Just ok

It's hard to give a more helpful or detailed review because I can't look past the FOUR roaches I found. And the water pressure is extremely low. Parking is great, location is great, but I didn't feel comfortable in the rooms. They look nice, though! But only until you look really close, unfortunately.

Meh

It's okay. I think something more downtown is not actually that much more expensive and nicer. I was in SD for an conference at the convention center and the walk up here was pretty long. Quieter than downtown though if you absolutely need to avoid the nightlife noise.

Always reliable

There are never any surprises at the Motel 6 - rooms are always just the same, basic but clean and serviceable, and the staff are super friendly. It's in a great location.

Perfect location for exploring San Diego

We stayed for one night at this hotel. The lady at the reception was very friendly and checked a hour before the official check-in time. She also gave us a map and a brief lecture on what to see in San Diego. We have experienced this as very helpful. Room was clean with good bed and shower. No breakfast - only coffee but there are several small shops you can have breakfast. Free parking next to the hotel, you receive a voucher when checking in to the hotel. Would stay here again if visiting SD.

Good for one night

The first room we got (no smoking) smelt of stale cigarette smoke and cleaning products so we got a new room which was okay. We could not get the Ac to work so the lady at the front desk helped us out. I liked that parking was included and we did not have to pay additional fees for parking. I also liked the fact it was walking distance from everything. It is good for someone on a budget who does not plan being in there just to sleep. I would not stay there for more then one night though.
