The office was locked when I checked in, had to go to a side window to check in and the attendant was rude and brusque in doing so. The property was run down, the continental breakfast was adequate, you get what you pay for.

First of, the reason we choose this was because of our wonderful experience in their San Diego Red Roof Inn.. But like what my headline says, they are not the same! The picture wherein you can see the rooms are like super old. Meaning, they are not updated, those looked new and fresh, but when you get there, the carpet...
