I had to go to San Diego at short notice to visit a very ill relative for several days. I was pleased to find a great, low-cost deal online (through Wyndham Rewards), so I reserved my room for just myself because I was traveling alone.
The room I got was fairly spacious, with a king sized bed. The bed and its pillows were comfortable, the drapes blocked most of the light out, and the building was quiet and clean. As a result I slept well.
I was also pleased to find the shower provided hot water and lots of flow (although the shower head was placed a bit low), and the drain did not clog. Plenty of clean towels were provided. The bathroom had a strong (efficient) fan in its toilet/shower area, and that area had its own door that you could close and let the fan run inside that room. It's always nice to be able to do that. It's also good in case someone with you needs to use the toilet or shower privately without taking up the entire bathroom (including sink and outlets). The bathroom sink on the other side of the door had a large mirror and shelf under the mirror, along with a bright florescent light. Very sensibly designed and easy to use. The bathroom also had a small coffee maker that I used daily, and the maid replenished my coffee grounds supply each day as well. I'm pretty sure I saw a microwave oven in there too, though I didn't use it.
The room had plenty of light fixtures, an ironing board and iron, exposed wardrobe rack with permanent wood hangers, a desk to write at if needed, and a color TV with remote. The remote actually worked well and did not have dying batteries or damaged buttons! That's hard to find nowadays. The TV channels were basic cable, and fine with me. The carpeting was clean and acceptable, not greasy like some places. However, the floor squeaked nearly everywhere I walked, and I was on the second floor, so I felt bad for the noise any neighbor below me had to hear. Nobody complained, though.
All in all, this motel was a great value. Plenty of parking, professional staff, and located in a neighborhood that probably has less crime than you would surmise by the looks of it. The swimming pool looked inviting but I was not planning to jump in during December; that will have to wait. I enjoyed eating breakfast at the nearby Denny's, which is walking distance--about a block!
