The bed has roaches in it. I did rent a smoking room. The room was not clean at all. Our key cards had to be reactivated after the 1st night. Everything else was ok. I would not return to this property.

The internet is really bad and slow. Stains on walkway floors. Noisy during weekends and can hear yelling from down the road. Some staff members were friendly. It's not far from downtown and easy to walk to eat if one wanted to.

I was able to share the room with my 30+ year old son and still get a good night sleep. Typical buffet breakfast. Room was freshly cleaned. Very good stay and will be back.

The super 8 is a great hotel. I often stay there for business and they never fail to go above and beyond. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The whole hotel has recently been redone, like painting and anything else that needed to be refurbished. This includes the rooms that have all been nicely redecorated. The maid service it... More

This is a super stay value in San Diego county. Not far from major attractions with a clear shot to most anywhere via I-8 whose entrance is 2 blocks from the hotel. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Our room was on the eastern corner of the top floor (3). It was clean, quiet and quite large. It had... More

I read some negative reviews on Yelp and decided to try this place primarily due to cost and location! Pleasantly surprised would be a good description! Rooms were very clean. Updated carpet, beds, TV, and room décor. Everything worked! Free breakfast was very good. Choices included cold cereal, fruits, juices, milk, pastries, toast and hot waffles. Management and staff were... More
