Hotel was at the north end of the gaslamp area. Hotel was clean, cheap and great staff. The original St. James hotel with interesting room layouts. Room 716 has two bedrooms one has the sink in it and the bathroom between the two rooms.

At first when I arrived I was appalled at how small my 1 bed room was ( I originally wanted a double bed but all rooms were sold out). As the days went on I learned to appreciate the hotel for the historic landmark that it was. As you explore the hotel you will see gold plates that explain a... More

A perfect day trip to downtown San Diego. Great location for the hotel, being in the heart of the gaslamp district. The staff were able to allow me to check in early, being that I arrived early afternoon by train. Although the rooms are rather small, it fits the nostalgia of the hotel. Everything is very well kept, and the... More

Hotel is in a great part of town. Staff were pleasant and helpful. However, the hotel is one of those old development projects where two of the '40's era cubby holes are turned into one modern room. Not this one. They're ridiculously tiny, definitely not comfortable.

Old, yes, but very dated. Automated checkout did not work. Air conditioner sounded like a 6 foot cricket being evicerated. Tiny tub with shower head at my nose. Never asked how was the stay at checkout...guess they don't want the truth. Glad we stayed on points but bad enough to make me cancel my Wyndham credit card.
