I’ve stayed in tons of hostels and budget motels in my lifetime. This one was for the books. It looked like it’s was from the 70’s and not in a cute way. The parking lot was full of sketchy people and rvs. Our room was so bad we just laughed at it. Sink was cracked. Bathroom filthy. No screen or lock on the window. When you open the curtains there was a broken exercise bike and a hideous view of the nasty pool, which I’m sure no one uses. It’s obvious that people live there, mostly of the tweaker kind. When we got there no one was even in the lobby. We had to ring the bell 5 times. Dude was semi friendly though. At night the place was totally infested with roaches. Tons and tons of them. I slept with all my clothes on. It was so disgusting. I’m surprised my car didn’t get broken into. Hotels.com wouldn’t even give me a refund. This place was $100 per night and honestly it should be like $20. Revolting. Please don’t stay here.

*sigh* Okay where do I begin. Well for starters when we got in our room it smelled horrible like someone had just smoked a bunch of cigarettes in the room. I had to go to the store and buy a bunch of air fresheners and candles. Then I go on the bed and it’s stained with what looks like pee and blood.... Yea gross right! Then later as I decided to shower the water would only go from extremely hot or intensely cold, no in between. On top of that the faucet to the sink broke and the pipes underneath leaked water into the entire room. If that isn’t bad enough our tv was super outdated and had static all on it. Later come to find out the housekeeper smokes cigarettes in the rooms as she cleans them. Plus our towels had hair and still were stained. The lobby smells bad and the manager is not all that friendly. You also have to pay a 50 dollar deposit but with how bad the stay is, I feel like they should pay YOU jus to be in that horrible place. I didn’t take the reviews seriously and I payed the price. So hopefully someone reads this and doesn’t think it’s a joke. DONT STAY HERE!!!!!

On our way back to Canada after visiting Arizona & Californian, we stopped at the America best Value Inn in San Diego, California. It was a very nice place. The rates were very good. Better then other places we stayed on our trip at almost twice the cost. Staff from Manager to Housekeepers were friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and quiet. You can walk to anywhere you need to go. It is a block off the freeway. We'll be back.

THis place is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed at! Terrible customer service! Both the lady and her husband were incredibly rude! We paid for late checkout and the latest was at 11:15 that they allowed us to stay. I hope you take these reviews seriously and do not spend your money on this terrible terrible location!!!
