“white towels that are not white”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We stayed three days at this hotel. I checked several reviews and I checked Tripadvisor and had my reservations.The first day we were greeted by a friendly woman who gave us a very good map of the area and some resturant info.The location is on a busy street, Vonns is walking distance, Wendy's and a mexican fast food is across the street. The floor plan to my husband and I was good because our son usually hogs the bathroom. The bathroom and tub is separated .So it was good to use the sink, make coffee, brush teeth, put on makeup etc. The first day the towels were folded in a fancy fan, the second day I noticed the towels were dingy and instead of white a light grey( wasn't paying attention the first day). I was even more upset when I noticed a barB Que stain on the towels the next day as the time I cleaned under my finger nails after a trip to Phils Bar B Que (also walking distance). I believe they hung the SAME towels I threw out after our baths.(I put the used towels on the side of the tub half hanging on the floor, good thing I did not throw them on the floor) When we checked out I saw the maid hanging towels over the laundry basket they use to collect the laundry towels. (my husband mentioned the towels felt wet the second day) If I knew they were doing that I would never have picked this hotel. When I chose a hotel the most important thing I look at is how clean it is, this one fell short. I usually smell the linen for clorox which is what I suggest for this hotel. The breakfast was average but I appreciated the fact that it was free. Bread, cereals, juice, coffee, tea bananas and pastries.

I was very happy with my stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helped me with all my needs. They are in a great vacinity to Sea World and Ocean Beach. While i was there they were upgrading the rooms.

Very very nice hotel with awesome rooms, nice breakfast (could do better with the variery), perfect city location and above all a very welcoming hotel staff & receptionist (Anup). All the information required about how to best move around the city and what places to cover were given to us in first 10 mins on check in and that helped us, see the best places out there, with minimum fuss.

The rooms are superb at the given price (though other hotels in San Diego are way way much higher than this) and the facilities in the room are near perfect.

Definitely a very very nice place to stay in any situation - be it with family, friends or any one else.

This is a budget motel and it's not in a posh neighborhood, but it's extremely convenient to major SD locations. The superlative is a staff that really seems to care about the guests. So it was a 5 star staff in a 2 star lodging. Everything in the room worked and was in good condition and clean. I stayed for 6 nights, and every day the room was attended to perfectly. The towels were really thick not skimpy like every other budget motel I've stayed at. In fact there was nothing skimpy about this motel; it always seemed like they had gone a little bit beyond what you'd expect. The breakfast included many kinds of pastries and breads and cereals and fruit and decent coffee. I often come to SD on business and pleasure and this will be my first choice from now on. The San Marcos fires had resulted in a chaotic week for my family, and these people really blessed me with their true hospitality.

For this price range of $90 a night I expected a lot more. It was more like a cheap motel. The rooms were really old and dated. It's gross to think about when things are so dated. It did seem clean though. Beds were not that comfortable but the blankets were the cheap itchy uncomfy kind.
My biggest complaint, there was 0 privacy space so I had to have my brother step outside to change my clothes. There was a door to toilet and shower but it's small and too humid to dress after a shower.
This would have been easier with a couple but is NOT ideal for a family or mixed company.

Mattresses are really old and extremely hard. Floorboards have not been cleaned recently and hotel as a whole is nearing the need for a remodel. Breakfast has toast, bagels, varies pastries and watered down juices. Arriving at 3am, parking was available, however, spaces are really small barely fitting my Civic. Enough towels, service was good, rooms do get cleaned and linens changed. For $20 more a night, were headed to Holiday Inn for the remainder of our stay.
