Need something close and convenient to airport, this place is but that's about all it has going for itself. Bed was very uncomfortable, tv didn't work, outside reeked of marijuana. Trust me pay a little extra for a nicer place. They only got 1 extra star b/c the girl at the front was very friendly.

I came to this Motel 6 location since I had a HORRIBLE stay at the Chula Vista location. After checking in with April at the front & getting settled in to our room everything was great! We went & had dinner & came back to watch a movie. Everything was perfect! However, when I got up around 2:30am to use... More

Our group of four ladies had two Queen beds. The room was large enough for all of our 'stuff.' It has plenty of electrical outlets - we brought an extension cord, because we each have a cell phone to charge, but it wasn't necessary. We had a fridge in our room. The motel is directly in the Flight Path and... More

I was on holidays from Ireland with my family in San Diego. We had booked in to stay in motel 6 for the night our plane landed and took of because the motel was so close to the airport. When we checked in the staff were alright I wouldn't call them friendly. The room was the worse. Bed sheets had... More

From the outset, this motel is just a standard American motel. The rooms are large enough, the shower hot and powerful, the bed suitably comfortable and the room decently appointed. Unless you're a deep sleeper like me, you may be kept awake by the VERY loud airplane and train noises literally just outside the hotel. The flight path is directly... More

For any budget traveller visiting San Diego, this motel is highly recommended. Clean and affordable with a comfortable bed. The staff are friendly too. Special mention goes to Juan who made us feel welcome. The motel is located within walking distance to the seafront, Little Italy and the trolley public transport.

The rooms are clean and spacious. No breakfast or food nearby. The staff are really friendly, helpful and patient. Just what a guest needs after a long travel. Bathroom amenities are basic. No big towels. No shampoo. No coffee or tea in rooms. A really decent size fridge in the room. Will i stay here again. Yes, I will.

Overall I was pleased with my stay. The only negative was the showerstall: black mold growing on the caulking. Having the cleaning staff use a mild solution of bleach/water would take care of it. There were places on the tile where the caulking needed replacement. Where is the maintenance man and management making sure this is kept from happening?

My husband and I decided to spend the weekend alone. The room was updated and nice although the bathroom needed a new tub and could've been a little cleaner with the walls and floors. The planes flew overhead throughout the day but stopped around 11pm. They started again at 6am - not too pleased. Other than that it was a... More
