My partner and I stayed 2 nights at this Days Inn. The hotel itself is a bit shabby from the outside and inside. Mainly as it is quite dated. We were told we were given an "upgraded and renovated" which we definitely did not get unless they meant the bar fridge was new. The sheets on the bed were an... More

Although Days Inn San Diego Downtown/Convention Center had somewhat mixed reviews I am glad I booked it. Clean, cute, in a central and convenient location AND inexpensive (I got a great deal at 50% off and for what we paid it was adequate for a stopover during our road trip!). As an experienced traveler and especially during this particular 15-days... More

I expected more for this property. Looks way run down and was disappointed. I did not feel secure/safe when we pull to the entrance of the place.

Thank you very much for staying with us. Although your review is rather short on details, we do apologize if the property's outward appearance failed to meet your expectations. As a more "seasoned" property, we are in a constant state of renewal. To this point, we have been focusing our attention on the rooms themselves, where we have recently replaced... More

Booked this motel blindly through a web site's hot deals section and didn't quite get what we were expecting as it was listed in the Gas Lamp section of town. In reality, the Gas Lamp area is several blocks away--about a 10-minute walk--and there's not a whole lot in the immediate vicinity that you'd be impressed with. Also disappointed with... More

While we thank you for staying with us, some aspects of your review leave us a little bit puzzled. First of all, we have no rooms on the first floor, so that is a little confusing to us. In addition, like all downtown San Diego properties, we do have a daily parking fee which incidentally is the lowest in all... More

I'm not too very happy with a few things. But most importantly I was told by an employee that there was a laundry facility in this hotel (traveling on a 2 week road trip I definitely need it). Just now I go to exchange quarters, ($5 worth!) to use the machines and the man at the front desk let me.... More

I liked that the room is large and the beds were comfortable and we got a GREAT deal by reserving early online (more than half off!). The breakfast included many prepackaged items and fresh fruit so if you wanted to sleep a little later the next day you could bring them back to your room for the next day. The... More

Thank you very much for staying with us. We regret that your stay was anything short of exemplary. As you noticed, our property is split between the basic room and our enhanced Business Place rooms. In addition to having a balcony, the Business Place rooms offer an enhanced workspace, in-room snacks/water, etc. Otherwise, we are glad that you found the... More

Very friendly, helpful staff. The rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable, the water was hot. I would say the only draw back is the ever growing number of homeless people hanging out in the area. I wasn't comfortable walking around at night. To fix that we ordered delivery and avoided being outside.
