this is usually the least expensive hotel in san diego and the location is very good. The staff is decent people. But it's just so worn. Very very worn. I won't say it's a dump because I've been to dump hotels. Its better than a dump but the carpet causes smell in room. Everything in room looks old. Everything outside looks old. Not 1975 old, like a classic just 1992 old and worn. Biggest issue bad wifi bad checkbin. Very slow on checkbin.

I am a mommy of a 4 yr old and a 5 month old. My husband and I were looking for a nice area we could take our little ones to, also traveling with our little chiuahuah. We weren't sure what hotel to book, but I can tell you I sure am glad my husband and I decided to go check them out personally before making a choice. We drove right to the Heritage hotel and we were sadly disappointed by what we saw. Near this hotel are a bunch of RV trailers that my husband could immediately tell that homeless people lived in. Near the hotel were run down apartments. My husband is in law enforcement. He said heck no we aren't staying here! There were so many homeless people walking around the area. I certainly didn't feel safe enough to take my chiuahuah outside to pee. If you have a family I don't recommend staying here, that is if you don't mind staying around a bunch of walking homeless people in the neighborhood.

Unfortunately, I stayed five days here and moved to about 7 or 8 different rooms. They checked us out of my hotel room before my reservation was expired. Groupon should be ashamed of even posting this hotel on their website!

I experienced cockroaches, they put me in a room that was in the process of being bombed with mattresses on end, smells I can't even explain, toilet that leaked and wouldn't flush, electrical outlets that didn't work unless the lights were on, the telephone wouldn't call the front desk, the refrigerator door wouldn't close, swimming pool and jacuzzi was closed, no breakfast as advertised, the staircase was non-existent and or destroyed, ice machine broke, there's only one machine, carpet with runners and holes, and a broken bed.

On the last day, we did not get to the hotel until 9 pm. We went to unlock our room, and the key did not work. My son went to get a key and came back up. We walked in, and everything of ours was gone. I had computers, hard drives, a sleep machine, food, and all our belongings just gone. Only after the shock the lady from the office came up and said is your stuff gone? I said, yes and she said we moved all your stuff out because we checked you out. She admitted it was her fault and apologized. I told her I needed my belongings. She said she did not have access to it because the maids were the only ones with a key. She was able to get it for us an hour later. We ended up having to haul our stuff to the 3rd floor for the 5th time because of all the room changes. The food was had spoiled after being out all day and stuffed in bags with containers all open and spilled out. So ended up spending more money to get yet another meal when I had food before they moved me out of my room.

Being a single Mom and this being our first vacation, it was a horrible experience. I asked numerous times for a manager to contact me. Scott, General Manager, did absolutely nothing, never received a phone call or a follow-up. I even talked to Manual, the new manager, and was told he would call me back and never received a call. He asked me if I asked to speak to a manager, and of course, they were always out of the office. I left my name and phone number 3 times. I contacted Groupon, and they said they could not do anything either. Save your vacation and invest in another hotel they do not care about their business, employees, or customers.

You should be ashamed to do business in such a manner as this! I am a full-time student and single mother of 3, trying to experience a pleasant vacation.

We booked for 5 nights for a family vacation. The staff was decent enough however it was a 2 hour wait to check in. We had to move to a different room because the AC and frig didn’t work. There was no decor, a broken desk with missing drawers and doors, and no water pressure. The room was clean but the carpet was dirty and felt wet. The only micro wave was on the first floor with the only vending machine. There were NO amenities of any kind and the WI-FI was spotty (to say the least). Fortunately we didn’t see any roaches or bugs of any kind and the security seemed to be better than other guests stated in previous reviews. I wouldn’t recommend staying there unless you had no other alternative.

First I understand I booked a low rate hotel, and I also understand what comes with hotels like this.

This hotel is worse then the pictures show. The pictures show a desk, or table in the room. We had neither, no coffee machine.

There were only two outlets in the whole room, one by the door and they other near the bathroom. I sleep with a BiPap machine. I had to buy an extension cord to sleep if I didn't want to sleep on the floor.

Since I have to work while on vacation and the lack if furniture and outlets, we decided to cancel our reservation.

In general the hotel is a cheap rundown hotel in a sketchy area.

Let me start with I read the reviews and figured it wouldn’t be that bad. Well against my own judgment and the cost, I chose to stay here for the price and proximity to the beaches and downtown. I checked in around 1130pm and there were a number of people in their cars playing loud music and drinking, the parking lot was well lit but the drunk people in the parking lot was unsettling. My room didn’t look terrible, the furniture looks like it’s from the 80’s. The carpet felt greasy and sticky in some areas, and the bed was not comfortable at all. The pillows were half the size of normal pillows and didn’t offer much of any support. The electrical outlets by the bed did not work so I had to charge my cell phone in the bathroom. I woke up around 3am to the feeling of something crawling on me. I turned on the lights and there were little baby spiders crawling on the bed and the wall behind the bed. I killed the spiders and crashed. When I woke up in the morning and checked out, I told the woman at the window they had spiders in the room and how the electrical outlet didn’t work. She didn’t seem to care and even said the spiders were probably gnats, I showed her a picture and she denied they were spiders. I told her she should have the room fumigated and she said she’d let maintenance know. I’ll never stay here again. Don’t make the same mistake I made, it’s not worth saving $50 bucks.

The room was absolutely unacceptable
There was damaged throughout the room I left immediately and talked to front desk, I told them about the condition of the room and I didn't trust getting my deposit back when everything in the room was damaged. when I left I was told I would receive a refund, on calling them the next day i was told I would not be getting a refund just my deposit back, I could not get in contact with management,
When I called the given number no one answered I got no callback when I left a message, the email I was given was not valid
I took pictures of the room and it's condition there was only one electric outlet, damage to the phone, clock, bathroom door, bedding air conditioner rust on metal clothes rack, rusty damaged sink, all the doors to the furniture where unfunctioning and there was no remote.
I'm writing this review from the motel 6 down the street for 10 more dollars it's a night and day difference I hope no one has to have my experience and try and stay at the heritage inn see the room leave and be charged $89.89 then wait 6 to 10 days for a refund on my deposit if that ever happens.

Do not stay here. There was bums falling asleep on the pool lounges, spa was a swamp, and I could see drug deals happening in the parking lot. Walls had plaster falling off and the smell of the room was horrible. I couldn't get out of there fast enough. I am not extremely picky in my motel choices, I need a clean room and a safe place to sleep. This was definitely not the case. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE.....

Cockroaches and rooms unmaintained, pictures filtered to look good. The rooms had a musky smell, and mattresses were cheap. Online booking overpriced the stay, I wouldn't be complaining so much if it cost wayyyy less. This is not a $130 a night stay.
