The best thing of this place was the location and the reception black man guy. So cute and friendly! Place not so clean and so rustic . No towels changing and anything you asked extra was denied. One month is a lot of time here but during the Christmas time was fine cause of everything around there make you feel... More

It's the most affordable hotel in SD. It's location is nothing less than perfect, there is a troller station just few steps from the hotel, the Gaslamp Quarter is very close and it gives many gastronomic and entertaining options. To sum it up, it is cheap, comfortable and well located.

J Street Inn is a long stay residence, There is a lot of foreign students living in this place and having english class in San Diego. The rooms can be different from one to another but every room has a bathroom (toilet and bath, no washbasin) and a place to "cook" (microwave, fridge, sink). The front desk can be friendly... More

I stayed here for 5 weeks as a foreign student. For the price, the rooms are good. But unfornately it's not very clean and the rooms in the 1st floor are very gloomy. The best point in this hotel is the location, near Seaport Village and the Gaslamp Quarter.

I stay here for work, which my employer pays for the room. The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is in central downtown San Diego. It is within walking distance to just about everything: Seaport Village, the Embarcadero, Petco Park, Gaslamp Quarter, Horton Plaza which has a 24hr Fitness Sport, Santa Fe depot where you can catch...

I just stayed at the J St. Inn for the 7th time over the last 8 years, each time as a tourist. You can believe all the positive reviews and descriptions, ignore the negative. The folks behind the desk are friendly and helpful. When I arrived at around 9 am, Todd checked me in and handed me my key in... More

I just stayed here in Oct 2007 for the meeting at convention center. It's very convenient and very close to the convention center. The price is good. The rate is a flat rate/ week- $280 ($309 including tax) per week, even you stay 1 nigth or 6-7 nights. So, if you plan to stay in San Diego for whole week,... More

I am a female traveller and have stayed at the J Street Inn three times and each time was for 3 mnths. I wouldn't recommend it as a hotel, but as a long stay it is great. My double room worked out at aprox £20 per night (after 6 wks you get a refund of tax). Most of the people... More

Ok, I knew when I read the other reviews what to expect but I didn't think it would be this bad, but it was. Lets start with the moment we stepped into the "Inn" the clerk at the front desk was not very helpful at all he has a rather dry and somewhat nasty demeanor. When asked about the area... More
