Score from 643 reviews Good 7.1/10
Our room was dirty. The bath area floor was visibly dirty and our shoes stuck to the floor. The breakfast was average, but no fresh fruit. The hot tub was barely warm, dirty and only half the jets worked.
The cleaning person was really great in cleaning our rooms
the pool wasnt heated. It wouldve been nice if it was
it was cheap, and the room has everything needed for a short stay.
It was noisy from highway traffic. I had to turn on the fan to sleep more easily.
Reasonable rate, room had microwave and refrigerator, and free breakfast.
Hotel is next to freeway so a little noisy.
clean room parking for free

clean. The cleaning staff are all kind.
Cheap Convenient to public transport Clean and comfortable enough
The bed was super comfy, the pillows were nice, everything was clean. The tv was awesome and new style...everything was super cozy and nice loved it !
Nothing I didn't like
the room layout the digital cable and the breakfast option
It was close to the freeway.
The beds need to be replaced, they have spots where you sink in and the AC didn't work.
Close to attractions in San Diego.
The neighborhood was not safe.
Very convenient, room was clean, bed was soft, fridge kept the beer cold. Place is close to the 5 fwy on and off ramps. Only 10 min drive to Gaslamp.
