Extremely small rooms! ! I've literally never stayed in a room so small (single queen) we chose this hotel because it is dog friendly, but there was barely enough room to fit our dog kennel (we have a large kennel that had to be kept under the desk because there was no floor space.) Also, our dog food was infested... More

We stayed for a couple of nights recently and I was pleasantly surprised. It was pretty quiet (except for hearing some footsteps overhead on the second night) and we did not hear any people walking outside or cars parking at all so we slept well. The staff seemed very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast attendant smiled and even asked how... More

The photos shown on this motels web site are WIDE angle... you can barely walk between the bed and the desk. Housekeeping gets a D- grade. Stayed at this hotel 4 days, trash never emptied, coffee pot never cleaned, bathtub had sand that was not washed out, no standards for bed making, or towel folding. Noisy! This motel has wall...

My sister & I stayed here in June for one night before moving on to the Holiday Inn across the road. The room was fine for one night - all we needed was a bed after a lot of travelling from Ireland! There was a good selection of TV channels to watch while relaxing and wifi. There was also a... More

The Red Roof Inn, situated charmingly adjacent to several car dealerships, is perfect if you’re a junkie or in hiding. If you’re trying to have fun in San Diego, you can save the effort of booking a room and find similar accommodations by sleeping in your rental car. As I walked into to my room, I realized that it was... More

Room was very, very small. A man by the name Mich checked us in and was very friendly. Once we got our luggage in the phone rang and it was Mitch. He asked me if everything was ok in the room and if we needed anything. I was so surprised on the customer service. I asked Mitch for more towels... More

Relatively clean hotel with very small room. Pool exists on site, but is not operational. All staff was very pleasant, helpful and polite. The breakfast is an added bonus, but tends to be quite congested as the room is small and the layout is extremely inefficient. There are a few tables inside and out on the balcony to eat at,... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. My only recommendation/complaint is concerning the breakfast room. The arrangement of the room is extremely non-user friendly. Also, Ana, the breakfast attendant, gets trapped in the corner by the rude people cramming into an already crowded room. Ana was wonderful at her job. Friendly and very patient. It really is a horrible set-up... More
