No frills (BYO shampoo, one small bar of soap, etc.). 19-inch tube TV, but cable includes HBO. Clean bathroom, but carpet needs shampooing. Linens and towels were thin, but clean. Check-in was efficient. Directly under freeway (see photo), but did not notice any noise at night. WiFi not free. Parking spaces are very tight. Had to unplug a lamp to... More

This hotel is off the beaten path but centrally located. It has lots of rooms, but cramped into a small area. The parking is horrendous. The room appears clean but carpet was dirty and the sink was rusted out. The towels were like Kleenex (small and thin). Luckily we were only there for one night.

The price is reasonable, the location is the best, it takes a couple of minutes to reach any tourist places. But the thing is you need a car. The room is average, but it is good with the price. Gotta pay for the wifi if needed.

I needed a cheap place to stay while attending the Del Mar horse races during peak season and this place worked. It's very conveniently located, only a few blocks from Old Town, a state historic area that features restaurants, bars, shops and a large transportation hub. Further, it's only a mile to Mission Bay Park, home of SeaWorld and as... More

This location was not to bad for the buck. The best part is that it is about a mile from Sea World. Good breakfast just down the street and close to Dennys. However the parking spaces are smaller then compact very difficult to pull in and out. What the photos dont show is that this motel is settled right under... More

You get what you pay for! Should have paid more money to stay somewhere else. Other hotels in the area to look at before booking. Plenty to do in the area. Close to the train and Sea World. The property needs a face lift

It was a decent hotel. Good for the price, comfortable for a good nights rest. The only con was the shower head just popped off and really hurt my hand, but I don't think it happens in every room. My husband fixed it and it was ok for the rest of the showers our family took, I believe some good... More
