You get what you pay for

Pros: Cheap price and close proximity to SD Safari Park and LEGOLAND.
Cons: Security, get the trucks and sweepers out. Make the hotel a smoke free facility and do not rent out rooms to young men who are drinking openly.
Location: LEGOLAND, SD Safari Park, restaurants and amenities.
Stayed here 3 nights primarily just to crash land after hectic days with kids at LEGOLAND and San Diego Safari Park. From LEGOLAND this hotel is about 25 min of drive and to SD Safari Park it is only 10 minutes drive Check in: Quick and easy Parking: Plentiful WiFi connection: Very good (though I only used at night time for 60 minutes or less) Parking Security and Safety: Unknown. Noticed lots of trucks, sweepers parked in front of the hotel and the parking lot looks a bit dirty. Advice, park at the entrance near the pool area Swimming pool and spa: Never used. But did see some children using it Laundry: Yes only on the first floor all the way in the corner. 2 Washers and 2 Dryers. Not that clean and that area looked a little ghetto or run down with young men occupying that rooms in that corner and heavily drinking. I am a strong built man and can defend myself, but I still did not feel comfortable doing my laundry at 7pm with all these guys drinking heavily. Advice, don't do laundry unless absolutely necessary. I have a feeling the hotel is renting those rooms to those truck drivers that I mentioned above and a lot of men occupying that corner area Breakfast: Good. Waffle machine, white bread with butter and jam, hot coffee, 2 types of juices, 2 types of cereals, and milk. Kids loved it and the hot coffee was decent. Room: Decent size and good. Advice, stay on the far end of the hotel either on the 2nd or 3rd floor Overall: Just ok to crash

Bad! Our family did not get sleep, because there were cockroaches on the beds.

Didn't intend to stay here--but it turned out good

Posted 30-Jul-2014
Pros: The staff (courteous & accomodating), room was large (two queens & room for a rollaway), family friendly, pool & hot tub were nice, breakfast incl.
Cons: Carpet had a few stains; bathroom had some areas to clean better and paint. Larger refrigerator was great, but needed defrosting.
Location: Nice shopping areas fairly close (Auto Park Way), restaurants close. We drove to Del Mar, La Jolla, & San Diego each day with no issues.
Tried to get my family to the ocean in the San Diego & La Jolla area, but the Comic Con drove the prices up by triple the usual rate! We ended up at this Super 8 in central Escondido because it was the only thing left that was affordable and somewhat close. The traffic to get there from San Diego was bad on Friday evening, but fine the rest of the days. We used the location farther out as a way to visit several beaches on the way from Escondido to San Diego. My kids described the area in Escondido as "sketchy" because there were many homeless people, sirens, and police cars speeding by. However, they are quite sheltered living in the foothills/mountains of Colorado and are not accustomed to city life. Pool and hot tub were nice. Laundry was very convenient.

It was a disappointing stay. Break fast was O.K. We found two little bugs in the bath room. I think this hotel is over-rated.

Impressed

Hotel was clean and had very comfortable beds. It's walking distance to nearby foods and movie theaters. Definitely worth the money to stay the weekend.

Yuck, I was grossed out.

Posted 26-Jun-2014
I have stayed in this motel three times before and I thought it was fine the first two times. This time my room was not clean. There were hairs in the bathroom and the worst was the bedspread. It was stained and it had holes in it. YUCK!!! Next time I'll go somewhere else.

Creepy looking area. No check in parking.

Posted 24-Jun-2014
Pros: Nice front desk. Relatively quiet.
Cons: Parking for check in. Upgrades to the hallways and office and eating area.
Location: Location was not good. No close to anything. We drove about 25 minutes to get to this hotel from Lego Land. I thought it was closer when I booked it.
The guy at the front desk was very nice and helpful but the area and the hotel grounds were kind of scary. Not a great part of town. There was a cricket and a large red bug in our hotel room. There was a pair of underwear under our sheets in the bed. We checked in in advance and had 2 adults and 3 kids but had only 2 bath towels and 2 hand towels. It was quiet which was nice, but I would not recommend it unless you can hang with a not so good area and shady looking guests. Did not stay for the breakfast so I cannot comment on that.

Motel surroundings were not very good.

Posted 19-Jun-2014
Pros: Swimming pool and spa was set at a good temperature.
Cons: Improve the breakfast. It was not very nutritious. Had white bread and no fruit.
Location: Safari Zoo was about 20-30 minutes away.
We would not stay there again. The room was clean but the room was dark and the odor was unpleasant. Room attendant entered room while we were sleeping. The motel we stayed at the previous night was $30 more but well worth it.
