We rate this a five because of location, price and accommodations. We too were a little weary staying here after reading the reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed Nov. 7 - Nov. 10 and got the best price from BOOKIT.com. Stayed in the "deluxe king with balcony" room #501. Room was clean and roomy for the two of us. The hotel is located in "Little Italy" near great restaurants and bars. From the other reviews we found a great bar a short walk away, the Waterfront Tavern. Good food, cold beer and a great weekend brunch. We used the valet parking during our stay and found them to be excellent. The staff at the hotel was very pleasant and accommodating. The hotel's restaurant "The Glass Door" is located on the 4th floor. We found the food reasonably priced and delicious. The restaurant had a great view of the waterfront from it's deck. It was a nice place to have your morning coffee!
All in all our stay was great and we can't wait to return to the Porto Vista. Next time to San Diego we will definitely stay here.
