My first trip to San Diego and was so please about the location of most attractions where this hotel is at. I enjoy the free WiFi as a extra bonus and with a family that needed a place to be close to downtown and beaches I was glad that I chose this spot. I do admit that there are planes... More

You can hear so bad the planes landind or taking off. The employees are just so cold and you feel that it annoys them if you need some informations and ask questions. Even to find the laundry area. It is not located in a beautiful area. Try something else if you can.

This motel 6 is good and is at a great location. Service was great as well. There is a mini refrigerator in the room. Plenty of room. There is a parking lot which is convenient. It is right by the airport and like all the other reviews, the only complain would be the airplane noises, but that is expected if... More

Checked in with 4 people, not enough towels in room. Asked the housekeeper for three more, and she went to get some, although there were piles on her cart. She brought two. When asked for the third, she said we needed to wait another ten minutes. Also, when we left the room to sightsee, we put our suitcase on the... More

I stayed at this location because it was very close to the airport and I had an early flight back home. I found that this facility was located just where I wanted it to be. The room offered the usual things, a TV, tub/shower, and the basics, however, the floors had no carpets, just laminate floors. This was all right,... More

Staff were friendly and efficient. Room was basic but clean, light sleepers beware under flight path and near train line but minimal night flights and trains, we barely even noticed them. No microwave or coffee pot but a fridge in room. Room was cleaned well each day with new towels.

Stayed here again on May 7, 2014. It was nice to see that they're done with there room renovation and it continues to be a convenient overnight airport motel. However, the morning coffee they served was the worst I ever experienced (colored water). Mentioned the bad coffee to the front desk attendant and her response was that she drinks energy... More

Stayed for one night for a quick in and out trip for a show at the Casbah. Very convenient for airport transportation and easy walking distance to the Casbah and Little Italy. Rooms are about what you expect given the price but generally clean but lacking standard amenities. For instance, had to ask the front desk for shampoo and hair... More
