“quiet, clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

This hotel is a very clean, friendly place to stay. It is in a central location. Very quiet. Easy to find. The staff were very friendly, but didn't know much about the area--like good places to eat. The didn't even know about the cafe in their parking lot. We had the queen size bed. The room was a very good size, It had a table and 2 chairs. I was surprised to see a small microwave and small-dorm style refrigerator too. We were just there for a place to sleep---We stayed a Sunday night and then went back at the end of our vacation, on Friday night. There is a Von's right across the street, also a CVS and Walgreens very close. The mattress was a little firmer than I like, but at least it was all clean. The room was a very good price. We didn't use the pool--too cold. There is not a jacuzzi. I would stay here again, if just looking for a clean, inexpensive, quiet place to sleep.

Room Tip: The queen size bed is the only one in the room. If you need 2 beds, then you get 2 double beds. Ther...

The owner (female) is the sweetest ,most polite person you could possibly deal with.We arrived near midnite and she came to the outside checkin window and firstly asked would we like to see the room first.
Most people get annoyed if you ask to check the room.You can park right at the door of the room, it was clean,affordable and spacious, Perfect! The furniture is from the retro era but she made you want to stay because she has charm, grace and manners. Those qualities are non existant now a days. It was a terrific sleep and we will return every time we go to the beach in SanDiego.Lovely lady will make this motel succeed,she has the touch! Thanks Sweet Pinush!
