This place was so philthy and on top of that the hot water does not work!! They must have an electrical problem because the lights kept turning off. Also the ront desk lady "Melissa" was very rude. Do your self a favor and pass on this one.

Run away!! This hotel is super ghetto. The area is awful. Directly behind the hotel is a run down sketchy trailer park with barb wire fencing that run right up to the stairs of the hotel. There were police lights every night across the street. Homeless people and crackheads galore. The rooms are dirty and old. The furniture is chipped and stained. Bathroom grout is stained and nasty. Bathtub is chipped and dirty. The breakfast is a muffin and that's it! No cereal no fruit. This is one of Hotwire.com's 2 star hotels. If you see a 2 star hotel in Chula Vista on Hotwire.com DON"T BOOK!!!! This hotel makes The Roadway Inn or Motel 6 seem like 5 star hotels. I'm not just an upset customer I'm honestly trying to warn people from experience.

Room Tip: My tip for choosing a good room is run away from this hotel

Thank you for your comments. Since this review (almost a year and a half ago) we have new managers and the neighborhood is better and we have renovated our property and our rooms.

Found exposed electrical wire in the grass outside my room. Was part of the landscape lighting but was not covered. Exposed wires wet from the sprinklers were black and chard from electrical discharge.Notified the manger next mourning but he didn't seem to care.

The staff is okay. The room has all your basic needs and they clean it every day. A big plus is they offer free WIFI. it's fairly close to the trolley station though there are several hotels in the area that are even closer. they only have one electrical outlet in the room though, and i kind of needed more. also, the fridge started making noise in the middle of the night, very distracting, but it's in the bathroom, so i closed the bathroom door and that helped a bit. they do have a nice air conditioner in there as well so that's also a plus.

I stay here a lot because of many different reasons. The staff are very nice and the rooms are clean, heater and air con works and the beds are comfortable.

Room Tip: I like being on the 143 144 side. It's quite.
