We travel a lot between Ensenada and US, and always call ahead to stay at the Relax Inn. The staff is super friendly, and there is a Denneys across the parking lot, making breakfast nice and easy. They also have microwave and frig in room which is handy when we stay a few days or longer. It is close to... More

This motel does not serve breakfast, but there is a Denny's that uses essentially the same parking lot. It did not have a coffee maker as described in the booking.com description, so I asked the guy at the desk.

We found this on a Friday night at a Monday night rate, couldn't beat the price!! The room has nice fridge, microwave and the bed was good. I'd recommend it to anyone who's looking for a Ace to say on a budget, good location right off the 8 and in between La Mesa and El Cajon.

It's off the freeway but sketchy area. Ok for a last minutes stay, there is a Denny's located in same parking lot. The bedlinen didn't seem clean or fresh, almost if it had been used before arrival. They need to update TV and also Furniture.

This place is a mmmm basic as it gets and pretty over priced considering your at least 20-30 minutes from San Diego. The room had an odor that we couldn't really place other than bad. The bathroom was very small for a 2 bed room and they literally give you 2 towels for a 4 person room. I mean really!?... More

It was close to food and freeway. Will most likely come back. Would recommend to others. May need to update tvs and give more towells if more than one person is staying in the room. Orher than that overall good.

Non smoking room smelled just like smoke along with burn holes in the comforter. Only one outlet worked and no ac, probably due to the fact that it was taped together. There is no free breakfast as well as the fridge and microwave did not work, when brought to staff attntion they argued about it
