Stayed here for 1 night and was impressed with the comfortable bed, slight view of the harbor from my room{218} and the quiet. Didn't expect much considering the look of the building but the area is great and I had a pleasurable stay....not bad for inexpensive lodging in a really cool area.

This is a very basic motel. The staff are very pleasant, informal and helpful. Very close to the airport. The room was clean and comes with a fridge, a microwave and free WiFi. There is also a small swimming pool The room walls are pretty thin, but fortunately, my neighbours were quiet at night. All in all, it is a... More

Loved the location of this hotel, which is a huge selling point to me! So close to beach, awesome restaurants like pizza nova, stone brewery, point loma seafood, and so much more! The hotel itself is pretty clean, and the staff is nice. I would say that I concur with the reviews pertaining to the carpet...it's pretty dirty and the... More

Enjoyed our stay less than 100 yards from the pier where we would leave for deep sea fishing. They had fruit and cereal out early for breakfast and allowed for us to leave our car parked at no extra charge while we were fishing.

This is a budget inn. Don't expect more, and you won't be disappointed. I've never felt unsafe, and everything is clean. There is evident wear, but again everything is functional and clean. The pool is welcome. The staff is pleasant. Really, it's what I look for when traveling - a good deal that meets my needs.

Room was not ready at check-in time. It's near the marina but no marina views & pretty noisy. Convenient location though & if you aren't spending a lot of time in your room it's acceptable. We were in San Diego for a few days before a cruise & busy seeing the sights. Very basic, you get what you pay for.

We stay here most of the time when we visit San Diego. It is a reasonable cab/uber drive from the airport,and, I think, a much better value than most within that distance. The motel itself is not new, but it is well-maintained, with very nice linens and toiletries, free internet, good beds, and even a magnifying mirror in the bathroom.... More

I checked in late at night, the hotel had the best cable channels of most I stayed at. Room was clean and reasonably priced I was almost reluctant to book because of the price but it was clean and perfect for the a good night sleep.
