Selected this motel based on other reviews and to be fair, was told that the regular rooms were sold out and only an economy room was available. The room was in what seemed to be the original part of the motel, most likely built in the 1940's. The room was very small, with cheap furniture and an uncomfortable bed - you turn the closet light on by pulling a string! But it was very clean,the tiny bathroom had been updated, we were able to bring our dog and it was very inexpensive.
The breakfast room and breakfast itself was very good and the lobby and pool area were nice enough. Maybe I would have been happier with one of the newer rooms? I was disappointed in that you really could not walk to Old Town - this motel is located in an industrial area across from the transportation center and I would not have felt safe walking to Old Town from there.
We just drove down to SD for my boyfriend's, daughter's birthday dinner and just spent one night, so it was o.k. If you want an inexpensive and very basic room where you can bring your dog and have a decent breakfast - this place is for you. If you are on holiday and want to stay somewhere nice and updated, or within walking distance to Old town, I would pay a little more and choose someplace else.
