If you are crossing into Mexico on foot, this is the #1 hotel in San Diego. Though rooms are a bit small, they are well appointed, immaculate and the Front Desk is terrific! Shopping and food abound. Most important you can walk right into Mexico in 5 minutes!!!

The room smelled a little, I thought the elevator was going to drop, and the closest restaurant was 7-11. Despite all of this, I give it a 3. It's reasonably priced, as clean as it can be, and it is walking distance to the border. Check in, and hang on to your valuables.

This is a budget hotel within walking distance to the Mexico border. It was fine to spend the night but obviously don't have high expectations: *Good value: I stayed here during Comic Con and paid a fraction of the hotels in Downtown and also got free parking during my day trip to Tijuana so it was a very good deal....

Thank you for all the feedback, we would like to first say that we rent out all of our rooms daily so it is surprising that there would be dust on any of our pillows, however since we do rent our rooms daily the linen can get worn, please in the future here or at any hotel, just ask to...

If you want a place close to the San Ysidro crossing to Tijuana, this is a good place. It is not a great hotel by any stretch, but it surely does the trick on a budget. And if you are basically just sleep, then go have some fun in the area or over the border, then this place makes a...

Well, after reading some of the reviews I was a little worried staying here; but I booked it as it was convenient and within walking distance to the Mexican border. Check in was quick and friendly.

My family stayed here for a week during a trip to San Diego. We stayed here to save money so we could have a nice vacation. The staff was nice and helpful, although there were a lot of issues.

We stayed at the Rodeway Inn after a lovely day trip to Baja California. The room had no towels and when I reported it the desk clerk he said we stole the towels and will be charged for them. I have lodged a complaint with Choice Customer Service. I can not recommend this lodging due the way we were treated.
