“Excellent value, friendly staff, good location and super comfy bed!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for three nights in August and found it to be a nice little retreat right in the heart of town. The bed and linen were so comfy it was a struggle getting up in the morning!

The trendy gas lamp district is right on your doorstep so we were able to find nice little eateries and bars just from ambling around.

The guy who checked us in, Carlos was his name I believe, was incredibly friendly and helpful. When we told him our travel plans (to drive along the coast to San Francisco) he produced a map of California and of LA and San Fran and told us all about his favourite spots along the way. He couldn't have been nicer or more helpful and gave us some great tips!

Great little hotel and excellent value for what you get! Definitely recommend.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This place so cute... Although the pictures shown make it look larger, it is tucked inside may larger buildings. If it was not for the tender loving care given by its owners it would not stand out. The rooms are smaller, but comfortable and very clean. If you are looking or a view from your room, this would not be your place, however they have a roof top area that has a great sitting area to settle down after a long day. You can even see the ball park from this roof top! If you are staying here, you must wear your walking shoes. You can get to the gaslight district, but it is a walk. If you are going to the convention area it can also be done in a walk, but it will take you about 15 - 20 minutes. The restaurants are not close, however, across the street is a deli/liquor store to grab a quick sandwich or a bottle of wine. The have a very nice breakfast. Overall this is a nice place with character.

Room Tip: Great Local low key business place, not good for the social aspect of business.

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.

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.

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
