Great location in the middle of San Diego conveniently sited next to the Gas Lamp quarter. Short distance from the world famous San Diego Zoo which you can either drive to or catch the Number 7 bus, at a stop approximately one block away. I believe it costs a total of 4.50 dollars for travel to and return from the zoo. You can obtain a day pass to travel anywhere within the San Diego limits for 7 dollars, not bad. It is also worth visiting the Midway Carrier museum which is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel.
The air conditioning good do with an overhaul as it sounds like a jet engine when it is running, however it is essential as the widows are all sealed.
The only downside is the 34 dollars per day parking fee, which came as a nasty surprise, however parking in the middle of cities in California is expensive.
I would return to this hotel.
