Recently I stayed at the hotel for a conference. It is in a very convenient location close to restaurant and convention center. For the price I paid, it was a good deal because I could not find other hotels in waling distance to the convention center at lower than $250/night. The stay was OK. The room was small, but staff...

The room was clean, housekeeping and the front desk staff were all above excellent! The room was in disrepair however, and the shower head needed replacing, tile in the bathroom were chipped, it was unsightly. I expected a small room and that's what I got. I didn't think the elevators were as slow as everyone complains. The night before I... More

The reviews are spot on. Know what you are getting. Yes, you are getting a small room, with slow, old elevators. But, you are also getting a great staff, clean rooms, the cheapest overnight parking in the Gaslamp, an absolute amazing location with walking distance to everything, including the marina, nightlife, Petco Park, a Starbucks around the corner, and an...

Great location. Nice rooftop patio. I had a great two night stay. Check in/check out was fast. Many restaurants and clubs within walking distance. The hotel is old, small rooms and quirky elevators. I was on the third floor (#306) my room faced the street. Gaslamp is a busy place at night. Lots of people out for a good time.... More
