Days Inn San Diego Chula Vista South Bay
Ranked #10 of 22 Hotels in Chula Vista
Reviewed 5 May 2012

Stayed April 2012. Rooms exactly as pictures on website, clean & spacious. We had two double beds. Bathroom a bit small, shower over bath with shower curtains, toilet in same room. Outside is a small basin with mirror, iron & iron board with a sort of mini walk in robe. Soap, shampoo body lotion provided. Free WIFI, bar fridge & microwave, no coffee, no in room safe (even though it says on the website, I rang front desk & they said it was removed during renovation). Front desk friendly & helpful enough. Rooms have exterior entrances & no elevator, free local calls. Cheaper than Days Inn in San Diego.
We had a room on the top floor near the pool. Only real noise was a garbage truck emptying the bins at the Black Angus next door one morning.
Free breakfast is the same each day: sugared cornflakes, small chocolate ball sized cereal, a few different danishes, plain crossiant, few different muffins, make your own waffles, white bread for toasting, water, milk, tea, regular & decaf coffee, apple & orange juice, butter, syrup, apple & grape jelly (jam). No fruit.
Convenient location, next to trolley station (which we did use to get back to the hotel from Gaslamp District). McDonalds, Gas station & Black Angus right next door. Also plenty of other restaurants & grocery stores which we did not visit.
We would stay here again.
If going to Legoland, make sure you allow more than one day as one day was not enough for us. We didn’t see all of Legoland & we didn’t even get a chance to see the Aquarium which was included in the price of our ticket. Our ticket also included a 2nd day free which we were unable to use due to the park being closed Wednesdays & Thursdays. Waterpark was also closed during this time of the year.
San diego Zoo is a must see. USS Midway is good. Outlet shopping at Las Americas also good.

Hotel is easy to find, just east of San Diego fwy. Since our original room smelled of stale cigarette smoke (yes, it was a non-smoking room) the desk attendant (young lady) was very accommodating and allowed us to see two other rooms and choose. The rooms are newly remodeled and look as pictured. The bed was comfortable, plenty of hot water, micro-fridge, wifi worked well...everything was fine. Note: there is no elevator, rooms have exterior entrances, and there is so little space between the bed and the desk/credenza/cabinet unit that we had to squeeze past each other. If one was working at the desk, there was no getting past unless he scooted the chair in - way in - and it was a really tight squeeze then! Now that was nothing more than an inconvenience during our 5 night stay, but larger guests might find it more than inconvenient. Breakfast was fine, but nothing to rave over. Emma's (across the street) has some great breakfasts on the menu. Black Angus Steak House is next door (smelled so good!) and McDonald's is next to it. This Days Inn is a great value, compared to staying in San Diego and paying higher rates. One or two issues (room key not working, no DND card) were resolved easily by front desk. I would definitely consider staying there again.

I had a great motel room as far as it goes but it needed a little repair not much it was clean ended up with alot of bumps on my arm not sure if due to bed bugs or not but now gone away but we stayed 2 nights and on the second night they had a groupe of kids in the back between the 2 bldgs of the motel smoking some kind of drugs and we contacted in fact went to the office and instead of calling the police they had the maintenece go and check it out which they never did i also contacted the corporate offcie about this situation so they were aware that i would never stay there agian and might be awhile before i stayed at another days inn. they had some nice ammenitties for what it was but they need to clean up the drug issues in that area if people are going to stay i had my grandkids and who knows what might have happened

This is a nice little motel a few miles south of San Diego. It's 1 block from a trolley station in a well lit commercial area. My room was clean and nicely decorated; the bed was comfortable. They have free wifi and breakfast. In the breakfast room is a waffle iron and a waffle batter dispenser, and they're tasty.

I was in San Diego for a Conference/trade show, and the downtown hotels are very expensive. The Chula Vista Days Inn is a 10 - 15 minute trolley ride from the Convention Center and considerably less expensive.

Room Tip: Buy a multi-day trolley pass.

I have stayed several times as this particular Days Inn and the experience was very good. I was disappointed on this trip. I was on a short vacation before a business trip and I was looking forward to staying here. I think, because of their remodel, they just didn't quite have their act together.
The new rooms were richly appointed and comfortable with the tall beds and LCTD T.V.s. My T.V. didn't work and I asked the desk to send help which never came. I was surprised at this because normally the staff is very responsive and helpful. They are very friendly and eager to please.
When I am in San Diego for whatever reason, I will stay here again. I can understand the problems that can come from change and one bad experiences measured against the many good experiences I have had here make my opinion of the property still favorable.
