    Our go-to hotel when visiting San Diego

    Always had a great experience at this hotel. We've stayed here often because it is conveniently close to family in San Diego. We tried other hotels in the area that charge less, but we keep coming back here. The staff is always great.

  • 6,0.Good

    Property was a little run down. I stated there due to its proximity to San Diego State University, which made it great for my son and me on our visit to the campus. Other than the location and the friendly staff, everything else was somewhat disappointing. Our room had a slight musty smell that are typical of older, more outdated motels. The mattresses were uncomfortable, bedding and towels were worn, and the bathroom not great. The toilet pressure was super low, making it difficult to flush anything other than liquids. Finally, the air conditioning worked, but gave off a damp and musty odor. Next time, I’ll pay a little more to be in a nicer place... even if it’s further away and more expensive. By

    We requested a late check out. They gave it to us as longer as they can even the next customer had requested an early check in. We felt thankful that they tried to give us longer. Thank you!

    Excellent room. Bed was very comfortable and pillows were superb. The parking lot was a little noisy and the spaces were a little tight, but overall, the stay was excellent. The bathroom was very clean as well as the chairs. Of all the hotels I stayed in, this is rated as one of the most satisfying of them.

    The place to stay

    I’ve stayed here a few times and every time the staff has been respectful and polite. The rooms are clean, it’s quiet, and close access to food.

    Nice and Spacious

    My room was upgraded because the room mentioned online stated there was a mini fridge turned out not to have one. I was upgraded at no extra cost. The room was nice and spacious.
