“Slice of peace in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I was attending a sales meeting at Petco Park and needed a hotel near by on short notice. The name of this hotel attracted me and it did not disappoint. It was quaint and charming and I wanted to stay longer!

This was a nice little place to stay right downtown. Affordable, and the breakfast was better than what we expected. Beds were a bit too firm for us, but the location was great, staff was friendly and helpful, and parking was cheaper than most other hotels. We would stay here again.

The picture is very misleading, the big building in the back was a different hotel. We thought because it was a BW that it would be a hotel not a motel. Room was to small and the bathroom, the door barely cleared the toilet. There is not much walking space. The only good thing was the free hot breakfast, which is a brunch style setting. The staff was friendly and helpful. But we will not be staying there again.

Dear Carrie,
Thank you for your comments of the recent stay at our property. In regards to the hotel photos, we currently have on Bestwestern website four exterior photos of the hotel from different angles and three room photos to give a better picture of the hotel. We do apologize if you feel the photos were misleading. We are glad that you enjoyed the complimentary breakfast as well as the friendly and helpful staff.
Thank you.

this hotel is a great value, and is a great choice if you like a unique vacation spot and a more personal feel as opposed to a huge hotel chain with thousands of rooms. staff remembers who you are and where your room is, and was willing to help with anything you might need during your stay. I would highly recommend to anyone staying in San Diego

We love this hotel and it's location. Walking distance to a lot of places. Coffee is good and nice selection of breakfast items. It has clean, bright rooms and friendly, helpful service. Very happy to stay here and would again.

This hotel is a few blocks from the Gaslamp District, the Zoo, and I-5. Rooms are small but very nice. We had three people and two surf boards and could have used a wee bit more space. Very clean. Breakfast is great. Staff is very helpful and friendly. This is a no smoking hotel which in CA means no marijuana.

Room Tip: I would suggest the second floor.

I was very impressed with this hotel. The hotel staff were very friendly, and the rooms were clean, bright, comfortable and actually charming (different déor than other BW). Huge flat screen TV, and we could see Petco Park from the window! FYI, the floors were squeaky so get a room on the top floor. They have continental breakfast available in the a.m. and a small parking lot. Parking is $10/night, but this is cheaper than other downtown hotels I've stayed at. We came back one evening and there were 3 spaces left. Two had cones reserving the space and the last available one was really tight because the other guests didn't know how to park! The front desk employee saw us sitting there and came right out and said he'd move a cone for us.
Great location in downtown, you could walk or cheap taxi to anywhere. I will stay here again & recommend it to my friends.

Room Tip: Floors squeak, so ask for top floor.
