Staying just the night in this wonderful city, the hotel in under the main flight path into the airport so you can fiercer yourself back just looking at the planes, sort of handy. The rooms were ok sized, decent showers and a small kitchenette with microwave and sink. Free breakfast which was as you expect for a freebie, not the... More

The rooms are a little small, but comfortable and reasonably priced. We had just arrived from Mexico so anything up to American standards was a welcome change. All went well. the In-window a/c was a little loud, but all else was good and welcome. Free Saturday/Sunday parking in front of the hotel made check-in and check-out a breeze. The staff... More

Overall good stay, bed was awful- very squeaky and requires replacement. Room was aged, however ok for price. Smell of weed/pot was fairly constant throughout duration of stay. The hotel is directy underneath the airports flight path with may bother some, with the window closed is reasonably quiet. Around a 15 minute walk uphill from DT San Diego. We didnt... More

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!!
