“EXCELLENT We Will Be Back!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for 3 nights and I must say it was the best stay at a Red Roof we have ever had. the rooms were small but had everything we needed. The breakfast was basic but good enough to get us going in the morning. The best part would have to be the customer service. With the exception of Tim who seemed to have been having a bad day when he checked us in everyone else we dealt with were AMAZING! always willing to help and even gave us directions to a great breakfast place that was on food network. We will definitely be staying here again when we return In the summer. oh and they are very pet friendly and do not charge extra for them. they have a pet area as well and offer great tips on pet friendly beaches, parks .and restaurants.

My son and I stayed at this hotel prior to his presenting at a conference. The Internet worked well and he was able to review his information on his laptop. Because it was St. Patrick's Day, the man at reception advised us to go to the 3rd floor--very quiet. We were able to do laundry, travel to the Zoo Safari, Cornonado, and go kayaking in La Jolla--all the travel suggestions and directions were provided by courteous and knowledgeable reception staff. The location was excellent.

The room was clean, the shower water hot and plentiful, the maid service was terrific. If I were to travel to San Diego again, I would most definitely stay at the same location.

Room Tip: You should get a room on the side facing the car dealership--it is very quiet at night.

Nice clean place to stay! Ask for room with best internet, if that'd be important to you, as I heard some rooms have a better signal than others. It was a little challenge to get the bath water flowing: faucet had been replaced & had to get it just right to have water flow. But we got it going fine, and though I had arrived with a horrendous cold, when I departed, my cold was mostly history! Great place, with good value in this fairly pricey market. And don't forget to bring your pet! Oh -- if you're sensitive to saltless folks, look elsewhere: there are some flamboyant sorts who staff the front office at times.

It's a dog friendly place, and they don't charge you for your pet. I didn't travel with any pets, but still to a pet owner, you can't help but love these things.

Rooms were very new, and the sheets , bath towels and floor were all clear and in good condition. Asothers said, the rooms are small, but I stay in a city where rooms are small generally so that didn't bother me. The rooms have basically everything I need, ironing board, coffee maker, tv, free wifi, fridge, etc. The walls are thin, so you will hear tv and sounds coming from yr neighbouring room. I like the staff, they were friendly and always proactively ready to print driving instructions. It's really good value I think, about USD 60 per night with complimentary breakfast and parking.

The area within walking distance is mostly car dealerships, so don't stay here if you are not driving. If you drive, then the beach is less than 10 minutes away, and you can get to the airport and downtown in half hour or so. Feels generally like a safe area even if quiet.

San Diego is a pretty place, great for family vacations.

We stayed here in March and loved it. The rooms are small but the cleanliness & staff made it better. The rooms were renovated and everything looks very nice. The front desk staff was great with directions. Vanessa always had something new to sugest for us to try. Whenever we needed directions they were very helpful. It's a great placeto stay and the price is unbeatable I will be back to the Red Roof Inn next time I'm in San Diego !!

Thank you for mentioning the extra special service that Vanessa was able to provide during your stay. With so many things to do in San Diego, it's not easy to cover all the driving directions but we strive to do our best.

The Good; They have really cleaned this place up. It's now smoke free.
The Bad; Customer Focus. The desk rep at my initial arrival was polite, but not very accomadating. I got there about 11am and was told availability wasn't till 3pm (the latest time for room prep) and had to find something to do for the next 4 hours, only to get a room that was clearly not occupied the prior night that could have been made available early.
When questioning the practice I was offered a stream of excuses that included everything except what it would have taken to meet an early arrival's needs.
My Recomendation; When faced with an early arrival, focus on getting them a room as soon as possible rather than waiting till all the rest of the rooms are ready.

Spent two nights here with my family in August 2011.
Positive quality/price rate. Hotels tend to be very very expensive in San Diego so this was a good solution.
The negative aspect was the noise at night. There were people talking in front of our room in the middle of the night. We complained with the management and they were very kind in apologising.
At first we didn't know there was a breakfast room but on the second morning we discovered.
We were able to use a free computer in the lobby.
As a whole, not bad.
