I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to San Diego if you want to be in the heart of San Diego. You're just minutes from Downtown, Old Town, Sea World (watched the fireworks every night from the hotel), San Diego Zoo, beaches, shopping malls, Coronado Island, night life, all kinds of eateries, and the Tijuana border is within...

An older hotel, but for the price it was good..I liked how parking lot was away from main entrance. Felt safe. Watched fireworks from Sea World from our balcony. Located close to fast food, grocery stores & other restaurants. Easy to get to from freeway. I would stay here again.

I gave this hotel a four rating because I am judging based on the two star rating. It was a good location, room was comfortable and clean and the staff was helpful and accommodating. We did use the pool and spa and both were great. There is a gentlemens club across the street but I took no notice of it... More

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...
