The room was clean and well furnished. However, they don't have in room coffee, nor is there any in the lobby except at breakfast. I was surprised to find a rental charge on my bill for refrigerator/microwave rental as well as a charge for the safe. They provide free WiFi but the signal was so weak that it kept dropping...

My wife stayed here by herself while in CA comforting an old friend that had just lost her son to cancer. She constantly raved about how nice the hotel staff was and how accommodating they were. She said it was a little dated, but it was clean and the service was beyond excellent. She said she would absolutely stay here...

The grounds are kept up and room was clean. We couldn't get a non-smoking room. Target was near and we got a Febreeze odor eliminator, it helped. We were only there for one night. The staff was helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was packaged pastries, bars and instant oatmeal. It is very near shopping and restaurants. Nearby Phil's BBQ is...

This hotel is everything I needed it to be. Clean and convenient to shops and restaurants, as well as being stocked with a microwave and refrigerator in the room. They provide a complimentary breakfast, as well at an unbeatable price! I would recommend this hotel.

I had requested an upstairs quiet room. I was given a room above the Lobby. Though this motel is an older structure with poor acoustic insulation in its walls, my room was reasonably quiet until 2am when two or more people outside my room in the corridor arrived in an argumentative state (the FU's were flying) and after several noisy...

Outside appearance is good and we'll maintained. Room furniture seems dated. Carpet needs deep cleaning but room was clean. Room have frig and microwave. BE sure to tell them at checkout you did not use the safe or they will charge you for it.

Swimming pool should be cleaned more frequently. Wifi is good. Lobby attendants are kind. Some rooms have bad smells and housekeeping services are not perfect. The location of the hotel is perfect. 'Breakfast' is not actually a breakfast. There should be more things to eat.

The hotel was perfect for what we needed, someplace to sleep! It's clean and affordable, breakfast is nothing more than packaged pastries and coffee but it's very close to the Santee Trolley which we loved! We purchased a weekend pass and took it everywhere, it is and hour ride to downtown San Diego but not having to deal with traffic...

The room overall was clean but it lacked some very basic things that most hotels we have stayed in have. There was a small fridge and microwave, however the fridge was set so cold it froze our food. There was no clock and no coffeepot in the room and the continental breakfast was very weak. Packaged danish which didn't taste...

This place isn't too bad but a few things I don't like. Yes as mentioned in other post, the plumbing sucks because you can hear other people showering. That's always a mild problem. If you get a room off the street it can be noisy. For that, earplugs are your friends. The room is a little outdated but again it's...
