This is one of those locations that is a nice respite at the end of a long day of driving. On my journeys from El Paso to San Diego, El Centro allows me to "recharge" and drive into San Diego refreshed. This motel fits the bill. The staff is always pleasant and friendly and that alone makes a big difference.... More

My husband and I spent 8 nights here working and resting between business meetings around Escondido. This was the perfect place for us. The owners were so nice, and so was the housekeeping staff. Since we were staying a week, they gave us a large 2-room kitchenette for $55/night. It had a comfortable king bed, a tv in both rooms,... More

Family owned and operated. This little hotel tucked away in El Centro is quaint and charming. The staff are simply awesome. The complementary breakfast is great too.

Staff was very helpful. It wasn't stated anywhere that it was a 'pet friendly' hotel and my wife is extremely allergic. They tried their best to find a room that was not used for pets, but she could tell that it was. They upgraded our room to a 2 queen bed from a 1 king bed room The bed was... More

Traveling through El Centro on the way to Yuma, it was late and we need a place to stay that would take pets. We chose the Super 8, the price was right, the room was clean, the bed was OK and the shower worked. It allowed a dog but the breakfast was awful. Not much else to say.
