Excellent Hotel! Our stay was wonderful. Clean Updated Room with great decor. Great location. Loved the Waffle Stop as always! Pleasant and Helpful staff. Broken hairdryer was replaced immediately. AC worked great and was very quiet. Refrigerator was actually quite large (we had a King Bed room) and worked well. Our room was very quiet and I heard no pool... More

The staff in the hotel and restaurants made our stay. Convenient location to San Diego State University and to local shopping. Nice grounds for a Mid-Century Modern motel. The restaurants were convenient and friendly. The rooms were average.

We are glad you enjoyed our hotel and the Waffle Spot. We understand that providing a smoke friendly area for guests is not always viewed in a positive light. However, because all our rooms are nonsmoking and because we discourage guests from smoking even in the walkways outside their rooms, we needed a central location for our smoking guests to... More

The motel is surprisingly well cared for with two restaurants on site. Food and service is very good. Parking sucks but other than that thus place is great. Rooms are very comfortable. It has a central location and close to almost anything you would want to do in San Diego.

Staff went above and beyond: We accidentally only booked one night and needed two, and they moved all of our stuff to the second room. Only problem was with the cleanliness of the bathroom. I was showering and as I looked up saw a hair of questionable origin.
