Even though we usually stay with family and friends while visiting San Diego, my husband surprised me with a two-night stay at the Mudville Flats. He wanted to do something special for me during this particular trip because we're expecting our first baby. It was an awesome surprise! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Linda welcomed us with lots of warmth and a down-to-earth attitude. What was super sweet was that she got us a newborn San Diego Padres onesie as a keepsake of our stay at the baseball-themed hotel. My husband and I were thoroughly impressed by the hotel accommodations as well as our interactions with Linda. She was extremely organized with the check-in process and the room was wonderfully decorated. The room was also very clean. Some might be worried by the location of the hotel in downtown San Diego, but both my husband and I felt safe even when we got back super late. The fact that there was a hostel right next to us with lots of travelers hanging out made us feel safe. We have no complaints at all; only compliments!
