This is like an extended stay apartment style building, but a motel. Not good for little kids.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice size room, nice grounds, very outdated"
Most of the staff was nice but there were a few who were not very pleasant. The room was a nice size overall but was very outdated. Old furniture tiny tube tv decorations need to be updated. The grounds were very nice but with the hotel being so big it's hard to find your way around at first and to pick a door to go in from outside. Overall it's a nice […] hotel for the price and it's pretty close to a lot of places. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice for the price"
Very good service! I was able to check in very early, everyone I talked to was very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value in a high cost city"
This hotel worked out great for us. It is further from downtown but nothing is far, the beaches, Coronado Island, Mexico. The hotel accessories (TV, air conditioner, etc) were older models but they all worked just fine. The refrigerator/freezer worked great and got much colder than the units popular now in higher end hotels. The hotel has pretty flora […] on the walkways between the buildings with a great pool and hot tub. The clientele seem to be a mix of short term visitors and longer stay residents. The breakfast buffet items included packaged items and fresh fruit. It worked. The room was very clean. Being an older hotel the walls seemed to be thicker and we heard nothing from our neighbors or the housekeeping closet next door. The management was very helpful with specific room requests and advice on what to see in San Diego. A great trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"GOT THE JOB DONE"
We were only in SD for a couple nights to complete at a competition. The host location was down the street. Overall the room was clean, did not smell weird (as most of these places do), had a functional mini-kitchen and was comfortable and suited our needs. The only negitive aspect of the room was the shower head was too low for my height (5'6") and […] required some manuvering. Overall this hotel is like a little appartment complex. The staff is kind and enthusiastic. We are definately staying here again when the time comes for the next tournament. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great! Better than I expected by far!"
when we checked in the man at the front desk was cheerful, helpful,and overall fantastic. The hotel room was clean and tidy,the pool and hot tub were nice except that they close at 10 p. M. :-(.overall the place could use a slight facelift but the amenities were amazing. When I reserved the hotel I didn't even expect a fridge, stove, or microwave in […] my room and they were there, so that was a pleasant surprise. My biggest concern, was the shower pressure was terrible, and it kept going from hot to cold to hot to cold. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pictures are deceiving"
I thought this place was aweful. Had to constantly ask for room service to get the room cleaned and new towels. 5pm in the day and was gone all day, room still dirty. Had to go to desk myself to get new towels. Some of the worst service I've ever had!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"one of the best"
I would return one of the best I've stayed inGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The quaintness of this hotel is that it is old. Suites? We think not. Having a counter, microwave and refrigerator doesn't constitute a suite. Nice restaurants were within driving distance. The front desk staff was fabulous - kind, efficient and willing to go the extra mile to help. A large number of the people seemed to be permanent residents.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice room and the kids loved the pool and spa. When we booked we were assured it had two beds but when we got there we were told our reservation was for a one bed room, luckily the receptionist was very helpful and rectified the mistake. Close to Mission Bay and Seaworld.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy access to evethings that we need."
Convenient location, well maintaned, room was cleaned. Another words, clean and affordable, would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The breakfast had only bagels and Cheerios. No sweet rolls.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and comfortable for a cheap rate."
This is an older hotel, the rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. The room had a small fridge, microwave, hair dryer, tv. Close to all the major expressways. Many places to eat nearby. The downside, they have no free wifi, charge for it by the day which is $7.00, not a good deal by any means. Rooms a bit small but not that big of a deal. […] Could use new carpet in the hallways. Only one ice machine by the pool which is not convienent by any means. The coffe maching was or has been broken for quite some time according to the desk staff, so instant coffee was what they offered instead of getting a couple $10 coffee makers from Walmart or something. The variety of breakfast foods was decent, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, bagels, cereal. No jelly, bread, cream cheese, just butter. But hey I only paid $50 a night so it worked for me. Would I pay more, no way! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not bad for an overnight stay Nothing fancy"
This is an old hotel with old furnishing. The GFI breaker even tripped when we turned the light switch off in the bathroom. The A/C was struggling and noisy and mounted high on the wall so all the cold air was directed to the ceiling. The room never got very cool but it was tolerable. In order to turn the cooler on, you have to flip a switch on a wall […] then go across the room to the A/C, climb on the night stand and turn the controls. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The front desk people were friendly. The breakfast was strictly a just fruit, cereal and juice and coffee. The lobby had nice cold water available all the time and that was nice. We were going to an air show at Miramar air base and the location of this hotel was great.

Good location for UCSD visiting parents. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Hotel staff were friendly and attentive. Laundry facilities were nice, and more than I expected. Seemed a bit odd to have to pay extra for wifi access in this day and age. Decor is dated, but it doesn't really matter as a whole.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very friendly staff. The young ladies working behind the desk were very friendly, with beautiful smiles, and quick accurate service! I, again had a great experience spending the night. Thank you. I would like to suggest a larger selection for breakfast in the future. My previous stay there, the breakfast was much better. Overall the staff was very […] accommodating.

