“Clean But Lacking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2004

This is a very nice hotel, since it has been recently rennovated but there are some major complaints that cannot be ignored. The walls and floors are thin so be prepared to hear lots of doors slamming and pounding from up above. One thing that would help is if the doors had self closers on them so they wouldn't slam. My wife and I wake up 4 times a night because of this.

Positives: Friendly staff, clean rooms, breakfast included

Negatives: Noisy, thin walls, mediocore breakfast, shady neighborhood, $15 parking fee per day.(Hint. Refuse the parking pass and park for free on the street)

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and thought the hotel itself was an excellent value. The room was new and clean, and it had everything you could possibly need. (It was an efficiency/suite.) They also served a good (free) breakfast in the morning. No complaints about the hotel itself except that shower pressure could have been better. The one drawback is the location. Yes, it is walking distance to Gaslamp, but it is through a slummy neighborhood. The one time we walked it, we were approached by several beligerent homeless people. Then again, most of downtown SD is like that...

The Staybridge Riviera may be your POT 'O GOLD! Whether you're alone, with your family or one of a group, you will be delighted and satisfied with this property. I am the co-ordinator of tradeshows for my company, and since I traditionally stay in the convention city at least a week, I find I need the following factors as criteria: a pleasant, home-y room (like an efficiency apartment or suite) with enough space to spread out, a kitchenette, windows that open, a decent sized closet and a bathroom with plenty of counter top space, in the $130.00 range. After searching endlessly (read:anal) I stumbled upon the Staybridge, which exeeded my expectations. Although the pictures online show a nondescript exterior, I dug deeper and found out this is a hotel where the money has been spent where it counts: on the staff and the interior- in short; catering to us, the customer. The common areas are appointed with beautiful Art Deco detailing,(accessories hand-picked by Michael Shaff, the manager), the rooms beautifully decorated, the front end and back up staff friendly and very accommodating,and as far as the entire establishment, nothing unkempt ,unclean or shabby. After my visit, I called Michael the manager to compliment him on his wonderful employees,and to offer suggestions for minor additions pertaining to comforting additions in the rooms (from the female perspective), to which he was very receptive. Don't miss the lovely top floor outside deck where barbeques and appetizer receptions are held a few times a week (hosted bY Michael, I found out ). The reception staff I dealt with (Lori and Kara) were fantastic, the maintainance manager, Horatio was attentive to what I requested, and the cleaning staff was unfailingly freindly. This property has plans to expand it's facilities and room capacity, and your business this next year will no doubt help. Advice? unless you don't need to see the surrounding areas, request an outside room, on one of the 2 sides that either don't face the current parking lot or Mc Donalds. (which, suprisingly, pipes out classical music.) The surrounding area is undergoing updates, but as of March '04, this would be my recommendation. Staybidge was very convenient to the Gaslamp and downtown districts; in fact I even walked it, but cabs were only about $5.00 and the trolley was only 2 blocks away, was $3.00 roundtrip and simple to do. Please consider this wonderful hotel!!!
