This is a budget stay place, so I wasn't expecting much beyond a bed, the exterior looks a bit run down. I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in to my room. Whilst simply furnished, the place was nicely cleaned, the beds comfortable and the bathroom was refreshingly nice. There's plenty of parking, and the hotel is pretty close to... More

I have stayed at this motel multiple times this year while on trips into San Diego. The rooms are newer and the staff is friendly. There are a couple fast food restaurants withing walking distance and a gas station for snacks. Location is right off freeway exit.

It's not a Hilton but for $45/night, it was ideal for an overnight stay. Property is just off the 8, easy in/out. I arrived close to 1 a.m. and used the night window where a friendly employee had me checked in in short order. The room was on the 2nd floor up some slightly dicey stairs (with caution tape) but...

This hotel was pretty inexpensive so do not expect fancy rooms, workout area, or a restaurant. The rooms were very clean, the beds were very comfortable, the AC worked great in 100 degree weather, and the staff was very friendly. The pool is big and super clean; my children enjoyed it. The outside was kept as clean as the inside.... More

I stayed here overnight, however I would not mind having a longer stay. I checked in late and because the motel was full I unfortunately got a room facing the freeway, but until about 5 AM the traffic on I-8 was very light. This Motel 6 is remodeled in the new corporate style, and while it does retain some furnishings... More

I could find only two hotels/motels that would accept a dog. The other hotel wanted $100 for my dog...not going to happen. I reserved a QUEEN room and instead was given a double full.
