I stayed here two different times and was very impressed. My rooms were immaculate and the staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. The hotel is located in an industrial area, so, if you are without a car, any shopping or restaurants within walking distance is limited to Old Town. However, the trolley stop is just a block from the hotel, and you can easily get to downtown restaurants or other attractions in San Diego. The trolley also goes to the border. I read a previous comment about the hotel being in an unsafe area. However, I'm a 74 year old woman, and I felt no qualms about walking alone to and from the trolley or Old Town. I plan to stay here again whenever I'm in San Diego.
