If you are looking for a cheap rate close to the CBD and the water then this is the answer. Unfortunately it is also located next to the hwy & directly under a flight path, which gives you a great view of the landing gear on a plane. The rooms have an overpowering odour and the air con hums loud... More

This property is more of a half way house. I'm glad that they can serve people in the neighborhood getting back on their feet, but the level of noise was intolerable. I was told by the staff that there is nothing that they will do when the guests want to party outside until 4-5 AM. If you're looking for sleep,... More

My wife and I just stayed here for several days while visiting San Diego, and it was great! The location is downtown and very close to Balboa park (there is some airplane noise but having a/c on covered up the noise). The price was great and the customer service was superb. I especially appreciate Darryl Duran's excellent care. He went... More

We stayed here over the comic con weekend and were pleasantly surprised! It was a small room but perfect for what we were after - somewhere to sleep and dump our belongings. The hotel even assisted us with looking after our bags while we explored town after checkout time. The only downside was the planes are pretty loud, but we... More

Worst hotel ever. Bad behavior to the guests and are not available to help. It is a great city, but I will never stay in that hotel again. The employees at the front desk are terrible handling issues and people.

I had a reservation for the hotel for Friday and Saturday night the same weekend of Comic con. I was not visiting for Comic con but as you can imagine, hotels were hard to find and very expensive. I was so lucky to find this place. The front desk was amazing, especially Darryl. They gave us a complimentary bottle of... More

Rooms are simple but perfectly fine. We had a huge closet in our room to put away all our things. The courtyard is very pretty. The manager, Darryl was super nice and friendly. A simple breakfast was included which was perfect to start our day at Comic Con!!

I stayed here before and the rates were reasonable compared to other hotels in the area especially since it was a holiday weekend. A few blocks away from downtown and Horton Plaza and this time around I learned if I walk down Cedar St I can walk right into Little Italy. The breakfast items are plentiful, the internet connection is... More

Special thanks go to Bobby, Darryl, Alicia and the lady in the breakfast room! Thanks to all of you for helping us far more than expected. Your attitude is marvellous! We enjoyed every moment in San Diego. God bless you all, Best regards, Edina Barta and the Hungarian team of 7!

I had the unfortunate experience of having to go to San Diego to a conference, and being cash-strapped I checked in here. I paid a fraction more than $60 a night, which I assume is good for SD? The hotel is frankly a bit odd. Screaming jets fly over most of the time (although mercifully I think they cease during... More
