I have been in this hotel 3 times this month and each time had different impression. This hotel is not as bad as reviewed here. It is definitely simple and the rooms are small. The location has its own property security who are checking the parking and the entrance after 9 PM. The staff is very casual, means not formal...

Sketchy location. Room stunk like mold. Very small rooms. First night we were there, there was a fight outside our room. Security guards have to walk the parking lot at night. Overall I would say: unsafe area, dirty rooms that smell horrible. Pool is in a shaded area so only a very small section of it gets sun. Homeless people...

Staff people are rude. Too loud. Room smells bad and everything looks dirty. Even if you reserve ahead of time they give you whatever they have available. So if you book a 2 bed non smoking room you might end up with a one bed smoking room. Is better for you to pay a lil extra and be comfortable.

Not only that the cops are in the property every night but the people that work there are very very unfriendly most of them don't understand English enough to be working at the front desk , if you call they take down your reservation and when you go to check in they tell you that that kind of we don't...

It was a last-minute pick for a hotel in San Diego. A week before that, I flew with friends to Huntsville, TX and checked in at a motel 6 and saw a giant cockroach. I gave it a benefit of a doubt getting another Motel 6 again in SD, thinking it cant happen again. Oh, yes, it did! Another cockroach...

Stayed here 3 years ago. Staff as usual more than friendly and helpful. Motel busy and fully booked. Area somewhat run down these days. Some strange people hanging around McDonalds which shares driveway. However, room clean and reasonable. Dog friendly. Found walls thin with trucks running all night. Lots of kids running around and screaming.....but that might just be the...

The room smelled like sewage and the parking lot did not feel safe. There were homeless people with their dogs and crack heads sitting in their cars drinking alcohol. Where is security? When I asked for a new room the next day because of the smell, front desk lady, Rae said "Did you say something yesterday when you checked in?"...

The hotel room was clean, and there are a couple of restaurants nearby. As I didn't rent a car in San Diego, public transportation was very important to me. The metro station is just across street of the hotel, very convenient and nice for those who want to save money on accommodation. Instead of staying in downtown San Diego, it...

I had booked a nonsmoking hotel room and paid in advance but as soon as I arrived, there was a couple in front of me that happened to get the last hotel room and they were just paying then. Service was very disappointing. Only easy 30 min train ride to downtown SD though.
