2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

For some reason every hotel in Southern California was sold out or way out of our price range. We were visiting the Oceanside area and needed a room for a couple of days. This property did offer a military discount, but the room was still overpriced. It is very close to Moonlight beach which is an awesome place, and the town of Encinitas is a charming area. It was easy to find because it was right off the freeway.

The rooms are micro-tiny. They are smaller than most of the cruise cabins that I have stayed in. For one person it would be fine but for two people we were constantly tripping over each other and out luggage. They had a strange smell and needed some updating.

The breakfast was pretty sparse. The two days we were there they pretty much ran out of everything. Plus there are only a few places to sit.

The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: If possible get a room facing away from the freeway.

This hotel used to be a good value. The beds are too small, (they seem to me to be a double, not queen size) and the Motel Manager is very unfriendly.

I surprised my husband with a night's stay for his birthday. The staff was very accommodating in allowing me to choose the perfect room and helping to set up the surprise. The room was clean and comfortable. We had no problems with the A/C like others reviews commented on - really no problems with anything!

This hotel was in a great location, less than a half a mile from moonlight beach and seemed to be in a nice neighborhood. It is right off the freeway but VERY quiet. Small pool but with the beach right there we didn't even use it, breakfast was alright nothing special. Staff was also so so but the rooms and hotel were well cared for. About 25 min from downtown San Diego!
