We stayed here for Xmas and had a great time. The rooms are really nice, beds are super comfortable and the breakfast is fairly substantial. Hot tub with vending machine for beers was a fantastic way to wind down after walking around San Diego all day. Have to admit the staff were a little unfriendly and the women on the... More

We spent 3 nites here prior to taking our cruise to Hawaii. Great location for us. Hotel staff was friendly. Breakfast was included in room price. Restaurant open for breakfast and dinner only. Airport pick up and drop off at cruise ship dock.

We were pleased by the staff, cleaness, the room was quiet and enough room. Breakfast was OK but enough. Close to little Italy and the Bay. We had 3 rooms and all next to each other and this was a plus. All together we would like to come back. Thank you for everything.

I chose this hotel for its free shuttle to airport, free internet, free breakfast, and convenient location to see attractions of San Diego downtown. I was satisfied with my choice. The room is spacious, clean, quiet, and comfortable, with a fridge and a microwave, which is a plus. The hotel honored my request to have a bay-view room on the... More

The hotel was fine but I didn't enjoy my stay. I was there for 3 nights. The staff were not helpful and my room had a funny smell when I arrived. Breakfast is included and it was fine. The hotel is located in Little Italy and within a 5-10 minute walking distance to the Harbour. I was on the top... More

Very nice 5 day stay in December 2012. Room on 11th floor with terrific Bayview. The trains still run but they made a barrier on the crossing (don't know how to better describe in English) So the trains don't honk anymore, what seemed to be the biggest worries in previous reviews. We didn't hear the trains. Our room was 1101... More

We stayed at this Hotel 2 nights before we went onto a cruise out of San Diego. The Hotel was mainly chosen due to its proximity to the cruise harbour, value for money and I have to say we were not disappointed. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the rooms large and very clean with fresh smelling bed linen.... More
