눉The room smelled a little upon arrival, slightly like cigarette, idk if it was because it was closed up, but turned on fan and maybe bring a can of air freshener if you can. It sucked I couldn't leave my car there while we went to the game at Qualcomm, we checked out the morning of the game, but Old Town has plenty of free parking, and the Caltrans parking lot is free public parking on weekends :) also, I wish there had been more lights at night to walk to Old Town, the area is kind of industrial. But during the day, the walk to Old Town is nice I imagine, I myself wouldn't do it at night, but I did see others walking at night, so to each his own, use your own judgment I suppose :) Also, if this is a one or two night thing for two adults or couple, it's perfect, but I wouldn't bring my kids here, the rooms are small, and it just doesn't have a family vibe, it's just a place to rest your head, and shower and use the restroom.
눇I was kind of worried about staying here due to all the negative reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised. While yes, this was not the Hilton or Hyatt, it was clean, basic, and served it's purpose. It was just a basic room to shower, rest, go to the bathroom, and the price reflects that. The parking lot in front as you drive in is tiny and narrow, but if you went to the back side of motel, there was plenty of space. I understand it would be inconvenient to have to walk a ways away if your room is in front, but if your concern is parking, around the back is the way to go. The train going by is loud, but I took a benadryl and didn't hear a thing and slept well lol. Bring your own shampoos and soap, they don't give much, just two itty bitty cakes, and if you shower in the evening and morning, probably bring a few extra towels of your own from home. But I will stay here again, location was very close by to old town, within walking distance, although we didn't walk at night over there, it's very dark, but during daytime hours it looks perfect. Also they are close by a great coffee shop called Perrys.
