We stayed for three nights when visiting San Diego in early November. The place was easy to find. Check in was quick and smooth. We got a quiet room on the third floor - as requested. The room was spacious and clean, queen bed comfortable. Nice sun terrace close to our room. Only negative about this place is WiFi which...

Eventually, the WiFi will be complimentary. The good news is that it is inexpensive, and the provider allows up to four devices for cost of one. Also, the WiFi signal has been upgraded twice within the past year making it very fast. I have been known to refund the cost of the WiFi if really becomes an issue.

Stayed here on my son's recommendation. Overall..............it's OK. Positives first. Very friendly and helpful front desk. Motel grounds are well maintained, room was clean,and bed was comfortable. This place is located close to beach on the main drag. Negatives. Parking is limited, WIFI is $6.00, and breakfast limited to donuts. If you've been to Pacific Beach you'll know there is...

The parking is and will always be an issue for us. When they built this property, underground parking was not constructed, and I guess street parking was not an issue. As you know, street parking can ne an issue during the busy times, and even our overflow parking at our sister property can become full. I know the breakfast is...

Thank you again for having such a great place to come and stay! We love it here. Always great staff, clean rooms and hot coffee in the morning! The grounds are also very well kept up. The rates are very fair and even better with a AAA discount! 😀

I stayed here for a night while visiting San Diego with my husband. This hotel is walking distance from so many bars and restaurants on Pacific Beach. It's also less than a block from the beach and on the nicer end of the beach. As for the hotel, it was clean and updated but would consider it more a economy...

I agree that the location is almost perfect. Many guests never drive once they check in with us, as there are so many options for entertainment and dining within walking distance.

The room is clean and the location is amazing. We walked to the beach. Lots to see nearby. The staff is super friendly and gave great suggestions for things to do and places to eat. Everything we need is in walking distance. Parking spaces are tight but manageable.

We booked here for a last minute celebration for my daughters birthday and were quite happy with it. This is a great affordable hotel steps from Pacific Beach. You really can't beat the location for the price. The rooms are simple but have everything you really need, including a microwave and fridge. There is free parking, if their lot is...

We do hope to see you again. I'm glad you had a nice simple solution to the firmness of your mattress. I get mixed responses about the mattresses, mostly positive, but have had extra blankets placed on an occasional bed due to this issue. Thank you very much for your review.

This resort was a nice place to stay. The room was great size and comfortable to be in. The bed was comfortable but we did not care for the pillows but nothing beats personal pillows. There was an outside sitting area that was nice to sit at when we picked up dinner and brought it back to the resort. The...

I am sorry about the limited parking. This only occurs about four or five times a year when even our sister property is full. We do hope to see you again, and I will be sure that they do not forget about placing our choices of two juices out as well. Thank you for your review.

I was looking for an affordable motel, close to the Pacific beach and this seemed to tick all the boxes. Upon arrival the receptionist was warm and welcoming. The room was basic (which is what we were after) but was clean, spacious and had all the amenities we required including a microwave in the room, a fridge and TV. Bed...

Most over priced place we have ever experienced. Tiny rooms, plug in the bathroom sparked every time it was used, unsafe hair dryer provided along with another that didn't work, no free wifi (shocking in this day and age), lots of street noise even on the third floor, hard mattresses, staff were irritated and grumpy when we asked any questions,...

Thank you for your review. I am very surprised to read about what you said regarding sparking. Since we renovated, there has never been a comment about something like that. We also double-paned the windows being that some of our rooms are located close to Mission Blvd. I honestly do not know what happened to make you not like anything,...

Disappointed. We had to move rooms 3 times. The first 2 rooms had a very pungent gas/sewer smell that got worse when we ran the water. The 3rd room we got moved to was already "someone else's". We had to move again and was treated very poorly by the staff and they threatened to check us out. Not once did...

Of course, we do apologize for the smell and the multiple moves. This is a problem we are currently working on getting resolved very soon, so it should not be a factor very soon. Thank you for trying us. We hope you will change your mind.
