I have to say, at first I had some doubts about this little hotel. But although it's not fancy, it's clean, updated, and comfy. You get wifi, microwave, and little refrigerator included. Here's the thing: It's close to the airport and you get a free shuttle to/from hotel/airport. If you are tight on cash and want to do Downtown San...

Room was great. It was clean and comfortable. Upgraded us to 2 beds, free of charge. Close to the airport, and they had a free shuttle. Front desk attendants were very friendly and helpful. Air conditioning and heat worked wonderfully.

Originally booked through booking.com and then found a cheaper rate at hotels.com Unlike other reviews I thought the $10 fee was stated clearly. Booked based on reviews of recent remodels which were apparent and true, but yes the building is a motel style. (the sign "extended stays welcome" did cause us to worry for just a moment as the shuttle...

Very clean and comfortable The only problem I had is that they charge you for parking 10 bucks which is a hustle to me I think if you pay for the hotel room You should not be charged a extra 10 bucks for parking

Very nice hotel...beautiful rooms, plenty of parking, huge TV, comfortable bed, tile and marble bathroom. However, the rate is actually $10 more than is stated due to a sneaky "service charge" that is not included in the advertised rate. Overall still a good value.
