The I-8 highway is right when you exit the parking lot. The rooms are clean & orderly, quiet and easy access. Free HBO and...

I needed a place to stay on short notice for the night with limited funds and found Relax Inn. It was very clean and well taken care of along with being able to check in a little earlier than other hotels it made my day. Loved the fact that Denny's was right there and close to the highway so I...

I've stayed here the last two Septembers for 3 nights each stay. The rooms have been clean, plenty of hot water and at 100 degrees temperature, the A/C worked very well. The owners are very pleasant. Next to the hotel is a Dennys', which was very convenient for very early breakfast.

We needed a cheap room, on a Saturday, in the middle of August, near San Diego, so this is what we ended up with. It wasn't horrible but air didn't work and we were roasting but owners are very nice. And it was clean and quiet.

I visited family in San Diego and this hotel is next door to Denny's and to the trolley station. The room has amenities such as fridge and microwave, making it very easy to stay for the week. The toilet handle broke around Christmas but a maid was able to fix it. The price is very reasonable.
