We just left this hotel today and am glad that we did. They were doing constant construction right outside of our room, and Friday evening our air conditioner begun making loud noises. When I called the front desk I was told that the maintenance man was gone for the day and they had no extra rooms. The front desk clerk...

I didn't receive bottled water at check-in (see Jan. 2011 review), but I felt very satisfied with the room and overall accommodations for the money outlay. The location is very quiet, is convenient to highway 15 and has a restaurant next-door. The property is just slightly southwest of the main city-portion of Escondido, less than 1/2 mile off highway 15....

I arrived late at night, desperately needing a place to sleep. I paid cash and went to my room. The room smelled horrible - like mold or something. So I went back to ask for another room. Same thing. These are old rooms - everything is old and creepy, and the smell is horrible. There was no way I was...

I stayed here for 5 nights with 3 of my colleagues (each of us had a room) since all other hotels in the neighborhood were booked. Pros: 1) Not too far away. 2) Cheap (Relatively) 3) Smoking rooms 4) Free Wi-Fi. Decent speed, but not too fast. 5) A great mexican restaurant (Hacienda De Vega) literally 25 yards away, provided...

I've booked this hotel because it was close to the San Diego Wild Animal park, which we visited the next day. I've only paid 50,- for the room, so didn't expect much. I was wrong. The staff was friendly, but what amazed us, were the rooms. They were really nice and spacious. Yes, everything was old, and yes, there was...

I stayed at this motel while visiting Escondido on a business/family trip. The staff was excellent, very accommodating and helpful. The room was very (!) large with a microwave/fridge and kitchen (no pots/plates/utensils though; I didn't ask for them though because I had no time to cook anyway). The location is right off the freeway but very quiet. Trader Joes...

I stayed here for a night because we were going to the wild animal park early the next day. The front desk was really nice and friendly. Also, my husband had bought a bottle of wine but forget to bring his opener but the front desk man had one and kindly let us use his. Easy check in and check...

I would recommend this place to people who are looking for a nice clean place. The room was simple, I liked it because of the convenience to the freeway, as I was there on work. I liked coming back to my room at night and it was very quiet, I am assuming it was because the hotel was located in...
