I was visiting San Diego from Hermosa and ended up staying in town longer than expected and had to look for a place to sleep. Booked a cheap one just for a night. You pay cheap but has nothing especial. Can't say much but is a old regular hotel. The good thing is an spacious room with double queen bed...

The owners are always so nice and the beds are comfortable. We've stayed there a number of times with no issues, but this time I killed 5 small cockroaches and a number of tiny buggies in and on the toilet 😝 This was the first time we've stayed downstairs and I don't know if that made a difference. Also the...

Attended a holiday party in San Diego and rather than drive all the way home afterwards, we decided to stay in the local area for the night. I researched the motels in La Mesa and after reading the reviews, settled on the Days Inn & Suites (SDSU). I booked a room online and the room rate was reasonable ($63.53 for...

Thank you very much for choosing to stay with us recently, and for reviewing your stay. Taking a security deposit is very common practice for hotels throughout the US, and rather than assuming that guests will cause damage in the room, it is for any incidental charges that they may incur in the bar, restaurant or on the telephone. Unfortunately,...

Upon check in found that they are in the middle of a major renovation. This would be ok if guests were told this in advance. Property full of dust and workers, not able to relax. Carpet in bedroom had black sticky messy gummy black material on it. Got feet black. Was able to work with it by putting a large...

Where to start... Let's see, had to sign a 'No Smoking' waiver, which was fine, except that the room (108) oozed and reeked of decades of smoking. All the furniture, carpets, painted walls and popcorn ceilings need to be replaced. Mattress needs replacing; like two pieces of cardboard with marshmallow in the middle. All lights are on timers which caused...

Cockroaches, hair dryer did not work, only one TV controller for two TVs in separate rooms, short sheeted bed, all linens thread bare, office hostess who could DO NOTHING about our complaints, refused to refund the price of our room. Could not check out soon enough.

I'm shocked to hear about your experience with us. This is not the usual comment we receive from guests. But we have looked into this issue to ensure this does not happen again. Our staff should have sent someone to look into this right away and should have fixed this issue or given you another room to ensure you had...
