I booked this hotel for my 22 year old son's college team because they wanted the lowest budget hotel possible for an SDSU tournament. The hotel staff person who took the reservation was polite and helpful. That's where the good part of this experience ended. When the guys checked in, it was really late. So late, it was early AM....

For the price it's your best bet around the San Diego area , rooms are clean and the tv is pretty good size, not that much parking and you have to pay for wifi that's why it got 3 stars from me , on a budget it's good , a lot of delivery options around the area too

While being in-between places this is the hotel I've been staying at. Mainly for price point and vicinity to major free ways for work purposes. Nancy and Shelia are amazing. After a long day and having to check out of the other Motel 6 in La Mesa due to them having no more rooms available, I made the decision to...

I needed a place for a stay for one night. I had a previous bad stay in San Diego in another hotel and only one night was left. This one falls in a rather calm area which was a plus. Also the room was ok. There was nothing particular but it was ok and the level of cleanliness was good.

There is a lot going on in the carpark of this hotel. Maybe cars being moved into Mexico? It didn't disturb us at all or make us uncomfortable, it was just "busy". The room didn't have any amenities except a measly bar of soap. Only coffee is free for 2 hrs in the morning. The staff were nice though. The...

We stayed here one night while waiting for our new apartment to be ready to move into. It was fairly clean. Staff was wonderful. No free wifi, and cigarette holes and burns in the bedding. The top bedspread seemed dirty. It did the job for one night but I would not stay again.

Stayed here for five days recently and was very happy with it. Room was clean, and customer service really great. Check-in was fast and easy and they honored our requests. If you have a problem they will fix it, so you can stay here with peace of mind. Importantly, this is not a hotel which will charge you unnecessary and...

We booked 2 bedrooms for one night. The receptionist was very friendly, however the rooms need a lot of work. The first rooms smelled like cigarette so we were changed. The other two didn't smell great but at least not cigarettes. The floor was not super clean. The chairs and covers of the bed were dirty, the lock in the...
