Ok, so you wanted cheap in San Diego, you found it! If you want to place to drop off your stuff, and/or sleep a few hours before returning to the Comic-Con, this is the place for you! The hotel is run by a cheerful Indian family, so the front office smells of a wonderful curry dish at all times. The... More

The old saying ''you get what you pay for'' may hold true here. I purposely booked this cheap room because all the other properties in town were way over-priced for my trip.

My boyfriend moved to San Diego recently and had to stay here due to lack of money between moving in somewhere else. He would have stayed elsewhere had he had more money at the time. The manager was sketchy to begin with, and accused my boyfriend of smoking in the room when he didn't. There was a sign that said... More

I would stay here again! There were many other Motels in this vicinity, but I chose Sun Harbor because it was $20.00 LESS THAN the others and that was $20.00 more to put into the gas tank! It is clean and it is no frills. The owner and his staff were so friendly and very happy to assist in the... More
