This was the 2nd time visiting San Diego and the 2nd time staying at this hotel. It is so reasonably priced! It's on the edge of Old Town and isn't much to see from the street, but the rooms are nicely appointed and clean. They also have a wonderful breakfast including waffles, eggs, stone cut oatmeal, pastries, fruit, cereal, etc.... More

You can tell the owners really care about the hotel. The rooms are clean and nice. The only thing that I didn't like was the area it was in...Just a little scary compared to Utah...haha. We had planned on staying 3 night but only stayed one because I was so scared. But the manager was really nice and let us... More

We finally found this gem at the end of our week long stay. If only we'd found it sooner! Clean, comfortable rooms with a friendly and helpful staff (housekeeping and grounds crew very nice). I am unable to climb a lot of stairs and I was in the room in 3 small steps! Compared to most hotels in the hills... More

Place looks a bit sketchy. Looks more like a motel. Is it? I dunno. However, the king bed was really nice. The rooms were ok, pretty spacious. Complimentary continental breakfast STAY AWAY. Skip it. Front desk really nice. I'll stay somewhere else next time.

I am a local and had my close friends stay here. I was impressed with how friendly the staff were on the phone and in person. They went above and beyond to make my friends feel welcome. I think this is one of the best values in San Diego. I would recommend this property to anyone.

We stayed here for my mother's birthday, a two night girls getaway, and it was lovely. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, the grounds had beautiful plants everywhere, the continental breakfast was what you'd expect it to be, the coffee was decent.

Stayed In December right after Christmas for the Holiday Bowl at Qualcomm Stadium. There were pros and cons associated with this room. Overall Review: There are two sections of this hotel. A more modern 80's/90's section and the older 1930's/40's motor lodge section. The more modern section is located directly in front of the main check in area and is... More

This hotel is an oasis in an industrial area, but it is incredibly conveniently located. We were right off both I-5 and I-8, a 10 minute drive from Mission Beach, Balboa Park, the airport, the harbor (USS Midway, etc.), and a 5 minute walk from Old Town. The room had everything we needed, including frig and microwave. The staff was... More
