We stayed here on 9/5/13. The outside of the hotel looks nice but once you go inside, brave yourself... it looks like you're in the projects!
This looks more like an old motel (very old). They advertised "free parking" but the only free parking you'll find is on the street and depends on the times. Otherwise you have to pay $20 for valet parking.
The rooms are extremely small. The prison is only a few blocks down. I did not feel comfortable walking around the area at night.
Check-out time is at 11:00am but housekeeping was knocking on our door at 9:00am.

- Enjoy an urban hotel experience in Little Italy with newly remodeled minimalistic Queen and Double Queen rooms.

The local-favorite GlassDoor restaurant features amazing views of Downtown and San Diego Bay. A great location, convenient amenities and shuttle service to San Diego International Airport, Cruise Ship Terminal, Convention Center, and MCRD make this a popular getaway for couples, business travelers, convention attendees, and families! Our European theme will be just what you need to get you out of the normal hotel experience, and our prices for a San Diego Downtown hotel are hard to beat. ... more less
