Motel 6 La Mesa CA

Reviewed 12 November 2011

Stayed here whilst visiting friends in La Mesa, otherwise we would have chosen to stay in San Diego which is a fair better location. Got a good price - about £35 per king room for up to 2 people, and stayed in two of the renovated rooms. Basic bathrooms but clean with some amenities, rooms had TVs, microwaves, coffee makers and fridges, and really comfy beds/bedding. Our rooms were next to the stairwells which meant there was some noise with people coming and going, but otherwise it was peaceful. Breakfast of juice/coffee/pastries/fruit/cereal was offered in the reception area. The management were very friendly and helpful during check-in and offering advice about local facilities.

This motel offers the best quality/price in town. Rooms are very clean, good beds, à desk, free wifi, furniture is ok, large TV, microwave and fridge, and coffee. People are friendly, and thé price is low. I just end a 5 nights stay, and I dont feel miserable, as it often happens in cheap places.
The only thing that could bother, is that there is not much to do in the area. But who really cares? 10 min from downtown, 10 min from SDSU, fine for me. Enjoy your stay!

Thank you so much for your recent review on Trip Advisor. We are very glad you have enjoyed your stay with us and that the accommodations were what you expected for a great stay. It is a little quiet in the area, but you are correct downtown's Gaslamp District and the beaches are only 10-15 minutes away. We hope you will come stay with us again the next time your travels bring you to San Diego.

My husband and I, in addition to our in-laws, stayed at this hotel while in town for the SDSU vs WY football game. We made a long weekend out of it and stayed 3 nights. This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and chose it, not only because of it's close proximately to Qualcomm Stadium, but also because the owners/managers were very kind and helpful during our last trip.

The rooms have been recently updated and include granite sink tops, nice showers and very comfortable beds. I also liked that they have duvet covers which are cleaned before each use so the beds seem very fresh...usually for the money, you get a nasty old bedspread which you end up throwing on the floor. We stayed in a king room and the bed was perfect with 2 pillows for each of us. My in-laws were in a room with two queen beds and said their beds were also very comfortable. I'm a bit of a freak about hotel rooms and these were very clean and comfortable. They do serve a continental breakfast, which my in-laws had, which was enough to tide them over until lunch.

In addition to being close to the stadium, they are also an easy drive to Mission Bay, Sea World and any of the other local attractions. It is easy to jump on the highway and get to wherever you need to be quickly. We never had a problem with traffic and getting to the places we wanted to go.

I would like to add, they do not have irons in the room; however, all you need to do is call down and they will send up an iron and ironing board.

I also want to add, one of the things that impressed me the most, one night we did have a group that was a little loud coming home one night...we complained and the management immediately addressed it with that group and needless to say, the remainder of our nights were very quiet. Yes, there is some road noise from the street but that is to be expected, you are in a big city!

This is a very nice place to stay with owners/managers that care about their patrons and are available 24-7. This hotel is a short drive off Interstate 8 but worth it if you would like a clean, friendly and very economical place to sleep at night while visiting a great city!

Room Tip: Liked higher floor as no one over us. Did say in lower floor, also and did not have a problem howev...

Very Nice! Rooms very clean. A little small but perfect for the two of us. The bed ... EXCELLENT! The owner/operator is very kind and greeted me when I checked in late by name. Centeral located. Not in San Diego which was perfect. Cost was excellent as well. A little loud at night (street noise) but slept right threw most of it. Been up remodeled about a year ago and the only thing I thought that could be improved with the rooms were the towels. Kinda thin and small. I would totally recommend this place and will go back when we return there. ;-)

when you travel far from your country and are greeted by lovely people at a hotel reception it really makes a difference. the indian owner of the property was an absolute delight. he was very knowledgable and forthcoming with help and info and also guided us to some superb malls and tourist places! breakfast was basic but well placed and clean. rooms were clean too and good mattresses to sleep on.
a little far from the harbour and gas lamp quarters atleast 30 mins by car.
but overall a very good experience.
