We used this hotel/motel as our accommodation in February 2020. The key here is that I asked for a renovated room. The renovation must have taken place in the 1990s. We were here for only 3 days and that was enough. I also requested a handicapped bathroom - perhaps this was the renovated part of the room because this met the requirement. The breakfast was mediocre at best. If this will be a thing of the past because of the pandemic, you will not be missing anything. The location is right off the highway, down the street from a nice shopping area, and is convenient.

You can stay here but don't have great expectations.

This is solidly meh. Clean bathrooms and beds, but there’s chunks missing in the flooring in the hallway. Extended stay is available so there are rooms with their doors open with folks just chillin. Some noise after hours.
The rooms were clean but a little beat up. If the rates are cheap it’s fine for a night or two. Pool seemed very clean. Parking felt secure.

The carpeting was not clean. I was there 5 nights and the Maids told me they could not come in to clean anything until I checked out. I asked them for clean towels and they said I had to go to the office to get them. They advertised a kitchenette but the microwave didn't work at all. There was not even a plastic glass to drink water from. The blow dryer only worked if you held the button on the wall down. I had to go to the office twice to reactivate my room key. There was no breakfast or even coffee. There was one roll of toilet paper for 5 days. Very sad.

I chose this hotel after going through Airbnb properties and found this hotel almost the same price. In addition to that room is clean, fridge, microwave, some rooms have kitchen as well, breakfast is not bad, since it's free nothing to complaint. Overall it's a nice stay, would like to stay again.

I would give this place negative stars if I could. My husband and I checked in on Dec. 27, 2019. The room was super dirty- smelled like something electric burning. My husband and I found out why. In the middle of the night, we woke up to the heating unit falling out of the wall.
This is a fire hazard as we could've gotten shocked when we tried to turn it off to push it back in the wall.
The bathroom was dirty: old crusted toothpaste on sink and dirt and brown spots in tub. The bed was super hard: felt like two box springs stacked on top of one another.
When I reported these issues to the front desk (Brianne) didn't care at all and was very unhelpful. When I told her I wanted a refund, she said I'd have to go through Expedia to get approval. 7 different agents through Expedia tried to contact the manager (Kimberly Caballero) because they could in fact give a refund so long as it was authorized by her.
Even though the manager gets in at 11 a.m., and we and Expedia called during her business hours, she was always conveniently gone or unavailable. It took several days, and several hours on hold, before the manager (Kimberly) approved a refund, and even then they refused to refund the one horrible night my husband and I stayed there. This place, especially room 410, is hazardous and gross. Do NOT stay here!

As another reviewer stated, the service at this place is abismal. But that wasn’t the worst of it. Here’s a brief rundown:

1. It’s verrry old, run down.
2. Bed was awful, serious dip in the middle and wife and I kept running in to each other.
3. AC is a JOKE!! Don’t visit in the heat or you’ll regret it. Swamp cooler, LOUD all night, room was steaming hot upon arrival and never cooled down all night. AC would run for five minutes then the fan ran for 10 minutes and so on. It was a feeble attempt at cooling the room.
4. Shower was nice, that’s the highlight.
5. No money goes back in to this place. There’s a spot at the top of the stairs where you can see the plywood cracking. Had me thinking of the Florida tower that collapsed.
5. For $172 on a Saturday night I got ripped off with a poor return for the money spent.

Originally intended to stay 28 days but after three nights we decided to find a cleaner hotel with a kitchen . We were originally quoted $125 a night, but we’re billed $140 a night. When I called about the discrepancy, they couldn’t care less.

Do yourself a favor and book elsewhere. We found Extended Stay America in Mira Mesa to be much better, and a good rate.

This place wasn’t clean and it was old and outdated. The beds weren’t comfortable and the AC didn’t work well leaving the room extremely hot. The area and people staying there were sketchy. We just needed a place to sleep for one night but I would and pay more for a better hotel and avoid this place.

The service at this place is abismal. Good luck getting ahold of the front desk between 10:00pm and 8:00am. Couldn’t even get a fresh towel. Old, run down. Put us in wrong room to start with. TV didn’t work. Would not recommend this place if you are looking for any kind of real service. Definitely cheap, but this time I got what I paid for — cheap.

We were on a mission trip with 7 other mature adults. We made a reservation ahead, on line. The check-in person demaded he needs a COPY of our DL/passports. When I asked him why and said I believe it is unlawful (he has the right to check it to verify indentity, but never make or keep copies by Cali law). He said in a cocky way that we can go somewhere else??!!
Manager was not available, it was late, we were tired- busy schedule, so we stayed. The place is a bit shady and remembers better times. Good from far and far from good. Attitude did not change upon our check out...a lot of pride and space for communication and cs skills.
I would give it 1 star (we were safe and the room was old, but clean) and stay away.
I have over 35 years of CS experience and would never think they can stay in bussines. Lower price is not everything...
