The employees were very helpful. The walks around the building on each floor had carpeting that was coming up. The room we had, the carpet was sticky, bathroom area was passable clean, the fridge was not plugged in so items could be kept cold as it takes a while for it to get cold, and finally the TV in the...

Upon booking the EZ 8, we were unsure what to expect, however upon arriving to Chula Vista (rather late due to a detour through National City- think of some different street names, So Cal! haha) we called for directions from the exit and Ken was more than delightfully helpful. The check in process was a bit long, but thorough. Ken... More

An easy stop if you cannot go any further, but is noisy due to the freeway being close by. It is cheap, that is for sure, but we would not go again unless all else was booked. The room was seriously dirty.

seriously, you can go to this hotels website like I did and book a weekend room for $47. The hotel photos they show does not depict the nasty area this hotel is located in. This place is right across from a nasty trailer park and the other side is right up on the freeway. The police frequently driving threw the... More

Booked a stay at what turned out to be this fleabag dump. The price was cheap. The jerk at the check-in window (high crime area requires you to deal with them through a bullet-proof glass after 8 pm) was rude, disrespectful and crude. When you book as I did, and request a non-smoking room. what they shoved in my face... More

We stayed here for Comic Con, because it was cheap for the 4-Day event. Other places were charging $1000 for 4 days. We arrived like six hours early, and they allowed us to check in. The staff was friendly and very helpful! :) The hotel was only 15 minutes from the convention so it wasn't too bad. We rented a... More

This past weekend, my boyfriend and I stayed here because we had single day passes for Comic Con. By the time we received our badges, it was too late to book a hotel close to the Convention Center unless we paid something crazy, like $600.

This hotel is in the ghetto. I worried about my car being left outside. The worst part of this hotel is how you can hear every word the neighbors are saying CLEARLY. The chance are great you will get loud people next door who are awake and loud very late. Stay away.
