It was clean but just super small room. If you plan on spending a lot of time in the room its crowded especially with kids but Perfect location by the boat harbor, right between sea world and the zoo.

Thank you for staying with us Tesha. My staff and I are pleased we were able to provide a great location for your family fun. If we may be of service, please check out our kitchen room, the square footage is 1.75 times the size of our traditional guestroom. We are grateful for your review.

The hotel location was nice & quiet. The hotel was a little run down & old but it was ok. The front desk was nice & helpful. The kitchenette was great especially with 3 hungry boys! The bathroom was small & the free breakfast wasn't the greatest! I thought I paid a lil too much for what it was worth..

This hotel is average. The staff is great! The location is very good. Due to the location it can be VERY loud. This is an OLD hotel that has fine beds, a nice pool area & free parking. So, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for!

Clean, quiet and so affordable. Vagabonds from the 60's and 21st century dreamers, will love this property. Located right off the wharf, and the boardwalk. it is an easy stroll to the day's caught -- if you like fresh fish and cold beer. It was a treat to dine, and watch the men return from the big boats.

I enjoy staying here as I travel socially on a bicycle. This motel is centrally located to all my favorite places. Never need a car; walking distance to the best restaurants in the Marina area. My room is always clean with plenty of pillows and a pleasant staff. Small pool but warm.

We were disappointed when we arrived at the Motel as it did not quite live up to the hype on the website. Nothing bad about the place, just average and the rooms looked quite dated. Staff were friendly, pool nice breakfast good and excellent location. The only negative was/is the noise insulation between rooms. We stayed two nights and heard...

Although the staff was nice to us, the place was less than mediocre. We found dirty pillow cases and sheets with hairs. The bathroom sink releases foul odor. Equipment inside the room were dusty. Carpet was dirty.

Always stay here due to the location. Great for sailing regattas at nearby San Diego Yacht Club. The staff are friendly and hotel layout is very convenient. In fact we have found the location within walking distance to many restaurants.

“The room itself was very nice, we had the kitchenette above the office, but it gets loud with traffic since it fronts Scott St. Nothing can be done about that except for us to specifically request the other kitchenette when we need a larger room.”
