Starting with a "parking lot" probably design for minicars, a room with a "unforgettable" smell, a "nice" view of a wall from your window, a bathroom that you have to remove the tp from the holder so you can"fit" and make sure no body tries to open the door because will hit your knees, a refrigerator that has a setting...

With San Diego hotels at full capacity, and tired after travelling, with no known nearby availability, we had little option but to accept a room at the Marina Inn. $249+taxes for a $20 experience. Comedy of errors. We should have booked ahead, I get it.

I book this hotel on 7/28-7/29 for the family trip but on 7/28 2pm, they text me that there an issue on my reservation and they want me to go to Relax Inn in El Cajon (25 min driving from downtown San Diego).

This place is a dump. The room was small, the a/c didn't work, there is no micro-wave,the wi-fi is a joke, limited parking, the fridge had one setting (frozen) , no pool and i had a view of the back wall of the hotel next door. This is just a few things on my list.

I would call this more a "motel" from appearance! During the day it was very loud between traffic, roadworks and nearby train and airport but at night it was fine and comfortable. The room was basic but would have expected a bit more for the price. Breakfast was offered although not much was OK. Around 10 min walk from the...

“Odd shaped table in room that didn't fit where it should be. Old beat up chair that wouldn't fit anywhere near the table. Old dresser with drawers that were always sliding out. Otherwise, good, clean room for the price and location.”
