this place is across the street from old town San Diego. A market is walking distance. Also it's a nice little walk to old town or a one minute drive. We arrived there late one night and there was only one room left. The staff was the nicest I've even met. They gave us a great discount on the room and let us park in restricted area because it was by our room. They went way out of their way to make us feel welcome. They also had a large free dvd collection to choose from.
