I ended up here after all the hostels were booked up for the night. It's pretty far form the center of town, features sketchy clientele, the rooms are nothing to write home about, and it's right next to the highway, but if you're looking for a cheaper option to catch some sleep, and not somewhere to hang out, then this...

Very noisy, trash collected at 05:30AM with loud beeps, cranky bed, showerhead not working correctly. Had a shipment coming in received by front office - the tape seal was opened and re-closed with a regular tape on top of the customized seal - two items missing... I cannot be 100% sure it occurred there but this has never happened before... More

Not much to say about this hotel. It is very basic and not much to it. It has enough of the basics to make your stay comfortable. There is a seperatly room that has a random couch in it and nothing else in the room. Not sure why you would choose to sit in there because there isn't anything in... More

I grabbed this room through hotwire for the sunday following comic con. I had hoped to get as nice of a room as I had done before comic con. Nope. this room was terrible. There was mold around the tub, it smelled like they had permitted smoking in the room before (or someone had) and I even had some breathing... More

The rooms were not at all the cleanest. But the staff was very sincere and really cared about your experience. Non of them were wearing name badges. But they were one of the nicest hotel team that I have experienced in a long time. So it made up for the lack of sheets or curtains

I was a little sceptical at first about this hotel because of reviews, but we booked it anyway because the price was resonable and we were only in town for a run, but the hotel was great, Staff was friendly and very helpful it is within walking distance to just about everything in downtown it was only about a mile...

I stayed here in February 2015 while on a business trip. I made the reservation online without seeing the property except for the pics on the Internet. When I arrived to get my room the first thing I noticed was that it was nothing like the pictures. It was very run down and there were people sleeping all over the... More

I decided to stay here after talking to a hotels.com employee and he assured me the place did not have a parking fee or a resort fee. That was really important and the rooms were exceptionally clean. I would recommend this place to a savvy traveler.

I just wanted a clean room, a shower and a bed for a reasonable rate. No frills, just the necessities. San Diego Downtown Lodge delivered that and were very willing to heat my bottled water in a pot several times during my two day stay for me to drink, so I could manage my bronchitis while traveling. Thank you.
