Easy check in on a busy Saturday night. Didn't have a reservation, just stopped in to check rates. Great deal...room was giant compared to Motel 6. Stayed here with two kids and felt safe. Would definitely stay here again.

I arrived at the hotel at 11:20am and requested an early check-in. The front desk agent said she did not have any rooms available. I explained that I had a reservation and had made a very long trip and asked her to contact housekeeping to check if a room might be available. She refused to help and read me the... More

I don't have roaches in my house, I certainly don't want them in my motel room. Really sad. For the... More

I have asthma and was up all night coughing, there were burn marks in the sink and the place was very unclean. The bed was very uncomfortable and lumpy. The rooms were not at all sound proof, the person above... More

Typical chain motel. Room wasn't too bad at all. Unless you're going to Tijuana, it'll be pretty far from most sights in San Diego. The check-in process was the worst I ever experienced. I arrived at midnight and there was a line of about 7 guests. I just can't figure out why the check-in process took so long. It took... More
