“Some good, some not so good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

This is a clean, well maintained hotel that is very affordable. The room was spacious and included a refrigerator and a microwave. Looked like everything in the room had been updated recently. Continental breakfast was included and they had plenty of everything. Location is just east of the 5 freeway. Easy to find and easy to get back on the freeway. Just a few minutes drive from Carlsbad and Legoland. About 1/2 hour from San Diego.

Minor problems included: a non-hdtv tv (lousy pictures). The window air conditioner was noisy.
Major problem: could not get wifi to work!

I stayed here for one night and can say is a very good alternative. The room I got was clean, and was very big. The only thing I found that wasn't good enough was the breakfast. is too basic Lots of carbs.

Room Tip: If they give you a choice, choose a room away from the road; otherwise, you could be hearing all the...

We stayed here four nights and loved it. The hotel is well positioned and the owners are a lovely couple waiting to help you out with anything you need. Rooms are super clean as the motel went through renovations 4 years back. Great place to stay for budget travellers.

This is a nice hotel for a decent price. There aren't a lot of rooms, which was a plus for us. The continental breakfast is adequate (what you would expect for free), however it's in a small room that only take a couple families to fill up. There is overflow seating outside. It's located near the freeway so you will probably hear some noise, but it didn't bother us. We stayed 3 nights and had no problems. Our room was clean and modern. It is not far from Legoland, probably within 10 minutes, and is also close to a couple of shopping centers. I would recommend this hotel for anyone on a budget who wants to stay at a middle of the road hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room as far away from the front of the hotel as possible if freeway noise bothers you.
