I stayed at this "hotel", a term that really does not fit this place in any way, last month. I was on business, my HR manager booked the room solely based upon their website and the professional staged photos. Imagine my utter shock when I arrived and found the place was really truly disgusting. It is a place that rents... More

This very clean, very basic motel is very good inexpensive motel with big time hotel extras. The only setback are their paper thin party walls, the other rooms noise transmit right through. Except for that this motel takes pride in its product.

how do you spell BUDGET … this is the epitome of a budget hotel … the bathroom is clean; the towels could be a little softer, they are rough as hell; bring your own soap and shampoo, and I don't have to go in detail about it; plenty of warm water … mattress is firm; beddings are overwhelmingly chlorinated, could...

I have stayed at this place in the past many times. Former management team of Matthew and Teresa made staying there a pleasure, Teresa remembered my name and Matthew was always professional. So when I had to come to San Diego on military business, I naturally thought about staying there again. I went into the "hotel" and to my shock,... More

Stayed here for more than a week and can't complain much. Yes the air conditioning is loud and old (like no thermostat old) the breakfast is fairly poor the TV is old too but also the stuff was friendly and my room was cleaned every day. There are a lot of restaurants nearby (I mean really plenty) and there is... More

I am so thankful I only stayed there for a few hours. It smelled horrible. It was more like a cheap motel. There were cigarette butts everywhere. There were cigarette burns in the non-smoking room. The room was filthy. The mattresses may have bed bugs. We had to disinfect what we brought home after possible bed bug transfer. It was... More

The room was old and smelly. It made me nervous to even walk on the carpeted floor. The kitchenette had nothing in it. When I asked about this they said people kept stealing the pots so they decided to not have any (which really doesn't do much for people traveling who don't usually carry this around). I suggested they use... More

This hotel was a nightmare. And it led to an even worse situation for me that never should have happened! I'd stayed in Palm Springs for a conference and stayed an extra day to go to Magic Mountain. My flight left from San Diego, so I decided it was best to stay in the same city and drove the 2... More
