I trully enjoyed staying here. It is conveniently located close to downtown. The staff is very accommodating and welcoming. The hotel is located close to the airport as well as the San Diego marina. Located conveniently in the heart of the city there is no other better option then staying here

We booked late, and the price was a bit high for that hotel. However the room was good for its purpose, two big beds, fridge and a good connection of wifi. The bathroom was a bit old fashioned, only shower and difficult to regulate temperature. The cleaning was good and the staff kind. The situation is in midway from the...

Front desk staff is VERY COURTEOUS, & HELPFUL. We arrived early, & they got us into the very first room, quickly. Located on corner of a VERY BUSY INTERSECTION (cars & trucks going from the airport, to Rt. 5). At 7:30 A.M. on week-days, construction begins on a new park, right across the street, in which you can hear (until...

My husband and I had non-refundable, non-changealbe prepaid reservations booked through an outside source that, due to family medical reasons, we were unable to keep. This meant forefiting this money that the hotel could have kept. Without hesitation Vicki, the reservation manager, worked with me to find a date that not only fit my schedule but was within the same...

Our hotel understands that sometimes the circumstances are just not in the favor of our guests, so due to those unplanned inconveniences we tailor our policies to fit our guests' situation. I...

Very close to Little Italy and tram station. The room was clean enough and appropriate for price. The only thing I would diskike was that I could feel the vibration from trains running nearby, which was a little bit annoying.

I must admit I really didn't give much thought to hotel planning for a weekend trip to San Diego - after all, I needed a place to literally only sleep and shower, so price and location were the deciding factor, expectations shifted aside. Well, lucky me! The place was actually a very nice surprise, and definitely more than I had...

This inn had more of a motel feel to it than an inn & suites, but it was a lot cleaner than I expected. The parking was free, which was nice, and it was pretty close to the trolley stop. It was pretty close to Gaslamp District without the outrageous price, so it was good value for the money.

Thank you for reviewing our hotel, with respect we disagree we are more of an inn & suites as opposed to a motel as we offer complimentary breakfast, wifi, parking, and have a variety of rooms and suites available for our guests to choose from. We are proud that our housekeeping staff continue to provide clean and comfortable rooms for...

Stayed recently and the rooms were decent. I loved the location since its walking distance to a lot of different things. Best part of our stay was the awesome service provided by Nicole.

“Odd shaped table in room that didn't fit where it should be. Old beat up chair that wouldn't fit anywhere near the table. Old dresser with drawers that were always sliding out. Otherwise, good, clean room for the price and location.”
