you a room. If you have a problem get in touch with the company that you booked the room through."

      Will never stay in their properties again regardless of price!

      Free Internet access and parking!

      from

      Wow! Stayed here one night on a 10 night sightseeing vacation in Southern California over the holidays in December 2004. Our family moved around a number of hotels in L.A. and San Diego, including Hilton, Hyatt, Marriot, Doubletree, Westin, and Holiday Inn. All others charged extra for parking and internet access. Not here! Plus free water, the rooms are just as clean and comfortable and there are three, count 'em, 3 chairs in the room, not just 1 or two, and the desk chair is an actual office chair. The only complaint my wife has is poor lighting, offset by 4 sets of towels. One other plus is that this location is in a nice quiet area removed from the freeway. Overall grade, the best of this vacation, 5 stars in my book.

      A vacation away from reality

      from

      My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel, while we were going to Sea World. The hotel is very clean. I wouldn't call it a family hotel, but it was very relaxing for a couple. The rooms are not a typical hotel room. They have this big ol desk and office chair, and a big oversized mushy chair.

      If you stay here, and they ask for your credit card when you check in "just in case" if you use your debit/atm card, you will see a charge of one nights stay on your statement for a day after you check out. I called and the accountant at the hotel and he said it gets taken off of your account automatically, and he was very nice while explaining it. So if you see this weid charge you will see a credit back to your account for the same amount.

      I would definatly reccomend this hotel for those who are looking to take a quiet break away from the everyday busy life.

      Convenient Location

      from

      Stayed for 5 nights (8/14-8/19), purchased the 5 days 3-for-1 pass to SeaWorld, SDZoo, and Wild Animal Park. Average 3-star hotel conveniently located in a bio-tech business park just off the I-805 freeway which provided easy access to all 3 parks (did not run into traffic jams). Quiet at night. There is a Chilli's restaurant across the hotel parking lot and a MacDonalds', food court, gas station 1 block away. A Von's grocery store, Target, Mervyn's and many other fast food restaurants (Carl's Jr, Del Taco) and other restaurants (Red Lobster, Black Angus) are down the road (Mira Mesa Blvd).

      This hotel caters mostly to the business traveller and hosts small company seminars in their lobby meeting rooms. The buffet breakfast was $12/adult, $6/child, selection was good & plentiful w/ make-to-order omelets & belgium waffles. The King bed was comfortable, but the room was so-so clean. The carpet, bedspread & blanket had stains (the blanket is not double-sheeted, only 1 top sheet). The chair/ottoman smelled like bad body odor (from previous guest), next time I will pack some Febreeze/Lysol spray. Clean bed sheets & towels large & fluffy. The bathroom shower was a little moldy around the edges & drain. For the most part, maid service kept the room relatively clean & tidy. The swimming pool is slightly heated and a welcome relief from hot summer days. Smaller towels provided down by the pool. The small jacuzzi was dirty (leaves, dirt, and had a film from sunscreen oils) Ice/vending machines & microwave machine located in hallway. Refrig is $10/day extra. Next time, will try the Woodfin Suites or Residence Inn (which are nearby on the same street) as these have a kitchen w/ refrig and Residence Inn includes breakfast w/ room.

      Very Nice

      from

      I stayed here for business last Friday night. The room was great: king-size comfortable bed, cushy chair with ottomon, tv that swiveled (watch it anywhere), large L-shaped desk/dresser combo, padded bench, and large mirror. Plenty of towels, glasses, & soaps, etc. Alarm clock, coffeemaker w/coffee, iron/board, hairdryer, and bottled water in room. The decor was nice, very classy. No noise. Staff was nice, fast & competent. There is a restaurant & a bar/lounge downstairs, and a Chili's across the parking lot. All this and a good rate too, highly recommended.

      Out of town value

      from

      Picked up this room on hotwire for $55 a night.

      Nice room with a comfy reading chair. It rained during our vacation and the man at the desk was nice enough to find us directions to a ChuckECheese as our children were going stir crazy. We discovered the Mira Mesa area has shopping and eateries just a few blocks away and is inbetween the 805 and 15 freeways. If you have a car and want a nice room in the San Diego area at a reasonable price, this is it.

      Quality hotel

      from

      The hotel is beautiful, the room is VERY comfortable and the staff was friendly. We were especially happy with it since we got it through Hotwire for less than 1/2 of the rate Wyndham wanted through its' regular web site. The hotel was wonderful at any price, but especially satisfying due to the low room rate we got. I would stay again.

      Nice place

      from

      Stayed two days March 2004.

      Positive: 7 stories, very quiet rooms, great breakfast, very businessperson oriented, clean, free parking, helpful and pleasant staff, good if you have a generous expense account.

      Negative: Wrong billing-twice, pricy, $10 per day for high speed Internet, in a business/industrial area so services are distant.

      Addictive Tendencies of Loneliness

      A travel blog entry by aprih.york on Dec 19, 2014

      A friend I admire pointed out how loneliness is the element of any break-up that 'varies depending on the person, how deep the relationship went, and how long the relationship had lasted' prior to the break up or in other words breaking point.



      Now the effects of break ups I have seen can be applied between: friends, best-friends, family relationships that have been shunned or have a grudge preventing such relationships, divorce and even trying ...

      ... taking 1.5 hours. Our driver was great as he parked the car, loaded a luggage trolley and took us into the terminal and right to the counter that we needed to be at to check in for our flight. Needless to say, he earned a great tip that he was very grateful to receive.

      We checked our bags (no problem with a 3rd bag this time) and proceeded to find the airport lounge that accepted our Lounge Club card here. It was an okay lounge (comfy chairs and couches), it was ...

      ... The kids don’t mind the temperature they are straight in anyway. I was a bit reluctant to have a night time swim as the pool is only slightly heated, but I knew the hot tub was waiting for me at the end!

      The Schwarz family we met at the fire pit also came and joined us in the hot tub so was nice hanging out with them. The lady actually reminded me a lot of you Jo Seymon! (Such a lovely ladies!) She has two brothers living in ...

      ... job! Make new friends together. That reality easily splits up couples. Then let’s add having a baby to try to make it all work better. I’m not going to tell you about some of the weasels I’ve encountered in my years of working on board ships. There are just as many there as in your own town and your own working environment. Affairs of the heart seem to be part of the life at sea.

      Some highlights of the fair included the student exhibitions, hypnotist show and the small jazz performance on a side stage. This presented a dilemma of course considering my personal tastes. I love education, appreciate psychology and the human mind, and absolutely adore music. I elected to spend the first hour admiring student work out of respect for my alma mater High Tech High who happened to hold some of the top prizes for innovation. ...
