3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

we have stayed here before and it is a busy place, right behind a mcdonalds.
grab a parking spot quick. motorcycles everywhere for a rally, noisy, and people everywhere, even half the night, but the room was fine, no one bothered us, but i was concerned,
front desk had 4 people in the small office, checking people in, so it was in and out quick.
we would stay there again, for 1 night, as it is near the folks we were visiting.

We have stayed at this motel 6 many times over the past twenty years. Unfortunately like so many Motel 6 properties it caters for a growing population of families that seem to live there full time. It has become very shabby, noisey and over priced.
However for the traveller it is very easy to find, a very short walk to the San Diego tram/light railway system that quickly whisks you into the centre of town or indeed Mexico (not recommended). Despite the drawbacks, I guess we will continue to use the property.

Yes the area might be a tad scary.....but room big n bright, clean and although beds not exactly firm....had a good nights sleep.
VERY dog friendly with "poop area" out back complete with baggies and disposal.
Vending and laundry facilities.
We found gates locked at night and regular security who were ticketing people not parked correctly etc.
Stayed in 136 on far side with 2 dogs. Train ran close, but finished at midnight.
Seniors discount. WIFI worked well for $2.99 per day.
Girls at front desk were so very helpful with room selection and restaurant choices. (The Pancake House the street is AMAZING.
We were stuck waiting for our Mexican Auto Insurance to come through. Front desk staff VERY diligent in watching and getting faxed information to us.
Many thanks. Geeat Stay

Room Tip: If you have pet....we liked 136

I wish the front desk women would have patched me through to 9-1-1 as I had asked her to so that I may report two gentlemen drinking, smoking marijuana and crack cocaine while speaking loudly right in front of my room. Upon the first call to desk she sent security whom when the crack heads saw coming ran. Within 30 minutes the people were back in another location I could see them but I did hear them. I tried dialing 911 but instead the phone went to the front desk where the women said if you see them again give us a call. NOT A SAFE PLACE!!

I suggest not to go to this motel because despite of the good condition the room was really stinky. I guess the night before we came someone with 1 or more dogs was sleeping in the same room. They didnt allow us to leave the luggages in the lobby even if 1 of the receptionist told us that they normally allow that. Never again!!

This waa conveniently located off the interstate 5, minutes drive from most
San Diego attractions. The hotel waa clean and also felt safe since it was partially gated. The staff was super friendly and quick to check in. Theres even a Dennys and local pancake house nearby.

This Motel 6 property was a great stay for a recent trip to San Diego. With great proximity to redline (train) and the 5 freeway it was an affordable option within 15 minutes of downtown. Our room was very clean and quiet. Not too sure what some folks were complaining about. We felt safe in this neighborhood and even walked across the street to Emma's Pancake house for some great breakfast food. We'd stay here again for an affordable option when you knew you wouldn't be in the room very much.
