Close to the sea
I shipped packages ahead of my stay to the hotel. The staff received, and held them in a secure location until my arrival. They were prompt in answering my questions and answered their phones within two rings every time I called the front desk. The frequent room discounts found online and through AAA also make this hotel an incredible value.
The staff was incredibly rude and disrespectful.
Wi fi works but not on5 th floor
wi fi on 5 th floor didnt work, but very comfy bed, nice room and bathroom, and amazing option free breakfast! Very great breakfast!
I stayed there for 1 night between my flights. I guess I was just unlucky with everything... First - the person in the desk was a guy who was very unfriendly. He gave me the key of the room and told me - go outside and next door. I went outside, looked for the next door... totally dark, and in the end, I just didn't figure it out. I went back to the reception - he told me again: next door. It would have been nice if he'd showed me - he saw I can't figure it out myself. But he didn't, just kept telling me "go next door". In the end, it was not the next door, but 2nd next door and it was closed! I had to figure it out myself that he had written a code for my key-card; but was it difficult for me to explain it for the first place?!? I was quite shocked about that service. However, a few days later, I came back (not through booking.com) and all the reception people were really nice. So it must have been just a bad day. The second problem was the night... namely people were fighting just behind my door. Yes, it was Friday night and I guess people had been drinking. But it was 3 am and I tried to get some sleep! They were shouting over a girl, really helpless... and you hear every single word inside as the windows are not insulated. I even felt a little bit scared. Noone came to tell to those people to be quiet, and it went on at least for half an hour. I didn't sleep at all during this night.
The room was clean, but very small. The bed was comfortable. Very good location - just 15 minutes walk everywhere in the town. Airport is close, too.
wet restroom, small bed , small room
We ended up changing rooms because the AC wasn't working in our first room. The second room we got was one the same level. I wish j could have changed the beds. The first room, the bed was comfortable. The second was very uncomfortable. It made tons of noise and it felt like it was gonna fold in half.
Really enjoyed this hotel. The room was small but was comfortable for the two of us.
Our room had a fridge, microwave and coffee maker, which I liked. The room was small but clean and was all we needed as a base to sleep. There was free street parking in front, but sometimes was limited for space. Drive to Coronada beach was only 15 mins, to Old Town was 10 mins and we went to outlet mall in San Ysidro which was only 20 mins. Free breakfast was basic, but still ok. Just bagels, pop tarts and oatmeal, with juice or coffee.
On Sunday morning at three am there was a lot of people that made noise they were screaming and shouting and stuff didn't bother to tell them anything. I stood there for two nights and they didn't clean my room. So dissappointed. I didn't like the fact that this hotel don't have parking
the location of the hotel close to shops
No internet connection in any room, we changed 2 rooms but wireless was almost zero signal. We can not listen even music from internet :(
Motel has a nice garden where you can see some green.
so many airplanes arrived... wooowiiiingggg
had all the stuffs necessary + FREE WIFI ZONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I didn't have one bad experience. The facility could've used a paint job, but it didn't bother me.
Free breakfast & water. Staff was very friendly.
The manager is rude and does not have good customer service skills (social skill). I said hello and smiled and he said "I'm not ready for you yet" with a stern face. I felt like he could of handled that differently. Also, the person in front of us was asking questions and he did not seemed helpful at all. He needs to smile and change his voice tone.
I liked the price, location, and the double bed was comfortable enough for my husband and I (we are big).
The hotel was near the airport and planes would take off right overhead, but this was mostly during the day so it didn't disturb sleep. Since this hotel is a short walk from Downtown districts, we did have to walk by a fair amount of homeless people. However, this is to be expected in any city and if it is a real issue for other travelers they can avoid it by renting a car.
The hotel was within walking distance to Downtown, the water front, Little Italy, the Gaslamp District, and public transportation (including the train station for Amtrak and Coaster). The continental breakfast was convenient, if very standard (bagels, pastries, juice). The rooms were clean and a little small. But since we didn't spend much time in our hotel this wasn't a problem.
That there is no hotel parking so you have to drive around 1 way streets looking for parking even in the middle of the night.
This hotel room was small but clean and exceeded my expectations. It even included a miniature kitchen. Honestly it was a great price and great value. I would highly recommend this hotel.
All, especially the reception staff.
Feel like at home.
Amenities were extremely lacking, specifically, we could not connect to the wifi. Also, the coffee from the continental breakfast tasted absolutely terrible.
The staff were great.
A bit of a rough neighborhood. Right in the airport landing path.al Little ants.
Price was good. near the zoo. close to downtown
gay ear ring staff man at reception. Room window broken & they refused moving us to another room. No parking so defeats purpose of staying there at all!
No parking on site but easy to find a free park every day within 5 minute walk for the 6 days we stayed. Room a little small but good facilities and great value.
Really nice place within walking distance to downtown (15 min) and Balboa park (10min) lovely garden and great breakfast. Really good value one of the best places we stayed in 3 months around the U.S.
Our stay was pleasant. The staff was friendly and helpful. I loved how close it was to the downtown area. We'll be back soon and hopefully for a longer visit.
Reception girl Room size
Breakfast OK, but basic - only prepackaged food, including instant oats - no fresh milk. Shower could only be set to hot or cold - off was in between hot and cold so you couldn't seem to adjust the settings.
Location a little out of the way, but could walk to public transport, Balboa Park and the Gaslamp District. Room clean, but not very big. Wi fi good, staff helpful.
Noisy aircon, unencrypted WiFi
Good price, OK overall comfort and location, friendly staff
