We stayed here because we were participating in the early morning Strawberry Festival Run which was only a five minute drive away. Super great deal from expedia, even the manager mentioned that our advance purchase saved us nearly $100. Our room was 103 & our friends room 102 faced the parking lot and were downstairs. The AC worked great, well... More

As a budget traveler who doesn't want to sleep with bed bugs, Vista Inn was the answer to my problems. The Inn is the right combination of price, amenities, and cleanliness. It's not a Hilton, but you also aren't paying a Hilton price. My room was clean, comfortable, and very quiet. That's all I need. Needless to say, I got... More

I was concerned that since the hotel is close to the freeway I wouldnt sleep well but in the room there is no... More

Stayed here on a visit to San Dieo a couple of months ago. The couple who run the hotel made it super easy for me to book a same-day room. The bed was comfortable, the sheets were clean, and the room was larger than I expected. Free coffee, too. In the morning while I was waiting for a friend to... More

I was in town for a short time and had to find a quick place to stay for the night. I saw this place perched in the hill as I driving through the highway and decided to give it a shot. Ive been to a few Motel 8s with the average experience and wanted to try something different hoping for... More

This place is great if you simply need a place to stay for the night. The motel is right next to the highway so there is some noise, however, considering the location, the rooms are pretty quiet. It's also close to the Vista Courthouse and within walking distance of both Coco's and Denny's. The staff were friendly and helpful, and... More

Awful. Do not book your stay here! Be warn. Bad location, small room. The sheet has holes in them, only get 2 towels. As for the rug, better keep your socks on. Don't be fool by the pictures like me. Stay away from this place and u will be much happier.
