Close to the Zoo, Sea World local shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again. The breakfast room is small but luckily for us... More

Pro's: Motel provided good internet service, helpful staff, and convenient location to the San Diego Airport. It would be a nice stay for families. Con's: Dated décor and furniture. Old AC units. Rooms need updating. Good for families on a budget.

The location of this hotel/motel is fantastic. It is a very short drive to SeaWorld & the mission beach park & bay area. It's right off the I-5 which is convenient to Old Town, the harbor & the downtown area. The hotel is an older one and doesn't look like much from the outside. However, there is a pool &... More

We spent three nights here, and while we visited Legoland and the zoo. The location is great--we walked down to the bay one evening. It is very close to La Jolla Cove, and the zoo, airport, and Legoland were easy to get to as well. The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast room was... More

We arrived on an early flight and wanted to drop our bags at the hotel--they were able to check us in at 11:00am. That was a great start to our stay. The room and breakfast were standard Best Western fare. The location was perfect for our three days in San Diego. The hotel is just off I-5 and less than... More

Staff was very helpful. Arrived a day early. They had no extra rooms. Helped me find another hotel in the area. Breakfast was also good. The young lady at breakfast was very helpful and informative of things to do in the area.

We checked in late and were assigned the bottom floor. I specifically requested the top floor. We got into our room and it smelled like mildew but were only staying for one night and were too tired to go work with the front office to try and get another room. The $100 incident hold is a bit much especially when... More
