Great place for the price! The room we had was clean and comfortable . The family operators were very courteous and pleasant. Several choices for restaurants just down the street. Small bathroom, but a good shower. The tv was ok - but could not get CBS, ABC or NBC. Several others including HBO were ok. Would stay there again because... More

Cheap hotel when we decided not to drive all the way home. The staff was polite and prompt. There were cigarette burn holes in the comforter and we could not get the internet to connect. The room was clean. We were only there for about 9 hours total.

I stayed here for two nights. I was a little hesitant when I drove up as I had booked room in advance from Phoenix. I used my Wyndham rewards to stay there as it only required 8000 points which is great for a Super 8. And the best part was when I left a night early they refunded my points!!!!

Keep on driving to Yuma or El Cajon, this place does not deserve your business. This was an old Howard Johnson that someone decided to paint and try to put a pretty face on. It didn't work. Everything about the rooms is old and worn out despite the new paint. Outside is ugly and dirty. No one in the family... More

Dear SanDiegoSlim: I deeply regret that your stay with us did not meet your expectations; we normally do a much better job of impressing our guests. As you mentioned, our property was once a Howard Johnson, and we have undergone extensive remodeling; your comments here will serve as a guideline on areas we still need to improve. I will be...
