We had stayed many times with the same hotel before it changed hand to become today's "Quality Inn". In the past, we had always enjoyed it's location and being neat and tidy.

Place is older and rooms are small but for the price it's worth it. Parking across street for 20.00 ish bucks isn't bad compared to other hotels that charge for parking. For a free breakfast it was pretty decent. Staff was polite and extra sweet, ask to be helped by one of the ladies malissa or alisa. Both helped us... More

Please. Do. Not. Come. Here. Poorly ran hotel. Rude staff. Rude housekeeping. Sewage smell. Air conditioner hardly works and is filthy. Good luck with allergies. Tiny, oddly designed rooms. Faucet water is smelly. Towels are super old and ratty. And good luck trying to get them replenished. You swear the towels are coming from their house. Ancient old elevator. Toilet... More

Stayed here after a Padres game because it was cheaper and fairly close to the stadium. While the people were friendly and the stay wasn't horrible, the rooms were a little small and I don't think I'd stay again. They had a sign at the door that said it was 100% smoke free yet there were ashtrays in front of... More

My first visit to San Diego was memorable and this small but inviting Quality Inn played a big part!

The check-in process was easy but that is where the good time ended. The room was filthy & the cleaning staff had walked in multiple times without knocking when we first arrived.
