Stayed for one night. Close to event we were attending in La Mesa. Room had wood floors and looked very modern and clean. Nice flat screen TV. Downsides: bathroom door did not shut completely and bed was too firm for me. Right off freeway but didnt hear any noise. Rooms would have been cheaper if we had booked direct. All... More

I stayed here for Comic-con weekend. This hotel had some of the best prices in the area when booked directly through their website (even though they were inflated for the convention). The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. I had a single queen room, which was perfect for one person. The room was bright and clean, and plenty... More

Our party of three (my 17 year old son, his friend, and myself) recently stayed at this motel for one week. We did a road tour of San Diego and found this location close enough yet within our modest budget. Hotels in San Diego are expensive. You have to go far from the city to find cheaper accomodations. This property... More

My two teens and I were in town for a short vacation. The location was easy to find and felt safe. The desk clerks were kind and friendly. The rooms looked as if they had just had a makeover (although the bright orange wall was VERY bright!). I liked the laminate floor and lack of carpet. The cons included no... More

We came here for a basketball tournament at sdsu. The place we normally stay only had smoking rooms so we gave this place a try. The rooms were newly remodled with hardwood floors and flat screen TVs. The surroundings of the hotel were quiet and not unsafe feeling at all. They had a security officer walking around all the time.... More

I have stayed at this Motel on previous occasions and it was dull and uninspiring, possibly due to management. Recently the motel has been refurbished and the atmosphere is relaxed, happy and harmonious under the new manager.

Upon check in i found several flies in my room. The dressers were badly damaged and the office staff are arrogant, lazy and racist. They dont like black people. I would not recommend this motel to my worst enemy. Your a lot better off staying at the super 8 down the street if you expect a clean room and respectable... More

I stayed for a 2 night business trip. I was pleasantly surprised at the room. It had hardwood floors, art deco towel holder and they painted one of the walls orange. It was clean and spacious for motel 6. My only two minor complaints are the Internet is slow and the shower pressure was soft. But they really impressed me... More

The room was decently priced, was very clean (has been newly remodeled), and even though we arrived after dark and couldn't tell if the neighborhood was good or not, we didn't have any problems with the location. Close to the mall and shopping. About 20 minute drive to Sea World. Would probably stay again.
