It was a horrible stay. I am not exaggerating you can check the pictures that I have added. I don't know how they got so many positive reviews!! The room and the bathroom were dirty and stinky. Water in washbasin was pouring to the carpet..It was unbelievable..There was a sunflower seed in the towel!!! If you check the negative reviews...

Thanks for getting our attention. Yes the room you stayed needed a little maintenance. It was overlooked due to the motel sold out every single day. Our maintenance department has aknowledge all of these and repaired and resolved all of these issues. Management

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. It was a very pleasant stay. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The manager Yogi was very helpful and very pleasant to deal with. We would definitely stay there again. Book your reservation online and you get a lower price. We paid 49.95 per night for...

Reserve it on their website, and you can't touch $49 per night for a very decent place anywhere else the San Diego area. Very convenient right off I-5, yet you don't notice the freeway noise at all. Very nice and accommodating manager, clean, fresh, and generous room furnishings. A very enjoyable 3-night stay, with easy access to friends and major...

After having cancer treatment in Mexico I was too exhausted to drive 4 hours home so I pulled into this hotel to get some sleep. The expression, "Don't judge a book by it's cover" definitely applies in this case! The walkways (no indoor corridors) are very shabby and dirty looking due to the very well worn outdoor red carpet.
