Beds are thin mattresses, and my shower head is cracked so the water leaks out and the pressure is quite low. I called this afternoon around 1pm and it is now 6pm and nobody from maintenance has com by to fix it.

Very small room, poor water pressure, laminate floors, horrible bed - mattress on a piece of wood,basically, no box spring. NO HEAT! However, the location is good if you want to go to the beach. I was not there for the beach. I just needed a place to sleep, which was tough with no heat, an army-thin blanket, and freeway noise. However, you get what you pay for and I didnt really expect more.

Room Tip: There are none - lol.

Booked a room at this hotel for a weekend at Legoland with my baby. Getting really excited I thought I should make sure the pool is up and running. But first asked if they will hold luggage until check in because I arrive at the airport at 8:00am. I really thought it was silly to ask since all hotels offer that basic convenience. But I thought just to make sure..... Surprisingly they do not! I have stayed at countless hotels domestically and internationally and this is the first hotel to say that they cannot. What am I supposed to do with our luggage? Sit in the lobby until check in time until we can enjoy our day at Legoland? She said it was due to security. Well... what does that really say about your staff? That the staff can't be trusted? Or you can't trust the area your staff would store the luggage? Wow! .... booking now immediately cancelled. I called the surrounding hotels nearby to see what their policy is and they laughed at how ridiculous the initial question was. Too bad ... money now being directed elsewhere.

This week i traveled on business and more to San Diego area. Because i love the Ocean i want to get as close to the beach as possible. That as we all know can mean your can spend beaucoup bucks. I was traveling without my wife and was delighted at $ 50 to $60 bucks a night, CAN YOU DIG IT !!
The room was clean and Newley remodeled. I was happy that i choose this place and can recommend it to others. In Southern Cal it is expensive so if I can save a few bucks on a room, why not. JS

Stayed here while attending MCRD graduation ceremonies only about 30 minutes away. Motel has a courtyard layout with plenty of parking that made loading and unloading very easy. Room was clean and comfortable except that A/C went out second night. So far, management has not seen fit to adjust cost of stay. Location was only about a mile from beach. Staff did a fair job of responding to issues we had.

Room Tip: All rooms on courtyard around pool
