We stayed there for a long weekend in February. We had noticed when getting home that my wife had lost something in the room. We called the hotel and the owners had told us that they had found the item in question. Ever since then they have been giving us the run around and have still not returned any calls....

This hotel is the only one in town with free parking. There is an excellent view of the harbor, and one can walk a short distance to many bars and restaurants. We booked our reservation through Hotwire and they lied and told us there was self-service laundry here...upon telling us that there were not, and had never been any laundry...

Good hotel that I'm expect. They have public parking and Free WiFi. The very important thing is 3 mins walk to 7-11 and 10mins walk to Little Italia that a lot of restaurant and hanging out place. If you are coffeholic, please bing your cup or instant coffee as well

This hotel is a disgrace to be in an area that has so many other honorable hotels. When I got to the room first thing I noticed was how dirty it was. I took a shower and couldn't ignore the constant smell of dirty wet dog I kept getting whiffs of all I knew was it wasn't coming from me....

I needed to find a hotel that would enable me to be downtown, conduct video conferencing meetings yet not break the bank. After reading some reviews and speaking with the pleasant hotel staff I chose Harborview. I will choose Harborview next time based on what I experienced during my stay. Centrally located walking distance to Little Italy I was able...

We stayed for just a night because we had theater tickets in San Diego. This is a pretty old building and renovations are ongoing. My daughter said the hallway smelled weird, but that could have been temporary. You can't beat the location. It is walking distance to Little Italy, some fun restaurants and bars, coffee, and a 7/11. I was...

Awful. Front desk was rude in the evening and the morning. I didn't realize I was even putting down a $50 deposit to make sure I didn't smoke in the room until the receipt was handed to me. Beds are uncomfortable. Pay $20 more and stay somewhere else.
