We were asked one time if we were interested in sitting through their sales presentation. We declined, and that was the end of it. There was absolutely NO pressure. The property is centrally...

I just had to give some positive feedback about how wonderful this staff is. I was attending a conference at the San Diego convention center just a half mile down the road.

My wife and I took a little winter getaway to San Diego the week before Christmas. The Harbour Lights worked very well for us. We stayed in room 618 I believe, which is on the street side and has the rounded Windows. Upon arrival, check in was quick and easy and our room was clean with everything in good condition.... More

The staff was very hospitable and the one bedroom suite was immaculate. Very good walking location in the Gas Lamp District! We were a block from the trolley station, and it ended a couple of blocks from the Midway Air Carrier and seaside shops and restaurants.

For the price it was a great place to stay for 1 week. The location is very convenient on 5th and Broadway. Our room was very large, with kitchenette, fridge and microwave as well as complimentary coffee and tea.
