We were pleasantly surprised when checking into this timeshare. We booked a deluxe studio apartment that had both a king bed and queen pull out. The room was very clean and modern, with stove top and a big fridge, etc. My only dissatisfier was the shower. The water pressure is terrible! And the view was crappy, but that's minor. That...

We stayed at this hotel this past Dec 2014. It is located in the Gaslight District and near many bus lines that travel throughout the city. The only day we used a car is the day we drove up to La Jolla. Parking is expensive so if you plan to stay within the city of SD there is no need... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I couldn’t have said it better myself! We do have an advantage with our location right in the middle of the Gaslamp. With over 100 restaurants and 40 nightclubs in walking distance there is a lot of activity. Parking can be a challenge so we do offer valet service for... More

Older hotel, rooms were large and comfortable but our room was on the second floor facing the street and was VERY noisey. Mentioned it to staff twice and they were very apologetic but keep us in the same room.

We recently stayed at the Wyndham for two nights in late December. What a great place! All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We had a studio on the third floor overlooking 5th Avenue. The room was excellent. Very clean, with every amenity one could need. Even a stereo system with CD. Some street noise was to be expected... More

We had two studio suites for 5 nights. Very, very helpful staff from valet, doorman, front desk, cleaning and engineering staff. All very attentive. Location is perfect on 5th avenue. In the middle of entertainment. No on site parking, but there is 24hr valet with in/out. I was aware of possible noise concerns from other reviews, however, our experience was... More

We stayed at the Harbour Lights for nights, Dec. 14-18. Really a nice time! The clerk staff was very nice. Answered all questions! We were on a studio--there are 54 in the hotel. The concierge (Sierra) was superb! She really made us fell welcome! Many "perks" for the restaurants (including free-bees!), tours, and shows! Matt Diamond gave Wyndham owners a... More

My wife and I recently stayed at this condo hotel for 4 nights. We needed a central location near to the conference centre (I was attending an event) and near to transportation, shops and restaurants. It fitted the bill perfectly being smack bang in the middle of the Gaslight area. Given the very reasonable room rates, our expectations were modest.... More
