Took the bus to the zoo from Old Town & it was great. Did not drive anywhere, just public trans & it was cheap, fast & convenient. Close enough to Old Town to walk for dinner & transportation. Hotel was very clean, nice pool & the most friendly & helpful staff. Would highly recommend this Hotel...

Dear 331gladys, I am sure glad you enjoyed your stay with us in Old Town. You are so right that our hotel is conveniently located to the transit center and Old Town itself that many people do not even need a vehicle while they are staying with us. I will be sure to pass along your compliments to my entire... More

Good location, not as good as Hacienda, but good and rooms are much more updated. Stay on the far end unit closest to downtown and you can park on the street, then walk into the gate to get to your room. If not, you can spend a fair amount of time walking to and from your car. Rooms were recently... More

Pros: I checked out @ 11:00 am Cons: Roaches, Rude Staff, Michael the night reception guy is miserable & has no manners, horrible customer service. The breakfast is horrible. I would never stay here again in my life, it is so bad. I will take my business elsewhere, I wouldn't even stay here for free if it was an option.

It's a nice Inn. The building is a bit old but renovated. It has a nice breakfast area however there is nothing special about the breakfast. Nice room. Service is ok. We didn't have shampoo in our room once we arrived but they nicely provided some for us. You have to pay $17 per night for parking. The parking spots... More

Easy to arrive. Walking distance from Old Town. Nice hotel, nice room. Clean and confortable. Breakfast very simple, and crowded around 8 and 8:30 am. You can park on the streets nearby, although the Hotel has parking lot (US$ 17).

The staff is very friendly, the room was clean. I'm a frequent traveler, for a price point of $175.00 a night - I was expecting more. I'm good with old facilities, however, it was beyond its value. The rooms have updates but the hotel looks tired... It's obvious my view is different from others as the hotel appears to be... More

Perfect location to stay at in San Diego. Everything we did was within 10-25 minutes which was perfect to us! We were always able to find street parking, which is free, which was always an added bonus! Plenty of spots and worse case you have to walk a block or two. Within walking distance to Old Town - a cute... More

Called the hotel to ask for the shuttle to pick me up from the airport. They arrived in less than 10 minutes. The driver made sure to tell us about the local area, restaurants and even the times for breakfast and other info on the hotel.
