This trendy, charming hotel is in a great location, walking distance to the waterfront, downtown and gaslamp quarter. We arrived just in time for some tasty and relaxing happy hour crackers, cheese, beer and wine, out on the patio with friendly guests. The only problem was that our basement room had a musty smell, which I know for some people... More

We were greeting when walking thru the door to a friendly greeting and taken to a very clean and refurbished. The room was a mix of new items along with characteristics of it's 1920 heritage. All the staff was friendly and helpful. The happy hour had a great mix of beer tastings and wines along with tasty snacks. Breakfast was... More

I stayed here for business on the advice of coworkers who have been returning for years. We all love older buildings and bed & breakfast type hotels. This did not disappoint. A hidden gem wedged between a trendy neighborhood and a freeway, minutes from India Street (Little Italy). The staff are super helpful and are eager to hear about where... More

This is a very nice old hotel that has kept its original look when updated. Walking distance to little Italy and the bay. The food in little Italy was outstanding. It's only a 10 minute drive to the zoo and museums. Nightlife galore. If you are a beer enthusiast bottlecraft is walking distance also. Best beer store I have ever... More

My husband and I booked this Bed and Breakfast for our Anniversary. The pictures on the hotel website were very pretty and I liked the location of the hotel. Unfortunately, when we arrived I was greatly disappointed. Word of caution...the hotel is on super busy grape street. The hotel lobby was pretty and the gentleman helping us to our room... More

Our family of three (teenage son) booked a suite for a two night stay.The one bedroom suite was surprisingly large in size. Beds were comfortable with lots of pillows. The breakfast consisted of juice, coffee, tea, granola, and great croissants. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Recommended restaurants in nearby Little Italy were exceptional. We walked to San Diego... More

This charming little hotel was great in almost every way. It was very clean and breakfast was delicious with high quality food. There are outdoor courtyards with water fountains to block the noise. All the rooms are different adding to the charm and individuality. I can't say enough about the staff who were especially friendly, informative, and polite especially the... More

Delightful place! Very clean, charming and the location is so great that you will never have to move your car! Adorable European-like patio gardens. Welcoming and accommodating staff. Everything is just plain pleasant and inviting!

It was our first visit to San Diego and we had a wonderful time there. The staff was very helpful. The breakfast granola and croissants were too good! The room we stayed in had a kitchenette which was perfect. Our room did not face any road so there was less noise. The room and bathroom was well maintained and clean.... More

Charming place with an inviting personality. Every room and hallway is different and unique. It felt more like a bed and breakfast experience than that of a hotel! We were originally given one room upstairs with a shower only and then asked if there was one available with a bathtub. The host switched us immediately without hesitation. We were initially...
