Old dirty and buggy. Didn’t have my reservation so had to call Orbitz. Room is old with lots of bugs

walls dirty and not even painted all the way. there was some brown stains on the walls, ceiling and curtains. looks like they started repairs or remodeling and stopped half way.

Ice machine was hidden in pool area rooms were rented while under reivations

LOW budget, OLD SHABBY property interior really deserves a redo

Dirty room there's ants inside the room and bed side.. very DIRTY room i ever had

Decent staff and 2 queen bedrooms in Chula Vista .

While the staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. Everything looked like it had seen better days. And it was very noisy and busy. Convenient to the highway was a positive. Sorry. Just my opinion.

The people gave good service. My rating is based off the installations. WE DID NOT HAVE HOT WATER!!!!, my grandma, my uncle and myself had to shower in cold water, the front desk agent said if we needed we could borrow a key to a non smoking room to shower but we could not change to that room ( my uncle smokes). Paying full on price for a place that doesn’t even get hot water is wrong.

Very noisy. People partying all night. We could not sleep the whole night.

Nice hotel and personable staff but it's ruined by the scum that hang around the place. I felt the need to be armed just to go outside for a cigarette. The A/C is insufficient as well. I was sweating all night but it was freezing in the bathroom.

Good economic place to stay, not so close to beaches or sea world. But easily drivable with in 15 miles

I felt that the clerk profiled guest she put me way in the back where guest live i had to go to office for a iron and board old small ironing board and iron cracked and leak water for what I paid for 5ngt stay was not worth the rate! !!!

I was deciding between two hotels and went with this one because it had a Jacuzzi next to the pool. However, when I got arrived there were big clumps of hair floating in the water and it was ice cold! So much for that:(

This place is an okay stay if you're not spending any time at the hotel. The bathroom was full of ants. We were gone from 9-3 on Friday and I still didn't have my room cleaned.

This was not a bad stay. I just could have done without the no iron, the questionable looking breakfast and the ants and little spiders that attacked during my sleep.

very clean rooms, staff very nice and comfortable beds

rooms are nice. had a problem with the internet the first day and they moved us the next to improve our internet service. they are currently switching internet services and should be better very soon. overall nice stay will stay there again. one side note if you are someone with mobility issues they have a lift for getting into and out of the hot tub and pool. you don't find those very many places.

As soon as we walked in the ROOM looked very outdated and old (needs to be seriously updated). We had very limited towels. The room had the tv on the complete opposite side of the beds making it very difficult to watch tv unless your slanted. There is alot of suspicious activity going on outside as far as prostitution, drug dealers, gangs. AS soon as it turned night the ROACHES CAME OUT!! I must have been killing them ALL NIGHT!! Making it very hard to go to sleep.The front doesn't care who they give a ROOM too as long as you have $. Upon check out they made it very difficult for us to get our deposit back saying the towels looked old and tried to keep my money. After reapetedly, explaining that's what they have gave us in the beginining we finally got it back.

Good hotel for the price Needs to be updated but clean
