A place to sleep not much more. High price low value accommodations. Near Little Italy, if that means anything. No refrigerator in the rooms and the internet is a bit slow. A lot of freeway noise. The best thing I can say about it is on Saturdays there is a Farmers Market nearby.

I stayed here one night for a wedding that was going to be in Balboa Park. It was a convenient location to the downtown area. I was there on a Saturday, and there was a great farmer's market. The location is walkable to Little Italy area and there are good restaurants around. The check-in was a breeze. I got there... More

When you check in don't go to Roy. He does not look at you when he talks and he has a really bad attitude. Being that Front Desk agents are the first people you come in to contact with they should be friendlier. He didn't even point us in the direction of the elevators (which I know they are trained...

I spent two nights here and the staff was great. My room was clean and very comfortable. You can walk to restaurants. The hotel has a nice lounge and a small store to purchase any incidentals you may have left behind. The hotel offers an airport shuttle that runs every twenty minutes.

The location next to Little Italy was great for our needs. There are many new restaurants and nightlife. The Saturday Farmers Market is terrific and it's just outside the Hotel. While the architecture and design may be uninspiring, the staff was very friendly and the room was spacious and clean. We requested an upper floor & it was not ready... More

We used this hotel for an over night flight connection. Was very convenient to the airport, being just minutes away by shuttle/taxi. So I am basing the review and experience on a very short stay The rooms were clean, the bed super comfortable, which was much needed after a late and long flight and needed a good rest. Otherwise was... More

There was a false fire alarm which was not a big deal. The problem is how they handled it. Me and 15-20 other people stood outside an entrance for almost 45 minutes while no one told us anything. We finnaly saw someone walk inside and went to see where they went. We then saw everyone else in eating breakfast. I... More

Love this hotel, the location is perfect. Walking distance to downtown, the beach and Gaslamp. A couple of blocks from Little Italy. I've stayed at hotels on the beach in Pt. Loma and Harbor Island but the location of this hotel allowed me to park my car and not have to drive when I wanted to go out. The hotel... More

The hotel was clean, the room comfortable, the gym was clean with newer equipment, overall – a great experience. My only critic would be parking, $25 to park in the hotel. But across the street there is a public lot and you can park for $15 all day

Stayed here for one night during a Californian road trip with the family. While the service was as expected and the room was ok-ish, it was a bit tired and in need of decorating. It was clean and comfortable enough. Warm cookies for the kids was a nice choice but I would have preferred the hotel to concentrate on renovating... More
