“Nice but...”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Everything was as expected; a bit pricey for the neighborhood but it is close to La Jolla and San Diego so everything is high. They have a Truckers special and I saw evidence of prostitution twice. Just saying. Otherwise, nice pool, clean, OK.

I was not expecting anyone to come to my room and someone knocked like three times..That was pretty scarey..There was two guys standing from across each other just staring..That made me feel very uncomfortable...The hotel rate was too expensive, nothing like Bestwestern hotel in Imperial Valley, CA...

Reviewed 8 June 2014

I drove into town at about 3 am and needed to sleep a few hours and take a shower. The only downstairs non-smoking they had was hidden behind the pool (CLEANEST pool I've seen) next to laundry room. Turned out to be very quiet. No complaints there! The room looks as pictured. Not too clean though - and smelled it. Had two bathrooms... one for shower, one for sink and toilet. That would've been fine - if the toilet FLUSHED, and if there wasn't a steady leak in the tub-side bathroom. Not sure where it was leaking from - but I didn't use the shower until morning and in those four hours the water was building up quite a bit. Not something they could've not been aware of. Also clock radio was unpluged - when I plugged it in it was BLARING and couldn't be turned down or off. Unplugged it. The bed was comfortable at least. TV workrd. Didn't even look at fridge. I was extremely disappointed for the $70 spent.
