The hotel is walking distance from the beach so it's convenient. I like the free breakfast :simple but organized and well-stocked! Will definitely recommend to friends! There's free wifi, refrigerator, iron, hair dryer, microwave, coffee maker.

Overall a clean room and a comfortable bed. Staff was not trained in customer service. Coffee and juice machines were broken two of the three mornings. Carpet in the lobby stairway and hallway was filthy.

I had seen the good reviews on Trip Advisor so I thought I'd give it a try. We just needed a convenient inexpensive place to spend the night on our bike trip to San Diego. The hotel was clean and quiet and the staff was polite. The bedding and decor was pretty unexciting, typical budget hotel comforter and towels. I... More

We choose this hotel based on other reviews, and it lived up to its ratings. Our room was comfortable, updated, and very clean. It's an easy location for walking to restaurants and the beach. We had a room on the back side and it was very quiet. Breakfast was basic but adequate and well-presented.

We enjoyed walking to the beach and to local restaurants. The room was clean. The bathroom space felt small and the shower head was the lowest we'd ever seen. The air conditioner was a little noisy at night. The front desk people were friendly.

The hotel was clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was a 5 minute walk to the beach. We stayed in the first floor inside queen room, which I think was more recently updated. Nothing special, but absolutely no problems whatsoever. I've stayed in hotels that cost twice as much and had issues. I was skeptical about staying... More

We'd stayed at this hotel before, and came back when we we returned to the San Diego area. It's a great deal for the location--about 2 blocks from Stone Steps beach, about 4-5 blocks from Moonlight Beach. We were able to walk to the beach, restaurant, coffee, bars, shopping, the whole time while we were there. The rooms are a... More

The location is wonderful, the staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean. The Pannikin was one block up for pastries and coffee every morning, but the hotel also provided breakfast for the kids.
