I ended up at this hotel after getting a deal on hotwire. I wasn't very excited, but since I had already paid and it was the best deal I could find during comin con weekend, I figured I'd give it a shot. My husband and I arrived about 11:30 pm tired from a 5 hour drive. During check in she...

I had a booking for this location on the 5th July holiday weekend as we were visiting friends in town. For the sake of clarity, I raised my complaints with hotel staff on the day, and have since contacted Choice Hotels twice with no response. This hotel is unsafe, unclean and unsuitable for anyone with decency and self-respect to stay...

Wifi is great. I had 2 beds, the space is crowded inside the room. If all of their room set-up was like the one I had, I will never book again. Could hardly walk around the room. The male staffs are friendly; the daytime Filipina staff is a snob and never smiled!. She shouldn't be at any front desk job....

The pictures are misleading. This place was very dirty and un kept. I wore my flip flops to shower. There was no option at the time to stay elsewhere so I was stuck! To make things worse they gave my room away on the second night that I booked.

Ok, it's economy lodging but, it could really use a thorough cleaning. There's no excuse for a dirty place. It's a bit noisy because it's in a grocery store parking lot. Don't expect to sleep in . Having said all that we didn't have a bad stay because we liked the little town of Lemon Grove. And it's conveniently located...
