Red Roof Inn San Diego - Pacific Beach/SeaWorld
Ranked #27 of 286 Hotels in San Diego
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Stayed at the Red Roof Inn San Diego. The room was tiny, one chair only. If you used the chair no-one could walk around the bed. Expensive for the size.
The coffee maker still had the used coffee grounds from the last visitor. The sink in our bathroom (unit 303) had a hole rusted completely through large enough to put your fist through ( I have a photo). We could clearly hear our neighbor through the thin walls.

Not only easy access off I-5 to beautiful Mission Bay area, but also easy access to room on ground floor for my 91-year-old Mom, with grab bars in bathroom, and elevator to 3rd floor breakfast room. Room was clean and well equipped (microwave, refrig, coffee maker), with (reportedly!) comfortable bed. Front desk staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Good value for facility and location.

This was a last minute trip during home repairs and we needed to be gone... We have stayed at RRF Inns before and had a good experience. This happened to be the week with Comic.con so rooms were kind of scarse for Best Western and prices under $150 a night.. The linens were clean and the room did not smell, the shower was great. The cons? We found an open can of 7-Up in our fridge! Only 2 wash cloths for the 3 of us. The first morning we found a double edge razor blade on the floor between the beds. It wasn't there before we went to bed. I can only guess it was on the bed cover and flipped to the floor when we took it off. Otherwise, you get what you pay for, sort of. This room was $125 and not in a pricey area. I did expect a bit more for our money. Got ** from AAA.. So we slept and showered - it worked, just pricey. The map I looked at showed this on a corner of Mission Bay. Not! It was a busy area next to car dealers. Location was OK as it was about 15 minutes from big attraction areas and right off of the I-5 but not noisey...

Room Tip: Check the hotel location carefully..

I mentioned to Vanessa, at the front desk, that I was staying overnight after a surgery. She upgraded me to a more comfortable room for myself and my caretaker, with easy access to the elevator, at no extra charge. In an era where customer service is a thing of the distant past, it is SO refreshing to have someone do something simple that makes a big difference in your life. THANK YOU RED ROOF INN! Clean, comfortable, accessible - awesome.

The rooms were tiny, but clean. The price we paid was $ 50 a night. Excellent value, continental breakfast included. Very basic, fit our needs beautifully !

We stayed in a "delux" room with 2 queen beds. After getting past the terribly rude desk clerks, we found the room was almost too tiny to walk between end of beds and TV (we are each under 120#). Furnishings inclded newly panelled walls in Eutopean style; very small bathroom, but updated. The curtains were old and dirty, however. A $49 room for $149

Stayed recently in San Diego. The Red Roof Inn had lovely rooms. The location is spot on, and the recent refurbishment makes this place really stand out. We stayed at a few hotels in SD during our vacation and this place was without doubt the best in terms of value for money. The hotel has ample car parking and was full most nights, so it is obviously a great place to be at. The hard floors were novel, but very clean. The car park was immaculate and staff very courteous. I'll be visiting SD again soon and will book well in advance!!
