I stayed here for 5 nights in the middle of November 2016. This would have been a nice stay if it was just for a night or two, a weekend stay. I say this because there's no oven/stove for cooking meals. There are fast-food places near by, but it's far from anything else. However, if you plan on crossing into...

We stayed at this location during the Thanksgiving holiday and were pleasantly surprised. It is located near the border out of the way in a secluded business park. At first I thought it was weird, but then I liked being out of the way in a safe area. The hotel has been recently remodeled. We had a 2/queen room which...

This hotel is right next to the CBX Otay, so this gives you a good place to stay if you get to the CBX pretty late at night. The place is comfy and has a good breakfast for the price. Has swimming pool. The staff is the greatest they will try wathever to please you.

“Rooms on the first floor are somewhat dark, opt for higher levels. Make sure you are stocked up on snacks - not much available around. Gas prices around that area are high. So gas up before you get there.”
