No problems. Cheerful and attentive staff. Economical.

This place exceeded our expectations for the price and was centrally located!

I didn’t like that your hotel charged me $8.00 bucks per night for my stay. This is something I will keep in mind the next time I book a hotel room in Mission Valley. There are plenty of hotels in Mission Valley that has free parking so I was a bit taken back about that. However the staff was amazing from the room attendants to the front desk agents.

It was a nice place to stay for what I was doing there.

Good hotel. Close to everything. Only issue was Hotel was cleaned once in 4 days and when they took all the towels, they only left one big towel in return! Had to find them to replace all the rest (towels, wash clothes, etc). Didn’t replace cups either. Like they forgot to finish the job. All else was fine.

Front desk staff was very nice and welcoming. The room was comfortable and accommodating for my stay. Other then having to call to make sure my room was cleaned, over all stay was good.

Take your money sowemehere wlsee you’ll be glad tot did. The rooms are super outdated. The carpet it disgusting and the tv is small to mediocre. The pool is at the very far end of the place and you better get there early or you won’t have any sun due to the tall pine trees. The “workout” room is only two machines and a very small 1/2 room. I wouldn’t go back even if it was a lot cheaper. The staff were friendly and that’s all the place has going for itself. And know that parking isn’t free !!!!!! You’ll be talked into signing up with an email so they can sell that for spam, so if you do stay there have a fake email to use for the parking pass. That also hold 25$ a night for deposit, you’ll get it back if you don’t trash the place. Also there was a lot of outside noise and not sound resistenat much !

Me and my gusband had checked out already and went some places before we had back to Baltimore, MD when we realized that my husband had left his wedding band at hotel, so we came back and asked the people at the concierge if somebody had already cleaned our room up coz my husband left his wedding band on one of the table inside our hotel room. They verified who i am and thank god some good honest staff turned it over to them and there we have it back!!!!!

It's close to the freeway. It's a place to stay basically. I always ask for a room on the lower floor and email them in advance but they never have my preference. They always fain ignorance to my wishes. They need to read their email. If you need a place to sleep for the night stay here.

Bathroom door would nor close properly. Restaurant on location not more that a 2+. Room A/C-Heat difficult to adjust leaving the room quite stuffy at night. Need a grab bar in ALL showers - had to hold on to the towel rack for stability. OK for a quick o'night but not for a longer stay.

Check in was fast and friendly. The room felt humid and damp, but was clean. The shower/bath felt like it was not supported underneath, kept creaking, plus was chipped and stained. People in the walkways and parking lot were noisy in the mornings during checkout. Since the rooms overlook the parking lot you can't ignore it very easy. Ice, snack and drink machines are inconveniently located. The Bunz café connected to the hotel was a real disappointment. Their staff was rude, they would not accept the coupon that the hotel gave us for discounted meals, were very slow in service, and did not follow their posted hours on the website. Pool and spa were tucked way back in the back part of the property. Overall experience was OK, but we will look for another place to stay next time we visit San Diego.

Great stay, good location. Hotel staff was very kind and helpful.

I've stayed here before and was very disappointed this time. They now charge a parking fee and for that alone I will not stay here again. The tub was filthy and the tile in the shower had mold growing on it. It looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. The staff was not very helpful or accommodating. They were polite, but, didn't go out of there way to be helpful and could use further training in hospitality. I was woken up at 1:20 am by loud music, drunk and loud people from the floor above and people shouting in the hallway of my floor. I do not hold the hotel accountable for the actions of other people. Security was on site and seemed to handle the disturbance. I really like the location, but, next time will look for other options in the area.

Pool was hard to find and not inviting. There was no privacy curtains on the window. Elevator's last inspection expired in 11/2016, 10 months ago. General appearance and condition was seedy.

I booked a room for 3 nights you would think everything would be easy process but absolutely not it was my girlfriends 30th and we ended up stuck with this hotel after a problem with our first we booked not a big deal so I book through Orbitz pay upfront and then 5 minutes later walk in to counter to get my keys and everything this was at 8pm on Saturday the 26th waiting in line for 45 min till I got helped and then they charge my card a second time and for more than I paid through Orbitz so now on vacation and I'm out the 330 waiting on refund now then finally we get the room and it's dirty stuff is broken and my 7 year old son starts coughing right away it smells like mold and they tell me this was the new part of the building lol so I call down now being 9pm ask for a new room and if we can walk through pick a clean one before we say yes that took an hour n half to get done now being 1045 we finally pick a cleaner room after looking at three more saying no my son still is coughing saying cigarettes so being 11 pm we say forget it call day shift manager in morning so I did and he actually righted the situation and did make me happier took off some money for my stay then also cleaned my room much cleaner the next two nights better stay the day before we were supposed to check out I get a phone call from hotel saying we're supposed to check out um no we have an extra day look it up finally 30 min later check out get home find out I got 3rd charge now for another 300 650 total

I liked the hotel was very clean the sheets were clean and towels changed them daily. Very nice I recommend it.

I highly recommend this hotel! I was pleasantly surprised, I've stayed at expensive newer hotels that were no way as clean as this one! The bed was very comfortable! This hotel is very central to everything.. Zoo/airport/camp Pendleton. I will definitely stay here again! Thank you Days Inn!

I traveled to SD with my two teenage sons and reserved this hotel for 2 nights. It was fine - inexpensive, clean, etc, but we decided to switch to the center of SD for the second night, mostly because Hotel Circle wasn't what we wanted once we had a good look. It really is almost on top of the highway. Having said that, the location makes everything accessible by car. Two really good points of the Days Inn were BUNZ, the onsite restaurant. It's great and well priced. Farm fresh food. The other really good point was the jacuzzi. It's big and the jets seemed pretty aggressive, which we thought was fun. We ended up taking a 4 star hotel Express Deal in the Gaslamp District. Even though we switched, I think the Days Inn was absolutely fine.

2nd floor room was too loud. I could here people above me moving around all night and when people walked by our room, the bed shook.

Nice pool, good location and parking (costs extra), quiet and comfortable room. Don't stay here if you do not like a very firm bed or if you want to walk to any restaurants.
