The nights inn is a very nice get away. They are very attentive to the guests and the rooms are comfortable. The nights inn has very nice staff and it is a much better choice then the lame motel 6 next door. I have often stayed here and I love the stay here

A mile from the International border with Mexico, walking distance from major shopping and dining, and an easy drive from the best sight-seeing and beach-going in the San Diego area, it is ideally located for a great So-Cal adventure.
