This place was cheap for a reason. All the other hotels around this area charge 3-4 times as much a night for a room. It's a communal bathroom set up, but they are stalls and not like a mass open area like dorm rooms so you do get your privacy. You just have to walk a little bit from your room for it. This place could use some upkeep though. The carpet was stained and the paint could use touch up. If they fixed that up, I think people wouldn't give it such bad reviews. Surprisingly, the bed wasn't too bad either. I slept alright on it. The location was great. It was only a half mile to the main Gaslamp area, but be warned that parking in this area sucks. Half the street spots are no parking from 3-6am for street sweeping.
