It was a nice hotel and the staff was very nice. I had one incident and the staff took care of it. Great location, close to airport, ports, ships, and Old Town. I would stay here again if I am ever in the area.

Typically we travel throughout the country for 3-4months and stay at H.I. hotels across the U.S. from the west coast to the east coast. We were truely impressed, on a daily basis, at the excellent customer service both Elia and Jose gave to people both on the phone and in person. Great front desk help!

What struck me most about this place was how every staff member was very nice and responsive. It makes this property special. Everything in this hotel is fine, and considering that this is in the down town San Diego this place is good value for money.
