Place looks a bit sketchy. Looks more like a motel. Is it? I dunno. However, the king bed was really nice. The rooms were ok, pretty spacious. Complimentary continental breakfast STAY AWAY. Skip it. Front desk really nice. I'll stay somewhere else next time.

I am a local and had my close friends stay here. I was impressed with how friendly the staff were on the phone and in person. They went above and beyond to make my friends feel welcome. I think this is one of the best values in San Diego. I would recommend this property to anyone.

We stayed here for my mother's birthday, a two night girls getaway, and it was lovely. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, the grounds had beautiful plants everywhere, the continental breakfast was what you'd expect it to be, the coffee was decent. Upon check-in, I was provided with a Wi-Fi password but the network was unsecured so I... More

Stayed In December right after Christmas for the Holiday Bowl at Qualcomm Stadium. There were pros and cons associated with this room. Overall Review: There are two sections of this hotel. A more modern 80's/90's section and the older 1930's/40's motor lodge section. The more modern section is located directly in front of the main check in area and is... More

This hotel is an oasis in an industrial area, but it is incredibly conveniently located. We were right off both I-5 and I-8, a 10 minute drive from Mission Beach, Balboa Park, the airport, the harbor (USS Midway, etc.), and a 5 minute walk from Old Town. The room had everything we needed, including frig and microwave. The staff was... More
