My husband and I stayed here at the beginning and end of out two week stay in California. We were highly impressed with this under-rated hotel as the room, amenities and welcome were above our expectations. We booked through booking.com & got huge clean and spacious room with very comfy beds and good aircon. The bathroom was cleaned to a... More

If you were just driving by, you might keep going, but don't be fooled. This property has been carefully maintained and kept up to date, it was clean and comfortable, the staff was first-rate, breakfast was more than adequate, and the price was terrific for all of the above. We would definitely stay here again. The only downside worth mentioning... More

Good way to save money if you are visiting San Diego but don't want to pay the hotel prices and prepared for the 30min drive. San Diego Safari Park was only a short drive away (exactly what you need to get there early and after a long day at the park). We had a one-storey room at the back so... More

My wife and I were visiting San Diego for the first time and were looking for a motel. I was not sure I wanted to stay this far from the zoo since we'd be visiting it the next day. We had a VERY early flight and I was exhausted. They let us check in SEVERAL HOURS early at no cost,... More

We booked this hotel for Comic Con weekend due to their price. We were pleaded with what we got. We were in their back building, which was an old 1950's motel. The rooms were small but functional with 2 Queen beds. Staff were friendly and the room was clean

We booked this hotel based on its price and the excellent reviews of others here on TripAdvisor. The room was done to a high standard and the bed was extremely comfortable. The staff were pleasant. We were in a ground floor room at the front, right next to the ice machine, which we could hear being used. The traffic was... More

This hotel was recommended for a recent conference I attended. I was skeptical. How could it be decent at such a good price? I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was recently updated, clean, comfortable. The breakfast was basic, but good. The lady at the front desk was very helpful. If you need a clean place to stay without breaking the... More

We stayed here longer than we have ever stayed in a hotel/motel. We were there for 3 weeks. Our granddaughter was in a play and was graduating from high school. Both events 3 weeks apart and we wanted to be there for both. The people who run the motel are super nice. The place was very clean and they check... More

When we first arrived, we were a bit concern about the exterior look, it looks old. However, the inside was fine. The bed was comfortable, and sheets are clean, the pillow didn't feel disgusting as a two star motel often felt. It is a family run place, and Sangita is a really nice and friendly host. She made us feel... More

The price was moderate, and the 2-queen room was clean and spacious enough to move around in. It was quiet at night. You need to drive to restaurants and sights, but we didn't mind that. The breakfast was adequate--boiled eggs, make-your-own waffles, various cold cereals, fresh milk, several kinds of rolls, coffee, tea, etc.
