“Great room, location, and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We stayed for four nights in a one bedroom suite on the third floor. Very roomy and well equipped. The location of the hotel is great for accessing almost anywhere in San Diego with and within minutes of the wonderful Balboa Park. Restaurants abound within walking distance in the neighborhood Big plus is that it is not in the "tourist" district. Staff was exceptional in helpfulness and courtesy. Highly recommend this gem.

Room Tip: Best rooms are in the rear away from Washington Street.

It was a very nice room, we got the executive suite. Perfect for our family event. We were preparing for a baby shower and there was plenty of space in the kitchen to store goodies for the next day. Would stay here again

Plenty of room in room 113. It was a 1 bedroom suite, our 2 adults and 3 children group could spread out and relax. Plenty of hot water. Large fold out bed in the living room. Plenty of soft pillows and blankets for all. Clean dishes and cookware in the kitchen. Need to bring your own dish soap though. Fresh cookies at check in. Only complaint was that the heater did not work very well. It heated up the room eventually though. Would stay here again.

My wife and I have stayed several periods for a couple of days during January and February 2013. We did select this hotel for the comfortable and spacy rooms, a good breakfast and all of it for a good price.
We did find the location of this hotel excellent in the middle of the great Hillcrest neighbourhood while having access to public transport making all of San Diego highlights accessible.
The rooms were comfortable and always clean and tidy.
Staff was very friendly and helped us out when my wife hurt her knee.
Only remark to give is the noise of neighbours we suffered a few times.

Great location. Close to the zoo and in fun Hillcrest neighborhood. We were suprised at all the ambulances day and night with hospital behind the hotel. Pleasant staff. The breakfast was okay but staff setting up breakfast were great.

We liked this place very much -- the room was comfortable both in terms of the beds, and it terms of being dark at night, and light during the day. It also had windows that opened, and they didn't use products with intrusive smells. The kitchenette was equipped with dishes, pots and pans. They have a hotel-type breakfast with the waffle machine. There is a computer in the lobby and free wifi. The location is terrific, right in the middle of Hillcrest which is full of restaurants, cafes, and clubs. The pool is ok for splashing with small chlidren, but not deep enough for adult exercise.

Room Tip: Rooms are variable in size; corner rooms are bigger.
