This hotel is right off of the freeway and only a short distance to many nice restaurants.  The staff was pleasant and helpful.  We forgot our toothbrushes/toothpaste and luckily these were among many items that are complimentary.  The room was very clean and comfortable.  Would definitely stay here again!

I did the surprise stay to get a 'good' rate on my stay in the area and went by the star rating of a 3 I believe. Did it last time we traveled to the area and go a really nice hotel and this time got a nasty dirty one. The staff is not very friendly, the second floor rooms are caving in in some areas.Looked/smelled 3 rooms before picking one and receptionist was mad and snapped after the second one saying she can't show me every room in the building, I told her it's not my fault that the non-smoking rooms smell like smoke and the second one smelled like feet. Not very clean. Overall unsatisfied that the rating of this hotel is higher than a 1. If you have kids do not recommend staying here, it's a old trucker motel with that said it gives what i thought a good hotel 'Ramada' a bad name and never staying here or any ramada ever again. It resembles more the old motel 8's, the new motel 8s are way nicer, cleaner than this. As far as service, you have to walk to front desk for shampoo and ...

The room and pool area was nice. Blue fire grill was fabulous!

Front desk staff was unhelpful on multiple occasions. The day spa is mediocre at best and is long overdue for renovations! Indoor facility grout is disgusting and the indoor hot tubs are falling apart!

The pool was way too overcrowded. I think they sell membership to to the pool to the community making it unusable to the hotel guests. There were so many people you could hardly move in it and the water was so cloudy I couldnt even see my feet. Will never go back to this hotel.

This place was MUCH nicer than I was expecting! Everything was so clean and lovely. The kitchenette was perfect. Very nice bathroom and full closet. The mattress was to die for! I wish I had one at home!! Two TVs...really couldn't have asked for more! The front desk staff was always extremely courteous and friendly. The breakfast was expansive and delicious (although it would be nice if they offered some gluten free cereals or breads). Very impressed!!!

This is by far the best hotel I've ever been to. It's perfectly located for Legoland, though you do need a car for this place, but it's WELL worth your money. Absolutely the best deal as it's a super clean hotel with a friendly and helpful staff and they feed you breakfast and dinner Mon-Thurs with free drinks (including beer and wine!). The food is delicious and there are plenty of options, especially considering they call it a 'continental breakfast' and a 'light meal' for dinner. We saved hundreds of dollars with them feeding my family of four. The atmosphere in the eating area and around the pool area are fun and friendly during the free meal times! I will stay here EVERY time I'm in the area for business or pleasure. I was incredibly impressed with this place that I immediately called the District Manager on the day of our departure to congratulate him on providing a hotel that made our vacation perfect!!!

I was woken up by housekeeping in the morning on the day I checked out- I would have liked to sleep in! And I don't like the hidden "resort fee".

Very kid-friendly and the proximity to Legoland was nice. The staff were generally pretty helpful. The gym had a good selection of equipment.

For the price, the room that we had was sub-par. The wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling and the shower was pretty run-down. Although some of the gym equipment had televisions built in, there was limited volume despite the supplying of headphones. Couldn't really hear anything while running on the treadmill.

Old building style, burned tube, smoking smell everywhere, no privacy curtain you can see through into the room from outside.food is bad. Carpet is dirty. Give us a smoking room when I book a non smoking room and I have to take the room because there was no other choice. Bad customer services from hotel people and booking.com CS too.

We had tickets to the Safari Park and decided to stay in Escondido since it was closer and less expensive than San Diego. We arrived late and there didn't seem to be much around the hotel but it seemed safe enough to walk across the street to the 7-11. This hotel is in a pretty quiet surrounding even though it is near a Hwy exit. The rooms were clean and spacious. The bathroom is neat as well. It was a perfect place to relax before and after a long day. There were many places to eat and visit nearby. The Safari Park is a quick 15 minute drive, Stone Brewery is about 10 minutes away and recommended. Grand St and Valley Pkwy are full of good restaurants and they are very close by. All in all we had a good experience at the Super 8!

The room was huge and felt welcoming. Seemed pretty clean and bed was comfortable. Only markdown is for the breakfast which consisted of make-it-yourself waffles, cereal and a pastry. But it was good value for the money and will definitely stay again.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Free parking and WiFi.

No closet or dresser. No lid on toilet seat. Low quality bath towels.

TV remote was broken, but friendly and polite front desk person replaced the remote. No closet or dresser (apparently a standard feature in remodeled Motel 6 rooms). Found a bug on the bed sheets. No complimentary shampoo/conditioner/lotion in the room (another standard feature for Motel 6). We stayed in a Super 8 motel one month ago, and not only paid less for a nicer room, but also got a complimentary breakfast!

Close to my travel destination, Quiet location.

wifi was not working in my room and althought I spent several hours working with the tech support for their provider, they never offered to move me to a room where it was available. I even told them the first morning that I really needed it that evening.

Advertised service of wifi was not provided. Check out clerk was very dismissive when I summarized my complaint for her. Problem issue was not passed onto the next shift so that they could stay on top of the issue. :( Room was very sparce but clean. No easy chair to relax in.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
