This is not a hotel. It is a motel.

This is not a hotel. It is a motel and is not in a good part of San Diego. We checked in and checked out within 1 hour and they still charged me a day. I would not recommend this place to anyone especially traveling with children.

Centrally Located

On a budget, it's a nice place. Uber rides are short to Mission Beach and Seaworld. Rooms are clean and several restaurants, a grocery store, and a casino within walking distance. Room for four only stocked enough towels for three, had to leave a note for housekeeping.

Thank you for the review, Mike. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and were able to take advantage of all our nearby attractions. I'm sorry about only providing you 3 towels for 4 guests during the beginning of your stay. We'll make sure to get that right next time. Thanks again for your feedback.

Nice hotel next to Sea World

Rom was great. One issue - AC was in front room and did not really cool the back bedroom. Made the front room really cold though.

Would not stay here again.

Pros: Location
Cons: Needs upgrading terribly! Remove the fine print and include all your little additional fees in the cost of the room so you know ahead of time!
Hotel was located in a good spot for our activities, but a lot of homeless people around. The hotel is old and needs some upgrading. The fine print is VERY fine! I searched for a hotel with breakfast included, the fine print says breakfast at a fee... they did not have a restaurant on site, it was closed and they did not offer any free breakfast. They charged 14.00 a night for parking, which is also in the VERY FINE print. I should of paid a little more for a hotel that includes everything up front! then there is NO SUPRISES. I was disappointed all the way around. The staff was nice, but couldn't do anything about the added fees and no breakfast. These 2 things cost me much more than if I would of just stayed someplace else! I would NOT recommend and I will NEVER stay at a Wyndham again. I just thought with that name it would be a lot nicer!

Clean room, beds lumpy, a/c did not function

The beds were lumpy, did not have a functioning a/c. The staff was nice but was understaffed to meet the needs of a hotel of that size . Meaning the front desk admitted to me.of only having one house keeping maid for the 4, 3 story buildings.

A Motel 6 in Wyndham's Clothing

Pros: The price and location
Cons: 1. Wifi 2. Update the rooms 3. Insulate/replace the doors
Location: Close to everything
If you think you are booking a night at a Wyndham, you're not. This is more like a Motel 6 with the Wyndham name on it. This place needs some MAJOR updating to come up to par. They might say there is in-room free wifi but that is a complete lie. I was NEVER able to connect to the internet on my phone or laptop the entire 7 days I stayed. It is located between two very loud streets, and not far from the airport and there is very little in the way of insulation so it is loud. Loud from street and airplane noise, but also very thin walls. For the most part the staff was nice, but one of the days our room was only 1/2 cleaned and the towels left by the door and no new toiletries or cups. Even when I left a note asking for more the next day what I was left were two partially used containers of lotion obviously from other people's rooms. We did not experience any roaches like other reviewers but there was a bug in our night stand drawer.

Cockroaches!!!

The wifi did not work at all (supposedly they are changing providers) and the hotel is infested with cockroaches. We found them running around the floors at night in the room. Gross! The management has replied to previous posts about cockroaches saying they sprayed and it is now taken care of. That was obviously a lie. I will never stay here again and recommend you find somewhere else to stay as well.

Hello Javier, please accept my sincerest apologies for the quality of your most recent stay with us. As you may have noticed, we are currently undergoing a complete renovation and as a result, some of our available rooms have minor defects. We are working out all the remaining kinks and hope sometime in the future, you will give us another chance to show you how we've improved. Thank you for your feedback.

Disappointed

Pros: The location was pretty much the best thing about the hotel.
Cons: A good cleaning, new carpet and some professional repair work to the bathroom.
Location: There were many restaurants in the area and the hotel had easy access to the interstate.
We chose this hotel based on previous experiences at Wyndham properties. The room appeared as if there has been an attempt to update it at some point but I didn't look like the work had been professionally done. The carpet in the room was heavily soiled in some areas and and was torn and frayed in others. The bathroom looked like rust and most had been just painted over and new growth had started. The shower surround was cracked and had previous holes from earlier fixtures that were not filled correctly. The room did not even have a comfortable chair to sit in. We trusted the Wyndham name but left disappointed. We would definitely not stay there again.

Never stay at this hotel

I was really disappointed. The internet was down in building C my entire stay. the office did not help, they tell to call some tech support. I called 5 times each time I got told it had been escalated or no status change. I had work to do, and it was a big issue. The cleaning staff did not come clean the second day. we asked them when we saw them when they would come, they said 4pm and 4 pm came and nobody arrived. The customer service was horrible, the guest service was really not acceptable. I had to pay 12 dollars a day for parking which I think is ridiculous. They would not take cash for the deposit. I arrived later and the other guest with me arrived first. I actually had to email a copy of my id and credit card before they would let them check in. they would not take my card over the phone or in an hour when I was arriving, even though my guests we on the reservation. I have never written a public complaint about a hotel, so clearly this place must be pretty bad. dont stay here!
