Way too noisy (right next to the freeway), water pressure was terrible and the water would run VERY hot then VERY cold. Would NOT stay here again. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was actually quite good, with plenty of selections to choose from.

Stayed here for 5 days while visiting family in the area. Was very pleased. Clean and well kept. Security of guests and the property seemed to be of high priority for the hotel staff. The breakfast was exceptional. Not knowing the area - we booked this hotel based on price, previous reviews, and the proximity to our family. Would definitely...

Booked the hotel during July 4th weekend because it was relatively close to Sea World. Paid double the normal rate because of the holiday weekend as usual. Just needed a place to stay the night and was cheaper than surrounding hotels. Room was clean, staff was friendly at check in. No complaints and would stay again in the future.

My family and I had the misfortune of spending the night in this dump of a hotel. I had made my reservation 2 days prior, unfortunately i did not pay close attention to the fine print that my reservation could not be cancelled within 48 hours. I still gave it a shot 42 hours before check in and was told...

San Diego is a beautiful city and the hotel was good. It was nice to have a balcony. However, the motel overlooks the freeway making it hard for my husband to get a good night's sleep. I recommend a 1st floor room.

We have been staying at this particular motel for over 20 years. It's convenient to easy arrivals and departures, restaurants, and convenience stores. Shopping malls are all within easy walking distance. It's a good value for the price and has become our home away from home when visiting El Cajon, CA.
