It was our first time staying at this hotel and I have to say we had a great experience! Staff was very welcoming and friendly. They helped provide local restaurant suggestions which is nice when you are not very familiar with the area. The hotel room was extremely clean and roomy. Gaslamp was very close to the hotel which is...

I frequently travel to San Diego. I have been staying at the Sommerset Suites Hotel for 15+ years. The hotel is safe, comfortable, affordable, accommodating. I appreciate the staff at the Sommerset Suites Hotel very much. I have never had a bad experience.

If you are looking for luxury accommodations, you should look elsewhere. The finishings (carpet, cabinet doors) are close to needing a redo, the outdoor steps leading up to the rooms need a bit of repair, etc. That said, everything is clean, the beds are very comfortable (I slept great), the rooms are very large and include a kitchen, and the...

We really enjoyed our stay at Sommerset Suites - the price for a full suite hotel in downtown San Diego is unmatched, and the Hillcrest neighborhood that it's in is full of awesome restaurants and shops. The location between two hospitals does mean you hear sirens and/or a helicopter sometimes, but it was never enough to bother us or wake...

The location next to Scripps Mercy and UCSD Hillcrest and other business locations in this area is second to none. The staff is courteous and professional and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Room rate is very affordable for San Diego. I will stay here again.

The location and price are both exceptional for the area. There are many restaurants in the walking area. I found the area to be very safe. There are hospitals across the street (I did not have any issue with sirens from the ambulances). Lots of shops as well. The hotel is clean and if your with a family the suite...

We chose this hotel because we wanted a 1 bedroom with a separate living room during our stay in San Diego. The kids go to bed early and we wanted to be able to watch a movie without waking the kids.
