Wow! Great spot, super cute vintage motel with lots of cute updates. There are adorable outdoor seating spots both in the front and back of the property. Parking was right upfront, and it was quiet. The location was perfect, walking distance to restaurants and a market. We brought bikes and rode all around town. Definitely coming back!

The motel was quaint. The manager was polite. We booked a single room. When we arrived to our room we found it to be a handicap room. Room was spacious enough for two, bathroom was large with rails where needed. There were areas to relax outside. Cons- narrow walkways, minimal parking, space heaters were used for warmth.

Close to Navy Base Gate

Pros: Close to everything we needed. Reasonable rates, attractive and the double bed and bedding were wonderfully comfortable.
Cons: Bathroom fan was very loud and yet didn't pull the steam out after a shower.
Location: Location is close to the gate for the Base, and to several restaurants. A lovely park at the east end of Orange Ave, with the best view of the City!
In town for military family member being honored. Navy base hotel full, so I found this wonderful quaint motel online. My daughter and I found Tartine for our breakfast within walking distance. Our family had our celebration dinner at Saiko Sushi, which was also just down the street and fabulous! Overall, a great stay.

Nice motel. Good value.

Pros: Quiet and convenient.
Cons: It is what it is, and you can't expect much more for the price.
Location: Easy walk to ferry or beach. Close to grocery store and restaurants.
This is an inexpensive motel. You should keep that in mind when staying here. The desk is not staffed 24/7 (though there is phone contact available). The rooms are small and quarters tight (open door to bathroom and you block access to sink - that sort of stuff). But it was really cute. It was very convenient to amenities on Coronado, and an easy walk to the ferry where I commuted to my conference at the convention center.

Week of Rest and Relaxation

Pros: Great Room with mini kitchen. Newly remodeled.
Cons: Mattress was a bit thin for a person my size, but managed:)
Location: Walking distance to The Landing Shops, Beaches, numerous Restaurants, Grocery Store, Walgreens. We had an incredible stay. Thank you to the staff:)
Fantastic Room. We reserved the Jr Suite #11, it has a mini kitchen, walk in shower, plenty of storage, very quaint. Dual ac units kept the room nice and cool. The tv was perfectly placed on the wall at the end of the bed. This "Motel", is far better than most "Hotels" Don't let the name fool you.
