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. Arrived at the hotel which is very close to the airport but in secured... More

The hotel property is located within walking distance of Historic Old Town, a ton of Mexican restaurants and a Trolley station. We never got in our car during our two day stay. There is a liquor store with a deli right across the street. It takes only a couple minutes to make a quick run for beer, water, soda or... More

We just return home from an Easter weekend and this hotel is awesome. No its not your typical Marriott but the customer service is the same. We did have a snag on the actual room we booked which was the 2 room suit, it was unavailable for our first night but Blair made sure we were still satisfied. She charged... More

On a mini-vacation to San Diego with my daughter and granddaughter, we stayed in this hotel. The hotel was old but clean, however it is time to update this facility! The bathroom fan did not always work, there was an odd smell in the courtyards and the spa was not working. With the cost of parking ($17) and taxes, my... More

We needed a hotel to stay in before an early flight out of San Diego airport. We chose this one due to the closeness to the airport and the shuttle that was provided. It exceeded our expectations! We were able to park our rental car along the curb while we unloaded our car and got the suitcases to the room.... More
