Booked this hotel sight unseen because of the location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The property is older and that is part of the charm. Our room was quite large and unique. View from the roof at night was great. Breakfast was pretty minimal.

This is a 1913 building which began its life as an office building and has been converted to an all suites hotel and time share. It is interesting and well located in the Gaslamp area. The staff are friendly and helpful. On nice days, and I think San Diego has nothing but nice days, there is a roof top patio... More

I stayed here during the last week in May and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The room and bed was very comfortable and super clean. The mattress had a dust/bedbug proof cover around it. I especially favor places that do this because it gives me peace of mind. My room on the 6th floor was very quiet with little or... More

In the middle of Gaslamp quarter, nightlife is few meters from this very nice hotel. Hotel has 'vintage' furniture and style, but it's nice. The hall has a strange smell but staff is kind, room are big (we got a suite at very good price!), and the terrace where breakfast is served is super!

The benefit of this hotel is the location, you are super close to everything happening in the Gaslamp. That's also the biggest con. The gorgeous windows that are in the room do not block out noise at all. Which tends to go on very late/early into the morning. Room was clean and comfortable.

My husband and I, along with my cousin and his wife, stayed at the Gaslamp 3/8/15 – 3/13/15. Pros: Location, location, location You are close to the trolley and bus stops. You can buy a 1 day pass for $5, 2 days for $9, 3 days for $12 and 4 days for $15. This pass gives you unlimited rides on... More

clean, comfortable rooms, great location and very friendly, accommodating staff. The view from the roof is breathtaking. You won't find a better hotel for the price downtown. Stayed here twice, definitely staying here again

This is one of these places where looks are deceiving. The facilities are outdated (although that is part of the charm) but all is clean, comfortable and well worth its value. The location is perfect in the Gaslamp quarter. Only downside is the lack of free wifi.

Spacious suite was complete with all amenities, including refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and dishes. Continental breakfast served on the rooftop patio was very pleasant. Beds were comfortable and the rooms quiet. Lots of dining, shopping, and entertainment options within easy walking distance.

We were in town over Memorial Day for the Stones Concert! The hotel was perfect--friendly staff, walking distance (10-12 minutes) to Petco Park and surrounded by bars and restaurants. (Warning, it can be noisy!) No need for a car once you're there. The room was small but clean and comfortable. The hotel is in an interesting historic building. The rooftop... More
