“Great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2011

Needed a cheap motel/hotel to stay 1 night after attending a gig at Harrah's Rincon, Valley Center on the Saturday as we weren't prepared to pay the $300+ Harrah's were charging.

Having read the reviews we decided to book and we were pleasantly surprised. The room whilst slightly smaller than average but was very clean and quite modern in it's decoration which was a nice surprise. It was also very quiet all night.

Staff were very helpful and courteous but I did feel guilty as on the Sunday morning during breakfast they ran out of a certain item and I had to wake the guy on reception as he was fast asleep behind the desk. We just found it funny rather than annoying. He was very apologetic and obviously enjoyed his Saturday night as well. Breakfast was simple but suited our purposes and value for money you can't complain. Would definitely stay again if we were in the area for another gig.

Staying at the Mediteran with my kids were great. They are nice and always made sure I had what I asked for. This was a nice quite place and there was no in and out form others staying there. It was great to be in a place were I was not brother by others. I was inmy on space and the best thing about it was that they have a coin wash on site so the cloths that needed to be wash were wash before I checkedout and I did not have to worry about have lots of dirty cloths,,,,,

This is a great place and the staff and management here is great.

Don't let these good reviews fool you like they did me.
I went there because of the great reviews and the great price. I wanted to enjoy my stay however....
Way too much noise...
Cons: The toilet didn't work and leaked and covered the entire bathroom floor with water. Towels are small; Requested 2 extra towels and never received them.The hotel is right next door to an adult entertainment facility...The hotel also allows individuals with extremely loud motorcycles to park on the lot right next to the bedrooms. We had to listen to these people blast their motorcycles all night, and again at 5am and then again when they finally left at 8am! Then when I told the front desk what was going on, they offered to move us to a more expensive room that we would of course have to pay the difference, since they were sold out and only had their expensive room available.
We had planned on requesting to stay 2 more nights and planning our future stays here also...until the noise kept us up all night.
We stayed in the noisy room and will never stay at this hotel again.
Pros: comfortable huge bed; clean room; large mini frige&microwave; huge cable TV with remote; hairdryer in bathroom; clean locked coin laundry (but no laundry soap); Also appears to be newly renovated and the hotel room decor was pretty.
Very good room for the value...too bad that we couldn't sleep in it.
The hotel offerred no discount off of our bill for not being able to sleep in the room.

Room Tip: bring ear plugs, very noisy,also request a room facing away from the parking lot since they let moto...

We had such a great stay. We wanted to stay longer but they were sold out. Best waffle ever in the morning. Small, quite and just all around nice.

We are well traveled. We have stayed at the best. This is the cleanest motel we have ever seen. Although small but compact. The furninshings lovely the bed linens high quality granite countertops on the bedside tables and in the marble lined bathroom.
We had the king sized bed . It was only $52 a night (priceline or other travel sites)
My brother had a queen room $44.95 weekdays a few dollars more on the weekend.
His room was smaller the bathroom immaculate although no marble and just a shower.
Flat screen TV, and a wonderful array of breakfast goodies , including waffles, which were high quality , the same product they use in my favorite resturant at home. Our kingsized bed was very very comfortable.
Sangita and Jay are wonderful hosts , so egar to help you with all you needs.
We were in town for a wedding and it was close to the Ofilia Winnerey where it was held.( Dont miss it if you love wine and a breathtaking veiw)
If we return to the San Diego area we will stay here again, its only 25 min from S. D.
Our room was #110 steps from the pool. I must say again, you will never find a deal like this ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I

I have stayed with this hotel for over a month. Friendly and helpful front desk is exceptional. The hotel is quiet and clean, readily accessible to freeway. This hotel is a gem for the price.
Breakfast has good and healthy variety. Highly recommended!

Its not the poshest hotel you would stay in but for the coupon price it is a very good deal hence the 5.
The room was small but clean. The front desk staff were helpful and friendly.
The breakfast was pleasingly varied for a small motel.
We will stay here again.
