Each of the four rooms in this small hotel is a fully functioning apartment. The apartments are nicely restored, not modern, but comfortable and quiet. Reliable internet and coffee in the room. There's no maid or room service but having a kitchen and nearby shops more than makes up for it.
There is a pretty patio and bikes to borrow.
The hotel is located a mile from the waterfront hotels and convention center but an easy walk, particularly given San Diego's perfect weather.
The owners live in the building and are welcoming and helpful but not intrusive. Linda gave me a ride to the airport - what could be nicer.
The only downside for some would be that it lacks the amazing water views that the big hotels have.
Other than that - perfection. A nice break from sterile hotels.
