How I wound up here is a long story. That said, the location might be great if you have to do something at SDSU, but otherwise it was a little remote for me. Although there is a fridge and a microwave, the rooms have yet to be renovated. The staff was super. In a pinch, I would stay here again,...

Was in town visiting grandkids and needed a place to stay. Its an older hotel but right off the interstate. Able to get right on the road and leave right away. It was cost efficient, plently of parking, and wasn't required to give a deposit. Would stay again.

The staff at this location is very professional. They love to help and assist. Make sure you request a second floor room. Better view, and greater room experience. Maria was a cleaning lady, she thank us for our stay. Awesome!

We ATTEMPTED to stay here Dec 2 through the 4th.

We ended up arriving around 10pm ish and had no problem checking in. However, when...

The room was average but we were charged like it was a four star motel. The TV didn't work and the manager wasn't concerned with resolving the problem. When we checked out my husband spoke with the manager again with the same bad attitude and poor customer service. We will never stay in the motel again and will not recommend...

First the pros, the motel is easy access to Interstate 8, and very close to the trolley which makes easy access to Qualcom Stadium and downtown San Diego. The motel offers no amenities. There was no coffee available because their supplies were on "back order", the public computer was unusable because the monitor had a "problem". There was nothing in...
