As others have said, this is a clean hotel with an extremely attentive and friendly staff. They really seem to try hard to "go the extra mile," and are generally very responsive. Location is good, an easy walk from Gas Lamp district, convention center, etc. Uber rides to just about everything in the area were less than $5. For the... More

This property was chosen for a last minute getaway. Being only a two hour drive, San Diego is one of our favorite areas to visit. Although we prefer to stay downtown, hotel room rates do influence our choice. Several conventions were in session during the time of our visit so hotels vacancies and room rates were at a premium. We... More

Stayed here ever time we visit San Diego for its convenience, friendly staff and well serviced rooms, clean and quiet but close to down town and the airport. Breakfasts are great. Always return to the same hotel every time we visit and as a stopover for Baja trips.

This hotel is very well located. It is near all the activities in Gaslamp and several of the activities in the area such as the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park. It caters to a more budget conscious traveller as breakfast is included. It lack amenities and the parking is rather expensive at $15/night.

We booked a double-bed room, which while small, was spotless clean, bath included. Nothing fancy, it just does the job. Beds are comfortable. Right across the street there's a convenience store, for buying water, or milk. Perfect for the price.
