You can hear guest in other rooms when they are talking. other guests were up all night with people coming and going. You can hear knocking on your neighbors door like it is your own door. Poor...

This hotel exceeded our expectations for the room which was a king mini suite. The staff was exceptionally helpful in helping with directions and recommending restaurants. The pool area was pleasant and the general appearance outside was nicer than most Best Westerns.

I stayed two nights at this hotel. The room was clean, but moreover, the staff was very friendly. The room faces away from traffic, so I didn't hear any cars or any other guests. Over all, I would stay there again for the value and the quietness.

We stayed here for 3 days while visiting family nearby. While the hotel is an older, motel style property, it is well kept, clean, and comfortable. There is a small refrigerator in the room. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast and Wi-Fi are free. It is near San Diego State University, if that is your destination. It is about... More

We chose this motel for the weekend, as San Diego hotels are very expensive over Labor Day. We were very happy with our choice. We had a suite that was actually a small apartment (living room with efficient, small kitchen and small, square dining table, separate bedroom with two queen beds, and a nice bathroom area. Both rooms had a... More

extra charge for baby crib, even though I knew I chose to arrive but i think that any self-respecting hotel no additional charge. There was no fridge and kettle in the room, and it was not in order. Nice staff, reasonable food according to the price

This was a great hotel and we really enjoyed our stay. All of the staff was very friendly. They upgrade our room at no extra cost, we checked in an hour early and got a room immediately and even asked for a late check out and that was no problem. I would definitely stay here again if we were in... More

We did two nights here and found this to be a very nice hotel for the price. The property and rooms are clean and well kept. The bed and pillows were quite comfortable, better than expected. We had a problem with a stain on one of the bed sheets but the girl at the desk retrieved fresh sheets and came... More

Comfortable beds with a large flat screen tv. My room was very quiet. Very clean. Friendly efficient housekeeping staff. Nice selection for breakfast, however could have more of a variety of fresh fruit. Only apples and oranges. Excellent coffee and make your own Belgium waffle maker. Beautifully landscaped. Stop and smell all the beautiful roses. Great pool. Huge beautiful magnolia... More
