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

I arrived in town early for a work function at the Hotel Del Cornoado (a magnificent place btw), so I had to find one nights' accommodation for my girlfriend and me. We have been saving every nickel and dime for an upcoming trip, so we did not have a lot of money ti spend. This narrowed down our options quite... More

Had no complaints. Breakfast was ok for a budget hotel. Room was clean. Service was good. Right next to Balboa Park and Downtown, literally. Although there no actual hotel parking, there is meter parking and street parking at all hours of the night. Never felt unsafe.

Started out with very unwelcoming and unhelpful front desk staff- took us asking 4 times before getting clarification of how to get out of the front office and to the room. The elevator and room had a funky smell. The room was tiny and felt unclean immediately upon walking in. The first thing we did was look to see if... More
