“Not bad”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

This place is a very nice hotel in a pretty good location. A good choice of places to eat nearby and freeway access is very good.

One peculiar thing that I want to point out. If you view the pictures of this place from the Days Inn or Wyndham websites, the pictures that are of the interior of the building are not from this property. The room pictures appear to be from another property. That doesn't mean the rooms are bad. The rooms are actually pretty nice. However, the picures show a room big enough for a king bed and a small sofa. I've stayed there 3 times and have never seen such a room (King Deluxe). The front desk and dining area have also been redone and are nice, but also look nothing like the pictures on the website.

This is a nice place, but the pictures need to be updated so that people know exactly what they're in for. I don't think people will be disappointed with the rooms, but they are not nearly as big as the pictures would lead you to believe.

Also, I ran into a shortage of parking. Got in a little late (past 1am) and there were no hotel parking spaces available. I had to park at the Black Angus next door. Not that big of a deal because I knew I'd have my car out of there before they opened for business. That is not really the point. I paid for a room and parking should have come with it.

I would actually give this motel 3-1/2 stars. This Days Inn has been recently remodeled. The rooms are attractive, very comfortable, clean and cozy. They have ALL of the amenities you would need to stay one night or a week or more! Robert is very helpful (and has quite the sense of humor). The breakfast was pretty basic; however, I would not hesitate to stay here again. Thanks Days Inn... and see you next week! Patricia :)

Room Tip: I was near the front of the motel and the noise was minimal. Although I felt very safe here, the po...

Well it is a cheap option as long as you're getting a cheap rate. The motel is a 3 min. walk to the Blue Line trolly station and a 15 min. ride to Petco Park, and about 15 to the Mexico boarder. (trolley rates: 1 day $5, 2 days $9, 3 days $12).

This motel was recently renovated and modernized but isn't anything special. The king bed was comfortable with 4 pillows, but the thin blanket was odd. The dresser already had wear, probably not the best clientele. My room by the small pool and jacuzzi was a little noisy with people yelling at their kids. AC unit was not too noisy so that was a plus.

It is a good sized room, not huge, with a microwave and refrigerator. Shower/tub was fine with a good shower head and the toiletries were minimal.

What was good about this location is the fast food options, McDonald's, Taco Bell, Wendy's, and a Black Angus next door. The area wasn't nicest, but during the day I felt safe.

Breakfast was 6 to 9 but was out of danish, muffins, and wheat bread by 8:45. Leaving instant oatmeal, waffles (with a line) and white bread.

So even during a busy convention I'd be pressed to pay more than $100 for this room, after all, it is motel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the pool and on the 2nd floor to avoid noise.

This was the worst experience I have ever had! The rooms are very smalls, smells bad, the blanquet was dirty and full of cigarrette burns, the matress were old, the phone did no work, could not sing into the internet, the vending machine did not work, the continental breakfast was a joke! The ouside was not so clean looking and the hand rails were sticky.
