Humbling

location is somewhat sparse so you definitely need a reason to be in National City. You get what you pay for and all I can say is I was humbled.

Good on a budget

Average / Ordinary is about as accurate as it gets. You get what you pay for and the HOJO was cheap.

Not great, but not horrible.

The first room I was checked into had a broken toilet but I was able to switch rooms to one with a functional one. Location is by the freeway but it wasn't noisy.

good for the price

The inn is located at a very good area, near to free way, nice restaurants and all of the major attarctions. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. The room is totally good for the price as it is equipped with all of the basic necessity. The only complain I have was the microwave, which stunk from previous major burning or some other accidents by previous tenants. Overall it's good!
