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.

Not a good experience!

The hotel was o.k. I asked for a nonsmoking room which I got but it was obvious that other guest did not respect the no smoking sign! It smelled horrible! and had to keep the windows open. The mattress was a bit too hard. The towels where like sand paper :( I could not sleep during the night because we got a room by the exit door in the back of the hotel and when other guest would use it. It sounded like someone was trying to open my door. Then I called the front desk to get a late check out which they did. As I was getting ready. I hear that my door was being opened and I am telling the lady behind the door that i got a late check out! and she still tried to open the door and yelling CHECK OUT?! as i am trying to get dressed and hold the door! :( I would assume that the front desk would of told housekeeping about all the late check outs. Not a good experience over all!

san diego motel 6

I was first put in a smokey room. They were very appologetic and put me in a very nice room. The motel is within walking distance of both the Convention Center and the San Diego Zoo and Art Museams. You can't beat this Motel for the price and convenient location.

NOT GOOD

Can't really expect much from a Motel 6 but the location was rather scary. People kept coming in and out of rooms. very strange environment.

Decent hotel, too expensive for what it is

We stayed here one night. One of my main problems with the hotel is value, a small room, little amenities, no breakfast, and a very springy bed should not cost as much as the hotel did. If it was 30 percent cheaper, we would be happy, but at this price, it could be better.
