I booked this Motel 6 as it was close to an event I was attending. It is just off the freeway, yet a bit of a trick to find as the address is behind the Jiffy Lube. I went by it at first. Coming around the block it was easier to see. There is a family style restaurant across the street and shopping near by. The service at the desk was okay. The thick glass led me to believe the neighborhood is not the best. There is a small counter in the office where I assume they do the complimentary coffee. One long side of the hotel faces the freeway and there is no parking on that side. This means a room on the courtyard can result in a walk. The room itself seemed current and clean. The AC worked well once turned on. The TV was easy and connection to the web was also easy. Frankly, I like the clean and modern look without a lot of art or other items that can inflate the price. The shower worked well. The towels were a bit utilitarian and small. Soap is the only toiletry provided. The pool is reasonable in size and popular with the kids. There was one laundry room accessible by room key that also contained two ice machines (one was empty) and a soda and snack machine. One lodger did get change at the desk while I was there. I wish the courtyard appeared like the one stock photo in the add, but it was no where close. Instead, the grass was dead and littered with cigarette butts and dog poop. Knowing I was nowhere near the coast, when I booked a "beach view" I suppose I guessed that a courtyard view was in order. While the area was tired, it was relatively quiet. It should be noted that in general there was litter in the courtyard, around the pool and the parking lot. This is an easy fix. Possibly more complicated were the apparent homeless that camped out in a large breezeway near the laundry room for most of the time. It's possible that is a regular local problem. While there is a fence on the one end of the property, once can simply walk across the parking lot. In all, I have no complaints with the room. The one laundry room was inconvenient but not critical. The general shape of the property needs attention and possibly a security guard. The property was the best of a few inexpensive choices in the vicinity, but I am not sure I would not look elsewhere first.

We had to quickly find another hotel as our regular hotel in San Bernardino was all booked up that allowed us to bring our Black Labrador with us. The rooms were clean and decent. It took a little while to get us registered. THE sidewalks were a little dirty, but this motel was doable.

DO NOT GO HERE UNLESS IT IS CHEAP, like $50. Would not pay anymore than that. Rude workers, bugs in rooms, water and ice questionable. Will only go there again if It's cheap. Beds were not the best, and I don't think sheets were cleaned. DO NOT RECOMEND

There was a conference in town, so it was slim pickings for hotels. I reserved a room, and arrived to check in. Staff was not friendly, my room was given to me. Went to the room, was not cleaned. Went back to notify, they said to give them 30 mins. They said the hotel was sold out. I paid 300$ for 2 nights. The room was not serviced the following day, and no clean towels were sent up without my license being submitted. It was a crazy hectic stay. Would not stay ever!!

This hotel is one of the most reasonably priced for a short notice trip anywhere near San Diego. It's also close to the freeway. I'll admit: I had second thoughts when I walked into the lobby for check-in and the clerks were behind bulletproof glass. But it did turn out to be surprisingly quiet. The beds were decent. Pillows were either hard or flat, but that's true of most hotels and motels. The room could have been a bit cleaner, and we did have a problem with the electronic keys deactivating on our second day. However, the clerks were attentive to getting it fixed. If you are looking for a bare-bones accommodation that is close to numerous attractions for a good price, this isn't a bad choice. The Kountry Folks restaurant is across the parking lot and Castle Park is around the corner.
