          Pretty ordinary Econo Lodge in the outskirts of San Diego. For the price we paid is what exactly what we expected. Friendly service and decent breakfast. It's conveniently located by the I-8. Gas station and taco place next door.

          I had exactly the same experience and of course the manager tries to blame his guests instead of taking ownership for his terrible "mangerial" skills. Have you tried the Best Western very close by? I went to stay with them when this Econo lodge cancelled my room and then tried to charge me extra for exactly the same room they had cancelled and they were AMAZING!!! It cost more than it would have to stay at the Econo lodge - but it was well worth money. Does anyone have other recommendations for hotels in the area?

          Does the manager not think that with the preponderance of awful reviews about his hotel - rather than calling guests "unethical" because they used the card they wanted to use to book the room - a card that was accepted for the purposes of guarantee, and was perfectly valid but not the card the guest wanted to use to pay for the room - he should maybe take ownership of his abysmal management skills - resign his position and perhaps try working as a cashier at walmart instead? Or does he accept that he has lied more than once about his hotel (for example - lying and saying that if there is a problem - they call the guest (see other reviews) - they absolutely do not - even if a guest is coming 400 miles to stay at the hotel.)
