Expensive and run down

The price we paid for this hotel was almost double that of a nicer, newer Motel 6 just around the corner. The WiFi included in the room did not work. We had to drive to McDonalds to get WiFi to use. That gave us knowledge of Motel 6 right behind it. The place smelled of old building and the drains were slow but the ladies there were friendly and kept the place clean. For the price I would not go back.

Normal Motel

This motel was normal and clean, there was a refrigerator in the room. The breakfast is very poor, there is only coffee and croissants.

Party all night?

All but one night, other gurests partied until well after 2 am. One night until 4:30 in the morning. We left a day early and management would only refund that unused night, not any of the nights I got NO sleep. Oh, did I mention the left over joint by the pool with all the half fun glasses of beer and drinks!

Free Bait!

This is an older hotel, but looks clean. We stayed on a Saturday night in August, so it was booked up. We had 3 in our party and only had 2 washcloths. When I asked for another one, I was told they didn't have enough since they were full. I was given a large towel since that's all they had on hand. No biggie, but seemed strange since this is a big tourist area. In the morning, my daughter opened the curtain and a large slug dropped on her foot..not sure if it was from the wall air conditioner or the curtain, but it scared her and grossed us out as well. When I mentioned it to the front desk, the reply was, sometimes they come in from the air conditioner. It was a bit disconcerting that they didn't seem surprised or concerned. Too bad we weren't going fishing, we could have used our "room" bait!

Its was really good.

Value for money.. Even though it is 10 miles away from San Diego city center, it is worth it. You get free wifi, which was a big plus. Rooms were neat and tidy. Very happy.

Do not recommend

It is an expensive ($100/night) motel in Chula Vista - nothing exciting. Stayed Fri-Sun; family of 3. Small room; night dancing nearby, with funny people then 'talking' in front of your window, at 2:00 am; trucks parking at ~10 feet from your bed, after midnight as well. With the price $40, would I stay again? - No.
