Loved the service. The lady at the front desk was very accommodating. We were within walking distance of most of the places we wanted to visit. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. The room was clean. Only minor drawback was the toilet seat was round, the toilet was oval shaped.

Booked room through mbrace which we later learned used priceline. When we arrived (10 minutes after booking), the lady let us take a room key to look at the room before checking in. We looked at the room and facilities and immediately decided we didn't want to stay(old, cramped, didn't appear to be clean or safe). She told us we... More

I made my reservation for comic con week back in September. Called to verify the reservation and they said the reservation was cancelled. Didn't give any other explanation. They didn't even try to offer any kind of discount or anything to help resolve the situation. The same room I had booked is now 4x as much as my reserved room.... More

I got two rooms for the night, one for myself, and the other for my friends. Both rooms were very cramped. My room you could not use the AC due to the loud noise it generated, and there was no other ventilation. There was no phone. When I was checking out, they did not seem to care whether I liked...

This was a nightmare. I was bitten by bugs, the room was dirty, smelly and the owners are dishonest and purposely charged me two nights when I stayed only ONE. We checked in at this hotel on April 5th. We only chose this hotel because there was a convention and all the other hotels were booked. When I checked in... More

The lot is limited as to the number of vehicles it can accommodate. Saturday night it was full - but the manager was ready to help us find a place to... More

The first thing I will say about the Harborview Inn & Suites is that it is perfectly adequate for a stay in San Diego. It's situated in Little Italy and about a 20 minute walk to Downtown depending on your pace. The price is good, but you get what you pay for. Room is a little dated, linens have that... More
