Emma, us1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Decent stay.
The stay was good but the room had a musty smell. Maybe someone smoked in it? Not the workers faults. When I needed to use Wifi for work, it would disconnect here and there. Room service is really good and I noticed that the workers are kind and very hard working.

Good value
Overall ok. No microwave available in room or in lobby. Room was clean and comfortable. Wifi was decent. 3 story building and one elevator, but if you are in an end room, it will be a bit of a walk. Friendly staff and front.Next to great food options.

Great hotel and restaurant next door!
We stay 2 times. First at start of trip and again at the end of our trip. The 1st night our TV wouldn’t work or the lights and outlets on the bed side. We were late coming in (about 11:30pm) so didn’t bother reporting it. The 2nd stay was great. No complaints except that the breakfast wasn’t being served because of COVID - 19. The Havana Grill next door was a Great find. We had a delicious Cuban meal. I will stay and eat at both places the next time I am in town.

Good for the Price
Good room for the price, wasnt expecting five star for the price i wanted to pay. Bed was confortable, room was clean, nothing fancy but serviceable. Would stay here again and probably will in the future since it is close to ucsd.

Good for the price.
This is a older hotel. The management has obviously put some effort into upgrades. Our room had vinyl plank floor which I prefer to carpet, especially in inexpensive hotels in beach cities. There was tissue stuffed into two holes in the door where view holes once we're and there was a little rust on a lamp and the toilet paper holder. Overall it was a good value.

Short SD Visit to Sleep Only
Our family used two rooms. The rooms were clean, and I liked that the floors are laminate versus carpet. The rooms are non-smoking and do not have balconies. Many people stood outside their rooms smoking and there were cigarettes left outside on the ground. One of our rooms reeked of cigarette smoke when we checked in, and the gentleman at the front desk was quick to apologize and get us a new room. The entrances to enter the motel are a bit tight. One entrance leads into parking spots and the other is a one-way enter/exit. I could see larger cars or trucks struggling if it is a full lot. The front desk was able to provide toothbrushes for my son, as he forgot one at home. The continental breakfast was good and the area was clean. There was a waffle maker (with good size waffles), yogurt, granola, cereal, fruit, etc. If you stay with your family (kids), I would just note that the walls are quite thin. You can hear through the walls next to you making explaining adult activities interesting. But overall, it was a decent stay.
