Vista Inn is very close to our children's home, and the price was reasonable. The beds and pillows were hard! Management was nice and helpful. One of the guests let me know that adult movies are free, you just have to ask at the front desk, but they don't volunteer that... Clientele ranged from people stopping for the night to... More

The room was "non-smoking", but still reeked of cigarette smoke the entire time I was there, which was 4 nights. The bed was okay. The shower was okay. If you ask, they won't bother to clean your room during your stay, and that's what I do as I don't need a newly made-up room every day. For the price, this... More

Room was filthy. Service was awful, lady at front was rude. Manager called several times after turning key in to see if we took blankets and pillows from room. In which, we didn't. It took about two weeks to receive deposit refund back. Please trust me this motel was awful.

Cynthia called us a couple of weeks later and threatened to write a bad review if we did not refund the security deposit. We refunded the... More

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

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
