I called to reserve a room for a meeting two months away. I had to cancel the reservation more than a month before the trip was to occur. I called to cancel and they wrote a cancel note to the manager but I could not get cancelation number. Two weeks later I called again to say I never got the... More

Location as to the Gas Lamp district/Horton Plaza Mall about 6 blocks down hill, cab runs you about $5. each way. We used our AAA card and got a Fabulous Rate, on our room. We were shocked! the rooms are small but all you need is there, nice big TV, micro, fridge, nice bathroom and comfy full size bed (perfect... More

Location says they are closer than they actually are, It is really about 8-9 BIG blocks away. Parking is horrible. Well like the heading says if you want to sleep with cockroaches this is the one! We walk in the room to look to the side to turn on the light and there they are by the sink and by... More

Me and my family stayed at the motel for a few days and had a great time and experience there. The location was close to all amenities and was close to the downtown core and it's attractions. The rooms were very nice and comfy, and we found them to be very clean. The service was friendly and hospitable and we... More

This hotel was just down the street from a friend's place which is why I chose it, and right off the freeway. It was quiet (for a city hotel) and the rooms and outside areas were very clean. The room was small but the beds were comfortable and the hotel staff very accommodating. The parking was very tight, but there... More

A pleasant surprise. This property is so convenient to convention center and downtown. Easy access to 5 fwy, restaurants and Ocean attractions. The staff is so helpful. One of the few Inns that have their own onsite free parking close to your room.

Myself and two other friends stayed here for three nights. One of my friends had big red welt looking spots all over his back, chest, arms, legs, and face! We first thought he had an allergic reaction to something he ate, until a couple of days later I had the same thing. We slept in different beds so the whole... More

We decided to take a last minute road trip, and also found this motel at the last minute. The price was right for $90 in SD on a holiday weekend. That should have been my first clue. We arrived in the middle of the night and checked in fine...that was the only good thing. Once in the room we found... More

Typical motel - they are generally not the best hotels in the world but are not claiming to be! I did not see any bugs and our air con worked fine. Did have problems with the safe and hairdryer but they said we could change rooms if we wanted. We had internet in our room and cereal/croissants for breakfast. Our... More

To give you an idea of how BAD it is, while I was checking in 2 people came to the office and gave their keys back and said they couldn't stay there! I should have followed their lead! I'm pretty adventurous, so I checked-in anyway. One positive was that the manager was very nice. The hotel is sketchy to begin... More
