Imagine booking a trip to California from Philadelphia with your family to San Diego area near the beach. Arriving there at night and tired. We got to the room with vomit in the toilet, dry substances hanging from the light fixtures, wet slime on the head boards. It was a nightmare. Toilet backed up. Trying to get a refund was tragic. Please don’t go here. It’s not for a family weekend stay. No real logical space to park. You’ve been warned. The pictures you see is how the room was upon arrival. Totally unacceptable. The room was booked 72 prior.
Helpful beyond belief, went way out of their way to help me check in with no ID as it was lost or stolen the day of check in. Great price and amazing staff. Highly reccomend and will stay often! Thank You
Please do not think this is a boutique or anything other than a shabby motel. The room we were assigned today resembled the poorest pictures currently available on TripAdvisor. Ripped / peeling headboard cracked, shabby and grubby surfaces on the minimal furnishings in a tiny room (and I believe ours was one of the larger available as we had upgraded with a pull out bed) I am sure there are worse places to stay, but I have no interest in ever seeing those. We didn’t even take our suitcases out of the car. Relocated right away.
I loved the room. It was cozy and inviting. The front desk guy was super friendly. I would stay here again. They do require a security deposit of $100 they said it only places a hold on the funds but my account notifies me when funds are paid and it came out. I’ll see after I check out transaction is reversed. There was some water damage on the sink next to the shower from shower spray if the curtain isn’t closed all the way. I wouldn’t have noticed but with the security deposit I wanted it documented.
Stayed here for one night Mother’s Day weekend for the Gator by the Bay Festival at Spanish Landing. We really just needed a place to crash so that we didn’t have to make the drive back to LA after a long day of booze and dancing. For one night it was perfectly fine but I wouldn’t stay much longer than that. Rooms are standard motel rooms with no bells and whistles but they’re also relatively comfortable and clean. Pluses- there is a nice little coffee spot right across the street for all your caffeinated needs. They have little pastries and such for breakfast nibbles too. Hotel was only a 30 min walk to Spanish Landing Park as well as the outdoor mall at Liberty Station. So lots of very good food options in the area. Location was absolutely perfect for our day at the festival and dinner at El Jardín Cantina. Minuses - when we first checked in no one was at reception for at least 30 min. We waited for a long time before just giving up and walking down to the festival. This was kind of a bummer because we would have liked to have gotten our keys and ditched or stuff but had to do it when we got back. There wasn’t anyone at reception when we got back at night either and we called the number on the door but no one answered. Waited another 30 minutes for until someone finally showed up to check us in. Seems they’re pretty understaffed. The room is also a little noisy. My husband sleeps like a bear in hibernation so it didn’t bother him but it was hard for me to tune out the cars zooming by on the boulevard. Overall, I’d stay here again if I needed a cheap pit stop in San Diego but that’s it.…
