I have stayed at this hotel more than forty times. The staff is friendly and efficient. The facilities are excellent and the food is very good. It is small to medium size and has the feel of a quality European small hotel. I highly recommend it.

I had a really nice stay here. The room was nice, the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was great. The only thing I didn't like was that I paid extra for a room with a balcony only to find that it opened to a view of another building's roof and nothing else. But that's a simple fix. Great... More

The Moment I walked through the doors I was warmly welcomed by Mr. Doug Ficke, he was extraordinary and went out of his way to make my stay extraordinary! I will definitely be sending family and friends and will be returning when I am in San Diego.

We booked this hotel very last minute (week of), and were pleasantly surprised with our experience. I enjoyed the decor and atmosphere of the Garden Inn. The rooms are much closer together than a typical hotel, so noise does travel through the walls. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, making the check-in and out process very smooth and easy.... More

My wife and I had a great time in San Diego and loved the room at this hotel. Everything was clean, the staff were very helpful, and pleasant. The room was large, roomy, and super clean. We didn't have the opportunity to try the restaurant or the bar, but it looked great. The internet access was slow but it was... More

My first experience with this hotel was checking in with Lindsay at the front desk. What a delight! Friendly, efficient and always called me by my name whenever I was in the lobby area for two days! Met and talked with Mike the General Manager with the same qualities. The restaurant food was excellent and service good. Room was clean... More

My wife and I have stayed at this property many times over the past 5 years and I once gave this hotel a stellar review. However I now feel the need to update that review to reflect new and disappointing information and I do hope that management reads this. Although it's still a nice place, and we would stay there...

My one night stay at this property was nothing but aces. As they say, it's the people that make the experience, and front desk agent Douglas was the keystone.

It was nice when checking in to be given information regarding local restaurants with directions. Staff was helpful and friendly. The room was small but very clean. The A/C was not noisy. The bed was extremely comfortable and was adjustable to suit the sleeper. For the first time in ages I found GOOD pillows on the bed. So many places... More
