I have traveled all over the world and I have never been to such a sleeze bag hotel as this totally disgusting, gross, filthy, hotel. Toilet seat was leaning against wall. Don't walk barefoot for there is nothing but slimy greasy carpet and tile floors. What was even worse was seeing all the Prostitutes coming and going. I really felt... More

Room was very dirty. Sheets had existing stains on them they smelled clean though. There is 2 strip clubs on the block (One directly across the street) Check in staff was rude when we checked out they were a little nicer. They charge you $100 deposit and a $2 utility charge at check in it was $75 a night. They... More

After reading the reviews, I was pleasantly surprised:) Alberto was very friendly, the room I had for four days was spotless, the bed was great, the pool and hot tub were nice, the location was perfect. Yes, it is an older building, but for $40/night in San Diego so close to the beaches and Sea World...I had a great time... More

This hotel is what I already expected, with the price of $40 per night, cannot really argue. Though I don't like how they have the "energy fee" charge of $4, I mean you might as well include that with the rate. The room was alright, again, I didn't expect much. However, the towels are REALLY rough, it's like I'm rubbing... More

The front desk clerk Roberto was incredibly rude and very unhelpful in explaining a $100 deposit I was not aware of. Towels were stained and smelled, bathroom counter was visibly dirty. Find somewhere else to stay.

Tried to get an early check at 1230, was told not possible and that I had to come back at 3. There were 2 cars in the parking lot which didn't make any sense. Front desk clerk was rude, beds lumpy, floors unstable. Fridge and microwave were unplugged, batteries dead in remote, AC grill hanging off. Went to get coffee... More

Bed is hard as a rock, towels are dirty. Old dirty building. I had do not disturb sign on and maintance still came in. However much better to stay in this area than hotel circle if you are going to SeaWorld or Mission Beach, but other hotels in area are nicer and charge the same.

Was told the hotel had 24 hour shuttle service to airport. Not true, had to call taxi. the hotel is old, carpet stained, clean for what they... More

There is a small room were you can have some nice Orange Juice and some Coffee with pastries. But all in one the everything is a little old and the staff for my experience unfriendly,... More
