Super 8 - San Diego - South Bay

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was all right for the price ,just the entrance to the hotel is to small to go in and the lobby needs work.

A lot of issues. 1) it took a while to get a room on the first floor, my son can not do stairs.they do not have a elevator. 2) room is newly remodeled, but sink looked like it was about to gall off the wall. Bathroom smelled like B.O. 3) pool was out of order which messed up our plan to hang out and swimming most of the day. 4) breakfast options were good, not a good healthy option available. Maybe add fruit and/or oatmeal . Maybe this will be better later,but I was not satisfied.

There was a lot of noise from other guests like: screams, slammed doors and in brief words a terrible experience

Excellent stay. Brand new rooms and amenities. Friendly staff.

Stayed there for a short business trip. Clean, convenient and affordable.

-need better healthy breakfast more fruits -directions to rooms confusing -constructions going on should do discounts on the rooms -refunds should be at the desk not later

Hotel is ok its not the best but wasn't the worst I liked the location it was easy for me to get to the places where I needed to be for that trip. Its on a very busy street but for me that wasn't much of an issue I just wanted somewhere to stay at reasonable price and close to family and friends.

I enjoyed staying here at this hotel. It is nice. There going through a renovation it seems like right now so it is probably not at its best. But its not bad at all.

Horrible hotel, I won't stay here ever again. Dirty, holes in the cortains, smell really bad, needs to invest at least in pillows. Staff is terrible.

It was so so. The ac doesnt cool of the whole room so it was hot alllllll night. Carpets werr stained but thats minor. Room would get a 3 but ac not able to cool off whole room was annoying.

The worst experience I have ever had. The floors were disgusting, I wouldn't even take off my shoes. The bedspread was covered in cigarette burns and had blood stains. We left early in the morning because we woke up covered in bed bug bites! When I called the front desk, he did not even sound surprised. They did refund us, but I will not be reimbursed for the things I had to throw away to make sure I didn't take bed bugs home with me, not for the DR. visit I had to make because the bites have gotten infected. I feel disgusting and I have not slept well since as I am still itching with bites and waking up all night worried about bugs in my bed. Stay FAR away.

It was a good stay. It was nice and big and the staff was awesome. The breakfast was good. The only thing was that the sheets had chocolate on the when we arrived and we only had two pillows. Overall... We'd stay there again.

The room smelled like smoke a little but other than that everything was fine. A good cheap place to stay

The price was just about right, very good location, but ... it's a motel in an old building, it needs a lot of preventive maintenance, new carpets and a very deep cleaning, but overall my disapointment was that they announce refrigerator and coffemaker in room (not working both), and a very slow WiFi, a major fail since that was main reason I picked them.

AIR IN ROOM DID NOT WORK, ICE MACHINE WAS BROKEN. NO WATER IN POOL

It was great was always on the beach so it was nice to pay so little to sleep

I've stayed at most hotels in the San Ysidro area, and the one thing that I require from a hotel is ACTUAL high-speed internet with a solid connection. This is the best that I've found so far. Other than that, the room is clean, and the staff was friendly! It's not as close to the I5 as other places, but it's certainly not far

Latoya the front desk girl was the BEST.. she's prob. the only reason I didn't leave after seeing how bad the room was

It was great....for the money you get breakfast..coffee maker..small refrig and microwave...kinda sketchy but for the money it was great

hotel clean nice place close to the beach . stores cafe.
