The hotel is not a beautiful resort but is comfortable, my room was very clean, the wifi is slow and the tv seems to be like the 90's tv's. If you are considering to went to San Diego and just stay 1/2 nights is perfect. Breakfast is free but is not good.

Got 2 rooms, 1 smelled like chemicals. The beds were hard and the carpets dingy. Both refrigerators worked and so did the air conditioners. The bathrooms were mostly clean but all the outlet covers in 1 room were broken, like someone used a power tool to put them on and tightened too much. The pool is tiny and there's a... More

The place seemed great on review we drove up and there was a gentlemans club across the street. Not what i expected to see. check in was a breeze. Our room was okay beds were clean and comfy. Overall a good stay. The one thing we disliked was hearing planes about every 40 min. That was the only negative overall... More

San Diego location OK. Room dark & dreary.. Décor was 1980 wall paper, carpet and paint. A major room renovation was needed. We requested a cot when reserving room. We called front desk & cot was delivered. . Now room became very small. We had a small path from door to bathroom. Door security was questionable. Elevator to second floor... More

I needed a place to stay one night as my daughter was scheduled to be at an overnight camp at Sea World. I knew that I would be getting in late and leaving early in the AM, so I wanted a place near the park that was inexpensive. What made this motel appealing was that there was no deposit required...

Wifi ok but dropped out every now & then (we were on top floor - level3). Didn't utilise the included breakfast as didnt notice the breakfast room until the 2nd morning; it is a tiny room opposite the checkin reception in an external building. Towels a but small and fairly thin. Bed comfy and lots of pillows which is great!

This place blocks web pages on WiFi. If you want to relax and stream movies or TV from your computer don't waste your time with this place. They claim free WiFi but they block sites so all you can really access is Craigslist and Facebook. Then when I tried to get a refund they told me that I cannot have... More

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
