“Don't stay here”
Reviewed September 3, 2006

We wanted to stay in Poway to vist family. This is one of two hotels in Poway proper. We are sorry we even had to spend 10 minutes in this motel.

This bad experience begain as soon as I walked into the office. I had to wait for 15 minutes before anybody showed up. When the manager did arrive, she did not commnicate very well. When we got to the room, it had a single king bed, when I had booked a room with two queens to accomodate myself, my wife, and two boys.

When we complained, the manager said she would get back to us. After 20 minutes, I went to the office only to find her and a fellow employee lounging in at a table outside the office, smoking cigarettes and having a drink. As she reclined in the chair, she pointed to a ground-floor room and said we could have it. When I asked why it was not available before, she said that the guests would arrive later and that she would put them in the room she originally sent us two.

The room was small, dirty, and stuffy. We barely got any sleep on the lumpy beds and flat pillows. The air conditioner did not provide much relief, and we were not going to open the windows on the ground floor.

The breakfast was absolutely horrible. The waffle batter was sour! As was the orange juice. The bagels were stale. we ended up up eating at the MacDonalds's up the road.

We thankfully found another hotel about 10 miles away and stayed there the remaining 3 nights.

My advice: Find somewhere else to stay.

This two story motel is in a somewhat quiet business area about 3 miles from 1-15. Best features: best shower head I've ever seen in any hotel or motel room and I've stayed at 5* hotels, microwave and fridge in the room, free wireless high speed internet throughout the property, very clean room and property. Worst features: air conditioner is a bit noisy, satellite/local tv channels very limited (about 24 total channels), room is a bit on the small side. AAA rates this hotel 3 diamond in the 2006 tourbook. No way is this a 3* hotel but definatly is a solid 2*. Staff was exceptionally nice and helpful. There are many restaurants (fast food to nice sit-down), shops and stores within easy walking distance of the hotel.
