This Place sucks, a lot of exposed electrical wires, AC don't work, this place isn't kept up, Look somewhere else to get a room, I wouldn't recommend this Place to no one, by the freeway so it's always noisy and pool is dirty, there was a ring of diet around pool.

Hotels in San Diego during the summer time are going to be expensive. No matter what. But hotels in San Diego during ComicCon weekend are even worse. I paid $169 a night for the "privilege" of staying in a room with 2 queen-sized beds out in El Cajon - a good 30 minutes from the beach. What a rip off!... More

We left after our 1st night here. This hotel is not well maintained - deferred maintenance of structural elements, dirty/stained walkways, non-functioning lamps and not enough electrical plugs in our room, etc. The breakfast offerings were below standard. Both the apple juice and orange juice were so watered down that they were undrinkable. No bananas offered, either, and they are... More

Checked in. Went to desk the next morning because coffee pot not working. Refrigerator not working, Elevator scary. Front desk person said no record of us checked in and she checked us in the night before. Scary, people riding bicycles on floor. Not clean at all. No room cleaning service. Very, very disappointed. Hotel was booked with flight from Vegas.... More

!!!!! STAY AWAY !!!!! This is no exaggeration. How can something like this even exist? We did not choose to stay here. We decided to use Hotwire for the first time, and Lord Jesus that was the biggest mistake of our lives. THIS PLACE IS A DUMP! Think of a bad hotel. Think of a hotel where drug lords and... More

I've stayed at this hotel 1 time and most definitely LAST TIME!! The hotel is a dump, elevator smells like a barn. Non smoking rooms smell like a Bingo hall I didn't even feel safe in my room. The only thing I good is the Customer Service from front desk girl Jennifer, I honestly feel sorry for her from all... More

I can't even explain how bad this place is for the amount of stars it has. I got out the car and the first thing I smelled was marijuana and saw a bunch of bum looking people just walking around. The front desk lady was very nice, so that was alright. We got to our room, went in for three... More

Rundown hotel, no fence or security allowing shady people to hang around. TV with very few channels to watch. Found a homeless person sleeping in the ice machine room, the sink and toilet draining slow. Yes you get what you pay for but management really needs to pay attention to what is happening. At least my experience was not as... More

This is by far the worst hotel I've stayed at. The first bad sign came when we entered the elevator. The condition of the carpeted walls was filthy, tagged and ugly. When we entered our room we noticed the furniture is way too big for the small room, and makes it feel cramped. Very very dirty floors with multiple stains.... More
