    Ocean Beach Hotel

    Ocean Beach Hotel

    Class:
    6 reviews
    Good! - 78% of guests recommend

    Though the rooms are nothing to write home about, the location of this hotel and the general laid-back ambiance that fits perfectly with OB make me absolutely love this hotel. I could sit on the balcony with the room's windows open for the rest of my life just watching the interesting characters of Ocean Beach go about their day. The ...

    Sommerset Suites Hotel

    Class:

    Excellent! - 85% of guests recommend

    Any hotel that offers in-room kitchens instantly grabs my attention. It's tough in this location though, because there are so many delicious bites nearby. Situated in hip and happenin' Hillcrest, the Sommerset Suites Hotel is the perfect spot if you are in town to cut the rug, paint the town red, or, you know, party. Hillcrest is the younger and ...

    Best Western Yacht Harbor Hotel

    Class:
    3 reviews
    Good! - 78% of guests recommend

    This Best Western is located on Harbor Island, right across the street from the stunning San Diego Bay and yacht harbor. The hotel is clean, the rooms are comfortable and the staff is helpful and professional. The hotel has reasonable rates, especially considering it's location overlooking the water and down town San Diego. After a cozy nights rest, wake up ...

    Travelodge La Mesa

    Travelodge La Mesa

    Class:
    3 reviews
    Fair - 73% of guests recommend

    This hotel is right off one of the main roads in La Mesa, but I couldn't tell once I stepped into the lobby. The lobby was playing extremely relaxing music, the kind of music that should be accompanied by questions such as, "how's the pressure?" smells such as chamomile lavender. The front desk clerk was friendly, even though I was ...

    Howard Johnson Express Inn - San Diego

    Howard Johnson Express Inn - San Diego

    Class:
    3 reviews
    Mediocre - 53% of guests recommend

    This is probably one of the least updated hotels in the hotel circle, but it’s a pretty good deal for the money. Free parking, standard sized rooms with admittedly worn but clean furnishings, and that ridiculous/amazing statue of The Hulk in the lobby make for a good place to sleep and clean up and head out. The elevator was out ...

    Marina Inn and Suites

    Class:
    2 reviews
    Mediocre - 62% of guests recommend

    This inn had more of a motel feel to it than an inn & suites, but it was a lot cleaner than I expected. The parking was free, which was nice, and it was pretty close to the trolley stop. It was pretty close to Gaslamp District without the outrageous price, so it was good value for the money.

    Motel 6 Escondido

    Motel 6 Escondido

    Class:
    3 reviews
    Mediocre - 68% of guests recommend

    As with any Motel 6, you aren't going to get all the frills of a luxury resort, but this one is clean and decently comfortable. The TVs are small, but provide expanded cable, and funky little desks provide a decent workspace. The hotel is right off of a main street in Escondido, meaning plenty of restaurants and food options nearby ...

    Rodeway Inn - Carlsbad

    Class:
    3 reviews
    Excellent! - 88% of guests recommend

    There is nothing too special about this spot, though it is affordable and close to Legoland and other Carlsbad attractions. The rooms are pretty small, but are clean! The freeway is literally right across the street, which might get annoying if you are planning on staying for more than a night or two. There is a laundry room, which is ...

    Class:

    Mediocre - 52% of guests recommend

    For a budget hotel, this Howard Johnson is a fantastic choice. From the time I stepped into the lobby, I felt welcomed and comfortable: the manager is extremely friendly and good-natured, personable and full of great advice. She proudly showed us the new lobby, which adds a bit of funky chicness (notice the U.S. time zone clocks and red armchairs ...

    Super 8 San Diego/South Bay

    Class:

    Mediocre - 50% of guests recommend

    First off, I'm pretty positive there is a homeless person living on the premises, because there is a shopping cart full of stuff in the parking lot. They could have just been passing through, but I don't know. I don't know why you would want to stay in this area, unless you have work or some other obligation. There are ...

    Surfer Beach Hotel

    Class:

    Mediocre - 67% of guests recommend

    The walls are a bit thin here and it's gets noisy if you stand outside and people are talking out there. This is a great hotel if you're on a budget and don't mind the noise. It is beachfront and close to a lot of bars and entertainment.

    Prime Inn San Diego

    Class:

    You could do worse for a budget hotel with a pool, especially with the friendly front desk man (who apparently is not there daily). The room hasn’t been updated in a decade or so, but it looked clean enough. I thought it was a little odd that the lobby wasn’t open in the middle of the day, and that I ...

    I would like to thank Dave at the front desk, first and foremost, for his fantastic mustache and ridiculous jokes. I asked if there was a gym on site and he responded with, “We have a Bob and a Mary, but no Jim.” Oh, you. The room itself was a little less exciting and had a slight musty smell, but ...

    Class:

    Mediocre - 68% of guests recommend

    This San Diego Days Inn is located on a fairly big property, surrounded by a whole lot of nothing. There isn't any reason I would want to come back to this hotel, other than maybe to complain about them having no pool in the heat of the San Diego sun. The man working at the front counter was mildly rude, ...

    The front desk employee made it clear he wasn't particularly thrilled to be there, and the rest of the hotel followed suit. I saw a boarded-up broken window on the side of a room on my way upstairs, and the dilapidated look of my own room made it clear that the broken window was probably not a recent accident. There ...

    Tis Howard Johnson Inn is a great option for anyone who can't decide whether they want to stay in North Park or La Mesa! Unless you are a possible college student who wants to check out the San Diego State campus. I had to do a few U-turns in order to finally figure out how to get into the parking ...

    Bargain rates for staying near SDSU are what you get at this two-story roadside motel. Tiny pool and weak Wi-Fi, but free breakfast and parking. Professional, efficient staff. Just beware that they often sell out on weekends.
