Extremely Clean Hotel. Beds a little soft. Nicer older hotel with a good hot breakfast. Bathrooms a little small but extremely clean!! Near Gaslamp area so no need to drive anywhere!!! Staff very friendly and quite helpful.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

Driving into the small parking lot of the hotel, I wasn't sure what to expect. It looked like they really tried to give a garden feel to it with hanging succulents and different plants all around. I arrived at 11, too early to check in but they let me park in their lot for the $15 (wish it were included),....

This location was great, visually appealing from the outside and everything you need inside. Parking is tricky but if arriving after 6 street parking is free. Parking is 15 dollars so not really a deal breaker

This building is old, which means that the rooms (especially bathrooms) are very small but super clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly. Close to our planned activities. Would stay there again.

Lovely little hotel with nice, clean rooms and facilities. Excellent front of house staff. Carlos was so helpful in terms of the city, what to do and how to get around. 10 minute walk to the Gaslamp area.

My family of 4 stayed here in a family room, and we loved our 2-night stay. The folks at the hotel are friendly (esp. Carlos is really chatty and immensely informative!). The quaint and charming motel just kind of sticks out in the midst of modern buildings in the area, and yet is very quiet even though it sits at...

I very much appreciated this motel--the room was nicely sized, had a fridge and microwave, pretty bathroom tiles. Warm and helpful staff all around. Comfortable bed, everything clean, location convenient to Balboa Park. Amid all the high rises, this Spanish style two story motel feels like a different era. Quiet, pleasant, I'd gladly stay there again.

I love to stay in that traditional Motel in the middle of San Diego. Personal is exceptionally friendly. The rooms are clean and decorated. The best is the roof top terrace to hang out after a day in meeting rooms !

On business only two blocks away, this is the perfect place for us when traveling to San Diego. It is a haven of peace among glassy high-rise buildings. And, within easy walking distance to all the wonderful restaurants and attractions of the Gaslamp district without having to pay those prices. Building and rooms are due for a bit of a...

Convenient location for visiting zoo and downtown area. Quite good restaurant choices within blocks surround the place. Not the best neighborhood for long strolls, but a couple mile drive will get you just about anywhere in SD. Parking spaces are limited, but $15 per night charge is actually a bargain for that area. Quaint tiny guest rooms are very clean,...

“Hotel is only on two floors. We were on the first, three rooms from an end and it was quiet.”
