I booked this hotel as part of a travel package thru Travelocity. My room was in a back corner by the laundry. I am not a snob, and didn't expect the Ritz at this price, but it was awful! The room had an odor. Running the fan helped a bit with that. The whole property is rundown, tho there have...

We are ok paying less and getting less but this gots was terrible. First off no screens on the windows Bars on the shower window. The first time we used the restroom the toilet paper dispenser fell completely out of the wall. The sink was backed up took 10 mins to drain each time. Very bad experience

I stay frequently at this hotel when I need to work in San Diego and I want to save on my trips. The interior of the rooms (decor, bedding, bathrooms) appear recently redone and are very comfortable. Given the affordable rooms, it's nice to have a pleasant interior to stay at. Plus a mini-fridge, microwave, decent closet space, make you...

“Ask to see the room first, before you pay! We booked through Travelocity, so paid upfront, otherwise, I would not have stayed here. The girl at the front desk is really nice. That was about it. The location is nice, but wouldn't pay more than $29 for a room like this.”
 of 5 bubbles AlbuquerqueGary, 14 Jul 2013 | Read review
“For the same price, if there are rooms available, I would recommend a few exits down and stay at the Days Inn on Mollison (where I've stayed several times in the past) in an actual non smoking room, with a pool, indoor hot tub and a friendly staff. Hope this review is helpful! : )”
