    Ocean Beach Hotel

    Ocean Beach Hotel

    Class:
    6 reviews
    Good! - 77% of guests recommend

    Located on the corner of Newport with great ocean and pier views, this hotel recently remodeled and would be a great place to stay for a San Diego vacation. I like that it’s literally across the street from the beach, of course, and the added benefits of spacious updated rooms, a lovely mossy courtyard, and great access to San Diego ...

    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

    Mediocre - 62% 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 ...

    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 - 74% of guests recommend

    This is an odd-looking hotel. The sheer face looks a little more like an apartment or condo building than a Travelodge, and the (somewhat irritating) sliding front doors take the flat front of the building even further. I was greeted by a printed, laminated sign taped to these doors that declared NO VACANCY. I asked the woman inside, who was ...

    Howard Johnson Express Inn - San Diego

    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

    Class:
    2 reviews
    Mediocre - 63% 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.

    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

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

    It’s pretty hard to miss this hotel with its giant arced entryway. It seemed to me like a very California-style budget hotel, with the spacious lot, palm trees, large pool deck, and simple color scheme. My room was pleasant enough- slightly updated, and fit for a good night’s sleep before a long day out and about. The place is quite ...

    Howard Johnson - Escondido

    Class:
    3 reviews
    Mediocre - 51% 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 ...

    Class:

    Mediocre - 49% 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 - 68% 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

    The Prime Inn seems like a nice enough option for a night or two. I don't know if I would want to stay long though, the hotel is right on a main road and is quite noisy. The location all around is not the best, and I would probably look for a quieter spot out of the hubbub of this ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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! - 83% 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.
