Usually we stay at the RI Gaslamp. So I'm comparing apples and apples here. This RI is more like suburban ones we've stayed in. Very familiar down to the decor accents and appliances. Spotlessly clean. Typical RI breakfast, they also offer dinners Mondays thru Wednesdays, which we didn't try but it looked decent. Parking here is way cheap for the... More

I decided to stay here b/c I had an early flight. Their website looked nice but it had tired rooms. One thing that bothered me the most was that my room was on the outside and there was very strong strobe light shining thru my window. It was very very bright. Whenever, I opened my eye, I felt like I... More

This was a surprise. Two blocks from the convention center in San Diego-so very convenient for meetings there. The room was one large studio apartment. Nice dingin and kitchen area, comfortable sofa with an odd view of the TV, but really great view of the TV from the bed. Large queen size bed, Bathroom also nice. Visually pleasing and convenient...

We chose to stay here to be within walking distance of the bay/water. We visited Little Italy for dinner a few times where there are a hundred restaurants to choose from, walked down to the water, to Anthony's Fish Grotto, to the USS Midway, Fish Market, etc. The hotel has parking for $14/night, and they have a complimentary shuttle to...
