The staff is very unprofessional and rude, the women specifically. The rooms all smelled like smoke and felt dirty and stuffy. The blow dryer and TV did not work. And they charged me twice on my credit card. I would never come back to this hotel even if it was free.

If travelling on your own, or as a couple and want to cut costs a little. The rooms are quite small. This place its reasonable & it is very close to the airport, & to a few of their attractions such as the zoo. There is a great beauty salon 2 streets away called "HighBrow" which was one of the...

First of all, I came at the wrong weekend because all the hotels in the Gaslamp were booked so the price for this place was about $50 more then their usual price. Any who that's a vacation for you. My favorite part of this place is the location. It's about 15 minute walk west of Balboa Park and 15 minute... More

The nite time front desk girl Breanne (spelling?) must really hate her job, seemed full of anger, & was queen of the one word answers, and could have easily volunteered helpful information that you really need to know. The day time guy seemed ok at checkout, was smiling, a good sign. The rest was what you can expect for an... More

As with other reviews of this property; the two people at the front desk were excellent. Please note: this is on the final approach for the airport; so you will hear continous aircraft until 10pm. The common area is clear and nicely appointed with local trees and plants. The rooms are smaller than most cruise ships. I am estimating 150... More

The room was ok, but small. Bathroom was clean. Not good choices for breakfast and the three toasters that doesn't worked. Near from a bus line, but not central (ex: to go to old town, 2 transfers)...

We stayed during Comicon, so this was a last minute choice. Their prices had been raised more than double their regular rates (some hotels in town had tripled theirs). Pros: Conveniently located 25 minute walk from the centre of downtown/Gaslamp district. Less than 5 minute drive. Close to shopping and minutes from beach. Convenient to airport. Cons: The free wifi... More

It was difficult to find accommodation as we stayed during Comicon, so we took a gamble on this place. I feel that they have set the wrong expectations by charging more than they should. Pros: Conveniently located 25 minute walk from the centre of downtown/Gaslamp district. Also, a short 20 minute walk from San Diego Zoo (which is a must-do).... More

We stayed in San Diego for 3 nights at this hotel. Staff was okay. Hotel is in a good location to explore the gaslamp district, visit the zoo, etc. The problem is that the rooms are fairly noisy so you can here every conversation of people sitting in the yard. Wasn't a problem for us since we brought earplugs which... More
