Lovely hotel just walking distance from the Gas lamp district. Nice room and very helpful staff. Had a great time and would recommend it. No frills but good functional room. A good bargain any day. Will definitely go back

We stayed three nights. Great location. The staff was very pleasant. The gentleman who worked the desk in the evenings was very helpful. Would have been nice to know ahead of time about the price for parking, but he gave us a discount which was very much appreciated. Didn't take long to figure out that free parking anywhere in San...

Location: Gas lamp district, right off the 163 freeway. Probably the only saving grace of this motel. Motel: Outdated and dirty, needs a paint job. Rooms need an upgrade, big time. Parking: $15/day in a private lot. Services: Internet was spotty at times, not a clear connection. Breakfast: Few bagels and cereals. Coffee was terrible, the bagels were from Costco... More

You need to post the price for parking in your hotel, not even covered parking. Your cable service is terrible, not many channels and half with poor reception. I was told you upgraded me to a balcony and you gave me a view of a roof and nothing but noisy buildings. Your location is not bad but very loud!

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Our parking fee is listed on every website, but realize that we have no control over a 3rd party website as to where they choose to list the information. Moreover, you should be aware that virtually every downtown San Diego property charges for parking, and our daily fee is the lowest in the area.... More

Very comfortable room. Staff was real attentive when I had questions. Stayed 4 days 3 nights. Wanted to be near the Gaslamp area. Uber was 7 dollars to get to Little Italy. If you like Italian I would recommend Mimmo"s . The Chicken Marsales was great. Walked home. Everything is close by which is why I chose this location. I... More

Basic room,could use some updates in decor. Front desk man is a tab bit rude. Over all though,the room served it's purpose. I also like the location,it's more on the outskirts of downtown.
