As another customer mentioned, this is a bizarre policy. $25 extra for early check-in before 4pm. I was told by reception this policy was in my hotels.com confirmation letter. It was not. Because we needed to change for a wedding, I inquired about paying the $25. I was told there would be no rooms available until 4pm. Apparently the attendants...

I've been coming here for years for business. My stay is always four or five nights at a time. It's always been clean and comfortable. Very quiet place to stay. There is a taco shop is right next-door and the perfect place for dinner. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance.

While the hotel seemed clean the real issue I had was checking in - we arrived at 1:30pm. I wanted to see if we could check in early but when I walked up to the door I was not allowed in at all. You have to buzz the front desk and they would only repeat the line "check in at...

My daughter lives in la Mesa and we live in England. We come for two or three weeks each Christmas. Previously I had stayed here without my husband on two separate occasions. Once in spring once in summer. I'm pretty sure it hasn't changed ownership since then and so we booked from December 7th 2016 to December 26th 2016 AWFUL....

I'll admit I was a bit worried about this place after reading a few of the reviews. We've stayed here before visiting family and once again booked 3 rooms for this Christmas. Checkin was OK but this place has too many special "rules" ; no one under 21 can stay , no visitors allowed, front door shaded and locked 24/7,...

you need around 12-15 minutes to downtown by car or you can also take the orange line. Many fast food restaurants around the property - breakfast was good with the normal stuff. Wifi was good and fast

We selected this hotel based on the distance from a party we attended during New Year's Eve. We didn't want to drive too much. Checked in at about 5pm. Room was ready. Quite a large flat screen TV, very comfortable bed and the bathroom including basic amenities. Our room (104) had a microwave, a minifridge and was completely quiet and...

This motel did the business for us. We arrived from London on the plane and had to drive to Tucson, and this place was out of town and on the way. It reminded me of the first American motels we stayed in on our first visit in the 70's - big bathroom, good shower, huge bed, desk, fridge, TV, microwave...

My husband and I have stayed here so often. It is convenient to this area and priced right. We have no complaints with the staff, rooms, and amenities. It provides us with a great place to stay and enjoy the surroundings. Try it.

Hard to find anything available , we finally found this on line. Adults only hotel? We were behind a couple getting a room. The man was touching his lady on her rear, classey. Very disturbing. Our turn came to sign in. The desk person was so rude, we had to go add money on my card for a deposit. Came...
