Got out and planned a trip with the guys to head to a sporting event at Qualcomm Stadium and enjoy the night life down at the Gaslamp District. I found the motel by a coworker who came down to SD for vacation and said the place was close to all the places I wanted to go. I booked a room... More

It was my birthday, so my wife and i decided to stay in San Diego. The closest hotel to the Harbor was this location so we booked for a couple of days. The ad said the rooms were remodeled, so it was a good thing. Upon arrival, i met the desk attendant who was talking to one of her coworkers,... More

Wouldn't let us extend our stay. Its quite a walk to get food or good coffee. Snack machine always out of order. Friendly Staff. We noticed a Homeless guy sleeping undisturbed on the patio above the pool one day but He was polite and didn't bother anyone. Close to the Bay Attractions and worth the price considering you can count... More

Although the motel was very close to the airport, the noise could not be heard when the door was closed, and the flights weren't as often during the late night hours.. The motel is very convenient to get to all the tourist areas in San Diego. No charge for parking and having a refrigerator in the room was an added... More

I got stranded at the airport and stayed here one night. It was right choice. Very close to the airport and they had shuttle for a very reasonable price. The airport is next door so planes flight right above it. Can be noisy but in the room with ac on , can't hear much. Also not much of dining places... More

The staff was friendly....The room on the other had was not as clean as i expected,and had a extremely chemical smell.There are no amenities,and no blow dryer.We only had to spend one nite.However we did need to be at the airport at 5 am and the shuttle was 5 bucks each and on time.That was well worth it.

My first trip to San Diego and was so please about the location of most attractions where this hotel is at. I enjoy the free WiFi as a extra bonus and with a family that needed a place to be close to downtown and beaches I was glad that I chose this spot. I do admit that there are planes... More

You can hear so bad the planes landind or taking off. The employees are just so cold and you feel that it annoys them if you need some informations and ask questions. Even to find the laundry area. It is not located in a beautiful area. Try something else if you can.
