A cylindrical hotel in a lovely downtown area near the most beautiful bay..... So how could it go wrong? The hotel is situated right next to a major highway/motorway and one of the off ramps wraps around the building. It's very hard to drive into and almost impossible to drive out without being forced down the highway/motorway on ramp. The... More

Stayed at this hotel for the 2nd consecutive year prior to/at the beginning of Comic Con. The 2013 visit was for the Wednesday 7/17. My CC plans changed and I needed one additional night so this hotel fit the bill. What i really appreciated is, having arrived very early (930 or so), being accommodated to a room as I totally...

I recently traveled to San Diego for the weekend. It was my first trip to the city. I enjoyed my stay at Four Points. I loved that the hotel provided a free shuttle to and from the airport. Check-in was a bit on the slow side when we arrived, but Jennifer, our check-in rep was very attentive and helpful. It... More

The hotel was nice. It was a little confusing when registering. There were mostly handicap parking outfront. The registration area is small. The room was fine. The bed was comfortable. We really enjoyed the Bay View as you can see the bay and also see the airport. We also left Sea World early because we were able to see there... More

I booked a six night stay with my family through Hotwire on an unseen deal for a low price.( not worth it ) For starters the hotel is surrounded by homeless camps and pan handlers, if you take a 15 minute walk to Gas lamp that's what you will see! The hotel lobby is very small and uninviting. The hotel... More

We stayed for 4 nights. Hotel was centrally located to the zoo and Seaworld. The first night we easily walked to Little Italy and then down to the waterfront.

Having been to San Diego multiple times, I prefer to stay at the North end of town, near Little Italy. This hotel was in a bit of a weird location, near the highway entrance, but walking just a couple of blocks puts you right in the middle of Little Italy. The hotel building is older but it's been recently remodeled.... More
