We stayed in a standard room with beautiful views of the marina. Excellent location, near the airport with prompt complimentary airport shuttle service (be sure to call the hotel when you arrive) and about a $15 one cab ride to the Gaslamp district. The rooms furnishings and carpet looked new including the floor hallway carpeting. The room bathroom still looked original with a piece of tile that was missing, room door and wallpaper in the floor hallway also looked worn and not replaced. Customer service was outstanding from the courtesy shuttle, front desk and server at breakfast. What makes this hotel special are the views, location and service. The hotel could continue to remodel/renovate to justify the price.
