The beds were comfy however, the room had mold and I have allergies to mold. The bathroom window was moldy and hideous. When the air conditioner was turned on it smelled like wet dog and I started coughing and sneezing. That was with a 3am arrival due to airline cancellations and delays. I found another place to stay that same...

I am so disappointed to hear of your experience at our hotel. If I am not mistaken, we spoke and I did not charge you for the night you did not stay. Additionally, you mentioned wanting to stay with a friend as a reason for check -out. My team and I make every effort to insure a pleasant and comfortable...

I was there 2 nights with my boyfriend, since we were just going to the zoo and then we continued moving. The hotel is small, the rooms are ok and the personnel is nice. Breakfast was nice but they didn't have many different food options. Wifi worked fine, is a good place to just spend the night. However, both days...

Helpful, courteous staff. Rooms were practical yet comfortable and decent coffee in the room as well as the front desk area. Close to several places on Shelter Island and Point Loma. 10 minutes to the Airport or the attractions by the bay in San Diego.

It's a really good value for what you get! Specially if you are not a single person, that way the price is amazing! Very clean bathroom, a little less cleaner room(totally acceptable), nice view of the water-side if you are in upstairs room. The staff were mostly friendly. But you have to ask for every thing you need; do not...

Older building, older furniture, but well kept. Great location for me, near marinas. Nice sheets. Pleasant staff. Better value than nearby chain hotels, even though the "breakfast" was unimpressive. Even with buying a breakfast, the cost was less.
