Get ready to be nickled and dimed. They charge $22.54 in pet fees per night. They don't tell you about these fees just tell you to sign here and you have to read about the fees. They watch every move you make and call you about everything during your stay, so get ready to be stalked. Watch your bank account... More

Boltsfan, I think its fair to point out that we knew you were going to write a bad review because you told us that you wanted to extend your stay for 3 more days and you wanted a discounted rate on the already low rate you were paying and we told you that was not possible. We also clearly state... More

If you are traveling to San Diego in a budget that's a good place to stay. Located on the hotel circle, close to exit any expressway. Room is large and spotless clean. The continental breakfast is really poor. It's a good place to stay in a budget.

We will never stay here again. Booked our stay through Hotels.com and were charged $54 more for a Friday night than my parents who booked the same stay directly with hotel. I asked the general manager, Naom?, to adjust my bill and charge the same amount and he refused. Said he would only knock $18 off. We have stayed here... More

Hello, Your parents booked there room directly with us. We can offer the best rates if you book directly. The hotel has to pay the site you booked on a large commission for your reservation. This is why we cannot match the rate. However, I still gave you a discount. As explained while you were here. Booking direct is the... More

The hotel room was good, but there was a $1.50 per day surcharge for the room safe, my room did not have a safe, therefore I had to request the charge to be dropped. There were no vending machines on the property for snacks, rinks, etc., so one had to leave the property to get any type of snack or... More

This motel was exceptional value for money and was very clean and spacious. The beds were super comfy. Easy access to the No8 freeway but not too noisy.

We are big fans of this newly remodeled motel in hotel circle. They are so friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and newly renovated and stylishly decorated. Great location close to everything, great rates and parking is free. What more could you ask for?
