"Nice hotel, and within walking distance to the trolley to local attractions. The room was nicely decorated, and the beds were comfortable. Good breakfast. There was a charge for parking, though.2015-12-10"
"If you arrive after 8 PM, you'll have to go to the back of the building and check in through a window with bullet-proof glass. There was no heat in the room, and we froze. No TV remote control. Breakfast was so bad I wouldn't feed it to a dog. The elevator didn't work. Don't stay at this motel.2019-12-31"

"The hotel was nice and clean, and I loved that pets were allowed. The staff was friendly. I did have to pay for parking. No keyed re-entry to the stairwells, so if your room is at the end of the hall, you have to go back to the elevator to re-enter.2018-09-26"

"A wonderful motel. The best part was the free breakfast, which my whole family enjoyed. Definitely stay here.2017-11-12"
"A fairly nice motel other than a few minor issues. Ask for a 1st floor room if you're handicapped since there's no elevator.2016-11-03"
"Nice enough motel, but I'm handicapped and was given a room on the 2nd floor. There was an odor of sewage from the bathtub drain that was noticeable in the room, and the fridge froze our sodas.2016-11-01"

"Centrally located. Nice price. The 1st room had the loudest toilet I've ever heard, and the soundproofing was poor. I was moved to another room that was much quieter. Ask for a room on the upper level at the end of the building. Give this hotel a try.2016-10-17"
"We stayed at this resort for 3 days and didn't get fresh towels or coffee refills until the final day, despite calling every day for them. The staff blamed construction for the problems.2020-07-08"
"Centrally located. The hotel was older, but nice and fine for me. Most of the electrical outlets wouldn't work without a grounding prong; I had to dry my hair at the desk since the bathroom outlets didn't work. I enjoyed the grounds and being close to Fashion Valley Center. The employees were all nice.2015-06-12"
"The motel badly needed maintenance. Our room was above the laundry room and was always hot. There was no carpet, and the tiles were peeling off the floor. The parking lot was small. I won't stay here again.2018-12-06"
"Convenient to downtown, Balboa Park, SeaWorld, Fashion Valley Mall, and many other attractions. The room rate was reasonable and included WiFi and continental breakfast. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The only downside was that I lost an item of clothing that I assume was gathered up with the laundry, and the hotel staff was unable to locate it. The breakfast room got crowded, so go early. I definitely recommend this motel to anyone looking for an inexpensive place to sleep.2015-07-08"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
