This is my first time here and I was shock how small the room is and that it has no pool. I found out after checking in. Don't come here for the price you can get somewhere with a pool and a room you can love around in. Really this is a very small room..

I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed with our hotel not having a pool. We closed down our pool area last year, since it did not meet the expectations of our valued guest. While we cannot be responsible for unauthorized websites, we have been vigilant to the extent possible to remove any reference to our hotel having a pool.... More

Hotels in this area can get expensive and many of them have hidden costs such as expensive resort and parking fees. Not the case with this Red Roof Inn. It is conveniently located to the conference I was attending at Paradise Resort and also close to Seaworld. Very easy to get to from the San Diego Airport. Rooms have been... More

The costumer service was outstanding. Ana, breakfast attendant, was cheerful each morning and very friendly. I went with a group of 30 children and 7 adults and although the rooms were small, it was manageable. The hotel staff voluntarily gave each child a gift bag for their ability to behave themselves while at the hotel. The rooms were clean and... More
