My boyfriend and I were traveling to San Diego for the weekend. We were planning to stay at this hotel Saturday night and another hotel on Sunday. The hotel is within walking distance of Downtown SD, Balboa Park, and Seaport Village. It's beautiful and cozy. The front desk clerk, Carlos, was so helpful in answering our questions. He knew the...

This little hotel was a fabulous find. nestled in between towering high rises this cute hotel offered a beautiful scape of suculants and palms customary to the area. A lush oasis in the concrete jungle with a gazebo on top to catch the color change of the sunrise (too bad there's a McDonalds sign there) Very clean, well managed with... More

small hotel, luxurious room, very helpful staff. The hotel is centrally located, easy to find. Their breakfast was excellent, great variety and well presented. For dinner, we ordered delicious meals from a restaurant in Little Italy and it was wonderful. We really enjoyed the comfortable bed, and the bathroom tile was beautiful. Good shower , too.

We had the best time at this hotel. It's an older hotel but very clean and well maintained. It's a hidden treasure in the middle of the city, a short walk from the Gaslamp District and reminiscent of New Orleans. The cost was affordable. Highly recommend.

My stay at the Cabrillo Garden Inn began with very good assistance at check in. My room on the lower floor was good for access and such but being in the corner of the motel resulted in a lack of exterior light and noise from above on the first night. The front desk staff assisted me with moving to an... More

We only needed a place to stay for one night and with all of the hotels in San Diego costing over $125 a night plus parking ($15), this wasn't a bad place to stay. Rooms are of average size, but the bathrooms are very small. Its a very small hotel with limited and tight parking, but as long as you... More

The front desk staff charged us three different times totaling $1,048.47 for a two night stay. We were then told the money would be back in our account in a few days. What good is that when we as a family had a budget for this trip. We ended up $700 short in our account that forced us to end... More

Just about 1 mile walk to the convention, but only a couple of blocks to all the eateries in the gas lamp district. The family enjoyed the retreat to this quaint hotel that feels a bit like a bed and breakfast with the outdoor wrought iron tables where we ate our delicious (and included!) breakfast. There's no pool, but they... More
