“Best deal in the Escondido/Rancho Bernardo area”
Reviewed May 8, 2012 via mobile

I had to go down to Rancho Bernardo on business every week for three months last year - I tried a variety of hotels and this was by far the best deal. It is a motel, so I recommend getting a room on the side that is not adjacent to the parking lot and is lined with nice lemon trees. But all the rooms I had were comfortable and clean and the wall tiling in the bathrooms is finer than that of many more expensive places. The TV's aren't flat screens but they are the flattish-screen Sony Trinitrons and the channel selection is excellent. It's not the most convenient walk-around location, adjacent to a bar and an adult boutique and not much else, but it's a short drive to the restaurants and grocery stores down the street.

Stayed December 2011, traveled on business

First the tripadvisor reader should check my reviewer status. I am a top contributor and have stayed at locations worldwide. I am not an innkeeper writing false reviews to promote a stay at my place or criticizing the competition. Stayed at this location one night. Was given a room in back which was stand alone and not adjoining the others except for the roofline. Nice and quiet. Big tractor truck parked at my front door. Redecorated room. Small flat screen TV. Small bath with zero sink countertop. Shower only. That was all OK for the price but nothing special that would rate such high tripadvisor reviews. The bedbugs bites manifests itself in about 12 hours after with itching and swelling and the pronounced puncture marks. Without the bugs this would have been a better than average but by no means a stellar stay warranting top marks. The bugs make it a beware traveller.

We have stopped here for two nights each of the past four years. The rooms are clean, comfortable, the price is very good and it has a nice continental breakfast included. We have always had a room on the side that has lemon and orange trees outside our door. The bathroom is modern. The only downside was the limited number of towels for two people, but that is standard for places in this price range.

good prices and very clean, all i care about in motels is showers, toilets and very good bed, and this motel has surpassed my expectation with those, very tidy close to everything and very comfortable beds, i had the king bed was high from ground but i think that's american thing..
breakfast exceeded my expectations with great selections to choose from. don't get me wrong here its a 5 hotel star with 50 selection, but for a motel it had a very good section..
If you are disabled make sure you tell them you want lower or street front room because they might reserve a room upstairs so make sure you tell them before hand,
very quit place as well and loads of road parking.
we would come again...

This motel was a great place to stay and we will be back! Cheap, clean, great service and wonderfully funny guy at front desk. The website pics seem out of date, but it was so clean and nice, we can highly recommend to everyone looking for affordable lodging where cleanliness and good service are a must. Thanks for a great stay! Michelle and Soren from Copenhagen Denmark

I stayed here with my family and my experience was pleasant. A cheaper priced motel which has been renovated recently. Clean rooms and exterior. Comfortable beds to allow for resting after all of the walking at the animal park. Staff was friendly. We were upgraded to a king size room which had a fridge, microwave, and TV. There was also free wi-fi on site that was usually fast but did become incredibly slow on a few occasions.

Basic breakfast containing pastries, coffee, juice, cereal and hard-boiled eggs was available. The breakfast area is small so plan to take it back to your room. Overall no complaints with my stay and will consider this motel again.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the opposite side of the parking lot as it provides additional quiet time.

I’ve stayed here twice and both times my experience was pleasant. This motel is your average cheaper priced motel and the adage you get what you pay for comes to mind though I have no complaints. Upon checking in the staff was friendly and full of smiles offering help with local attractions, supermarkets and restaurants by giving you a map and pointing out locations on it. This motel seems to be frequented both by those on vacation and those looking to stay cheaply when in the area for work and it was quiet at night. Both of the queen rooms I’ve stayed in were clean upon entering and stocked with basic soap and average towels. Each room contained a fridge, microwave, TV with plenty of channels to include Showtime and HBO (one with a large tube and the other with a small LCD), and shower. There was also free wi-fi on site that was usually fast but did become incredibly slow on a few occasions. Both beds were comfortable though the pillows were blah. The blankets on the bed were really thin and I found myself turning on the heater at night and the A/C during the day. The hotel includes a guest laundry on site charging you $1.25 for each appliance though with only 1 washer and 2 dryers if there are a lot of people trying to wash laundry you might have to wait a bit (I never ran into a line). I skipped their provided breakfast but did glance at it upon checking out. It was basic, containing pastries, cereal and hard-boiled eggs. I have no complaints with my stay and will consider this motel again.
