Find another place. Booked a room with 2 queens and a pullout for 4 adults and 2 children. Arrived to find 2 doubles and no pull out. We were given a small air mattress for 2 children to sleep on. Pay the extra for a better place that has amenities.
This hotel gets a couple of stars only because of its location. Other than that, it is a very run down hotel. Check in was pretty smooth. The lobby and passage areas have a weird smell. The rooms are small, cramped and dingy. The lighting is very poor. It also has a very weird layout. The washbasin is right next to the bed. That did not sit well with me. The bed is quite small and squeaky. T It is probably an option for someone who just wants to spend the night at their hotel. Even then I wouldn’t recommend this hotel. It does have a window AC, so you hear a hum all night long. For the price I paid, I would definitely it recommend staying here.
It gets two stars only because of location, the little dorm refrigerator kept some gelato from melting, and the provided breakfast, while uninspiring, has enough basics to get you going at least until lunch time. I found the packaged cheese Danish and cinnamon buns to be good. I guess there's no accounting for taste. The place is a dump, reminded me of a college crash pad. This is where you, and six (or more) of your closest friends cram into for the Comic Con weekend. Light fixture in lobby hanging by wires, carpets worn, elevator dinged up and not working for a time. The room, where to start? The layout was grotesque. The bathroom contained a tub/shower and a toilet, only. The sink was outside next to the bed, The dilapidated cabinet The furniture was banged up, the wood floor needed refinishing, more like replacing, and it just plain looked dirty. Central air, you gotta be kidding. Noisy window units provide the constant hum reminiscent of a 1950's interstate motel on the plus side it does work as a white noise machine for sleeping. Parking is $32 per day, self-parking. Valet.? The room rate is like the stock market, uncertain. For a three day stay, middle of the week, no conventions in town, we had three different rates. While we're on the subject of rates, there were a lot of sketchy folks roaming around, in the elevator, at breakfast. I'm not trying to be snobby but it made me question whether this place provided SRO (single residence occupancy) units or subsidized housing. The front desk denied it it but actually qualified it by saying they can't turn anyone away who has the money to pay for a room... Last but not least, the staff. The cleaning folks were nice and did a good job. The desk clerks were a mix of friendly and totally uninterested. The nicest reception we got was when we checked out, and no, we weren't problem customers glad to be seen leaving. Would I ever stay here again? Guess...…
Rooms were very clean and large. Comfortable beds. Easy walk to restaurants and shops. Staff was very friendly. They do have parking close so you have assigned spot but it cost $32 a night. This I did not like. All hotels should have their own parking lots.
The hotel is not bad. It served the purpose of being in the Gaslamp district with walking access to restaurants. Rooms are poorly kept, not very comfortable though being in a king room. Breakfast was on the go because of Covid but coffee downstairs was good. Room had coffee machine, microwave and mini fridge. Our room had a ceiling fan so we didn't have to use the AC that was quite old.
There was a few spiders that came down on our beds. and they had no waters. only deinking water stations. plus they close all doors at 11 so if u leave and returj after 11 theres no going in. Overall a well balanced trip.
Please check your information provided to Trip Advisor as your hotel is listed as one of Top Ten Pet Friendly Hotels in San Diego. It is listed as #8 Best value of 121 Pet Friendly Hotels in San Diego. However, your website showed that your hotel does not allow pets! Thankfully, we checked on this before booking a room at your hotel. Otherwise, it would have cost us if we did not check. I took a picture of the above information as a proof. You can also google this information by searching for Top Pet Friendly Hotels San Diego.
We came off of a cruise ship with several friends who booked this hotel. All members of our group were disappointed. Rooms were dirty, TV's did not work, hotel located at busy intersection and was noisy plus one party reported clothing stolen.
Close to everything you need as a traveller. Right at the heart of Gaslamp Quarter! Within short walking distance are small delis & grocery stores, cozy coffee & bagel shops, stores for signature sandwiches, trolley stations, 7-11, CVS, etc. Free lemon water and brewed coffee 24/7. Room was modest and small but it had everything we needed. Choice of breakfast was repetitive. Would have enjoyed it more if there were alternating options. Overall still a good experience.
The location is perfect if you are there to check out the action, especially on a weekend. Within walking distance to everything. Expect some street noise otherwise. The room was small. The bathroom was small (sink was in the bedroom area; toilet and shower only in the bathroom). The bed was small (full/double, NOT a queen). The one elevator was always a wait. Parking ($24/day) is reserved, thank goodness, as they have a limited number of spaces and once they run out you are on your own which, from what we could tell, would NOT be fun. The staff was friendly, helpful and patient. The mixed clientele was fun. We felt the area was quite safe, The room was dated, but clean. Not sure we would book again, but for the price it was a good choice for our short stay of 2 nights.
