This hotel is centrally located in the gaslamp district which at night really comes alive. The hotel itself is very very old and spooky the hallways leading to the rooms looked like the hotel in the shinning. Besides that it was a good hotel there are 2 drawbacks 1 they charge for internet who does that nowadays I mean really... More

This hotel was absolutely amazing. The staff were A+, every single one of them going over the top to be sure our stay was great. Especially Merry at the front desk, she was so amazing. When we checked in she gave us a cheat sheet to the city, and was helpful at all times, she always had a smile on... More

This is a wonderful hotel with great charm and old world style. The one bedroom suite was roomy and well appointed with a kitchenette. The highlight is the wonderful staff that makes you feel comfortable and cared for. Merry is exceptional and her Monday neighborhood walk was informative and fun; it should not be missed. The location is in the... More

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
