“Nice pool amidst a row of budget hotels”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Selected this hotel because of its affordability. I was not surprised by the budget nature of this hotel. Check in was friendly. Many hotels in the vicinity of similar nature. I decided to hit the pool and to my surprise, it was VERY nice. An oasis in the middle of budget hotels. A little bit out of context, but a wonderful surprise.

Room Tip: Don't miss the pool. Its hidden in back, and its a gem,

Stayed here one night recently with 2 friends and were overall very surprised by Days Hotel. I know Hotel Circle well and there are some less than desirable places there but this hotel is such a great value. You get what you pay for and I didn't expect 4 or 5-star. But our room was clean, had great amenities, excellent service at the front desk and Bunz is a fantastic farm to table burger place. Free parking alone is worth the stay as you know San Diego doesn't have many options for this. I recommend this hotel for anyone in the San Diego area.

The location was good, the staff upon checking in were nice & helplful. The overall impression of the buildings is they are well worn and tired. Our room had a musty smell when we didn't run the a/c full blast. The beds were nice and comfortable. The a/c unit doesn't have fine controls. It was either a really cold blast or it got semi-muggy in the room. There is free WiFi but the signal would cut out from time to time. The room was outfitted with a bar-fridge and microwave. The trouble started when we showered and the drain wouldn't drain quickly. Next day after some beach time at Mission Beach, my son had a shower and the shower/tub drain would not take away the water at all. The maintenance guy came twice to try and remove whatever was blocking the flow. That took about 25 minutes. He left to get another tool he said... I waited 20 minutes... he never returned for the third time. I decided to just towel myself down with soap and rinse a few times. We had to check-out and head back to LAX. The front desk was no help, the fellow just said, "Your paid in full" and offered a mumbled apology, I think. It was a budget motel stay but I wouldn't recommend it. Earlier reviews seemed to make it appear to be good for the price. Obviously I disagree.

Stayed here for 5 nights from 24th July. Nothing fundamentally wrong with the place just a motel, no more no less. No breakfast of any type offered and considering the price we would have been better off just spending a bit more and getting breakfast. Staff okay, but in general I would say I'm neutral where this place is concerned.

This "hotel" was barely adequate. The room reeked of whatever they cleaned it with. The bathroom wasn't very clean, the pocket door had hair on it and a sticker. People were hanging over the railings of each of the three floors smoking. One bight spot was the little restaurant, Bunz, next door. Good food and really nice staff. You have to pick up your food yourself, but they call you and let you know it's ready.

Room Tip: I'd probably suggest finding a room somewhere else.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay. I would describe this as a motel with the rooms being more hotel than motel-like. Our 2nd floor room had 2 very comfortable queen size beds. All of the furniture was in good condition. Carpeting was in good condition also. The air conditioner was fabulous! The front desk people were all very nice. A couple of hours after we checked in, we received a call from the manager asking us if everything was ok and to let her know if we needed anything. I thought that was a very nice touch. It was quiet the entire time we were there. We had no problems getting a parking space near our room. The elevator worked fine. The location is good. I recommend this hotel and I would consider staying here again in the future.

You know you should walk away when they tell you that the elevator is not working good. Our room was on the second floor. The walk way was slanted. Going up and down. The people outside were loud, rude and doing some drugs. Our stove had only one working burner, the bathroom door was a pocket door that only worked if you scraped the floor with it. The microwave would melt things sitting on top of it. The rugs were grey, though I am sure they were to be a nice brown. The beds had dust on them. After asking management to change bedding they told us it was fine. We had our kids with us and the room next door in the morning were have sex and you heard everything. Not the thing you want your kids to hear. Staff spoke little to no english and made no attempt at helping.

Room Tip: Choose the Holiday Inn across the parking lot.
