This is the first time the online review community has set me wrong. This place got decent stars on TripAdvisor so I pulled in. I was driving from Vegas to San Diego and it was too late to push over the pass. All I needed was a place to rest. Whoa. Check-in was fine although not friendly. The room was... More

Very nice people,very relaxing atmosphere. I would recommend this place to anyone seeking a place to stay for the night or for an extended stay. Checked in on Friday and stayed for three days.Really treated well with an outdoor pool to lounge in for some added comfort.

We stayed here based on the good reviews and the low price: we were not disappointed. The rooms were modern and clean and the bed very comfortable. There are plenty of places to eat close by. We thought it was the perfect place for an overnight stop if you're traveling to/from San Diego.

I wasn't sure what to expect as this appeared to be an older property and I didn't know much about the area. However, I went with the reviews posted by others and it was worth it. At first glance, it does look old and tired but once you are inside the room, you can see the results of renovations. I... More
