The neighborhood is a typical downtown area with an assortment of people and things to do. Near bars and great choice of restaurants. Staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a place to do laundry and an exercise room. Units are nicely decorated but needs more lights.

When you buy a timeshare part of the benefit should be spending time with family. We were here for 3 days and were approached at least 6 times. Just say NO! And keep saying NO! The hotel is in a nice location with great restaurants. Be prepared to spend $30 a day plus tax for parking!

Price is high for an efficiency apartment. Upside: rooms are clean, spacious, comfortable, convenient to convention center and tourist destinations. Downside: the don't clean the room or change linens (they will do so for a daily fee,) and the street can get very noisy at night.

If you like bars, clubs, good food and fun this this hotel is the perfect location for your stay. It is located in the Gas Lamp district which is home to those things I mentioned before as well as near the trains, bus stops, the mall and several other attractions.

This property is in a great location. It is less than a 15 minute Uber ride from the USMC Recruit Depot. You can walk a block to grab a bus to the famous San Diego Zoo and Balboa park. It was just a short 12 minute ride. It is walking distance from Little Italy. The place is nice, clean and... More

The Wyndham Harbour Lights is centrally located in the Gaslamp quarter of San Diego. The rooms were nice but a little small, the beds were comfy and there's a small kitchenette in the room. There's plenty of eateries and bars near the Wyndham. The nightlife on the weekends are really lively and a bit noisy. The only downside was that... More

Great stay right in the middle of downtown. Room was spacious and staff was very pleasant without being too pushy regarding the sales presentation. They have laundry and a pretty nice fitness center. Location was perfect and everything is within a 10-20 minute drive. The valet parking was not up to par and had to wait a while to bring... More

WOW. Great place to stay in the heart of downtown. Staff are very friendly and willing to take that extra step, rooms are super nice and clean! Laundry facility, workout and sauna down in the basement. Our room had a nice small balcony with a view of dowtown area. Only downside it has no pool and elevator runs super slow.
