The beds are great and I love the service of the staff, beds are good and have very nice pool and it's well located near sea world. You can visit seaworld in uber it will cost you no more than 15 usd There shopping malls at 10 minute drive also near the San Diego airport

Comfy beds, decent sized room, loved the hardwood floors-felt much cleaner than hotel carpets. My only complaint would be the shower - the handle felt like it was gonna break off, and the shower head was too low. But I'd still say here in a heartbeat. The Kings inn just down the road (walkable) has a couple of good restaurants... More

The room was not one that I was eager to go relax in after a long day out. Small room and the tiniest motel bathroom I've ever seen. Homemade looking lighting in the bathroom. Bathroom was a mix of old and new. It was so small you could barely turn around which left no comfortable place for dressing with others... More

The hotel at first appears to be nice but once you have been there one day it goes downhill from there. Staff does not clean room properly... Just all over sink. They don't give you towels enough for a family of 4. If you ask they just don't want to do it. Once your tolietries are gone thier gone including... More

This establishment appears to be a converted motel. The rooms have been improved but still not great. Room was small to the point that I could barely sit at the desk because the chair was blocked by the bed. There was no closet just open hanging rack; a window air conditioner that had to work overtime to cool. The bathroom... More

Chose this place even after reading mixed reviews and I am glad I did! The front desk is warm and welcoming. The property is quite huge with large rooms. The rooms are clean, well that's really important. Yes, it is renovated and could have been done better but I don't think guests would pay that much attention to stay here... More

We had stayed here several times over the past 3 years when it was travel lodge and it needed some major clean up. Now that it has changed hands and name we are impressed. It still is undergoing renovation but is going to be a very nice motel when finished. We travel with out dog and the room was great.... More

First, I will say the staff was very friendly and helpful. Bad things: our card reader for our door was broken on top (couldn't see the red or green light), reader didn't always work (maintenance helped us get in a couple of times), sink in bathroom is way too high for average height person, water in shower was never hot,...

Our family of four spent a couple nights here at the end of our two week vacation in the area. The hotel is under renovations and has potential to be even better. The location is conveniently located in the hotel circle. Most of the staff were friendly. The room was clean and had new hardwood flooring, beds were new and... More
