The hotel is really close to the airport and close to sea world and other attractions. The value was great, definitely worth the money. If you are looking for the economic staying with nice service, I would recommend vagabond inn. Btw, the hotel staff, Aarti was really helpful and nice for helping during my stay. Thumb up!!

I'm a traveling superintendent, this hotel is always clean, very reasonably priced and centrally located. Check in or out anytime today or night. I will continue to stay here every time I come through San Diego.

Avoid this ghetto hotel at all costs. Front desk is unwelcoming and rude. Rooms are old and ugly!! Questionable undesirable characters hanging out outside at all hours. I will never stay again. They just don't swipe credit cards but make copies of your CC number too. This place is really geared for the undesirables and street vermin.
