The hotel is old and worn, but it's clean and in a great location, just a couple blocks from the train, the Embarcadero and Little Italy. It's on a tiny corner and the parking is tight, but the staff is friendly and helpful and I'd stay there again.

We have stayed here in the past and you can't beat the location, so close to Little Italy and the Marine Museum and airport. It is also very affordable for the area. Plus there is free parking! Do remember it is an older budget hotel so a lot of things may seem worn and there are no frills. We are... More

The motel was very clean. It was also in the center of everything. Very easy access to MCRD. The manager was awesome!!! He let me do a late check-out for no charge as my son was graduating Marine Corps boot camp. I would definitely stay at this motel again.

As soon as we walked into the room it smelt like smoke although our room was meant to be non smoking. The bathroom had an even worse smell and was quite old. The place is noisy and we stayed down the end where it sounded like a wind tunnel. The only good thing about this place is it is close... More

The room had exatly what needed. The beds are comfortable and the the entire room, including the bathroom, was clean and cosy. The area, just by little italy is very great and you can reach everything either by 5-10 minute walks or by the Green Line tram.

The good things are the location and the location. You can walk pretty much anywhere. There are no outlets to plug anything in, it looks like the fire marshal deemed they had to have a separate circuit for the heater/ac so they took one whole side of the wall. There were lamps on the wall at the bedside but nowhere... More

The room we were assigned was dirty. Mold in the shower, stains on the drapes and bed skirts. It was advertised to have a mini fridge, microwave. It had neither. It didn't have a hairdryer, iron or board. It had a very musty odor. We were then shown another room which was a bit better however it had a leak... More

I knew going in that we were renting a budget hotel bc San Diego downtown hotels are just expensive, no way around it. 1) Location: awesome, right by Little Italy & easy to get everywhere; right across from the water & Waterfront Park 2) Rooms: gross carpet, minimally stocked, but otherwise clean & comfortable. Our 1st room had no microwave... More
