My daughter and I stayed in this hotel, because everything was booked because of multiple events in San Diego. First thing, my husband booked us a smoking room, because it was the only left, we did not know this. My daughter and I needed a place to stay after the One Direction Concert. Of course, a smoking room was gross,... More

When I open the room, it reaped of marijuana. The room downstairs had the door open and you could see two women dressed like prostitutes’ exposing their cleavage... More

Dude told me and boyfriend we can't come back due to the dude getting smart with me. Never go there. We had no hot water than the internet was not working. We find the hotel is not all the way clean. We see bongs from other customers.

I made a reservation for my parents and the website gave me a confirmation.. By the time my parents arrived apparently there was no booked room because the credit card did not pass(if that was the case why did it gave us a confirmation number) awkward, of course the card had money!!! My parents drove 3 hours away from home... More

Good location for us, and we liked the fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room. The bed was very comfortable. Great price for a California hotel. Very convenient location near a grocery store and the Lemon Grove Depot trolley stop.

Welcome to a small, not dirty, not immaculate room. If your plan is to spend anymore time than sleeping and showering in the room this is probably not the place for you. If you're not picky and want a decent place to sleep that has a shower, a working TV, a cool-ish refrigerator for a few cans, and a coffee... More
