We stayed here for 5 nights from 1/14/15-1/19/15. Motel is not ocean front but is in very close walking distance. We had a room on the 2nd floor (room 31). Room overall was clean as was bathroom. Big shower. Not a lot of counter space in bathroom. Our room had a table and 2 chairs along with 2 double beds.... More

The hotel was located in a great area, but some lights didn't work. The toilet was wobbly. An outlet didn't work. The continental breakfast was coffee and packaged danish. The parking lot was used as a public pathway by people leaving the beach.

I was pleasantly surprised by room. I was staying here because I wanted to be close to the beach as an alternative to the hotel that was recommended by a conference that I was attending for 4 days in the area. I found this hotel online, and it met my budget. The room was nicely decorated, comfortable bed, and a... More

I did a quick stay here for just one night. The room was rather dated and they do charge for wifi. There was coffee/juice and doughnuts for breakfast. While it is a very basic hotel the price and location more than make up for the condition of the room. Try to go for a renovated room and one that is... More

I wanted a hotel by the beach. This place is literally two minutes from the beach. The front desk lady was nice and tried to accommodate us as best as she could. We were very early for Check in. Rooms are nice. (A little dirty in the bathroom) The one we stayed at had some issues like the back of... More

I have stayed here on several trips to San Diego. Never had any issues. Those people at the front desk always cheerful and helpful. It's a 2 minute walk out of your hotel room to the beach. It's a great place to stay since you don't have to find parking near the beach. It's not a ritzy place at all.... More

Hotel staff was rude, did not clean room, room was not as advertised, paid a lot and got cheated, do not stay here, parking was very limited had to park on the street, was totally not satisfied for paying 175.00 per night, would not consider the place ever.

We have been here a week now and its not a place we will come back too. It is a nice room with good location. But all the little things they don't seem to notice or care about. The shower door only covers half of the shower so the floor is soaked after each shower. They don't restock the basics... More
