I didn’t like one thing! I’ve never stayed someplace that was this dirty in my life!

Location to shops, very clean inside and very friendly staff.

Convenient to freeways US 395/163 & I-5, prompt friendly front desk staff, clean quiet room (except for an infrequent dog bark a couple rooms down hall and a rowdy transient once for 1/2 hour @6 am infront of building) on the third floor.

Friendly costumer service

THE TV DIDNT WORK, THE BED WAS SAID TO BE A "QUEEN SIZE" ITS NOT, ITS A FULL SIZE. THE SHOWER CURTAIN ROD WAS HANGING ON FOR DEAR LIFE. THE BACK DOOR TO THE PARKING DIDNT WORK FROM WALKING UP A FLIGHT OF STEPS, THEY SAID THEY PUT IN A TICKET FOR REPAIR, BUT YOU KNOW THEY DIDNT, DIDNT WORK THE WHOLE TIME WE WERE THERE. A LOT OF HOMELESS WALKING THE STREET(NOT THEIR FAULT THO) ITS A CHEAPER STAY FOR SAN DIEGO, BUT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR....

Employees nice,helpful.Halls,elevator dirty.Late check-in 3:00 pm and early checkout 11 am rules very inconvenient!!

Good location. Worn out and disgustingly dirty common areas. Noisy with people yelling at all hours and dogs barking in room next door

In a good location, but on a Friday night there were tons of scary people outside; with parking full, I had to park in the back lot. I waited in my car for a half hour before I felt safe to enter hotel. The attendant said there was security, but I never saw anyone. I'm pretty sure the property was being used for drug transactions and prostitution. The property is very run down and dirty; I was also promised a non-smoking room (I was told the whole property was non smoking); this is not true. I had to sleep with my window open the whole night because of my allergic reaction to the smoke. It's a motel, I wasn't expecting much; however, what happened the next day was too much. I requested a late check out with a call to the front desk in the morning as I was running late (long check in process the night before, no sleep with window open all night) to a meeting 10 minutes from the motel and I didn't want to leave my bags in the car with all the suspicious activity I had seen . The women at the front desk told me I could check out at 12:15pm (instead of the 11:00). When I came back to room at 12pm none of my things were there.They had been packed up at front desk because I was "late": water bottle leaked all over important papers, shampoo spilled in clothes, some strange guys hands all over my unmentionables; I got called a liar (no late checkouts allowed), yelled at for being late, and made fun of for being concerned about my things. Just save yourself the headache and stay away!

Enjoyed location and parking. Near restaurants and downtown.

Cockroaches in the rooms!... no shampoo, soap, low on towels, etc

Its very clean. They could have a couple more amenities.

Customer service was great. Answered all my questions ...including Where is the closest fast food lol

Good location, hallways smelled like smoke. But staff were great and room was good.
