Franciscan Inn, Vista
Very Good8.0
Close to appointment location. Fair Value.
Arrived late, but checked in easily using side window. Room wasn't too far away. Large, spacious room. Updated flooring and bathroom sink. Comfortable bed and other furnishings. Reasonable price for budget facilities.

A little expensive for a basic motel
Very basic motel... looked a little old and scruffy from the outside but the room was clean and basic inside. I thought $100 was a bit much for such basic accomodations, but it seems everything in the san diego area is very overpriced

Nice motel
Good staff, friendly service and administration. They have been improving all kinds of little details ever since this family took over.
