First don't expect 4 star hotel. It is not that. But do expect great customer service and a large clean room with the light switches to the bathroom in the bathroom ( a pet peeve of my bf is the light switches outside the door.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much for $80/night. When I opened the door to my room, an incredibly comfortable living arrangement was before me.

It's not a hotel, but a motel. As any other one, if you want only sleep, is a good choice. Don't have to much to do near, only a Mall with Walmart, CVS and other helpful stores and restaurants. Cheap and near the mexican border.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this motel for the San Diego Comic Con. Overall, it was a positive experience. The rate was very reasonable, the room was nearly spotless, and the staff (front desk and housekeeping) were all very friendly and helpful. Even though it's not in the best of neighborhoods, the hotel itself and even it's parking lot...
