We stayed here one night while waiting for our new apartment to be ready to move into. It was fairly clean. Staff was wonderful. No free wifi, and cigarette holes and burns in the bedding. The top bedspread seemed dirty. It did the job for one night but I would not stay again.

Stayed here for five days recently and was very happy with it. Room was clean, and customer service really great. Check-in was fast and easy and they honored our requests. If you have a problem they will fix it, so you can stay here with peace of mind. Importantly, this is not a hotel which will charge you unnecessary and... More

Everyone at the front desk was super nice except the black lady. She was very rude and alwsys on personal calls. She needs more training in customer service. Nancy the manager is great. Could not ask gor a better manager.

We booked 2 bedrooms for one night. The receptionist was very friendly, however the rooms need a lot of work. The first rooms smelled like cigarette so we were changed. The other two didn't smell great but at least not cigarettes. The floor was not super clean. The chairs and covers of the bed were dirty, the lock in the... More

If you want a decent-enough place to stay that saves you AT LEAST $50/night AND still be close-ish to San Diego, then this is the place for you! Make sure to read the list of "Amenities" before booking, otherwise, you'll be in for quite a surprise. It's rather Spartan inside; i.e. bring your own shampoo and conditioner bottles, as there...

The positives are that this motel has the nicest staff I've ever met at any hotel. The other people staying in the hotel were quiet and nice. However, the room smelled so badly of mold that I needed to leave my window open the whole time I was there. It was choking, seriously. And on my last day, I saw... More

Tom Bodette the light was OFF at this Motel 6. I would avoid this place. Summer rate in San Diego was extremely high, compared to the following night, for us. Should have look elsewhere. Started with the front desk, eating candy and not being able to speak, without laughing or playing with the piece of candy. Gave us wrong directions... More
