I picked this motel because it was walking distance to the location where we were to celebrate the 50th birthday of my sister. It was within a couple of minutes. The room wasn't special, but it was clean and the bed was comfortable. That's important.

It was an ok hotel for the price we got on Expedia but I feel bad for those that paid full price. The place was clean but not outstanding and none of the cleaning staff that I ran into spoke English so you couldn't ask them anything. The pictures of the pool were completely misleading, it looked like a large hot tub in person.
The reason for the stay was to be close to the SDSU campus where were planning to attend our daughter's graduation. The location was perfect and we stayed 3 nights, giving us plenty of time to accomplish everything we had to do.
