We booked here with a wedding party (which has to be done over the phone) and had major issues getting the rate code figured out, etc. but after a week of calling trying to book we finally got a reservation (or so we thought). I thought it was strange that I never received any confirmation email, but I have never...

Basic room, but clean, fridge and everything you need. You know what to expect from a chain motel. Close to the airport and friendly service. Breakfast included which we didn't get a chance to try as we were leaving early, but seem ok from seeing the preparation. Would go back.

The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, and when we asked to change rooms, because we didn't need an accessible room, we were changed right away without any problems. We'd gladly stay at this facility again.

If you are looking for an inexpensive, relatively clean place to lay your head in San Diego…Howard Johnson might be a good choice. Even so, the “no frills” part should be in capital letters. While our room was clean, there were a number of ancient stains on the microwave and lamps that were beyond repair. In addition, the water pressure...

The room was your typical hotel. It served it's purpose of us staying a few hours to catch an early flight. The only thing that should be dones is the mold issue on the bathroom ceiling. That was my only issue. It was quiet the desk men were very quick and helpful.
