Clean and quiet hotel.
Staff was friendly. beds and pillows were comfortable. There are no frills here, just a good basic hotel. Breakfast was fine and simple. The only drawback was that the person at the front desk was responsible for stocking breakfast food as well as front desk. Food was always running low as she was expected to do several jobs. All else was just fine.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

We stayed here for two nights while visiting the San Diego area. Rooms were reasonably priced, clean and comfortable with a friendly staff and plenty of free parking. Not very noisy so that covers most all my major requirements. It did have a continental breakfast, but was not a good one. The entryway we thought was confusing, and the laundry machine they had was nothing I would use, and not sure it even worked. But my focus is always cleanliness, comfort, and price and this place did have that under control. I thought the write-up reviews I had read said the trolley was nearby this Super 8, but it's not that close, so we ended up driving ourselves around San Diego. Access to trolleys was a a major reason I booked here. Oh well, all went fine.

My first impression of this hotel was very good as Katie did everything she could to get us a early check-in room. Not only did she accomplish that but the room was a preferred corner room which was clean and extra quiet. A/c worked great, bathroom was clean , tv and fridge worked well. Other than it being an older establishment I really have nothing bad to say about this place. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Definitely try to get a corner room near the back as they are quieter....

We had a nice King corner room upstairs that was quiet and clean. We had a great experience with Max the fellow at the front desk. He was really helpful and knowledgable. Our room was big and clean with a comfortable bed. We have no complaints and would stay here again.
