The room was clean and comfortable with adequate space for such affordable price. Excellent customer service from every host/hostess I encountered(Bobby, Jamie, Jasmine, Alicia, Daryl).

I enjoyed my stay immensely at this hotel. From Bobby's winning service attitude, to the cute fountain in the middle of the hotel, to the comfortable beds, this place is a winner for travelers who are both on a budget but in the know about the essential qualities of an excellent hotel.

It's a good place to stay. Economical and has all the basic amenities. Services and staff are great. Specially Randall, he helped me out when I couldnt find my room key. He was very patient and understanding. He was also very helpful in suggesting me great places to visit in San Diego.

I was in town for a friends wedding, and one of my friends recommended this hotel because of the cheaper price. I really regret booking at this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, no complaints with them. The biggest issue was the tiny room, and bugs. Another group of friends also checked in at the same hotel and told...

Not knowing the greater San Diego area we decided on this locale because it was more economical for our vacation budget. We arrived after 10:00 pm after a cross country flight and found that we would be able to rest in a plain, yet comfortable room. The decor was reminiscent of the seventies style. The continental breakfast was as expected,...