"Good week stay"
All in all it is a good place to stay. The rooms were cleaned daily we got extra linen when the grandkids stayed the night and for their pool use. We got everything we needed without the high price. It is a place I will stay again. This was my second stay and it was the same as I remember it. One thing that could improve is the selection of the breakfast […] bar.

"Modest Hotel at convenient location"

For the money, the hotel was great. The room was very clean and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I travel for business and like a location close to where I will be working. The room was small, but it was clean and neat and everything was in good repair. It had a kitchenette, lots of closet space, iron/board, hair dryer, microwave,fridge- all very clean and neat. The neighborhood was OK not the greatest but, I was not afraid and I was alone. the […] staff was very helpful and answered all my questions. The breakfast was a total disappointment, instant coffee and a bagel or two and containers of OJ in 4 oz containers. The downstairs part of the hotel was for people that were staying longer- like month to month, and the upstairs was for overnight guests. I thought it was a little high priced for the area and size. $85.00 plus a $25.00 deposit for any incidentals and security had to check the room before I could leave to get my deposit back. That was weird. I'm not a snob but, if you have no idea how some live this might not be the place for you. If you want high end this is not it, but it was clean and neat and quiet and everything worked!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely Hotel, Friendly Staff, Great Location"
On arrival at the hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the complex was with a quirky feel and things such as a cute pond added to this. This helped me feel truley on holiday. The amenities were great with a good size pool and jacuzzi which were open lateish. The room was cozy and comfortable and had […] the basics needed. I found it really easy to drive to places close by such as Bellmont Park and Balboa Park. Overall I had a wonderful stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Arrived late on our first night and we were put in a dark noisy room right on the main road. Did not have kitchenette as described. This specific room was horrible! I asked to be moved and was told no other rooms were available tonight. First thing in the morning I went to desk and asked to either cancel our remaining nights or be moved rooms. Also […] explained that I only booked this hotel due to description of kitchenette. Was advised I didn't request a kitchen i booking. Regardless, the women did help. She did figure out how to move us to a much better room for the remainder of our stay. The new room was quite, sunny and overlooked the pool. It had a kitchenette. ( Be Advised that kitchen has NO dishes, pots, pans, coffee pot) TV is old box with fair picture. Wifi works well but you do pay additional for it. Breakfast is cereal and bananas. NO coffee there either. You get hot water and a coffee packet to mix in. Overall for the price the 2nd room was worth staying here. It is nothing fancy but was clean and did the job for the 3 nights we were in it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Worst of the worst"
This hotel was so bad I just had to leave a review, even though I never do this. As a poor student I have stayed in my share of low-quality hotels. And not even just in the US, I've stayed in crappy hostels and motels in Africa and South Asia as well. But, this hotel in San Diego was probably on par with the worst hotel experience you could find in […] a undeveloped African country. Absolutely horrible experience. I knew when I was booking that the hotel is going to be average at best (otherwise it wouldn't be that cheap), but I had no idea how bad it would actually be. Let's start with the front lobby which reeks with smoke because it is where you would find hotel staff smoking all night long (right next to their no smoking sign) and the homeless person's car parked right in front of the west entrance that is full (to the ceiling) with garbage and makes anyone passing by feel sick with its odor. The rooms are in a maze of planning non-sense. You will get lost in the unnecessarily complicated corridors of this hotel and end up in the mechanical room somehow! Then you have the room itself which was hideously dirty. The blankets and pillows were all stained and had hair in them and the towels had been used so many times that they were as rough as asphalt. And my favorite, the sticky TV remote. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice big room"
Stayed for 3 nights in double Queen bed room. Plenty of space. There was seperate kitchenette room with refigerator and Microwave. Also included a steam iron with ironing board. Two closets space. Room has a big CRT television. Cons: Continental breakfast was a very basic deal. it included Cherrios, milk, juice and fruit. Location: Near to I-805 and […] nice market around the place. Walmart, McDonald,Chipotle are nearby Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A/C Is a must!"
When I first checked in the other day the staff was very cordial and kind to me and was very prompt with my immediate air conditioning issue, then the next day I was downgraded from the 2bed superior room to the one bed room, and then I started having a little bit of an issue, first it was my prepaid reservations getting mixed up with my mothers (unpaid) […] reservations, which became so confusing but the management that was on shift took charge without batting an eyelash, overall my impression of the California suites was definitely a place I'd like to visit again because I felt very safe and the environment as a whole has such a close connection as if it were any old regular complex like back home. Thanks for the hospitality....JAMES ROY Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff were very helpful and the facilities clean- can't ask for much more for the cost!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We traveled 17 hours for a Wedding, and as soon as we pulled in to town we were able to check in. The staff was wonderful from our check in thru our whole stay. Our room had 2 full size beds, tv, mini fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board. We were surprised to find the room with also a built in stove (a plus! ). I work for a hotel so the cleanliness […] of our room was very important(No Bed Bugs!!!!) Breakfast was nothing special cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit, juice, milk, and instant coffee(not to worry, plenty of Starbucks around.) Our only issue was while the water in the shower was on, somehow the floor ended up with a puddle of water and yes we made sure the shower curtain was closed all the way, But no problem we got fresh towels everyday. Over all we enjoyed our stay and if we are ever back in the area, we will be staying again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"do not count on a good breakfast"
continental breakfast was not good at all, instant coffee, cherrios or cherrios, bagels without cream cheese, and bruised bananas that where starting to turn brown insideGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine low cost hotel"
I was concerned after reading all of the complaints about the smell of smoke filtering into the rooms. I didn't experience that problem fortunately. There are a lot of people smoking outside of the rooms so you will get the drift of smoke when walking to your room. Apparently CA with all of its multitude regulations doesn't regulate where one can smoke […] outside. The hotel is old; uses brass keys rather than cards. Rooms were clean. Good value for price, conveniently located near my destination. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the price"
The hotel was kind of confusing to navigate since our room was far away from the lobby, but the plants were really nice. Really liked the kitchenette, but our queen beds definitely were full sized and not that comfortable. For the price it was what I expected. Pool was great, breakfast not that great. Probably wouldn't stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonable price for a comfortable room."
Old old old. Decently maintained. Nice garden and fountain. Secure perimeter. I have stayed in worse. Only 20 minutes from downtown. Walking distance to several decent restaurants. Breakfast buffet is really really basic. Coffee, OJ, Milk Banana and cereal. Pool and jacuzzi are both real old but they work. Room has a small kitchen - Real small. Microwave, […] a small refrigerator and a couple of electric burners. Cable TV including Syfi. So-overall, if you want a comfortable room and you are not too picky, stay here. Or go downtown .and pay ten times as much Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The worst hotel ever. Stay away."
First of all I reserved a superior queen room and when I got their the manager sold my room WHO didn't have reservation. I guess this hotel doesn't honor your reservation . So the manager told me only room was left was a standard double bed and a handicap queen room.so I decided to take handicap room because I was with my wife.the room was old and bed […] was old,and felt like it was just springs cover by blanket. The manager did not give any discount or upgraded my room. I felt was ripped off.stay away from this hotel. This hotel doesn't guarantee your room reservations, you pay more for a bigger room and in up getting a small room you didn't reserved just because manager might get more money for your room from some who didn't have a reservations.

