“Good location, smelly room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

This hotel was in a great spot right near the trolley which got us to all the good sights in san diego which were only few stops away. The room though was very stuffy and had a wierd smell in it every time we came back in the evening. We had to leave the room door open to air out the place!! The tv was very outdated but still worked. The fridge didn't work and the reception guy was extremely rude to us about it but got it replaced only because we complained and argued with him as we just bought some milk etc.

I highly recommend to stay here. I am traveling from Mexico City and I found this hotel perfect. It is 1 min walk from a trolley station and very well located. The staff is veeery friendly, specially Pete, who went all the way in trying to help me with recommendations and tips and making sure we were having a pleasant stay.the facilities were absolutely clean and comfortable. I would come back always.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

The rooms are very reasonably priced, however had very dated and strange interiors. Our room had hand painted stars and swirls around the top... Clean. Wifi did not work very well, there were four of us in the room and no more than one person could use the wifi at a time, even then it was very slow. They did not have a license to provide breakfast even though it was advertised, we we were able to walk to the motel down the road and have breakfast there for free.

Overall, not terrible, and was ok for one nights stay.

Basic hotel, you pay for what you get. Our room was next to train tracks where freight trains ran all night. But, staff were friendly and location was great. We did not use the pool but it looked nice. No Laundry but laundromat round the corner.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the train tracks!

My daughter & I had a great trip to San Diego! The staff was very helpful & friendly. Micheline gave us great customer service & made us want to come back again. Pete was super knowledgeable about the area & directed us to an awesome restaurant nearby. This location is centrally located; we walked to Little Italy for dinner both days & there was lots of little shops to explore.

Right on the PCH and walkable to the mass transit system, Little Italy and very near the zoo, Balboa Park, Sea World and the airport. Free parking which is unbelievable. I could not get the WiFi to work in my room, however. That would be my only complaint.
