I have stayed at many hotels from hilton to Motel 6. This is one of the best hotels I have stayed . The location is good, close to everything. The rooms are perfect. Not huge but at $140 you cant expect a palace. But what makes this place special is obviously the staff. I only met the night duty staff... More

Great little find in a big city. Inn is located in the NW of the city, within easy walk of most attractions. Cortez Hill Market is located across the street and onsite parking is provided (@$10 a night) The Inn is a green oasis, with potted plants aplenty. Accommodation is clean and comfortable, in-room safe a bonus. Carlos at the... More

My wife and I went to a medical conference in San Diego. Several large hotels were associated with the conference and charging discounted rates of $250 - $300 per night. I searched TripAdvisor for alternatives and saw great reviews for the BW Cabrillo Garden Inn. We stayed 5 nights there and were very pleased. It is a small hotel surrounded... More

I stayed here for the 2008 ESRI Conference, not exactly sure what to expect as one of the few hotels still in downtown that costs less than $200/night during the conference. It's only a few minutes walk to the trolley line (or a 20-25 minute walk to the convention center). The room was very nice, quiet, with a good bed... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in mid-July. We were on a road trip up the coast and started in San Diego. We really liked this small hotel. The staff was nice and we loved all of the plants and garden like features. It really made it seem like a garden in the middle of the city.... More

We stayed at this gem of a hotel for 3 nights pre-cruise. It is a small 2 storey garden oasis surrounded by high-rise towers. The staff were very friendly, the room was quiet and clean and a reasonable size, the bathroom small but perfectly fine. The breakfast was much better than I expected - cereal and pastries, fruit, juice, and... More

Staff was friendly and responsive. I asked for directions one time and the check-in lady was overly-helpful. The continental breakfast in the morning was not your crappy bread and fruit breakfast. They actually had eggs, bacon/sausage and other good foods. We were pleasantly surprised. The location was very close to the Gaslamp. A little bit of a walk, but not... More

I stayed there for a short time during a busy conference week. The place was quiet and clean. I loved the flowers and the easy access outside. Breakfast was served in the morning and I could eat it at one of tables set outside. Good way to start the day! The staff was friendly and helpful, and made me feel... More

I just wanted to let you know that this hotel was really GREAT. Instead of feeling like hotel, it felt more like staying at someone's home. The staff was very friendly and willing to help out if we needed anything. It was the first time I felt like a guest instead of a customer. You should be very proud of... More
