Only one...on the whole, the hotel was comfortable, well appointed, nicely decorated and very handicapped enabled. The flaw was no staff on duty after 11 pm, so when the drunken frat boys partied until 5:30 a.m. in the courtyard, we had no recourse. We did ask them three times to hold the volume down, but drunken young men are not...

Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately, we do not have someone every night, but we try to predict the nights that have a greater potential for noise. I do, however, have a person on duty 24 hours a day at our sister property located a 1/2 of a block away, and have included little tents in each room with their...

This place is great for exploring San Diego. The room is small, but not cramped. Everything was clean. The bathroom was a decent size, you could totally have a small party in the shower! I had seen some negative reviews and was a little nervous, but honestly this place was great. It is not a luxury resort; so if that's...

I was very curious about your heading, and now that I know what you mean, it's perfect! Our location is excellent for almost anything you could have planned for your vacation or get-a-way by the beach. I do apologize about the hot water. We generally get that by request, as the hot water in the air-pot gets cooled too quickly....

We paid for 2 rooms with 2 double beds but were told that they only had one room for us. We ended up getting one room with king and one room with 2 double beds. Breakfast is non existant, there was no fridge in one of the rooms, the shower flooded the whole bathroom and bedroom in one of the...

I do have to admit that we do sometimes error in reservations, and that there is a miscommunication with the room type reserved. I always recommend confirming your reservations prior to arrival. I don't know how you reserved, but there are many resources that only give you a room, and not a room type. When we can, based on availability,...

check in was super easy and we got a perfect parking spot up close. In 15 mins we had our bags in our room, even picked the floor- we elected the second. The room is super simple but clean and had an update bathroom with a very large shower that is made for 2. The room is very small but...

I'm glad to see your check-in was fast and easy. We do try to have that staggered so that no one really has to wait too long. We are new, and some rooms are pretty small, but we do have a few suites, and a couple of rooms with two beds that are much more spacious. Thank you for staying...

Booked this for a great value- being so close to the boardwalk and free parking. It's ok for 1 night only. No real breakfast, a sticky sweet bun and lukewarm coffee. However, the front desk employees were very friendly and helpful. No view from the room at all, large kitchenette area, yet strangely no plates, tea kettle or utensils. Even...

Thank you for your comments, and these always assist us in making the necessary improvements for our future guests. I do have plans on hiring security for that reason. I thought having a part time desk clerk at night would keep things quiet, but I think the only solution is security. Other than that, we do not advertise anything nicer...

First thing I noticed while writing this review is that all the cons are similar. No joke. Plus... Honestly, the true guest rating should be a 2.0 at best. However, there are 2 pros: location and free parking (if u can find a spot) Cons: 1. They will try to put you in the handicap room (see other reviews). I...

Thank you for your comments, and for staying with us. I agree, and I would never park in a handicapped space either. But, as for a handicapped room, we are required to have several rooms of this type. Of course, if we have a guest with those needs, they will always get the room they are required to have. In...

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights for wife's b-day. Chose hotel based upon other reviews on TripAdvisor. Big mistake!!! Pros: Walking distance to beach, great sunset views at the beach, beach was clean and uncrowded. Cons: Room was much smaller than appeared in photos. Very tiny. Foul odor coming from the drain in the bathroom was so bad we...

We are truly sorry you did not enjoy anything about your stay with us. I know the breakfast is not extravagant, but we are not advertising it as such. We do offer pastries, coffee, and juices. The plantation shutters are not black outs, but, if they are facing up, they block out almost all of the light. It looks like...

I almost don't want to tell you about this hotel because it is that good!!! Price is amazing for the quality of stay you receive. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Cannot beat this location being walking distance to EVERYTHING including the beach, bars, and restaurants. By far my favorite place in California.

Spent a long weekend here, straight off the plane from UK. Room was large and very clean, bed comfortable, environment quiet. Location is very good, towards the quiet end of Mission Blvd but just a short walk from plenty of eateries, and the beach is about 2 minutes walk away. Staff (you don't see many staff at motels!) all very...

Yes, there are so many choices of restaurants within walking distance of the property. I think you probably made at least five different choices during your stay for dinner, being that there are easily 25 - 30 choices within walking distance. Most of the prices are fair to moderately expensive, especially on the boardwalk. But, like you said, there are...
