We choose this hotel because of its reasonable prices considering the proximity to downtown and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is well within walking distance from downtown and Little Italy with a lot of restaurants is even closer. We had asked for a room with a nice view and got that, we could see more or less all of down... More

This hotel is very clean and in perfect location. Walking distance to Little Italy, the Catholic Cathedral and easy location to get gas and to catch the freeway. Good view from our room. Free WiFi. Breakfast is available early which we needed. Front desk people are very helpful and knows the area very well in giving directions.

If you are looking for something different on your next trip to San Diego, this is the place. First, it's round, and that's cool. Gives it a retro vibe and makes for rooms that have 6 corners! Top that! We also loved the location, and loved being able to walk to the Farmers Market at Little Italy. The room was... More

I stayed here during Comic Con and I must say for the amount of craziness going on during that time this hotel was on top of it. The staff were courteous and very friendly. The people handling the cars were great. I had a room which didn't have a fridge so when I asked them about it. They said they... More

My company regularly uses this hotel for stays. The last several times I have stayed here there have been issues with the front desk. The last time is as simple as a key issue. Knowing we stay here past the check out time it's normal for a hotel to key the room for a late check out. Nothing is worse... More

This hotel does not look like the pictures. Our room was small and smelled moldy and like smoke. When we books this it said it came with a continental breakfast. Upon arrival we found that they were opening a restaurant and the continental breakfast was good one day and then it was $14.95 per person for the breakfast buffet. The... More

If it was not for a trip voucher I received, I would have never booked this for my 5 year old daughter and I. I think this is perfect for the business traveler, but not for a person traveling with a family with children. The hotel is in a centralized location and all of the places we visited were within...

We were in SD just before the madness of Comic-con started, so we were able to get a somewhat decent rate. Every hotel doubled their prices for Comic-con, so we actually had to change our schedule a bit to leave town right before the prices went up. The location of the hotel is great. Real convenient access to the highway.... More

knowing San Diego would be busy during the summer months, I decided to use Priceline.com to find the best deal i could for a price. A word of advice. don't use priceline if you are going to San Diego because you will always fall into the trap of this hotel. It was horrendous. First we discover that it is valet... More
