This place was ok...nothing special. We were in San Diego to see things and do things not sit in fancy hotels lol. It had a great location near convenience stores, coffee shops, and public transit to take into the city. The sunrise from the ocean was great as the hotel sits on a hill. Bed was nice, staff could do... More

Convenient, clean and located in walking distance to Little Italy. The room was very small and oldish, but good for a one night stay. Also reasonable. The desk clerk arranged for our taxi and was helpful. We would do it again.

The hotel has seen better days and is a bit run down, but the owners are gradually upgrading. The price is reasonable--at least for San Diego, but don't expect the Ritz. Our room was spacious with a microwave and fridge, and it was immaculate. Every person on the staff was friendly and helpful, including the maids. The breakfast (toast and... More

My family and I had the very worst hotel experience due to the predatory practices of this hotel. It started when our "confirmed" reservation thru Expedia fell through, and the Expedia staff sent us to this hotel. The hotel was a "low rate" economy box - old, run-down, no charm whatsoever, and worth no more than $100 per night. Rather... More

So, decided to be spontaneous and booked a last minute stay in San Diego so that I could go down with a friend. Chose the hotel based on price since it was the cheapest option that was close to Hillcrest and Balboa Park. The person that checked me in was a bit on the slow side and attributed that to... More

Management refused to work with active duty military under PCS orders to cancel and refund unused nights. Hotel location is the only plus. It smells, parking is a nightmare, breakfast is coffee and toast, rooms are small and dirty but the rude staff is the worst!

When I booked this motel the price went up $20 a night when I confirmed. The motel is older and shows it's age it needs a upgrade. The Coke machine was broken and the ice machine was broken. The free breakfast is priced right. It was just a peace of toast and coffee, no juice or milk no nothing. Very... More

Little Italy was such a pleasant place to stay in San Diego and Harborview is situated so you can go to dinner at one of the charming restaurants and walk to Bilbao Park and the zoo during the day and to trolley station for Old Town. Really can walk so many places from here. We loved the craft cocktail bar... More
