This hotel was a good fit for a business traveler that needs a place to stay close to the city and airport. The hotel is a little outdated, but not too bad. The downstairs was being renovated, so the breakfast was on the top floor (a little cramped). But it seemed like they were finishing up downstairs so I would... More

The good: Great location: easy to jump on the highway to drive anywhere, and great food and bar options in walkable disatance. Good views if you get a city view room. Employees are warm and welcoming, even when they're telling you they can't give you the king bed you booked. The bad: Old & dated appearance. Check out the carpets!... More

I was in San Diego for one night ahead of a business meeting the next morning. The hotel was just a couple of blocks from the meeting location. To be fair the hotel is not want I would consider downtown, however the location does work well for visiting the city. It was two short blocks to Little Italy and surprisingly... More

I'll preface this review by saying that I was a group coordinator travelling to San Diego - we booked ~ 14 rooms at this hotel. Check-in: Our group arrived at the hotel around 10:30 p.m. on a Friday evening (arriving directly from the airport after a long day of travelling). We had pre-arranged for all of our keys to be...

The hotel's unique shape caught me eye years ago, and it was a treat to stay here. Every member of the staff was impressive in their friendliness and eagerness to help me have the best stay possible. The breakfast wasn't amazing, but the view from the top floor while eating it was fantastic! The renovations still aren't finished. It didn't... More

This hotel is right by the freeway and not strictly in Downtown. The refurbishment was supposed to be finished by June but was still going on in July - there was no restaurant or bar just a horrible free breakfast. We had asked for a quiet room and instead were given one on 2nd floor beside freeway ramp and also... More

The room was bit tight as our little family of four shared a two bed room, but it was well appointed and complimentary continental breakfast helped. The location was absolutely terrific and we had a wonderful time in Little Italy.

I really don't want to moan too much so will kick off with the best points. Receptionists are really friendly. Rooms are clean and comfortable and a decent size, free WI-FI a bonus. Good position to get on the freeway to go visit local attractions. Parking was extortionate - $26 a day and it had to be a valet parking... More

Definitely not the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in, and a little disappointed relative to other Four Points properties. It's convenient if you're planning to walk around downtown - my son and I took the Amtrak down from LA. It was about a 10-12 minute walk from Sante Fe Depot to the hotel, so both the Amtrak and the "trolley"... More

I must apologize to the other San Diego Four Points, as my review of the Downtown facility ended up going to them. Thanks, TripAdvisor for catching it and correcting it... Stayed 2 nights at this facility in April for a major conference. Was booked there by SD CVB Housing as an "overflow" facility. Never again! This place has been around... More
