They were doing Construction on the lobby and the lobby is not clearly marked so it’s hard to find. The remote control in the TV in the room batteries were dead. The fan in the bathroom only worked part of the time. Had a musty smell in the room.

Awesome!!

The staff was welcoming when we first checked in. They told us about all the amenities and the beautiful pool and our room. The pool area is very clean, tables with umbrellas beautiful flowers! Our room was super clean, we had a full kitchen with living area. It was by far the cleanest motel we stayed at!! The staff was very friendly!!! Thank you!!

Vacation

Great room! Not in the busy area of San Diego but that's why I picked it. Breakfast was delicious. Staff was very nice. Just spent 1 night.

One night stay

We were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality of the staff and overall appearance of the property. Taking into account that we are used to quieter "hotels", this motel did not disappoint (pathways in front of room doors are can be noisy, especially with Rollaboard bags). Requesting a later checkout by extra half hour was no arguing matter, they were pleased to accommodate our needs.

Great location for Qualcomm stadium and SDSU

Pros: It was quiet and comfortable with reasonable rates for a city.
Cons: Dining area could be bigger
Location: There is a Von's grocery store and a Starbucks close by. San Diego State Univ is close, as well as Qualcomm stadium.
The neighborhood was good, with easy access to I-8 and a Denny's nearby for 24 hour food. The breakfast exceeded our expectations, but the dining area was small. It was clean, roomy, quiet and comfortable in an area where we felt safe.
