    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 ...

    Good Nite Inn Sea World

    Good Nite Inn Sea World

    Class:

    Mediocre - 61% of guests recommend

    Eh. I could stop there and that would not be an understatement. First off, if I owned the Good Nite Inn Sea World I would fire my interior decorator. The carpet is the color of regurgitated pizza sauce, and the duvet covers look like they belong in the back of my grandpa's closet. The room is very standard, with beds ...

    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

    Class:
    3 reviews
    Mediocre - 53% of guests recommend

    For how inexpensive this hotel is I was amazed that it was actually pretty above average for a cheap hotel! You are greeted in the lobby by a life size Hulk Hogan, which immediately made me love this place. It is a simple hotel with free parking for guests. They have laundry access, which is really convenient if you are ...

    Marina Inn and Suites is located in Little Italy district of San Diego, very close to the maritime museum and the Santa Fe Train Depot (Amtrak Train Station). The unique thing about this motel is the price, is the lowest of all hotel Little Italy and surround area. Pros: + Price (Lowest in little Italy and nearby) $60 two beds ...

    Class:

    Mediocre - 68% of guests recommend

    If you need to go to Escondido, this is as good of a hotel as any to spend the night. The staff is super friendly, and professional. The room was showed to was a non-smoking room, but I wouldn't have guessed because of the old ashtray smell that lingered in room. Besides that the room was clean and simple. The ...

    Rodeway Inn - Carlsbad

    Rodeway Inn - Carlsbad

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

    Clean, simple, and basic, Carlsbad's Rodeway Inn is a convenient choice if you want to visit some of the town's claims to fame - like Legoland, the Flower Fields, or even the outlet shops. The laundry room was a plus, and I personally liked that the entire hotel is smoke-free. For a small hotel, I was surprised that they served ...

    Howard Johnson - Escondido

    Class:
    3 reviews
    Mediocre - 52% of guests recommend

    Like most budget hotels, the Escondido Howard Johnson is not somewhere that you really want to be cooped up for an entire day. However, I’ve seen more wear on a room and experienced less hospitality at hotels that charge twice as much. The rate is cheap, every room has free Wi-Fi and either a microwave or a stove, and the ...

    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 ...

    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:
    3 reviews

    For visitors from out of town who need a place to rest their weary heads after a night screaming (and be honest, drinking) at the Cricket Amphitheater's headlining act, the Prime Inn does just fine. Sure, the night window pricked my wary senses a bit, and the front desk clerk was less than friendly, but the room does just fine ...

    Class:

    Fair - 72% of guests recommend

    I really liked this Howard Johnson Inn, and the receptionist was very friendly. They offer a shuttle to Sea World for a mere $4.00, and are extremely helpful when it comes to information about the surrounding area. The room itself was spacious and offers a safe, iron, hair dryer and toiletries. They also offer room service, and only in San ...

    San Diego Days Inn (Hollister)

    Class:

    Mediocre - 68% of guests recommend

    My first thought when I entered the room was, “OOH GURL LOOK AT THOSE DUVET COVERS,” which is not something that I usually expect to think during my time at a less expensive chain hotel. The duvets were an interesting gold color with a lovely sheen to it, though, and the bright white pillows looked very fluffy and inviting. The ...

    I didn't think there was anything too bad about this Travelodge. But I also didn't think there was anything too great about it. The lady at the front desk was taking some major heat from the couple in front of me, who got caught trying to both stay there when they had only paid for one person. The receptionist was ...

    It’s pretty hard to miss the giant front of this SDSU area Howard Johnson, though the property behind the sign will look very different in the coming months. There was quite a bit of remodeling going on during my visit, and while I wasn’t too impressed with the old rooms, the new granite bathroom countertops will look great once they’re ...

    What a great solid 2 star review. And I thought some parts of Seaworld smelled. This place was good for one thing and it was a cheap, cheap family vacation because we all know Seaworld itself is not cheap, nor were any other of the famous San Diego attractions. This was more like an icky motel on the side of ...

    Very Good! - 84% of guests recommend

    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.
