Clean environment cable had difficulties called and they came to resolve the problem within min.

For as many hotels I have stayed in around the world this is a pretty damn cool one.

Pretty cool little motel in Chula Vista. Seems recently renovated. Beds were comfy and the room was clean. My only gripe with the place was the amount of noise I could hear from the neighboring rooms. I mean I understand I got the short end of the stick as I just happened to be next to a room that was loudly awake until 4am but ugh! Typical cheaper hotel problems. I'd stay again if I was going to be in south SD.

Convenient. Staff was nice.

I wish rooms would have a fridge.

During our stay there was a motorcycle club staying at the motel as well. They revved their engines til we’ll after 2am and one couple got into a fight multiple times. Which resulted in a very bad nights sleep. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was clean and very nicely decorated. The only thing I felt it was missing was a refrigerator. The coffee shop cafe was amazing and had such a wonderful selection of food and drinks. Overall our stay was wonderful with the exception of the sleep disruption.

Very clean, friendly staff, great location. Coffee shop on site has wonderful coffee ang good food and snacks. Would highly recommend and stay again!

So cute!!

Many kitschy elements to the motel, including arcade games in the lobby and fun retro decals throughout the property. Cafe on-site is a nice plus. However, walls are thin and we moved rooms due to a lengthy, noisy argument in the next room over. Our original room also had visible water stains in the bathtub. Despite the picture of the room being nice looking, the bathroom clearly was hardly touched in the remodel (which explains the lack of bathroom pictures online). Staff was very helpful in relocating us to a room without neighbors, however that room was missing a deadbolt on the door. 5am brought extremely loud music from somewhere nearby, most likely the casino next door. Since we were leaving for CBX anyways, it didn't matter as much, but overall wouldn't stay here again unfortunately.

Their “on premises” restaurant with arcade games inside. The fire pit next to the pool is nice too.

Really enjoyed my stay here. Would definitely recommend this place to everyone. Parking is included and it’s such a cute hotel!

This property will get 5 stars from me just from the excellent customer service! The young lady at the desk was very friendly and informative. The room was dated and there was no conditioner in the dispenser in the shower but if those are my only complaints I would definitely consider staying again. The property is very family friendly. We enjoyed the fire pit in the pool area. We were able to have pizza delivered and bought marshmallow roasting kits in their store/lobby. The beds and pillows were cozy and very clean as well as the towels in the bathroom. My daughters enjoyed the video games in the lobby as well. I felt very safe on this property. We were on the first level so we got to park our rental car right by our door! If you are looking for a room in the Chula Vista area and are traveling with children this one is a win!

Awesome place to stay. Very beautiful unique and clean. Coffee was amazing

Very cute themed hotel. There were a few areas where it could be a little cleaner (like the sheets, carpet, and bathroom) but it was nice for what we needed it for. Family friendly.

It was just as it was in the photo. Nice and clean

Super cute, staff was curteous, kind and helpful. Pricing for snack items in their little cafe was very affordable.

Access to freeway,Nice trail to run or jog literally arcoss the street.Anything you looking for is about 15min way.
