We had no towels and the room smelled like urine. One of the twin beds were lop sided. When I woke up the next morning, my back was aching. When we checked out, management refused to give me back photocopies of our driver license information. They stated that it was city policy and they will destroy our personal information after...

I'm scratching my head at the glowing comments about this motel. I stayed here for one night in March 2010. I've stayed in plenty of Motel 6 locations and this is the worst room that I've had. The bathroom tile was pretty dirty. It looks as if this was designed to be a wheelchair accessible room (see the bathroom pictures).... More

This prpoerty is a great value. Close to all San Diego attractions. Property is well maintained, rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff (front desk, house keeping, manager) is great - friendly and helpful. Very safe and secure environment.

i agree with the other reviewers- the rates at this motel are much lower than similar chain motels located more centrally in san diego. it's worth the low rate to drive a little farther to access san diego sites. it's also well located for outdoor pursuits/hiking at mission trails park, laguna mountains, etc. their rates on weekends are especially low...

This was great news for me....lower prices and still close enough to all the sights and attractions. Yes, its a six - ten min. dive further that staying at the Hotel Circle hotels but the savings gave us more $ to spend on the trips activities. This hotel, like all Motel 6 and other budget hotels, was not fancy (and... More

I was staying in room 172 when I awoke to a few big welts on my left hand and one welt on my collar bone. My hand was bright red and I went to the bathroom thinking about how years ago we had a sofa given and endured a huge bed bug infestation. Which in the end cost a small... More

We drove in from Phoenix and wanted to stop just short of San Diego. It was just a place to stay for one night, and it worked for us. Beware of rooms facing the interstate - they can be noisy. ~~~ I don't understand previous reviewers who say that this motel was "not bad" and "good" for the price, tell... More

Great solution to pricey, unavailable San Diego hotels. This hotel is surprisingly close to San Diego attractions, Target, Costco and other shopping malls. I rented two rooms for three nights. Rooms were well maintained, bathrooms with tubs in fine working condition!, AC worked fine, swimming pool water was clean and clear. Attendtion is paid to landscaping, good morning coffee, and...
