Reviewed March 16, 2014

We've stayed here on 3 separate trips for 5 days each time with 2 kids. The rooms are clean upon arrival, and are cleaned regularly throughout the stay. Bathroom is SPOTLESS, free wifi, great breakfast, fridge, microwave, and comfortable beds. Down the road from the mall, grocery stores, and next door to a great craft boutique! The front office has always been great!

When I pulled up to this motel I had my doubts about what I would find and I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were not large, but clean with a fridge, microwave and free wi fi. The workers behind the counter were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, too. Coffee available 24 hours. And the best part it was reasonably priced. If I find I'm going to be in that area again it certainly would be my first choice.

What a delightful surprise! This small motel is oozing with warmth and charm. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable with more amenities than many of the larger chains. My room was in the back with a patch of lawn with a row of orange and lemon trees, good bed, quiet, a small pool and several outdoor seating areas. Started the day with a great provided breakfast. If you are looking for a big chain motel, this is not the place. If you want comfortable, all needs met with a quaint view and a good room, this is it!

I went to this small hotel less than a mile from my home and reserved (ten days in advance ) their best room for my daughter and my two teenage grandchildren to stay nearby over New Years. Check-In time is 2pm. When they arrived at 2:40pm they were told that room wasn't ready. When my daughter asked why, the front desk clerk said "We can't clean all the rooms at once. You will have to wait." No promise was given for the length of the wait. Finally, my daughter canceled the reservation and went to a different hotel. The next day the Mediterran Manager telephoned me and wanted to know why. I told her that they left because room still wasn't ready an hour after check-in time. Everything you need to know about the management of this hotel is in her answer to me, word for word: "It would have been better if you had told us they were going to arrive early." Incredibly, there's more: It was only later that my daughter told me that while they were waiting for the room to be cleaned the desk clerk had also demanded an additional $150 security deposit for possible damage to the room, refundable solely at the hotel's discretion.

The room was nice and somewhat recently remodeled. Good value. The breakfast was a little crowded at 8am -- hard time fitting in. Driving distance to the Escondido downtown is very short. Overall pleasant stay.
