We stayed here on a last-minute trip last month. Not quite what we are used to (we like jacuzzis and restaurants on site) but so worth staying here. Many great restaurants are nearby and I was able to get in a good run with the hills and quiet(er) streets. Really close to downtown and you can walk to places you'd... More

A nice little hotel with a garden like setting. Good friendly staff. Clean, orderly rooms and relatively quiet. Kind of an oasis in the middle of downtown San Diego. Close to easy on and off of freeways but not right near the freeway.

Great hotel with nice sized room at a decent price. It is about half way between the start and finish lines for the half marathon and so I will be able to walk both directions. Good wifi, great location and comfortable bed. Parking is tight as there are limited spaces, but priced reasonably....

Excellent value for a holiday weekend. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Parking can sometimes be difficult when the hotel is full. Breakfast was a nice touch but get there well before the hotel stops serving, otherwise it's slim pickings!

I stayed two nights in the Cabrillo while my daughter had a baby at the Naval Hospital close by. I arrived really late and had concerns about parking that late at night. The staff had reserved me a spot in the parking lot which was wonderful as it has very limited parking. My overall stay was great. The only negative... More

This small older hotel in San Diego downtown is a little gem. The place is not fancy and decor is dated, but it is clean well run and comfortable. The hotel is close by car to everything in the county and on foot you can walk to Horton Plaza and the Gaslamp district, although I walk all over downtown from... More
