“Nasty area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Near SeaWorld and the Sports Arena but set in a rather nasty industrial neighborhood.

Place is clean. Plenty of hot water, even a tub, but couldn't get it to hold water.

Sloooooow internet and also get charged an extra five bucks.

OK parking; some enclosed.

Advertised at $50 on Expedia but somehow managed to add in another $30 in fees and junk.

I was in San Diego to go to Sea World and this was literally less than 5 min away. When I was finding it I drove through an area with a lot of strip clubs and other "adult" places I've never seen anything like before but when I found the place it was next to a different highway. The rooms were nice, everything was very clean and nothing was broken. If your not looking for a hotel with lots of frills and just need a place to stay for your trip to Sea World I definitely recommend it.

I reserved this on Hotwire 2 Star. I guess I am used to Priceline 2 Stars. This motel was maybe a 1 Star. It is a motel that has room improve. Let me list a few reasons: 1. parking spots would not fit a normal vehicle 2. room NOT updated 3. live roach in bathroom 4. dirty bed spread 5. carpet dirty 6. fuzzy TV reception 7. old, old, very old cheap mattress. A very big disappointment

We were a bit intimidated by the neighborhood, but as a central place to be tourists in San Diego this is perfect. I have been a job coach to motel maids before and NEVER have I seen a better cleaned room! Comfortable beds. No amenities, but a Denny's across the parking lot. The motel hosts were helpful with directions and reassurance of the safety of their neighborhood. Very close to Sea World, Old Town and the San Diego LDS Temple. We would stay there again.

Primarily because my family and I were going to visit SeaWorld, this hotel was a pretty good deal for the cost. The room was spacious enough with a mini-fridge and a decent bathroom. The service was helpful and friendly.

The main issue that I had with rooms were that the walls seemed thin, so people passing by the room or in adjacent rooms were easily heard. However, noise did not end up being a major problem, so being aware is the most important part.

It was great having a mini-fridge in the room (no extra charge). We had 4 people staying and had to ask for extra towels, but they were happy to ablige. Another plus was the discount at the Denny's across the street.The only thing that was not so great was the TV picture quality.

I enjoyed my stay here. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. Housekeeping forgot to clean our room one day but nothing to get mad over. The handicap room is very accessible and the shower is a walk in so it is perfect. There was even a little fridge in the room .
