    Room was super nice there was a250$ deposit, but when i was walking to my car there was a dirty syringe without a cap on the floor if i didn't notice it i might've stepped on it. For the price of the room i definetely shouldn't of seen that. I called management to let them know

    2nd Sweep
    The 1st time I stayed here I enjoyed it, but I lost my phone and still it hasn't been returned. Even though google shows that's the last place it was when it died as well as a pair of shoes that I left behind were never returned. So place is ok, but I just wished my things were returned and it still hasn't been

    Great value for money
    The hotel has great value for the price. Unlike many extended stay, it has daily house keeping. Professional cleaning staff, good customer service front desk. The environment Within the compound is beautiful. But do not expect top notch cleanliness and accommodations because this is not a 4 or 5 star hotel. Great value for money.

    Great budget gem
    This is a great place. Stayed here multiple times. Room quality can vary greatly. The one I had was a wifi deadspot. There are 3 wireless networks for the motel, and none would work in that room, but the front desk changed my room with not problem. The continental breakfast is great because they refill it. It's just cereal, and prepacked bagels, but you don't have to worry about not getting anything for being late. The staff is courteous, room was clean. Across the street from good eats and a 24h gas station next door for emergency stuff and snacks.

    once you settle in its good.
    too much to touch ..buttons latches everywhere .you will feel like a bad person when you check in. I am sure its for a reason but excessive.

    It seems small when you pull in,but there is an inner courtyard that is very pretty. I like that it is locked at night and you have to have a code to enter.

    San Diego stay
    For a one night stay it was adequate. All the staff were excellent and helpful. No elevator available but we were fine. Just an older hotel that reminded me of ole San Diego. Bed and pillows were comfy.

    Mixed Review
    This is an fairly large older motel. The shower could not be turned on. Later the clerk said the handle must be pulled extremely hard, but this was not stated at check in so no shower. The unit had a kitchen with micro, small stove and refrigerator. However there are no cooking utensils at all. Hotel description does not state this but gives the impression one can use the kitchen area.
