I spent the weekend here w/a group of friends over the Memorial Day weekend. We were in Escondido for a softball tournament and this motel was close to the fields and had gotten really good reviews here.

Motel Mediteran is your basic 2 story motel w/stairs...no elevator. Check in was easy. The room was clean, comfortable and very nicely updated. The microwave and fridge were very useful. If you are a light sleeper, i would suggest you ask for a room away from the parking lot. There is a bar on that side of the motel and sometimes the patrons were loud...but i can't fault the motel for that.

There was a pool, but i didn't use it so i can't comment. It looked clean though. There was an ice machine and a couple vending machines. The free breakfast was pretty basic: muffins, doughnuts, cereal, milk, coffee and juice. They also have free internet but since i didn't bring my computer, i didn't use it...thought it was worth mentioning though.

All in all, a real nice experience. I'd recommend it to anyone.

The room is approximately 15 foot by 15 foot, with NO closet and a SMALL bathroom. The closet consists of a clothes bar that sits in a part of the wall that is sunk in about a foot. There is a door that was locked and blocked by a table and two chairs. Never figured out where this led to. The clerks were corgial, but not over friendly. It also appears that there are some folks that have made this motel their permanent home. This was not anything close to what I expected, but the price should have given it away (55 per night). We lasted about about 1 1/2 hours before we booked with the Holiday Inn, down the road. The rooms looked nice and were very clean, but it just was not for us.

The room was spacious, immaculate, and recently remodeled. The furniture was a beautiful cherry wood finish with no scratches. The textured walls were clean with no scrapes or dents. The carpeting was in very good condition. The lighting was modern and eco-friendly. There was polished marble tile on the bathroom floor, walls, and shower stall. The nightstands and bathroom sink had granite countertops. The landscaping with pretty and well-maintained. The owner was friendly and accomodating. Last but not least, the price was reasonable. I travel a lot, and this is one of the best motels I've every stayed in. I will definitely patronize them again.

Offbrand hotels always seem like a gamble, but this one turned out OK. The room was clean and well furnished. Nothing impressive, but everything you would expect from a hotel room. The location was nothing special, but just fine for a stop at the SD wild animal park (5 minutes away). Breakfast was very weak (just skip it), but everything else was gine.

The owners live on-site -- pride of ownership shows. They go the extra mile to make sure everything is very clean and guests are comfortable. We ended up staying here 6 days (a bit more than we planned). The rooms are recently remodeled. The fridge is a bit larger than some of the other places we stayed. There was also a microwave and a nice modern TV. For an extra $5 a day, they can open a door in the room that contains a little "mini-kitchen." We didn't need, so didn't do this. The only thing we were missing in the room, was a coffee machine.

We had a double queen on the first floor. So it was easy to carry our luggage in. The continental breakfast was very basic: milk, cereal, fresh fruit and pre-packaged rolls. It was fine for us. The location seems relatively peaceful. From the hotel, it is easy to access to the freeway, shopping etc. There is a really fun gift shop (best known for it's Christmas decor in the fall) to one side on the hotel. Trader Joes, eating places and shopping are within a few blocks.

The only confusing thing (to us out-of-staters) was that there are TWO streets directly in front of the hotel. One is a little "side street" (this is the one the hotel is on) and the other is a major road. But once we got used to that, we were fine. I'm quite sure we will be staying here again.
