The hotel location was nice & quiet. The hotel was a little run down & old but it was ok. The front desk was nice & helpful. The kitchenette was great especially with 3 hungry boys! The bathroom was small & the free breakfast wasn't the greatest! I thought I paid a lil too much for what it was worth..

This hotel is average. The staff is great! The location is very good. Due to the location it can be VERY loud. This is an OLD hotel that has fine beds, a nice pool area & free parking. So, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for!

Thank you for your review Carolyn. We appreciate your comments and will do our best to improve on what we can. My staff and I hope you found us to be a value. The community has a variance of noise.

I enjoy staying here as I travel socially on a bicycle. This motel is centrally located to all my favorite places. Never need a car; walking distance to the best restaurants in the Marina area. My room is always clean with plenty of pillows and a pleasant staff. Small pool but warm.

We were disappointed when we arrived at the Motel as it did not quite live up to the hype on the website. Nothing bad about the place, just average and the rooms looked quite dated. Staff were friendly, pool nice breakfast good and excellent location. The only negative was/is the noise insulation between rooms. We stayed two nights and heard... More

Although the staff was nice to us, the place was less than mediocre. We found dirty pillow cases and sheets with hairs. The bathroom sink releases foul odor. Equipment inside the room were dusty. Carpet was dirty.

Always stay here due to the location. Great for sailing regattas at nearby San Diego Yacht Club. The staff are friendly and hotel layout is very convenient. In fact we have found the location within walking distance to many restaurants.

This was a nice place to sleep, clean room and bath, cool a/c, great cable. My room was right next to custodial and maintenance though so there was a lot of doors slamming early morning. Great continental breakfast in the lobby, hot coffee, toast, muffins, yogurt, oatmeal. Plus this is right next to a fish market where friends told me... More

It earned one star because the location is very close to airport but not too close to get jet noise. When we walked into the room that was on the first floor, real bad moldy smell welcomed us. The whole place is wore out. It comes with breakfast, served bakeries, apples and orange. The receptionist refused to give me receipt... More
