The I-5 interstate runs close to this efficient, yet pleasant hotel, giving guests easy access to the airport, downtown, beaches, and popular attractions. Fortunately, most rooms face a courtyard and traffic noise is surprisingly subdued. The facade is mock Spanish colonial, but rooms look like most standard business quarters. Accouterments include a small desk with proper outlets, plus microwaves, coffeemakers, small fridges, decent mattresses, and clean, well-maintained baths. Those who pay a bit more get a balcony and/or whirlpool tub. There's a small pool, complimentary continental breakfast, and free shuttle to the airport and other locations. The complimentary hot breakfast is a boon and Old Town's multitudinous eateries are scattered around nearby streets.
