Sight unseen I was somewhat concerned about the place but I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. For the price I don't think I could have done better. The staff was friendly and helpful and when you check in, they give you a discount coupon for each of the eateries on the property. Even though some might say...

We went to San Diego to visit Sea World and the San Diego Zoo. We figured we were going to get a hotel and this one had one of the best affordable prices in the area. It had a swimming pool and a fitness center. The fitness center was great because after a long day, I wanted to hit the...

AC worked great and was very quiet. Refrigerator was actually quite large (we had a King Bed room) and worked well. Our room was very quiet and I heard no pool...

Stayed Aug 22-24, 2016. Basic No Frills Motel style property. Conveniently located right off I-8 Freeway. 5 minutes to Old Town and Old Town trolley stop.

The staff in the hotel and restaurants made our stay. Convenient location to San Diego State University and to local shopping. Nice grounds for a Mid-Century Modern motel. The restaurants were convenient and friendly. The rooms were average.

We are glad you enjoyed our hotel and the Waffle Spot. We understand that providing a smoke friendly area for guests is not always viewed in a positive light. However, because all our rooms are nonsmoking and because we discourage guests from smoking even in the walkways outside their rooms, we needed a central location for our smoking guests to...

The motel is surprisingly well cared for with two restaurants on site. Food and service is very good. Parking sucks but other than that thus place is great. Rooms are very comfortable. It has a central location and close to almost anything you would want to do in San Diego.
