The Rambler was in a convenient location...close to beach, restaurants, shopping, freeway. They offered great extras for their guests...things to make smores out by the fire pit...use of bicycles for riding on the bike path to a nearby park..laundry facility (even though we didn't use it, it's nice to know they have it)...little cafe that offered food. The front desk service was awesome...very welcoming, friendly, and knowledgable of things to do in the area. Needed to have our tv fixed...maintenance came quickly and fixed the problem fast. We went to the next door casino...very pricey at the bar...didn't eat there, but it was nice knowing we had options. We'll be back!!!

I really loved the themed based room . The only thing was that the shower tub was rusty so i felt uncomfortable showering in there. Other than that everything was great

Secure parking for pickup towing a large boat. That is hard to find in SoCal

We had a nice stay at the Rambler. The best part of the stay was the coffee shop.

Worth every penny and very nice staff, kudos to the Cafe staff especially.

Its a cool place. The coffee shop is awesome but its only open mornings /:. They don’t have fridge in the rooms :(

The property has been thoughtfully renovated with a beautiful theme throughout the property. . .the rooms are immaculate as well as staff courtesy

The Rambler is a gorgeous, well executed sixties & seventies inspired motel. It takes you back to this nostalgic time while still feeling new, fresh and ready for modern day needs. We had an absolutely wonderful time here. The only negative? Don't offer 'beach cruiser' bikes unless you can ensure that they are in great condition. All 3 of the bikes we used had seats that constantly moved as you used them, and this made for a very poor riding experience.

The staff was so pleasant and helpful! Very cute place, clean and updated. I would definitely stay here again!

Love the retro theme. The staff were always friendly and accommodating.

very clean, swimming pool clear water, very peaceful like it a lot

Amazing!!! You should go! Clean and unique. Close enough to San Diego yet far enough away :)

This isn't an ordinary motel. Though the accommodations are simple, the rooms have a cheery, colorful vibe and the staff provided excellent service. The lobby has a full cafe and game room, the pool has great lighting and a fire pit, and bicycles are available for free to cruise the marina and estuary. Freeway noise is noticeable but overall, the motel was quiet.
