Hard to beat for a budget hotel

Stayed here recently for two weeks. Kept prolonging our stay because we fell in love with San Diego and Point Loma where the hotel is located, but also because of our superlative experience at this motel. PROS: 1. Great Location with large windows facing the marina, some partially blocked by an attractive seafood restaurant, some with clear views of the Bay and sport fishing boats. Fabulous restaurants, stores and waking/bike paths are just a short hop away by foot. Carrillo monument and beaches a few miles away in one direction, downtown and Balboa park four miles the other (on fast roads, not the freeway) this beats living downtown. 2. Quiet: there are many motels in this area, but having visited most of them, this was the only budget one with windows not facing a busy road. A caveat: due to construction of a condo complex next door, it can get noisy after 7,00 am, but this was not a problem for us we were up by then. The construction should wind up Soon. 3. Everything is white and spotless from the curtains to the bed linens and comforter (down I think) to the towels and shower curtains. 4. Comfort: the beds were the best of any I experienced in a budget hotel. Remind me of the Westin. 5. Decor and ambience: there was something about the bright white modern/retro look of the room that made it a sheer pleasure to come back to. 5. Amenities: Great TV, fridge, microwave all updated. Little things like recycling bins in the rooms and the parking lot. Clean pool. 6. Staff: Courteous, helpful. Hector was especially amenable, as was the manager. CONS: parking can be an issue. We generally were the last room to get in at night and the lot was full. But the night desk attendant was so helpful, he moved his car onto the street to liberate a space for us. This is only a potential issue when the motel is fully booked as it was some days that we were there. In summary, this is a great find, considering that you are paying what you would expect for a low end motel on an interstate, but getting much more, in what is possibly the best location in San Diego. We stayed there in January, when lower winter rates were in effect.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Humphreys Half Moon luxury hotel a fifteen minute walk or three minute drive away on Shelter Island has nightly live music in a relaxed elegant setting, so you donybave to leave the hood for entertainment at night.

Weekend getaway

Excellent hotel for the price. Not the cleanest hotel, but you get what you pay for. I will mostly likely stay there again if I'm in the area.

great for the price

Very nice and attentive staff. Way comfy beds. Quiet even though construction was going on across the street. Within blocks of my class, good food, major grocery store and main roads. Loved the pool. The ice machine was out of order, or shower curtain rod kept falling down, and the carpet felt greasy, but the room smelled clean and I have a sensitive nose.

Very comfortable home away from home

I gave this hotel a four star rating because it gave me all of the things I look for in a hotel: #1 cleanliness, #2 comfortable bed, #3 location, location, location, and #4 plenty of towels. This hotel offered all of the above, and in addition, a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot. I needed a hotel to stay in for a couple days while my home was being worked on. The price was right but I admit I was concerned about the 2 - star rating. I decided to give it a try after reading other reviews about the updated rooms and comfortable beds and am so happy I did! The first thing I saw was the plush comfortable bed...and it was! The only staff I encountered were during check-in and checkout. Both were helpful and friendly. Don't let the small parking lot keep you away, the staff assured me they would find me a spot if it were to get full. Location? Well let's just say I live in San Diego because of location, location, location! It's right at the water where the fishermen go out very early in the morning. They were leaving to go fishing just as I was leaving for work. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to get away for a couple of days or even a week. Close proximity to everything San Diego and lots of good places to dine. Enjoyed my stay!

I really enjoyed this hotel. They made it hassle free checking in/out and the beds were so comfortable. It was in a great location and there are seafood eateries all around. Great value for your buck.
