Comfortable hotel with very friendly staff, good sized rooms with separate living area. Good breakfast choices. Swimming pool well maintained. Great location, close enough to the airport 5 minute walk to little Italy. 30 minute walk to the gas lamp area. Lots of good bars in the area also, waterfront, craft and commerce, ballast point brewery to name a few.

The location is perfect - steps to the harbor and 5 minute walk to Little Italy. The complimentary breakfast is better than most. The staff are extremely friendly. The manager's receptions are light suppers with beer and wine. They even give you a fresh baked cookie in the afternoons. Shuttle to local attractions saves a lot of $$

I stayed at Residence Inn San Diego Downtown on my third trip to San Diego. The hotel offers a free shuttle for airport runs and to the major sites. All the staff we encountered were super friendly. The hotel is a block off from the harbor and just 10 minutes to the airport. The interior is not the newest but... More

Our 2 bedroom suite was a bit cramped (it was hard to get between the bed and the door when it was open and my husband I were both in the room), and the location was noisy especially in the mornings from road traffic and trains. However, we had a great stay and thought the hotel staff were absolutely top... More

One night stayed at this convenient hotel to Little Italy and the airport. The hotel is about 1/2 - 1 mile from the center of San Diego. Its beginning to age a bit but is still comfortable and was clean. Downside was the closeness to the train tracks and airport (noise). I had a room facing the pool and the... More
