Spent 5 nights! Very close to the Gaslamp area and Little Italy. It was clean, convenient and the management was very helpful. Will definitely return! It is one of our favorite vacation spots! Diane and Shirley, Princeton, Illinois.

So glad that I decided to stay at this hotel conveniently located to the airport and walking distance to the harbor, Little Italy and Gaslamp district. Ample choices for fine and casual dining with a Starbucks just around the corner. As soon as I arrived Pinar at the front desk greeted me with a smile and excellent customer service. Upon... More

Since the moment they took my reservation until the check out the service we received (specially from Pinar, the front desk agent) was outstanding. Parking is small, true. But I never had a hard time finding street spots available. The room was clean and comfortable. Of course it's not a 5 stars Hotel, and for those who are expecting that,... More

Great customer service. Lila was arwsome. She gave us a room with a balcony. Clean rooms, decent room space and located close to Little Italy in San Diego. Very satisfied stay and won't hesitate to come back again. It is about a 15 minute walk to the Gaslamp area or you can just hop on to a taxi for $8!!!

Staff was rude and cold. The room smelled like piss and dirt. There was no soap or shower products. The bed was hard and squeaky and to top it all off the cable went out in the entire hotel at just 830pm and didn't get fixed until the morning. When we called the front desk about the tv we got...

We do our best to accommodate everyone. Sometimes we fall short. If you read the recent reviews, we have upgraded many things in our hotel and we are a limited service hotel and we have worked on our customer service and our reviews are better and show it. Your case was very specific and we are very sorry that we... More

Every time I go to San Diego to go out in the GasLamp District I stay here. I gave this an excellent review because of location and the price.. For down town San Diego you will not find a better price than $69. The location is perfect next to Little Italy and the harbor. Its a Taxi ride away from... More

Clean and comfortable and not too noisy. The breakfast is minimal: coffee, bread and butter and jam. Nice persons as staff. Very close to little Italy, which has good Italian restaurants and some night life.

I booked on hotels.com and got a bargain price. Very conveniently located. Room was small, but bed was comfortable and everything clean. No frills, but quite pleasant and a killer deal. Very friendly helpful staff. I would be very happy to stay here again.

This is a nice little surprise in the middle of a busy area. The rooms are VERY clean and there was a very comfortable bed. It was great that they have their own little parking lot as well, with easy access to and from I-5. There was only 2 very minor drawbacks for me. First, there was no clock radio,... More
