When I first found this property on Expedia, I looked amongst the rooms to choose from and thought I had found a killer deal for a great price, but the price was not worth dealing with the disrespectful attitude, arrogance, and narcissistic behavior , verbally aggressive, and treats the people staying at the hotel, including myself and my family members who were staying here from out of town as if he wishes they were not here at all. The manager lives here, and works here and is abusing authorative Power by using the guests fear of being kicked out or not getting their deposit back, against them by making you endure the foul treatment provided by the manager. I’ve seen and known some people who stayed in some pretty bad hotels, If you would like to receive better service, room service, and a good experience from the place you choose to stay, after I told my friends my experience they said I could’ve gotten all of those if I had stayed in a motel 6, other than being here. The room had broken outlets, burn holes in the sheets of a bed in a non smoking room, and the AC smells like it’s burning, alongside the holes in the screens of the windows. Hazardous environment and an even more toxic manager.

The two crackheads/methheads in room 105 right next two us in a room that unfortunately had a door in the wall so you could hear everything in either room had two dogs with them. The dogs were not the problem. They'd occasionally bark and whine and make dog noises, but the real problem was the guy yelling "shut up! Shut the $&*# up!" At them from 8pm to 4am solid. Then there was the smoking of cigarettes they were doing that crept under the door and set off the smoke detector in their room at 1am. Then there was the no less than four different randos coming into their room between 11pm and 3am. Loud doors, loud voices. Then there was the fact that when I finally broke down at 4am and went to my car to call the closed office to complain, there was no voice mail to leave a message. No one at the desk to handle things at night. My fiancé starts a brand new job at 7am. He has roughly one hour to try and get some sleep. Our room reeks of smoke. I will be pursuing a full refund. At some points I almost called the police. Fairly certain they were selling either drugs or a** all night. The roach on my laptop at 5am was just the cherry on top.

The room was so disgusting. The carpet was so dirty. The smell was overwhelming like a dirty wet dog. My card wasn’t working so I did half cash half card for the deposit, and the guy did not return my deposit. I called when I noticed the whole amount didn’t post to my card. He said he would mail me the cash… yeah right. He kept my $60 for himself I’m sure. Dishonest and disgusting.

My husband and I have been staying in this hotel once or twice a year for the last 15 years. In early September 2023, we had a room overlooking the parking lot/harbor slips. We stayed for three nights. The hotel has no air conditioning. The weekend was exceptionally hot so we had a fan in the room which was very dirty and loud. The couch and carpet in the entire unit was filthy and stunk like urine, beer and cigarettes. The living room had no lamp. We relied on the overhead, outdated, ceiling fixture over the dining table for light. The bedroom made you feel you were in prison. All walls and doors were stark white and not one piece of artwork on any wall. The bathroom was dirty and the shower/bathtub had black mold in the calking. The drawers and cabinets had spider webs in them. The hairdryer wall unit had broken off of the wall and was shoved in a drawer not reinstalled. There were no fire sprinklers or carbon monoxide alarm fixtures. There appeared to be one smoke alarm on the hall wall (not on the ceiling ?). Don’t know if it was working. We lived nearby in Carlsbad for years so we come back to this area often. We have seen a steady decline of this property over the last four or five years. We were disappointed to see just how far down it has slipped. We will not be returning. It was a total waste of our hard earned dollars. They charge a high rate for such a low quality room ……. hardly a “suite”.

Worst hotel ever, the whole room was not cleaned, it smelt like mold. There was blood on the wall, the door frames were ripped up. One worker took a picture of our card and made charges to our card. There were cockroaches and bugs. Do not book here.

I would give 10 stars if I could. This place is great don’t let these snobbish pretentious people deter you from staying here. Comfy beds and instead of a couch they have a second side bed which is also comfortable. Fridge/freezer, microwave, safe and flat screen tv, everything you need. I’ve stayed in worse casino hotels in Vegas. This place is like a cheap wine that hits way above its price point. We definitely recommend this place.

This was a nightmare, I should have read reviews 1st. The photos are VERY misleading. It was filthy, broken down and need of all kinds of repairs. We checked in and back out. They would not refund $. They collected a pet fee and wouldn’t refund that either. I immediately contacted my credit card company and will fight this. The manager was kind until I spoke up then not so much. Had blanket answers that I’m sure he has had to use over and over again. People hanging around this place and in parking lot were enough to make anyone nervous. As in my title the only thing that was missing was a chalk line of a body.

The room was old, in need of major repair, paint chipping off walls, bathroom looked like a 70s upgrade. Location was good, walking distance to beach. That is only positive thing i can say. Housekeeping never came to our room, we were there for 3 days, so, we put trash outside room.. the balcony was nice, afraid a stong breeze would knock it down onto you, but hey, the water in the shower was hot.

The person working at the front desk is friendly and helpful when we checked in. However, that is the only positive thing I can remember. There were several issues with this place. First is the noise from Freeway 5, which can penetrate the window and AC noise can be annoying as well. Second, it was in need of maintenance. In our room, for examples, the bathroom window screen was missing, toilet paper holder was sitting on the counter, and some furniture look worn out. Unless I absolutely cannot find anything in this area, I would not stay at this place again.

Booked a Room for 7/28/2022 to 7/29/2022 Room 221 just over the lobby. I checked out immediately after booking. The hotel staff told me I could not have a refund, Despite the room smelling like urine. Mysterious red stains on the carpet, a hole cut in the mattress( most likely to hide something.) and just over all being a disguising hotel room. The hotel desk called the manager while rolling eyes stating " the room is not up to my standards." It is of note I was not being difficult, and had already booked at the comfort inn for the same price (clean nice room). I simply wanted to cancel and my money back. I would Run from this place if you are looking. Cheap does not equal value in this case. Believe the Reviews
