Easy drive to ocean beach, mission beach, sea world, downtown, airport. No free wifi. Older place with history of illegal activity. If you arrive after dark, security guard entrance to check people in vehicle. Housekeeping ok. Restroom clean with good shower. Refrigerator in room works well. Employees a.ok. Warning signs mention "if any illegal activity, you will be removed." Creepy...

I liked it here. Its a little rough around the edges but I had fun, and easy driving to good surf spots. Very easy on the wallet too. I liked that the beach was straight down the hwy from the motel and some of the best beaches in San diego.

What a mistake, first, before I discuss the hotel itself, it should mention that even Motel 6 provides more ameneties than this place. There were 2 bars of mini soaps, thats it. No blow dryer, no shampoo, no iron, no elevator to...

You have to pay for internet. No soap or shampoo. Upon arriving the computer system had to be rebooted so had to wait in the lobby for half an hour. Girl at the front desk was ignorant. My girlfriend was required to have her ID photocopied, which isn't a big deal other than it showing what kind of people stay...

this motel was really old and gross and in a bad area of old town. lots of druggies and homeless around. there were stains all over the floor, chairs, and comforter. they only provide you with 1 little circle soap for washing your hands/body, no shampoo or anything like that.

Clean rooms. Pet friendly. Great staff & security professionals. Other than the tiny parking spaces, the ice machine not working the last 2 nights of my 7 night stay and the rooms not having microwaves; just mini fridges; I will definitely be staying here again.