"Good location, great on a budget"
Grounds were very pretty, the pool was fun and loved the coy pond. The rooms have seen a better day but they did the job.

If you don't have the money for fancy on the beach, I'd certainly recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

I reserved a king and they overbooked so they attempted to "upgrade" me to two doubles. When I insisted a king for me 6'5" boy friend, they found one, however, when we got to our room it's was a queen. The pillows were smaller than the throw pillows you put on a couch.

"Beautiful grounds, old hotel, bad breakfast"
I've stayed here before and may again but was sad to see that their so called breakfast was nearly non-existant this time. Not even real coffee.

"Old, but clean"
This motel was located in a convenient location for us. It was near a neighborhood where we had family living. It is old and has some permanent tenants living there. It has been maintained well, the rooms were clean; however, the mattress was in very bad shape. We could feel the springs through the material and it was so bouncy, that you could easily […] bounce off the edge if someone sat down quickly on the other side. Air conditioners leak water all along the walkways, but they try to capture the water in buckets. Breakfast was not good. Instant coffee? Really? Frozen orange juice and cold cereal. We tried to eat breakfast there only one morning out of the 3 days we were there, but skipped it because of the poor selection and no place to sit. They only had about 6 chairs and the locals were using those. Parking lot was being redone during our stay and one night there was no place for guests to park. They should have mentioned that on line. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not a 5 star hotel but more than I expected. Room was very clean, service was prompt and couteous, breakfast was ok, and you had to pay for Internet no free WiFi, but it was affordable, and close to attractions. Walmart near by as well as eateries. I would stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old but clean"
This hotel has regular guests that live there who seems to all smoke outside of their rooms, which we could smell throughout the property. Our mattress was bad. Could feel the springs and if you were laying down and a person sat on the bed, you would most likely bounce off the other side. The good things were that the rooms were clean. Well maintained. […] Kitchens were not much use to us, but could prove valuable to others. Parking lot was being repaved when we arrived and cause much inconvenience in coming and leaving the motel, but after the work was complete, it added value to the property. Was convenient to family living 1/2 mile away. Breakfast was poor. Instant coffee only, frozen OJ, and fresh bananas and oranges arrived as we were done eating our cold cereal. We only attempted to eat there once out of our 4 day stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
