Worst night ever. Bed buds, dirty walls, smoky smell.

I booked two nights at this hotel ! I wanted to see the room prior to completing my transaction because the reviews I saw were terrible . They had absolutely no customer service ! I went to the room and it was disgusting I automatically canceled my reservation and left without turning back ! I would not recommend this hotel to anyone believe the reviews when you read them . The price catches your attention of course but the saying is true you get what you pay for !

walked into the room, it was hot not set on 74 but ac turned off. Wifi, didn't work, called the office, they gave me another connection, it was poor. I was tired so I pulled back the comforter, and saw black dirt on it, then the pillows were soiled, and the sheets, now I am outraged that these indians don't change the sheets. I went down to the office and said please change my sheets, he said calm down. So I went to the restaurant next door, and was so upset I got up and went back into the office. I said are you going to change my sheets. He said ya ya ... So they did it after 3 requests, This place was really a dive.

The bedding and all of the towels were dirty. Several things in the room needed repair. It's not in a good area. I'm not easily scared or grossed out- but I was both.

Rooms were small and thought the price could have been a little lower. We did not have the chance to use the pool but it looked nice. The ice machine did not work and only saw only one.

Not bad for the price.. Room needs to be cleaned better along with the sheets.

My room was small, pillows small, pool was cold, and power for toaster & waggle iron kept tripping off when toaster pops up. So it took about 10 minutes to make one waffle

The motel would have been rated better if the cleaning person would actually clean. Looks like this place doesn't own a vacuum, perhaps the room had never been vacuumed? . I had to go buy my own towels because the ones there were all stained. ...gross! The refrigerator had stuff smeared all over it. The people at the desk seamed really like they were clueless. Overall this model just felt sketchy. Kinda freaked me out cause I was staying alone. The econolodge next door looked a lot better. There were actual cleaning ladies (multiple). That's where I'll stay next time!

The room was a bit small. You can bring your pet for an extra fee. WiFi was ok. I could not hook up my tablet to the t.v via HDMI cable, remote did not have input selection. No water pressure for the shower or sink. I had to shave but there was no sink stop and no water pressure like I said. The iron was bolted to the iron board, so it was awkward to use. But for the price at the last min. It was OK.

The hotel is not in a good area. Surrounded by trash and homeless people. My room never got serviced the entire week I was there. They boast a breakfast but it it one of the cheapest, worst breakfasts I've encountered. Staff is friendly but not very helpful. Only reason I stayed was it was close to where I was working, the bed was comfortable and the shower was hot after about five minutes. TVs were set to turn off on power save every hour and could not be changed. Very annoying!

The room I stayed in was clean and spacious however the pillows and linens are in need of an upgrade as soon as possible. It was difficult for me to sleep on extremely lumpy pillows (s).

It is what you'd expect based on the price. Didn't notice any bugs but the sheets were stained. Not sure if they were old or new.

This was a last minute getaway & your site really pulled through. Made a reservation via internet phone while driving to Escondido. Price was great & finding us a room on a weekend, last minute was great. Thank you again.

Great little room, very helpful friendly staff. Easy to get to as it is just blocks off the freeway. Mexican restaurant right next door. I think the rooms have been remodeled in the last 30 days because it looked brand new.

Just an ordinary budget motel. Nothing special. The TV didn't work properly and the shower door was broken, but it was clean.

The staff were very helpful and accommodating. We were allowed an early check-in, but when we got into our first room the frig wasn't working and were quickly given a new room.

Our stay was going fine until this rude Chinese couple and their children checked into the room next to us at around 10:30. The couple stood on the balcony talking loudly while their kids we're yelling and screaming in the room. Not the hotel's fault except for the thin walls.

The location wasn't great, but if you just need a place to sleep, this is a great value. They have one of the nicest staff that I've encountered in a long time. I would definitely stay here again!

Hotel was what I expected. The room was small but the bed was very comfortable...

the staff at the hotel went out of their way to make my experience superb. WIFI was super fast and my room was always clean. The bed was superconfy. the next time i stay in Escondido i will stay here
