We were always happy with this hotel and have stayed there many times over the past 5 years. What a change since it's become a Motel 6. We stayed 2 nights on this past trip but will not return. The room is fairly clean but very basic and cold looking without carpet, which makes a first floor room very noisy...

Stayed two nights and was not disappointed. Close to the beach and downtown. The parking lot is small, but we did not have any problems with parking. The person checking us in was very helpful when asked how we could get to Qualcomm stadium.

Probably one of the better hotels we stayed at when travelling in California. The staff was friendly, the rooms were nice and very clean and the beds were comfortably. The breakfast was not so good, just doghnuts. Coffe, tea and juice. And some fruit, if you were quick to grab some. The hotel is located in a very nice area...

I was able to obtain a reservation quickly, with the assurance that I could cancel by 4 pm. The price was very reasonable. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful. The room was clean....

The motel is fairly close to SDSU and as a parent of a student there, I'm so glad to have found it. Breakfast was ok. I just missed having a hard boiled egg option to balance out the carbs, but that's just a personal...

Horrible. One night stay. Checked in at 11:30 pm, gone by 8:30 am. How much could go wrong in 9 hours? 1. Horrible parking. Small lot with small parking spaces. Utility trucks and vans took up more than one space. Luckily I could get an end spot but had to hug the side then fight a rose bush to get...

Thank you for our stay. We were satisfied with the accommodations... especially since it was just down the street from the theater. Upon arrival, we were greeted cordially by the check-in clerk. Very helpful. Our traveling companions were immediately accommodated, but we had to wait 30-45 minutes, which was acceptable - except... Several times, as we passed by our room,...
