What a great place to stay while visiting San Diego. We were in town for a work conference and decided to come out a few days early. Unfortunately the hotel for the conference was already booked up, so we had to fond a different place to stay for the xtra days. After an in-depth review on Trip Advisor and other...

Thanks for your review. Microwaves are not furnished in our rooms. But you can upgrade our stay to have a microwave added for $5 per night. Hopefully, next time you visit this will help meet all the needs of your family.

Fabulous. room with a very comfortable bed, easy access to lights, room for a laptop, free wi fi, cable tv, coffee maker in the room. I originally planned a one night stay. But, after discussing a discount rate with JESSE, I got...

This is a nice hotel that was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. A great price for families. My kids and I enjoyed their pool and spa. The area was kept quite clean. The staff were all very friendly and helpful in answering questions.

Stayed here for a few reasons, location being one, easy to get in and out of. But really it was actually one of the cheapest i found online, and most of the reviews were good too. Basic clean room, staff were friendly and about when you needed them. I can understand why this place is packed full on the weekend,...

I like to stay off of the beaten path - I don't like chain hotels. So I was thrilled to find this little gem just a few miles from the San Diego airport. Their intentional throwback to '60's motels was so fun! I felt transported to another decade of yor. The era of Mad Men and I Love Lucy. The...

This hotel reminds me of the 50's and 60's, even though I wasn't born yet. Rooms were clean and there was a small coffee maker and fridge. Jacuzzi and pool was nice and clean. Staff was pleasant. The Waffle Spot has the best waffles. Paula the waitress was great with a great personality.

My family and I spent the night and enjoyed the spectacular pool, both great restaurants, and the close proximity to everything anyone could want. The rooms are clean and comfortable with refrigerators, free Wi-Fi, and USB charging ports in the nightstands

I'm used to staying at large chain hotels but decided to try this place because it was close to where I was at. The reviews are accurate and this place tries to be the best they can. It's still a motel and not a hotel chain and seems a bit retro but why not every once in a while. They...
