REALLY can't complain because "airport" is right in the name of the motel, and yet somehow the plane noise is extra loud. Feels like your bed is on a landing strip. That said, location is convenient, room was clean, guy at front desk was nice, and at that price, you can't go wrong. Like I said, can't complain about plane... More

Stayed here because they honored the coupon rate for 2 nights. Have not stayed in a Motel 6 for about 20 years. Room was large and very clean. King size bed was comfortable. No toiletries or hair dryer but they are available from the office. Staff very friendly. Yes, it is very loud from landing aircraft but that didn't bother... More

Spent two nights here at end of October. In all honesty, it wasn't bad at all, Clean rooms and bathroom, comfortable bed. But be warned, NOISY!! It is right under the flight path to San Diego Airport; Seriously, the planes pass less than 200 feet overhead while on final approach to the airport. If you are a light sleeper, then... More

PROs: Wendy at the front desk was very nice and helpful. Cool AC. Relatively clean. Affordable rate. Great for access to airport and other attractions. CONs: Loud group of younger kids were hanging outside of the front office. No clock. The remote to the TV didn't work. Relatively clean but bedding was a bit beat up and toilet wasn't cleaned...

We stayed 3 nights. It was a last minute vacation plan so I did not have other choice than this hotel. They don't offer breakfast(only coffee)Not too bad location; but it gets noisy. The motel is approximately 4 miles from San Diego Zoo, Sea World and Balboa Park.I did not have a bad experience because we only use the room... More

We stayed 5 nights and it was a last resort choice because our reservations somewhere else were lost. It was not as bad as we thought it would be, the rooms were clean & did not smell as other reviews have said, it was in a convienant spot close to everything. Since it is close to the airport you'll see... More

We stayed here at the beginning of July and were quite surprised that we got such a good deal for a 3 night stay, especially over the July long weekend. Room was basic but it was perfect for us. If you are quite sensitive to noise than you'll want to avoid this hotel as it is right over the flight... More

I arrived to a lukewarm reception, as in, the flattest welcome ever. I was shocked to have to pay for a shuttle. The room was dark, and depressing. The bedding was stained, ripped and stale. There was no fitted sheet and the extra blankets I requested were disgusting and had holes in them. Not enough towels, lousy bar of soap... More

We ordered a queen bed and got 2 full size beds and gave us a handicap room. The A/C did not work, the bathroom faucets were labeled incorrect so hot was cold and cold was hot. Pay the extra to stay somewhere else!
