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

Though this property is nice to look at on the outside the roaches in the room speak differently. one crawled across my son while he was laying down and caused my daughter to not be able to sleep all night. I don't have roaches in my house, I certainly don't want them in my motel room. Really sad. For the... More

I had originally called to guarantee late arrival and everything seemed to be ok. When we arrived I handed the clerk my printed confirmation. Then I am told my reservation could not be found, I this point I'm tired of being on the road just wanted to lay down. It takes the clerk about twenty minutes to tell me my... More

We requested and had been put in a "non smoking" room, the room stunk of stale smoke it was disgusting. 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

Nice freshly painted on the outside, but don't go in. Damp musty smell in rooms is now on my clothes, the most noisiest place I have ever stayed, I could even hear the cockroaches playing. booked for two nights i should of walked away as soon as i opened the room door, paid the same amount as staying two nights...

I pre-booked this place online while pressed for time and didn't read any reviews beforehand. Only saw that it was ranked 3/5 or 3.1/5 on a couple of sites that aggregate user reviews and went ahead with it. Just wanted a place out of town with free parking to stay for one night, after staying downtown most of the trip.... More

...but this one is top three of the worst hotels I've stayed at, with over 25 years of touring under my belt... Arrived late in the evening. As someone else mentioned in here - locked door and safetyglass with intercom at check-in should be a proper warning sign. Dirty room, a booked non-smoking room stank of rancid smoke and had... More
