The room was average but we were charged like it was a four star motel. The TV didn't work and the manager wasn't concerned with resolving the problem. When we checked out my husband spoke with the manager again with the same bad attitude and poor customer service. We will never stay in the motel again and will not recommend... More

First the pros, the motel is easy access to Interstate 8, and very close to the trolley which makes easy access to Qualcom Stadium and downtown San Diego. The motel offers no amenities. There was no coffee available because their supplies were on "back order", the public computer was unusable because the monitor had a "problem". There was nothing in... More

I just needed a place to stay one night, wasn't looking for anything fancy at all and I got what I paid for. Nothing to complain about my room, it was clean, hot water was working and that was all I needed, if you're driving, is easy to get, close to the freeway and somewhat close to a trolley station....

This motel was simply disgusting. The carpet was sticky and threadbare, the mattresses had hair on them, the corners in the bathroom had grime collecting (gross), the bathroom door had a hole in it, the safe had dried food splattered on the front of it, the linens had holes in them, the room smelled of smoke and bug spray, the...

Didn't use any of the additional services so i won't review those. The rooms, though, were great. Very well maintained and everything seemed to be in working order. Only thing i didnt like was the lack of parking on Saturday night (but that was more due to the idiots who double-parked)
