I stayed here for Comic-con weekend. This hotel had some of the best prices in the area when booked directly through their website (even though they were inflated for the convention). The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. I had a single queen room, which was perfect for one person. The room was bright and clean, and plenty...

Our party of three (my 17 year old son, his friend, and myself) recently stayed at this motel for one week. We did a road tour of San Diego and found this location close enough yet within our modest budget. Hotels in San Diego are expensive. You have to go far from the city to find cheaper accomodations. This property...

My two teens and I were in town for a short vacation. The location was easy to find and felt safe. The desk clerks were kind and friendly. The rooms looked as if they had just had a makeover (although the bright orange wall was VERY bright!). I liked the laminate floor and lack of carpet. The cons included no...

We came here for a basketball tournament at sdsu. The place we normally stay only had smoking rooms so we gave this place a try. The rooms were newly remodled with hardwood floors and flat screen TVs. The surroundings of the hotel were quiet and not unsafe feeling at all. They had a security officer walking around all the time....

I have stayed at this Motel on previous occasions and it was dull and uninspiring, possibly due to management. Recently the motel has been refurbished and the atmosphere is relaxed, happy and harmonious under the new manager.

I stayed for a 2 night business trip. I was pleasantly surprised at the room. It had hardwood floors, art deco towel holder and they painted one of the walls orange. It was clean and spacious for motel 6. My only two minor complaints are the Internet is slow and the shower pressure was soft. But they really impressed me...

The room was decently priced, was very clean (has been newly remodeled), and even though we arrived after dark and couldn't tell if the neighborhood was good or not, we didn't have any problems with the location. Close to the mall and shopping. About 20 minute drive to Sea World. Would probably stay again.

Basic rooms. Newly renovated. Dodgy area. Definately not a holiday destinaton. Nice carpet free floors make for clean and bright. No fridge in room and only communal microwave available. No frills here.

Check in went smoothly. Coffee was ready early the next morning. Very comfortable, firm mattress. Clean walls-looks like the property has been recently improved. Quiet 2nd floor room. Very clean other than a few hairs in the bathroom.

“I booked directly through the motel 6 website and got cheaper rates than the different travel websites offered. The different types of rooms were listed.”

“DO NOT stay if your have relatives or friends that have to check in after midnight. Also call first make sure they have not sold your guaranteed room. Seems the age limit is a MOTEL Policy not the Corporate Policy nor the City of El Cajons”

“The lower floor is easier to access and easier to carry bags into. All rooms are normally quiet. Lower level A/C worked better.”
