Great!

It's clearly not a five star facility but the rooms are up-to-date, clean, and newly furnished. The hotel's location by the trolley station and free breakfast make it a great place for vacationing on a budget.

family road trip

Good at first glance, but lights didn't work, bathroom had mold on the windowframes, lots of patches done on the walls. The bathroom door would lock by itself, and we had to get someone from housekeeping to come ulock it twice. We wanted a place with breakfast and a pool; the breakfast was great, lots of selection in a nice clean room, but the pool was so murky that we could not use it. Easy access to downtown, but not the best neighbourhood.

family stay in San Diego

Older motel that cut corners on an inexpensive renovation. Looks good at first glance, but the main lights didn't work, neither did one of the lamps. The pool was murky and WAY overchemicalled. Easy access to downtown, but not the best neighbourhood. Great breakfast on a nice, large clean room. Friendly staff. Overall, we wouldn't stay again, we'll try something in hotel circle next time.

Quick getaway

The staff was awesome. The room was good for what you pay for. One recommendation would be that they shampoo the carpets occasionally.

Reasonable

The hotel was very convenient and a reasonable price. The parking is a little tight, but all in all, conveniently located to freeway and restaurants. A decent hotel for the value. I would stay there again.
