Toilet doesn't work, room stinks, and the front desk is deceitful. You're better off sleeping in your car. Beware if you book online. They'll surely find a reason to need to cancel your original booking and charge you more. for some reason trip advisor wants a really long post in order to allow you to post it so apologies if...

Didn't really plan to stay here, but because of my prior plans not panning out to be what I wanted, we were scrambling to find ourselves a last minute booking. Looked all over online for San Diego hotels, motels, and other places. We finally found this little place, it's quick driving distance to the gas lamp area was something that... More

Worn out and not in a great area. Expensive room for a cheap worn out property. Gave me a smoking room first but was able to change it to a non-smoking room. Still room was fairly large but just old and fairly clean..

They hotel is simply a great night stay! Comfortable beds which led to a great night sleep! Staff was very friendly and made my stay perfect! This hotel is worth every penny! I would stay here again and will stay here the next time I am in SD

This is an old property. And it is not that convenient for a San Diego visit. It's almost in LA Mesa. But, if you don't mind a 15 minute drive to SD, check this place out. The rooms are super clean. New paint, new tile, new bedding, new TVs. Small rooms at reasonable prices. The exterior needs a power wash,... More

When I was about to check in, the woman behind the counter told me I could not see the room before checking in. We just needed to see if the tvs were hdmi compatible. My wife tried to reason with her. Bad show Harvey!

Old clean and cheap motel... 15/20 minutes from the action of San Diego, easy to get by car. We stayed there one night. When you pay that price (150$ less then in SD), you can't expect to have any luxury...bring you haidrayer. Basic room, walls were a bit thin so we heard guests in the room beside us going in/out...

We stayed at this hotel three nights, when we got to our room the refrigerator was hot, when I went down to the front desk, it took them a half hour to come up to look at it, was told that the frig went into defrost mode every 24 hours and the manager played with the dial and finally after...

Our room was very large, had a queen bed, older TV, fridge, and microwave. There was also a table and two chairs and a dresser for clothes. The sink was in-room. The bathroom had the toilet and tub/shower. We had 2 bath towels, 1 hand towel, and 2 face cloths -- not too thick. The room had the door in... More
