"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"

"The hotel was clean, reasonably priced, and conveniently located. Wonderful garden. Great place to stay.2016-12-24"
"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"
"I loved the room. Check this hotel out.2021-09-04"
"The motel was run-down and in need of repair. The front desk clerk gave me incorrect directions. The only positive was that the place was clean. The bag breakfast was a joke. Find another place to stay.2021-07-10"
"Good location. The beds were comfortable, and the continental breakfast was terrific. The hotel does charge for parking.2019-09-22"
"We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The room was cozy and comfortable, but more pillows would've been nice.2019-01-16"
"A party started at 10:30 PM; I called the hotel clerk about it, but the noise continued until 2:30 AM. I wasn't happy.2018-02-20"
"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"
"Good rates. The hotel room was clean, and everything was perfect. Fast check-in. I can't wait to go back.2021-11-08"
"I wasn't satisfied with the quality of this hotel. The hospitality was fine, but the carpet was dirty and hadn't been vacuumed, and the AC didn't work well. There was mold on the shower wall. I should have stayed in my car.2021-08-28"
"Hotel room was small but clean. Nice pool area and restaurant.2015-02-22"

"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"
"Nice hotel overall. The room and grounds were lovely. But my phone never worked, and the repairman couldn't fix it. They didn't speak English well and implied it was a wiring issue. I had to move the coffee maker since there was no electrical outlet nearby. There was a large clump of hair in the bathtub.2019-02-26"
"Our room was right next to the freeway, so the traffic noise was loud. The shower light had a leak, and the fluid was a strange color. Don't stay at this hotel.2021-06-14"
"An outstanding hotel. Stay here.2019-01-30"
"We didn't want housekeeping our 1st morning, but our room was never serviced and we never got fresh towels; I had to find a housekeeper and request some. Breakfast wasn't that good. We were disappointed.2018-03-05"
"I had a very pleasant stay at this hotel.2016-02-24"
"Convenient location and good amenities. There was some highway noise. The hotel staff was helpful, and breakfast was good.2016-02-24"
"The room was spacious, and breakfast was good. The staff wasn't consistently customer service-oriented, though. We tried calling for hours to inform the staff we'd be arriving late, but we were never able to get through. When we arrived, the hotel clerk said she'd used the phone and it worked fine. The heating and cooling unit was so loud it interrupted our sleep. Never got our requested wake-up call. Even though the room rates weren't cheap, we also had to pay for parking. We won't return.2018-12-05"

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.
