This hotel had an excellent location and all of the services were exceptional for a person attending a conference at the downtown convention center in San Diego. If you are a walker the distance from the convention center to the hotel is a little over a mile, by taxi it is a little more than 3 minutes.

If you have to stay downtown San Diego, this is a nice, not too expensive place. It's easy to get to the Zoo and Balboa Park without having to fight the I-5 traffic. The place is cute, but modest, not sure it qualifies as a Plus.

This older but well maintained little motel was the perfect spot for our two-day stay in San Diego. The hot breakfast included a fine variety of choices, and includes an outdoor dining area when the weather is suitable ... which it is most of the time. This is San Diego! There is also a small elevator if need be to... More

Hotel is very well located for visiting the zoo and other highlights in the downtown area. Availability of parking, although pricey, is good. Room was well appointed but the king bed was a little too soft for our comfort. The free breakfast was well stocked with all the basic items including scrambled eggs, sausage and potatoes. Overall experience was excellent.

We had stayed at this lovely little downtown hotel when my son graduated from college, so when he got married, we decided this was a good, centralized place to stay. We had a large block of rooms reserved, as many family/friends were coming for the festivities. Hotel gave us a decent price for the rooms. Staff, especially Carlos, was very... More
