“you get what you pay for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

The location is decent since it's right off the freeway. You can definitely tell it's an older hotel and the crowd it attracts because of the price isn't the greatest. Don't leave anything in your room after you check out because it will be gone. We called a day or two later and they couldn't "find" what we had left. The sheets and pillow cases were stained, but again you get what you pay for.

I love this hotel. the staff is very nice and always helpful. however I hate insects and both times I stayed in the past 6 months both rooms had roaches. I have stayed at this hotel in the past about a year and a half ago and it had no roaches. but when I stayed there before it was in the rooms by the pool so maybe they are upgraded.

very dissatisfied, front door hard to open, carpet filthy, mold in tub ac unit noisy did not cool very well, room had slight ordor to it. I wanted to pay cash and was told needed an additional $50. deposit until check out. We stayed here last Oct. and then again in 2010 both times it was a good experience.

Great location and price for clean, pleasant stay. Near downtown Chula Vista which is a must to visit. Compared to other hotels in San Diego best for price and comfort. I have stayed in various locations in San Diego and this was the cleanest, handiest and most economical I have found in the recent past. Friendly staff. Could use some improvement in breakfast area - but it is free......

A 2 night stay booked for us by a travel company became a 3 night stay because the staff made it so easy! Our 2nd floor room overlooked the swimming pool. Room was spacious with a king size bed. Bathroom somewhat small but adequate. Close to a variety of restaurants, but we ate the complimentary breakfast and then went to other San Diego sites to eat. Really helpful front desk and maid service.

Nice clean BW at good prices. Professional staff to get you checked in. If your working in the area it's a good value for a clean room. Hotel had some upgrades, to the outside and breakfast room is new.
