The Rambler Motel is slated to open December 2018. Inspired by the romanticism and nostalgia of the American road trip, The Rambler Motel, has been radically redesigned to meet the needs of the modern traveler. Retro vibes, quirky amenities and genuinely friendly service bring new life to this 114 room property located in Chula Vista, CA, conveniently located to downtown San Diego and the San Ysidro International border crossing.

A 1970’s inspired face lift includes large scale graphic installations in the guest rooms, two outdoor murals from San Diego muralists Grand Presto, an old school arcade and a kidney shaped pool deck complete with fire pits, giant lawn games and chaise lounges. Rooms also have 49 inch flat screen TVS, smartphone docking stations and memory foam beds. The Rambler Motel is a new addition to San Diego based hospitality management firm, Eat.Drink.Sleep.’s portfolio of design driven hotels.

“San Diego consistently tops the list of best U.S. travel destinations because of its ideal climate, beautiful beaches and abundance of activities. But it can be tough on the wallet. We created Rambler Motel as an option for families and couples who appreciate a stay with personality and prioritize a good value”, said Brett Miller, CEO of Eat.Drink.Sleep.

Local chef, David Warner, will oversee Crank’ed Coffee, the motel’s onsite café featuring Café Calabria brews and fast bites. Guests of Rambler Motel enjoy VIP access and 24/7 take out from neighbor Seven Mile Casino. Complimentary beach cruiser rentals are on hand for guests who wish to explore the adjacent Living Coast Discover Center.

The property was purchased by San Diego based developers in June 2018. Sneak peek rates starting at just $89/night are available at or by calling 619-425-8200. Rambler Motel is located at 225 Bay Boulevard, Chula Vista, CA 91930.
