    Location near Interstate 8. Only 15 min to the beach. Air Conditioner worked well, and is placed high up on the wall above 6ft..so that it would cool the whole room and family.

    Spider in the bathroom, dirty/ stained carpets. Volume set to med/low. Cant' hear in the daytime, only at night, when it gets quieter. The price was too high for the rank of it. It's more of a single mans quarters.."on the run".

    The breakfast was very convenient.

    This hotel is far from touristic area.

    Great

    Loved having continental breakfast, microwave and a refrigerator! Room was very spacious; photos don't do it justice. Staff very accommodating at check in and when I had a problem with the toilet.

    Issue with toilet not flushing and requiring them to come to room to fix it.

    Perfect

    Good price for the rooms, and the staff was very nice, friendly and educated!

    The place was a little far from Downtown and the beaches, but its ok cause you can get around easily

    When checking in We were told our booking could not be found in their reservation system and were asked to contact the Booked.net. So we had to make an int'l call back by ourselves to the customer service of Booked.net to solve the problem. Although the problem was solved soon, it was not a light-hearted experience to us. What would it be if we did not have the mobile phone with us ?

    I did not like getting ripped off for $50 of the $200 deposit required at check in. Did not appreciate the SURPRISE of this deposit. It was not mentioned when I booked. Didn't like having to move when the bathroom ceiling leaked because of rain

    Although the room was picked up, the surfaces were all sticky, the bathroom light took 10 minutes to come on and the refrigerator rattled all night.

    Great price for the room! Non-smoking environment was a plus even though people dont listen. Very good restaurant right next door.

    Smelled like weed at night and early morning in the area. Minor damages to the room. Having to put a security deposit wasn't my favorite thing either. Don't let the "free breakfast" get you, it's only pastries and cereal.

    Beds were comfy and location close to SDSU.

    The staff was not helpful and had terrible customer service. Our electrical outlets did not work in the bathroom, our room key kept breaking, and had difficulty with wheelchair accessibility.

    Clean room

    There was no running water on Sunday Morning. We ended up checking out without taking a shower. I would not stay in this hotel again, the management did not seem to care about the fact that there was no running water.

    Very good

    It was reasonably situated to the places we wanted to visit, within short drives. The room and the bed were comfortable.

    Upon arrival and when returning each day, we found the odor of the cleaning supplies used overwhelming and unpleasant.

    Great

    Great location. Clean property. Older but clean. The staf could have let me pay for another night since I was already checked in. But they made me go online and book. Here's a great Mexican food place on the property. Must try.

    Staffs could be more friendly. It was like they were being watched so they had to be strict and border line mean.
