Safari time..

A travel blog entry by nissa89


We arrived into San Diego yesterday and finally had a relaxing day. The staff at the hotel advised us that the Safari Park is roughly 40 minutes from where we're staying and would take roughly 2hrs to get there by bus! We had a look online and found a bus service that does a return trip for only $32p/p. a lot better than a $70 cab ride each way! It …

There can only be one word to describe me today.. .....RIDICULOUS!

Shaz's Words of Wisdom:

  • Rule number 1: you don't say anything until after you have finished doing something or using their service. It can and usually will back fire on you.
  • Rule number 2: listen to the advice from those who WOULD know, NOT those who …

Shaz's Fast Facts
Did you know that:

  • The total population of California alone is just over 38 million people - compare that to the 23.2 million people that live within the entire Australian country!
  • The Greater Los Angeles area is the home to approx. 18.1 million people - that's only a few short of Australia's entire …

Today was the day I had been waiting for almost my entire life! This was the day I would see some amazing, highly intelligent new creatures do their thing (& I'm not taking about me! :-)) The anticipation was high as we left our hotel this morning & set off to Seaworld San Diego. After just a short trolley/bus trip we were there & the place was …

The first REAL day of our adventure...

A travel blog entry by smarch73


Ahhhhh......we all had a great sleep last night. No-one should ever over-value sleep - it's one of my favourite things! After not eating all that well for the past couple of days, we were pretty hungry & in search of something with even a morsel of goodness. Was pretty stoked to hear that the hotel next door had a Starbucks in it. Maybe not the …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Days Hotel - Hotel Circle by SeaWorld San Diego

    Shuttles are great


    Recently stayed two nights at Days Inn, Hotel Cir. in Mission Valley part of San Diego. The room accomodations are average, at best, but if you are in town to visit the Zoo and/or Seaworld, this is a good place to stay. It offers free shuttle to both these parks, plus free shuttle to and from airport. As we flew into town, we found this shuttle quite helpful. However, I would only stay here if I was taking advantage of the shuttle!

    Not What Expected


    Stayed at this hotel four nights for the first time, and it was not what we expected. It is just a cheap roadside hotel at best. The rooms were small but clean. VERY noisy! Not good for families with chirldren who need sleep. Disturbance at 4:30AM one morning with yelling outside our room and in the parking lot. Staff did not seem interested in the noise. Pool was way to cold to swim in. This hotel circle area is to congested and noisy. Not a relaxing place to stay. Will stay in another area next time in San Diego, and for sure not at this hotel.

    Disgusted with treatment of military personal


    My son just recently graduated from MCRD. Now he is doing his training up north at Camp Pendleton. President weekend he and a few fellow Marines got a suite here. Saturday morning they awake to a knock on the door telling the men they needed to leave becuase there were golfers who were in town for the convention and they needed to give their room up to them. With the cold rain coming down, these men took their c-bags and headed for the streets to located another hotel where they could stay for the weekend. However, there were none to be found because of the golfers convention. I find this absolutely disdurbing how this hotel chain can kick military out on the street to give their room to some civilins. How does management sleep at night? I am sure they lay their heads comfortably on their pillows with a safe and secure feeling. All because of these men and women who dedicate their lives to our country. And this is the way they are shown our graditude for serving our country. I know I will never ever support The Days Inn again. As should no one else who beleives that these men and women should be shown and given the most upmost respect.

    Not "All That"


    My family and I stayed at the hotel for New Years week. The hotel fit the meaning of "You get what you pay for" The staff is kind and the PamPam grills food is tasty. Yet the rooms are old, the shuttle had only two times they would drop off and pick up passengers to Sea World, so make sure you check on that if you plan on using the services.

    Reservations are required. Also hotel circle is not the most quiet area for relaxation. It's right off the freeway and constantly busy. We thought it was like that because of the New Year celebrations, but Nope I was told it is hectic all year long. I will stay in a different area next time I plan to getaway to San Diego.

    No complaints


    We stayed here at the end of December 2003 and we have absolutely no complaints.

    Although the hotel is close to the highway, there was not much noise in our room. The room was actually very quiet and we never heard our neighbors. The shuttle from the airport was quick to come once we called it.

    The staff people were friendly and the room was clean. We would come back here if we'd travel to San Diego again.

    Dissapointed here!


    I was a bit dissapointed from a 3 night's stay at this hotel. The earlier reviewers seemed to rate this hotel very highly and maybe that's why I had high expectations. Also, I read about some "best days inn award" that it claims on the website. pros: Prompt and Free shuttle to airport, sea world, zoo. Friendly helpful staff. Restaurant on site.cons: The hotel rooms are old and it shows. The old carpet didn't seem very clean, yarns(?) were pealing off the carpet near the bathroom tiles. Some paints were pealing off from the walls. The room door sqeaked real loud everytime it was opened or closed (we had two small children who were disturbed by that). We had a room with kitchenette.

    Best Location


    We stayed here in Dec. 2003. This hotel is in a great location. It was close to the zoo, seaworld, downtown, Gaslamp Quarter, Old Town, restaurants, and shopping. The hotel is an older property, but they have done some renovations receantly. It was very clean. They have complimentary transportation to the zoo, seaworld, and the airport.

    Great Location and well kept Days Inn


    My husband and I stayed at the Days Inn from 9-6 to 9-12. It was our first time to San Diego. The Days Inn was recently renovated. The furnishings were attractive and the window curtians and bedspreads were tastefully done. It was very clean. The room had a small fridge, coffee maker, hair dryer, and iron and ironing board. All the necessities to make the stay more comfortable. They have a restuarant on the premises, called the Pam Pam. We ate their many times at the end of a busy day of site seeing. It was very convenient. They have a pool and hot tub. We used the Hot tub each night, which helped relaxe and soothe us for a good nights sleep. The Days Inn is located near many of the more popular sites, Sea World, Zoo, Old Town, and beaches. Most were only a 5 to 10 minute drive away. If you don't have a rental car, the Days Inn does have a courtesy van, which will pick you up and take you back to the airport. They also have a shuttle van transport to Sea World and the zoo. There is a bus stop in front of the Days Inn for another way to get around town. The staff were always courteous and willing to help with any questions or problems that might arise. We would stay at the Days Inn again.

    Good hotel, helpful staff, handy location


    Good clean, comfortable room, nice pool, reasonable price. Is 2-3 miles from Sea World and San Diego Airport. Very helpful staff. Rooms quiet (providing you get one that is a little way back from the front - most are). Only shows as a two star hotel, but seemed as well equipped as any of the three stars we stayed at. Would happily stay here again.

    Days Inn Hotel Circle stay


    This is an older property, but WELL kept. The staff at the Days Inn Hotel Circle was especially wonderful! I was promptly picked up at the airport and brought to the hotel where the checkin was quick and efficient. They were very helpful in arranging the hotel shuttle to take me to the Zoo; provided good information about the Trolley Tour and where to catch the bus; and even arranged for reasonable car rental with pick up and drop off.
