Rashawn (sp?) was very helpful getting us booked when the online options were clearly not all that was available. Got us a better room, and for less. 3-night stay/early August. Lon was super helpful when we checked in/out, answering all our questions with a great attitude. Room was clean, no plumbing problems and had amenities we did not expect -... More

Pros: Room was clean Immediate hot water Nice shower Furniture was nice and matched Service was friendly Was allowed an early check in Safe fees easily removed Cons: Bed was ancient and "springy" Micro-fridge fees are simply petty- if my $1.50 is that important to the hotel, then raise your rate by a buck or two. Don't make me feel... More

I booked 2 non-smoking rooms for me and 7 other girlfriends from online website. There is a sign saying that there is discount for AAA members. I mentioned about my AAA membership to the front desk, she said that they already charged my card, so she can't adjust the price anymore. Both of the rooms we booked were obviously not... More

Hello Friska K., Thank you for your feedback. This gives me an opportunity to clarify the reservation process for our property. If you booked online with ChoiceHotels.com or over the phone at our location, your credit card would be used to only reserve the room and we would have access to the rate and can give you the AAA discount,...

Pictures online are very misleading! Rooms are old and looked dirty to me. Not even a hair dryer in the room. Noisy and definitely NOT worth $90.00. Pool looked dirty too although I did not use it. No restaurant within walking distance,

I have a son in Lakeside, so the location is super conveninent, room was as expexcted for the price. Staff was friendly and helpful. No in room coffee maker. Clean room with nothing unpleasant. Parking lot is a little on the cramped side.

The room itself was OK. The TV remote only worked after several tries each time we tried to use it and the batteries were taped in. My biggest problems were with the hidden charges which appeared on my bill when I went to check out. There was a charge for use of the refrigerator/microwave that were in the room. There... More

We stayed here because of its proximity to San Diego and its budget price. We were pleasantly surprised! It was very clean and the staff was very nice, accomodating, and helpful! If you're looking for a low-price place to stay that is close to San Diego, stay here!

I was concerned about staying at a non-franchise hotel, but it turned out to be alright. I saved a few bucks by not going to a franchised hotel and was surprised that the rooms were fine. It was clean and I had a good night's rest. I needed extra pillows and a hair dryer, so the office clerk brought them... More
