When we arrived at this hotel and went to check in we knew this was going to be a great place. It was about 10:00am, a holiday weekend and our room was ready! What more can you ask for? Although the hotel is in a very old building the modern decor makes it very comfortable. The location makes it perfect... More

We had no real complaints with this hotel. Room was comfortable, although AC was a bit noisy. Nice big towels. Staff pleasant, breakfast good at a reasonable price. Location was excellent, walking distance to all we wanted to do, with bus stop nearby for Bilbao Park. For shoppers a shopping mall was 2 minutes walk.

Our room was small, the walls were super thin, the sink is the first thing you see when you walk in. The shower was small andwater splashed everywhere because it was a half glass wall. The location was good, in downtown, walking distance from restaurants, bars/clubs. They have happy hour at the restaurant downstairs which was a plus.

This is a great little historic hotel in downtown San Diego, within walking distance to the Gaslamp district, and the Convention Center. (The latter if you wear comfortable shoes!) I got a great rate, so I felt like it was a good value. I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. The restaurant in the hotel, Currant American... More

This was our second time staying at this historical hotel and it is located is the best in area around. With the Gaslamp District so close we were able to visit great restaurants and shops in walking distance. We even walked to Seaport Village. With transportation all around you, you really don't need a car. Even though we had one,... More

This is a historic hotel with alot of character so if you are expecting ultra modern and huge rooms then look elsewhere. Staff was very courteous and nice and the hotel was immaculate. Rooms are small but ok for a couple. The decor was nice and the bed was very comfortable. Easy walking distance to the Gaslamp District and Karl... More

I stayed here for 3 nights last week and I really enjoyed it. The room was small but cozy. There was free wifi and bottles of water. Great location on West Broadway - close to public transit, buses and trolleys, the Transit Store was a block away to get a Compass card, Horton Plaza as well nearby and short walk... More
