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

This place is very good value: room with refrigerator, microwave, and wireless internet. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. The staff was quite helpful. Just one block away from Little Italy's restaurant row. Only downside is lack of FOX News Channel.

I travel 100+ days per year and there are times when I just need a place to sleep, take a shower and get ready for my meeting.

Stayed with my husband here for one night. The room wasn't too big but had a nice character, a bit different than the regular chain motels we went to. The staff were nice. Room was clean. Parking isn't a problem, unless you get there in the middle of the night.

I was initially skeptical to say reading some reviews, but once I arrived those reviews flew right out my head. The staff was very friendly and gave me advice on what to do in San diego, where to eat, etc... This location was great (especially for food) in the heart of little Italy. The rooms were great, nice comforters, and... More

Thank you, we do have a great location and the food in Little Italy is superb! Although we do have a parking lot for guests that stay with cars, we are in walking distance to many eateries. We have made many upgrades to the hotel and we are very happy to hear that it is showing. Thank you for your... More

Excellent stay, great location and no issues with the room. Breakfast was basis but hey theres plenty of alternatives. Don't be put of by the planes going overhead, We settled down at 10pm both nights we stayed (worn out by daily activities) and slept soundly until the mornings. Afternoon/evening receptionist excellent, very heplful indeed.
