Fabulous 8.8 From 77 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Cool getaway
I was pleasantly surprised. For the price the place was comfortable and nicely decorated. We enjoyed the pool and fire pit ambience. The only downside was it is a motel so you hear people come and go all hours of the night. Also the ice machine was really far away.

Great place for san diego traveling.
Area was right by the beach and easy to get around. Staff was super friendly and the pool was awesome even if we didn't get to use it since it was only in the 60s during our stay. Will for sure stay again if in the area.

Retro At It’s Finest!
To be honest I actually thought this would be one of those ‘the pictures don’t really represent’ motels...well, I was wrong! We checked in after 2 am and were greeted with a smiling fresh face, the room was great with memory foam mattresses, the lobby was clean and welcoming and had a small coffee shop with pinball and old school arcade games, the pool area was clean and well stocked with large jenga type toys, corn hole, and floaties, and a large fire pit. And the whole 70s motif was consistent throughout. We will definitely be back!

Chula Vista Stay
This is a great hotel. We liked that it was a smaller hotel and it was so clean! The pool area with the huge fire pit was enjoyed each night we stayed. Can wait till the breakfast service is up and running and will be back!
