On our first day here the owner's daughter knocked at the door and insisted a rough looking crew had to invade our privacy to take all of the furniture out for the "remodeling". They removed all but the beds, lamp, and chairs. We had to call to ask for a table to stick the tv on and we NEVER got... More

Amenities show desk and closet. Both are false.

We searched many hotels and this Hotel was by far the most affordable. The rooms Are Newly remodeled, Clean, Spacious, and Very Comfortable. Conveniently located near the mall parks and restaurants. Staff was VERY Friendly. We will definitely visit again.

The accommodations were decent and the location is very convenient to the highway and ultimately the city. Of the available options in the immediate area, this is probably better than average. I felt the pricing was a bit high but that was probably due to the July 4th holiday. I would consider staying here again, but I'd look around for... More

Stayed on 7/3. Booked a king bed room. Got a room which was obviously unfinished from remodeling. No table or chair. Phone was on the floor. Refrigerator was leaking water all over the floor. Door which separated adjoining room was missing, so never too sure if the neighbors could enter our room at anytime. Just basically got a bed (a... More

We were very pleased with our stay, even thou there was a lot of construction going on due to the hotel being newly remodeled. the rooms were great for the price. This hotel is going to be very nice once it is completed and we will come stay again.

Our king bed room was clean and completely remodeled. Comfortable bed, hot water, A/C cold. The location is ideal for nearby sites like Ocean Beach. Old town, Sea World, La Jolla. Easy freeway access and many restaurants to choose from. Quiet at night. No complaints.
