“Very Nice Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

I got here a bit early in the afternoon but the clerk (I think he was the owner) said if the room is ready you can have it. Luckily it was ready so I was able to check in right away, nice! And he was very friendly yet professional. The room was nice as it was roomy and it was clean. The hot water at the sink and tub came quickly which was nice. I was on the third floor and there was no elevator so that was a bit of a bummer. It had a nice kitchen counter with full size sink and a dual hot plate along with a nice frig, microwave and coffee maker. The only thing is that that area is very dark so if you're trying to use it prior to sun up or after sun down there's no light in the area and it's very very dark.
The cleaning schedule is kind of screwy. Someone would come and take the dirty towels early in the AM but did not clean the room. When I returned to the room the first day and found this I just hung the do not disturb sign on the door since I had a lot of work to do and decided I would live without the bed being made. The next morning when I was leaving at 8:30 I found a maid down the hall. I went and spoke to her and explained that I was leaving then but would be returning shortly after lunch. I'd again have a lot of work to do in the afternoon so could she please clean my room early. I guess there was a breakdown in communication as when I returned at 1:30 the dirty towels had been removed and the bed had been stripped and that was it. I called the front desk and explained. They told me the maid was just finishing lunch and would be up there shortly. She was and finished cleaning the room, replaced the towels and made the bed. She did nice work but I just wished it could have been done sooner.

Room Tip: There's no elevator so if you don't want to lug your luggage upstairs request a room on a lo...

Entirely suitable if you are pinching pennies in this expensive area. As a road warrior I just expect more. Front desk people friendly, breakfast the same everyday. Carls Jr across parking lot is only walkable food.
Clientele what you would expect from cut rate hotel.
So if you are in your on money- perfect. On expense account - spend more for upgrade at Holiday Inn across street.

This budget-priced motel near the Miramar Air Station is quite adequate for a few-night stay in the San DIego area if you don't want to pay downtown prices. The front-desk clerk was very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean enough, although the carpet could have used a shampoo. The breakfast was very good, especially for the class of motel this is. Interior corridors are a security plus. The room has lots of mirrors, including a large full-length one, helpful in checking your appearance before leaving for the day. Fridge was larger than in most motels and included a freezer. Air conditioning worked well. Yes, it was a little noisy, but I considered it good "white noise" to block out sounds from guests on the other side of thin walls. It would be nice if there were an elevator, but being forewarned, I requested a room no higher than the 2nd floor and got along okay. Also being forewarned about possible musty smell (which I did experience), I brought Febreze air freshener and got along fine.There is a large shopping area within 3 miles and a fast-food restaurant in the parking lot. Overall, I'd stay here again if all I planned to do was sleep.

I have stayed at this place before and swore I wouldn't be back, but it was a good rate and it was just one night. And because of the other reviews, I figured I would try it again. Makes me wonder if I stayed at the same place as them!
For starters let's talk about what wasn't good. No elevator. So if you have a bad back like me, 3rd floor isn't fun. Luckily I packed light for one night. Coffee maker was broken - the top filled up with water so had to go downstairs for my coffee. My room smelled awful! I was afraid I wouldn't be able to sleep it was so bad. Not sure what it was from. The place is run down, dirty, and needs repairs badly. The room they gave me was at the top of the stairs immediately to the left and was next to some kind of supply room. I'm a rewards member with them and this was the best room they had for me?? I heard everything outside my door. The guy behind the front desk wasn't too friendly and the guy in the morning was very hard to understand. Getting out of this place at busy times of day is very difficult because the light at Miramar is so long. Be prepared and add an extra 5 or 10 minutes to your trip because I had to wait through 2 light changes to get out.

There were some positives to be fair. The beds weren't bad, the pillows were actually pretty decent. Always nice having a fridge and microwave in the room. I didn't eat breakfast there, but it was the standard free breakfast with waffles too, so seemed ok. Oh, the shower pressure was excellent! That's about it. I think I was generous with an Average rating, but took into account some of the positives along with the decent rate I got for the area. But I will not stay here again and this time I mean it.

Room Tip: Dont choose the room at the top of stairs on the third floor to the left. Can't remember the nu...

Stayed here a couple of times when I'm in town and i love this place! such a great deal when you book ahead. This place is always clean and staff is very welcoming.The amenities are very convenient, mini fridge and microwave. There's free wifi and big TV. Very comfortable beds as well most places I've stayed beds are usually very uncomfortable but not here. Parking is also very convenient and location is awesome. Plenty of nearby restaurants to go eat, there are plenty of other hotels around the area but overall for the quality and environment is definitely worth the price. . Read someones review on the odor of the room, I've stayed here handful of times throughout the year and never experienced a "acrid smell" Rooms seem to always be well kept and neat never smelly. Hope my review helped! definitely give it a chance

Room Tip: Higher floors seem to be the most quiet but overall they are still great.

I visited this hotel with a friend because it was the cheapest we could find in San Diego that was also pet friendly, and I was not expecting it to be as nice as it is for as cheap as it is. Everything was really nice, staff included. There's a microwave and mini fridge in the room, as well as a big tv. There's free wifi, and free biscuit. Staying here is a great decision.
