I reserved less than 1 day in advance with the great price and was able to use my points. The room, 241, is clean and is not noisy. The bed is good with the generous pillows. There is great customer service in the lobby and dining room. My husband and I did enjoy the great breakfast with high quality of... More

My family and I had the misfortune of spending the night in this dump of a hotel. I had made my reservation 2 days prior, unfortunately i did not pay close attention to the fine print that my reservation could not be cancelled within 48 hours. I still gave it a shot 42 hours before check in and was told... More

San Diego is a beautiful city and the hotel was good. It was nice to have a balcony. However, the motel overlooks the freeway making it hard for my husband to get a good night's sleep. I recommend a 1st floor room.

We have been staying at this particular motel for over 20 years. It's convenient to easy arrivals and departures, restaurants, and convenience stores. Shopping malls are all within easy walking distance. It's a good value for the price and has become our home away from home when visiting El Cajon, CA.

I have stayed a t this hotel for the last few days and I love it! The clerks go out of their way to help you, and the maids leave my room spotless! Breakfast is basic, but OK, and internet is good (too bad they don't have wired internet). Managers are always smiling, and it's nice to see the owners... More

I stayed one night & left with over 25 bed bug bites! My face, arms, hands, legs, feet, stomach & back were covered. It took calling corporate to get a response, and only then it was a back handed apology in an email. I was told in my email that I received these bites somewhere else. Pablo, the GM also... More

I stayed one night with an out of town guest. The room was clean comfortable and the front desk staff is awesome. Very friendly staff and no problems at all. The rooms are a little outdated but comfortable. Great stay.

BAIT AND SWITCH. Staff was rude. Turned on the whirlpool and GUESS WHAT it didn't work after several trips by hotel staff it finally... More

This property needs a total overhaul. Cockroaches everywhere. Did not stay! Staff was very apologetic and refunded out charges immediately. I felt really bad for him, you could tell he was embarrassed; he even offered to contact another property in the for us.
