My wife and I just returned from a 5 day stay here. What a great location! Walking distance to everything worth wild downtown and a 15 minuted drive to most everything else (Sea World, SD Zoo and Balboa Park). Linda and Mike make you feel right at home. The berds are super confortable and the shower is definitely not flow restrictive. It rocked.
We would defintely stay here againt when visititng San Diego.
Almost forgot, free underground parking ($25-$45 per day at any chain hotel)
