Yikes. It was both I guess. Water bugs and roaches. I think at my age, I've seen enough roaches. Water bugs do appear to be a little smaller if that is what they were.

The room was very nice and clean. Nice linens. Great value for the price. Would recommend to anyone in the north county.

We expected to arrive during the night, but because of traffic arrived 8 am. Checkout is at 11 am so we figured we'll check in anyway to get a few hours of sleep and shower before moving on. They said we were too late and wouldn't let us check in, even though we had 3 hours left of what we had paid for. They refused to issue refunds. So they took our money but wouldn't give us our room.

The only nice thing about it was the bed. When I arrived the floor had not been swept. The doors open to outside and a casino is next door making the hotel noisy. Also they stopped breakfast early both days because they ran out of supplies.

Our room was above laundry and maintenance room it was loud all night long.

TV didn't work. Appears that Travelodge recently bought and there was clearly a "fresh coat of paint" on certain areas of the hotel. But other areas still need work. Front desk employee was very friendly but a little slow, I waited over 10 minutes in line for the person in front of me to get checked in.

The room was small but had everything you need (nice bed, microwave, fridge, bathroom). Hotel staff was great at accommodating me with anything I needed. If anything needed fixing they came right away. Love they allow pets without charging a bunch.

I couldnt check because their computer didnt worked i had to wait a long time to finally get my room.

Great hotel, great staff, super clean, smelled fantastic, bathrooms very very clean, huge tiled walk in shower, air worked perfect, beautiful room(small but just what I needed for the weekend). My only concern was the creepy people hanging around late at night from the casino. Had a guy run around shirtless and drunk looking through my room window but other then that I highly recommend staying especially if you plan to hit the casino. Chinese buffet in same complexe was amazing, great salad bar. Price of hotel was awesome too considering it was only 1 mile from the beach. Very convenient!! Thx Travel lodge for a fantastic weekend it was more then I hoped it would be!!!

There should be a "Heck NO!" option for "Would you recommend." You get what you pay for. It was cheap, so I didn't expect the Four Seasons. But, this "hotel" is a joke. There were homeless people all around the hotel, even charging their phones using the hotel outlets. There was absolutely no breakfast left at 9AM. Staff was not willing to refill anything. The Wifi was non existent. It did not work even once while were were there. The hotel exterior was disgusting. It looked like an old Motor Lodge for truckers. The Air Conditioner in the room (window unit) was so loud, it was ridiculous. The room had been recently renovated, and I must admit, the bathroom was pretty nice. The shower was gorgeous. So nice that I'd rather spend my time in there than anywhere else. But, the fan in the bathroom was missing the cover, and you could see the fan and its motor, etc, as well as old cobwebs. Just felt like someone stuffed a camera in there to watch people. The people in the room next to us look like they were living there for a while. It just doesn't give the hotel an overall good appeal, when it looks like government funded apartment buildings. The pool was a joke. It was not heated and extremely dirty. The hotel staff couldn't even get the gate to the pool to open. It was rusted shut. And the homeless all hung around the pool area. it looked like they used it to wash themselves. I will never, never stay here again. I won't even tell people I went here, out of sheer embarrassment.

Had no towels in room and front desk had none available, loudest oldest uncomfortable bed and it sounds like your sleeping outside with the hwy noise!!

With the exception of the dog that barked from 3 am to about 9 am, I had a very pleasant stay. They have the most comfortable beds!!!! The free breakfast was a welcomed treat. Staff was friendly and room was clean.

Nice room. Single King... Everything was clean and it looked like it was recently remodeled.

We loved our room & had a pleasant stay. Our room was perfect for the two of us & we definitely plan to come back!

The rooms were newly remodeled, but the hotel overall seemed run down.

Just what I needed. Location wasn't too bad. Would stay there again if needed.

Room was smelly full of cockroaches. The whole room had a small of something was left there for days.the only good thing was the service provided by the receptionist

The bed was comfy and looked clean. We are always glad to have a working refrigerator/freezer in the room. The walkway between the bed and dresser (to get to the bathroom, closet and suitcase rack) was sort of narrow. (If we traveled with more than an overnight-size bag, I don't know how we would have managed to get a full sized suitcase through.) The bathroom needed work! The hole in the wall where a fan used to be was dusty and creepy. There was a lot of water damage to the wall behind the toilet. And the corner shower stall was rather small.

This was a clean room. I was impressed by the helpful and courteous staff... the hotel is minutes from the harbor area of Oceanside, California where there is a beautiful beach and nice restaurants in addition to tourist services. A great value for such a nice destination.

Friendly staff, clean room, very noisy next to freeway and not the best neighborhood feel
