Very close to the airport and the price was very reasonable to stay over to catch and early flight. The front desk clerk we encountered at check-in should take some training in customer service. We arrived about 11 AM, early for check in and she let us know that there were no rooms available yet, when asked how long it... More

Having gotten stuck getting out on a flight during holiday rush, I chose this hotel as it offered good senior discounts and free shuttle from the airport. Ride to terminal early next morning cost $5.00 per person, but the pick up was timely. Older motel but clean and comfortable with free wifi and located such that an easy short walk... More

This hotel is very close to the airport.If you need to take an early flight or rest during a long trip it is good enough. Clean and confortable. Room service food is not very good but aceptable. Commercial or touristic áreas are also close to the hotel

Came out to San Diego for the Pats game and stayed at this hotel. Clean rooms and free parking. Planes fly very low over the hotel but the noise isn't bad with the windows shut and door closed. Within walking distance to the Midway and the ferries. It's about a mile walk to the USS Midway but definitely worth a... More

This motel is right by the airport? Aircraft come in low over the buildings up until quite late at night and from early in the morning. The pool was very dirty when we were there. They have an open plan storage, which, whilst modern is not that good. Rooms are OK. We stayed for 2 nights and really, that's about... More

Got out and planned a trip with the guys to head to a sporting event at Qualcomm Stadium and enjoy the night life down at the Gaslamp District. I found the motel by a coworker who came down to SD for vacation and said the place was close to all the places I wanted to go. I booked a room... More

It was my birthday, so my wife and i decided to stay in San Diego. The closest hotel to the Harbor was this location so we booked for a couple of days. The ad said the rooms were remodeled, so it was a good thing. Upon arrival, i met the desk attendant who was talking to one of her coworkers,... More

Wouldn't let us extend our stay. Its quite a walk to get food or good coffee. Snack machine always out of order. Friendly Staff. We noticed a Homeless guy sleeping undisturbed on the patio above the pool one day but He was polite and didn't bother anyone. Close to the Bay Attractions and worth the price considering you can count... More

Although the motel was very close to the airport, the noise could not be heard when the door was closed, and the flights weren't as often during the late night hours.. The motel is very convenient to get to all the tourist areas in San Diego. No charge for parking and having a refrigerator in the room was an added... More

I got stranded at the airport and stayed here one night. It was right choice. Very close to the airport and they had shuttle for a very reasonable price. The airport is next door so planes flight right above it. Can be noisy but in the room with ac on , can't hear much. Also not much of dining places... More
