I only stayed here for a couple of nights but I found it to be a safe hotel and it was clean.
The beds were very comfortable!!

Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn & Suites - Sea World/Airport San Diego
Would stay again
Some things about this place are great and some are not. I have stayed there twice, once for 5 days in July 2002 and now 3 days in August 2005. I would stay again, but be warned about what to expect. First of all I think that you can get a great rate for the area if you call the 1-800 # instead of booking on the internet. We saved at least $30.00 a night that way. We had a suite which was 2 double beds and a seperate living room with a hideabed. The rooms are clean and comfortable but the carpet should be replaced. We were right by the pool which was great. The breakfast is good, as you get a choice of pancakes or toast and scrambled eggs. The location is convenient to Old Town, beaches, Sea World, Balboa Park etc. Everything is only a few minutes away. Yes, there are strip clubs around, but you don't have to go there. There is a mall close by as well with a grocery store, Target, Mervyn's etc.
The parking is awful because there isn't enough space between the rows. We had a small car and found it too cramped! I had a problem with the front desk. The girl didn't even know how much it would cost to do laundry in her hotel and wanted me to go across the street to the Walgreens to get quarters. She was very rude and unprofessional. I told her that I was her customer and not a customer of Walgreens, so I would be needing change from her. The maids forgot to replace something everyday in our room (towels, cups etc.) However, I would stay there again for the price and the convenience to Old Town and beaches. The pool area makes it very nice.
Dump, Dump, Dump
This place was nasy. My son watched a car get jacked on our way to the motel. We booked the place through Expedia (who were wonderful) the hotel gave us a smoking room, which we refused. It took over an hour of sitting in the lobby waiting for the clerk to deal with every person who came through the door before he would find us an alternate room. The found us adjoining rooms (business rooms that were half decent) but insisted that we move to a suite the following day. We were only there for two nights and it was the only consecutive two night stay on our 16 day trip!! We also had a car that was parked in front of our van catch fire in the parking lot soon after we arrived, it was still there when we left two days later. The rooms were dirty, smelled and over priced.
Scary night's stay
If you enjoy walking around urine-covered homeless people, gangs of tough kids looking to engage in fights and poor customer service, then this is the place for you! We tried for hours to get someone to bring a crib up to our room and we finally gave up. After we came back to the hotel hours later after dinner, it had finally been delivered. Lots of aircraft noise from the VERY CLOSE airport and many scary non-paying guests out in the "courtyard" area... i.e. homeless people wandering around and sleeping in the corners. Not at all worth the $90 a night to stay here. Your money would be better spend a few minutes drive east of this location in order to get a much better rate for a much cleaner place. Upon check-in you receive breakfast vouchers which you must present to claim your cold eggs and pancakes the next morning. I should have know when I saw vouchers for breakfast that they were trying to keep someone out and this someone was the many bums looking for free meals. Not a good or relaxing stay at all.
OMG Run & Run Fast
I guess the owners of the roach infested hotel must have read the posts and decided to do a little damage control. This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Rooms were dirty and staff was NASTY. Period !
a great hotel...a nice hot whirlpool after a day of sightseeing...clean and friendly...close to everything...you can even walk to the old town transit station from here...
The Days Inn was a perfect fit for me and my family.
We had two suites that were good sized, and each was more than enough room for 4 people. The rooms were clean, and had they had a fridge and microwave in each. Breakfast was good (pancakes and eggs), but the unlimited coffee was better.
The best part of this hotel is it's central location to everything in San Diego, the zoo, beaches, and Sea World are all less than 10 minutes.
Thank you to Joey at the front desk, you made our weekend trip worth repeating, we'll be be back in January!
My stay was great!
I'm not sure if the other reviews I read may have had the wrong hotel, because my stay was great!
Due to some construction on my home, I was forced to move to a hotel for a few days. I chose the Days Inn because of its location near my house, and the price was right ($79.00). The staff was friendly, and made me feel right at home. The room was clean, and the furnishings looked new. They served a hot breakfast each morning (included in the rate), it wasn't the best but it was better than McDonalds.
It was great to see all of the graduating Marines and their families staying at the hotel, it made the hotel feel family oriented and it made me feel safe.
Made my Skin Crawl!!!
The pictures online are VERY deceiving. The hotel room, the bathroom, the kitchen, and the pool were very dirty!!! I walked into the kitchen area for the "complimentary full breakfast" and walked directly out. I had requested a non smoking room, which I had received, yet there were burn holes all over the comforter and floor! This has to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed at!!!
Deceived by the AD online
At $90.00 a night, and advertised as a three star hotel, you'd think you are getting a bargain. Well, do get deceived. The tour is nothing like the actual hotel. The pool is not heated, and not oval shaped like it showed in the "tour". The "continental breakfast", well...I don't know who inspected that eating area, but I saw a huge cockroach and pointed it to the host. She said "this area needs an exterminator". Yes this place is a dump. Towels feel like sandpaper.
What a DUMP !
This place should have been called Days Inn Airport. The planes fly so low over this hotel you think they are going to crash into it. In addition, we had a lovely view of the Target loading dock.The room type online said the suites have two queens in one room and a king in the bedroom. Not so ! It's just a regular room with a bad pull-out sofa. The bedroom has two beds that you need to climb over to make it to the balcony.Front desk was not helpful !We changed our reservation to the Red Lion Haneli and loved it. The only downside to the Red Lion was the parking fee of $8.00 per day.I hope that helps !

... guess, a meat restaurant. All the Strauss carnivores were very happy! With full bellies we concluded the day at our sleep destination - a friend's relative's house. So nice to be in a real home.
July 9, Tuesday - A week has passed full of tons of fun and exhaustion. Today we spent the day at Sea World. We saw four great shows (Shamu the whale, Cirque de la Mer, Sea lions, and the dolphins), went on two roller coasters, drank lots of ...
... lift for a good 40 mins and had to be evacuated by the fire dept!
Nice food and drinks, so everyone was happy. The views over the small lagoon very nice in the sunset. When the sun went down it was quite chilly, so I was grateful that Paul had taken a jacket for me as well..
I'm so happy to see Paulette and Dan Campbell again, and to receive their offer of accommodation when we go to Arizona
... of walking. Perfect location really, but realised I could spend a week just exploring the zoo and park, let alone seeing the rest of SD. Coming back here for sure! Maybe time it for comic-con or something :D Watched an elephant have a pedicure and listened to Ronald the keeper talking about how they care for them. Other highlights were the sky cable car, bus tour, and beautiful setting for the zoo, such a lovely place ...
... impressive. I'm sure if you have been to Mexico maybe not so impressive and maybe not so much if you really focused on how many tourists there were but I had a blast. I arrived in time to take a free tour (fingers crossed!) and it ended up being the tour guide, Rita in full period costume, myself and a guy who was volunteering and need to go a couple of tours. This was of course after a few people had left the tour so I was able to go full throttle on all my ...
... based around arts and crafts. The park is bursting with museum and galleries but as were on a tight budget we only visited the free attractions, these are the Spanish Village, Botanical Building and lots of gardens. We are really impressed with Balboa Park, you could spend hours people watching...lots of eccentric folk with crazy dogs, we did see one French Bulldog wearing, trainers, jacket and sunglasses!!
