A good place for a quick getaway.

I would only recommended this place if you are planning to stay around the area for a day or two. It offers what you expect at a regular hotel but the walls are thin and the some of the appliances do not work like the fridge, luckily we brought a cooler with us.

Great Room, Great Rates

The room was only $50 but for that we got a free upgrade to queen size beds, and had our own balcony. Staff even let us check in two hours early. The room was clean, newly renovated and comfortable. Incredible value, would stay again.

Great place to stay

I had a great experience. My only issue is the hotel doesn't have enough parking and therefore, I had to park in an empty lot a block away.

Just what I was lookin for

This place was just what I was looking for! A spur of the moment overnight family trip on a budget, couldn't of been better. It wasn't the snazziest of places, it had a bit of a musty smell, but opening a window fixed that. It had a microwave, fridge, free wifi, tv and a pool, great when traveling with kids. Definitely would recommend and will be staying again.

book it

My boyfriend and I had a 3 & a half hr drive ahead of us, it was already getting really late and we were going to be too tired to drive back home from dropping off my in law at the TJ airport. I was comparing hotels but when i read the reviews this one got (which were mostly good) and I was getting a really good deal I decided to book it with them. I liked the hotel because it was near everything (beach, downtown, sea world, etc.), the room was really nice got the kitchen suite and was more than what I expected for a 2 star hotel, and the staff were very helpful/friendly. The only down side was that the parking lot was full and had to park next door at the next hotel. But overall it was a great night stay and definitely coming back to this hotel in the future.
