This was just turned into a Knights Inn so you can ignore the older negative posts. There are still negatives, but the value and staff far outweigh them. The rooms are older and the furniture is outdated (at least in the smoking rooms). There is gang grafitti (or just grafitti) on the inside of some drawers and inconspicuous places inside the rooms. There is only pizza delivery in the area and its not good. No, or minimal breakfast (probably some fruit and energy bar kind of thing) but since there is really no breakfast area I didnt bother.
On the positive side, the grounds are immaculate, pool is very nice, bed is comfortable, internet is blazing 10 MBPS fast, there are two washers and dryers, and the entire motel is surrounded by a fence. As for the area being bad, I have stayed there twice, 4 days each stay (thu-mon), and have observed nothing that would indicate that illegal activiity was occurring inside or around the motel. There is a gas station/convenience store across the street which I have walked to all hours of the day and night and have seen no undesireables hanging out in the area. I would recommend the hotel to budget consious families and women traveling alone.
You will not find a lower priced motel in the greater San Diego area (if you book online through Wyndham) that compares to this Knights Inn. If you want to go shopping or across the border its about a 1/2 mile walk southeast. Tons of restaurants, outlet shopping etc.
