My husband, daughter and I have stayed here multiple times in the past few weeks and have been extremely impressed. The rooms are nice and updated with very comfortable beds/bedding, flat screen tv, refrigerators and microwaves etc, continental breakfast, and amazing staff! Plus it's not in the heart of Escondido, so it has a nice peaceful feeling! I felt very... More

It was my first time and certainly won't be my last. Pretty good place and great customer service! I think her name was Sonia, but since we came in way earlier then the check-in time and my whole family was tired from the drive (from Sacramento) she was able to get us in. Although it wasn't the suite I booked... More

We stayed here twice in the last two weeks and were very happy with this motel. The rooms have been remodeled and are clean and comfortable. Management is friendly. Breakfast is very good. Location is great for Safari Park or other attractions in the area.

I came to this motel with no expectations but was pleasantly surprised. The rooms have been recently remodeled have have clean carpets, and the beds were great. The humble free breakfast was actually all that we needed to power us through our day at Safari Park, not far away. The staff was very pleasant and responsive, and got us a... More

For the price , the place is clean, comfortable room and bed. Pleasant staff and for free breakfast, the amount was sufficient and good. Neighborhood is pretty safe. This is our second time to stay in this place within the year. I would not hesitate to come back here again. This place is good to just sleep in.

We were in San Diego for the Safari Park. We spent the night at Motel Mediteran. The pool was not heated, but not a big deal. The clerk was friendly and helpful, the room (109) was a deal for $60, and it was quiet. Breakfast was as expected: cold cereal, juice, pastries, and waffles. Enough to get us started and... More

I spent a week at Motel Mediteran in October 2015, and I very much enjoyed my stay. I travel to San Diego regularly, and I typically stay at one of the usual business hotels. This time, following a friend’s recommendation, I made a different choice, and checked in at Motel Mediteran. Despite its unassuming curb appeal, I quickly connected with... More

Bobby our receptionist was very efficient and helpful with driving directions and upon check-in. During our 3 day stay everything went well and the owner/manager Sangita(Sonya) was especially friendly and knowledgeable and an engaging smile. The room(2 double beds) was recently remodeled with microwave, refrigerator, and flat screen t.v. The beds were very comfortable(supportive without being too firm or hard).... More

The rooms are small, but scrupulously clean. The beds are comfortable and the staff extremely helpful. The room was also very quiet. Great value for the money. The staff is very nice and very helpful. An excellent budget choice.

Where shall I start? Attempted to check in early; was told room wasn't ready- I can accept that...as it's near a family theme park and often people check out late. Finally, was told a room was ready early(1.5 hrs ahead of normal check in, that's it..), but that it'd be 15 dollars, payable in CASH. Furthermore, the deposit for the... More
