We arrived after midnight (our flight was severely delayed and we had called the motel to say we would be extremely late but still coming). When we arrived, we were given a room key that did not work because the room was already occupied. When we went back to the front desk (had to talk to the clerk through the... More

First and foremost I would like to publicly apologize for this very unfortunate situation. We have since changed our staff and are working on a better system and better customer service. There never should have been a cancellation, I cannot apologize enough and a full refund is absolutely the first thing that should have transpired. Thank you for bringing this... More

The check in was easy and the front desk clerk was friendly enough. The room and bathroom was clean and the room had a 24" on the wall. The breakfast is where this hotel falls on face, Cheerios and Wheaties the only cereal and muffins and once they ran out no more was put out even when gone by 8:30... More

Booked a room there last minute on a spur of the moment trip to San Diego from Phoenix. Most of the hotels where pricey for this week convention in town. At $80 and a Rodeway Inn I'm not expecting to receive Westin or W amenities. We had room 105 a/c was cold and room including bathroom was clean. The towels... More

These people at the front desk are so phony. The room size was okay, bathroom lights where bright but, that is about it. Old 1980's TV set, noisy, paper thin walls, sheet feel like there made out of paper (stiff), all the towels had a yellow tint to them, and some very shady people coming in to this place all... More

Scammed out of a $50 charge on my credit card, they claimed i took all the towels from the room. They probably had a value of five bucks total, and were stiff as if made from wool. If youre looking for a place to stay while attending an event at the amphitheatre beware of this place!

The room was tiny. The AC didn't work -- it only blew hot air on a hot day, and even that failed to reach the bed. The refrigerator had not been cleaned and contained stuff from previous guests. The room appeared to have been renovated--the flat-screen TV was nice--but the AC was definitely from a different era. The trolley on... More

No reservation, walked up & paid $66.24, he put me on the backside so I could monitor the train whistles. Internet does not work in room 318 (train whistle room) so I recommend not booking into 318 if you need internet. Room was clean.

This property is a former Travelodge, refurbished and adapted somewhat as a Rodeway Inn. It's the closest US accommodation to Tijuana and if you don't intend to go there, there's no point staying at this motel. Reception is tiny, there is no breakfast room and therefore "breakfast" is what's limited to what can fit on a shelf, namely coffee and... More
