Quiet, comfortable room, clean property, great location, perfect price. This Econo Lodge is easy to find and located in a mellow mainstream area. We walked to beach, drove to beach, rested in room, chose among many restaurants.

Knew it would be bad when I saw the "BUGS BE GONE" truck out front. Very unfriendly women at front desk. Booked online and they had me down for the wrong date. We had to pay twice! Hey did not have a cot. Don't all hotels have a cot?

Hotel well kept up from the outside and inside. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and had a frig, microwave, coffee station, air-conditioning, and nice size flat screen. We left to early to try the free continental breakfast. Would stay again if were in the area again.

The staff are nice, flexible, courteous, the complimentary continental breakfasts are fairly generous, the location is superb, the pool was great for the kids and the rooms are clean. It's walkable to restaurants and bars and beach, close to Balboa Park, the airport, Legoland and shopping. It's not fancy, but it's quiet, clean and just what you need for the... More

The hotel looked very nice from the outside and the interior was especially clean. The front desk staff were all very friendly and they were happy to greet us each time we pass through the lobby. We had breakfast in the hotel each morning (since we all loved it), but within walking distance of a block or two, there were... More

Everything closer was booked. This is only 8.1 miles from legoland. The room was nice but narrow, but not a problem since it had 30 or 40 foot high ceilings, which made it seem bigger. AC worked great, nice beds, nice big TV, mini fridge, coffee maker, hairdryer and a nice continental breakfast that had more than just danish and... More

I choose this property because of it's location and on the recommendation of a friend. I was attending a seminar and wanted to be close to water and the venue. Stone-step Beach is a close walk. Be aware there are a lot of steps! Because of that it is secluded and quiet. The hotel was an average room with decent... More
