Stayed here with a friend before attending a business meeting. The location is fantastic. Shops, bars, restaurants and more all at your door. The hotel itself is pretty run down but that's reflected in the price being cheaper than the other hotels in that area of gaslamp. The staff were friendly and their style suited the hotel really... not over...

I stayed here World Baseball Classic. I took my parents for the weekend to watch some ball games. I was pleasantly surprised with the resort. It is outdated but it is in the middle of Downtown with lots to do. The rooftop terrace is awesome. I didn't know that the hotel was also next to Brian's 24. My favorite breakfast...

Our stay at this hotel was pleasant, the rooms were adequate and clean, nothing fancy but it was located in a prime location, walking distance to all major bars,eateries and shopping.
