We booked the room 2 days before we arrived, during spring break on a weekend. We honestly didn't really have any expectations, we just needed somewhere to lay our heads. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was really clean and it was fairly quiet. The room next to us had multiple people in and out but that was no big...

Went to this Inn once before, was a little weirded out about the fact that they would not accept my credit card without a PIN, as it is my main credit card which does not require a PIN. I verified this with Credit Card company, a main stream card we have used for more than a decade. Not so nice...

The room was clean, the staff was very helpful and I enjoyed my stay. The property is close to restaurants, the freeway and only about twenty minutes from downtown San Diego. I recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room had a two inch cockroach. That wasn't as bad as the fact someone went into my room and went into my bags. Hotel staff didn't care. Wouldn't refund money for tonight even though I left for another hotel. Seriously, don't stay here.

It was basically ok motel for the price. The fridge was too loud middle of the night sometimes. Ants!!! Too many ants. I saw bunch of them outside and that's okay. We creatures share this planet for a living but few ants were on beds. That's not good. Service was ok as well

Thank you for the feedback, in the future if you stay with us please let us know about the ants, it has been uncharacteristically hot in our area and they do try to come in and find water, we will take care of the situation immediately. We thank you for your business and wish you safe travels.

My review was deleted. I stayed here in March 2016. Loud music, people coming and going all night. Front desk did nothing. Will NEVER stay here again. The reviews on this site are misleading. I had to give it one star to post, should be no stars!

I booked this hotel last minute for SDCC. so the price was pretty high for that time, but it worked well. the bed was comfortable, the AC was great, the free breakfast was small but it worked. This was exactly what I needed after a day at SDCC. About half an hour outside the convention center and the Gaslamp District.
