First of all I drive a crew cab truck and almost couldn't fit in the parking lot. Then it took a while for the attendant to show up to check me in. Then the room was dirty!! Stains on the furniture, dried up food on the nightstand and the non smoking room smelled like smoke! I had to air it... More

When I was searching for lodging for a week long business trip the Travelodge was the least expensive for its location near the Gaslamp District and Convention Center. It is located in the Barrio Logan district but I felt perfectly safe there as a woman traveling alone. The rooms are good-sized and clean, with the basic amenities (fridge, microwave, coffee...

manager won't rent room to anyone that is darker than him, keep in mind that he's a dark Indian "manager". Rude to customers and employees, Witnesses him screaming at the young ladies at the front desk as well as the housekeepers while I was staying there.

This is not a safe place to stay. It is in a bad neighborhood inconveniently located next to nothing. Parking is limited and you will get door dings dents on your car. I changed rooms and none of the two rooms looked like the pictures on the website.

The hotel is well kept (nothing falling down/apart; fresh paint). Costs much less than hotels across from the San Diego Convention Center. A cab is about $10 one way. Taxis and Uber, etc. are quickly available when called. The neighborhood is "challenged" (colorful?) but the local street folk did not bother us in any way. Breakfast is standard Continental, but...

Spend a bit more and go some where else. This hotel has very basic accommodations and the area around it is terrible. Homeless people and druggies all around this area. Tents and people sprawled out in the streets. Very small parking lot that is hard to get in and out of. The free continental breakfast was a joke. Stale pastries... More

Hoped this would be a decent hotel for one of my employees needing to stay in San Diego under government per diem. Instead, we had to vacate a week into his 3-week stay due to terrible conditions. Loud people talking at all hours of the night right outside of his door. Strangers knocking on his door in the middle of... More
