My wife and I spent a week at Mudville Flats just recently. This place is great! Mike and Linda made us feel right at home. Great location in central San Diego downtown and free parking for your car.
This is very much the city, with Mudville a comfortable oasis. We had a roomy apartment, with a deck over the backyard where we ate our meals when we dined in. It was also nice for just relaxing out there.
But we did not dine in all that often. There are so many good restaurants within a few blocks, as well as two grocery stores very close. The hotel is surrounded by old restored San Diego landmarks, some very beautiful old buildings, as well as modern, pricey apartment buildings and townhomes. So the neighborhood, like so many in a city, is very eclectic.
The climate in San Diego, of course, is fabulous. Just made for being outside. We decided to do without a car, but the Enterprise rental office is about 2 blocks away, so we could have rented a car if we had wanted to.
A word about our hosts. Linda and Mike were almost literally on call 24 hrs a day. Any time we called with questions, she was always happy to answer them and offer her or MIke's help in getting things done. Furthermore, one day we were running a bit late, and Linda simply offered to drive us to our destination, which she did.
The hotel itself is very comfortable. Excellent beds and the linens are luxurious. Wonderful wood floors with nice carpets. The kitchen was spotless, and everything was full size. There was even filtered water available, and the basics for fixing meals, if we chose. Wifi was excellent, air conditioning and heating both available, but never really needed.
Yes, we would stay here again, with pleasure!
