Very close to the event we were attending.

The only issue was the Wifi had a very poor if not zero signal in the rooms... you could step into the hallway and connect but once in the room nothing. Free in room WiFi was part of the package so that was really the only negative.

Great free breakfast. Very nice staff during the day and evening.

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!

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.

The hotel was located very close to the freeway and fast food.

For 2.5 stars, I expect a small fridge in the room. The hotel was more of a clean 2 star hotel. The pool area was a small basic pool. Really, a two star hotel.

Good free breakfast, comfortable beds, quiet

Very small dining area for breakfast, so if hotel is fully booked it's really crowded

Great location, close to everything we wanted, also easy access to freeway yet quiet.

The staff was amazingly friendly. My kids went to the front counter four times one evening asking about their complimentary cookies and turns out they weren't putting any out that night so they let my kids pick toys from a treasure box instead. Awesome.

The walls are a bit thin so lots of noise pollution in the mornings (kids running up the halls) but not bad at night.

We booked this hotel for out stay while visiting the Legoland amusement park. Great location less than 10 min. drive. Decent breakfast which is served until 10am. And as I previously stated, amazingly friendly staff. Definitely worth the money.

I loved the price that I paid for such a great room. The location was great too.

I wish there was more pool towels and a bigger breakfast area for the waffles. .it was really crowed.

I would come back again and use this hotel chain for other locations.

I liked the rooms. Having children it was nice to have a separate room with a door you could close. The kitchenette was nicely stocked with everything we would need to make a meal.

The breakfast could've had a better selection. Both days that we ate the breakfast there was no side of meat. That would've been nice with pancakes, waffles and French toast, some bacon or sausage.

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.

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.

The movie they played at night. The fresh baked cookies (appeared to be only 1 batch that went fairly quickly), the small pool that was usually pretty empty. The Paul Mitchell Shampoo/Conditioner

They don't offer breakfast. The rooms are small. The sink is outside the bathroom with VERY small counter space. The sink does not accommodate up to 4 people's stuff. No safe in the room

They offered a movie (Cinderella) on Friday night with complimentary, freshly popped popcorn. Not sure about the other nights. The staff are friendly. They sell Starbucks coffee and offer a good selection of breakfast food. LOVE their oatmeal with walnuts, brown sugar, raisins and milk.

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.
