If price is your priority, C.I.G. is acceptable for solo business trips to San Diego Convention Center events or similar at a nearby hotel. But otherwise, I would avoid this property. I stayed here to avoid the higher prices of the larger hotels (even with negotiated event rate), as well as spending that savings on daily can rides.
The rooms are very small, with very little space on either side of the small bed. The bathroom is just a tub and a toilet behind a sliding door with peeling paint. There is only an A/C box hanging in the window, which the staff turn off for you each day. Through the open window, you can hear plenty of what's going on in the Gaslamp neighborhood.
The 'free' airport shuttle is frugal, but if I had to do it over again I would just grab a cab for a more direct (short) ride. There is no return trip to the airport included. The TV menu didn't work (only channel up/down), the volume jumped from barely audible for one channel to painfully loud on another, the picture didn't fit the screen, and there we're several white snow only channels.
Yes the free breakfast is also a nice touch, and better than average, but my corporate convention also provided free breakfast.
