This was a last minute booking it was the cheapest hotel with availability in Old Town. No pool, rooms in need of decoration, noisy air con and very basic breakfast. The staff are excellent with their warm welcome and helpfulness and as it's so close to the centre of Old Town it's worth not having a few luxuries. Parking is... More

There is no pool or exercise room. It was in a great location right down town in Old Town. The breakfast is super small, just cereal (choice of two) and muffins. They charge $8.00 for parking. Rooms have microwave and refrigerator in rooms.

Very clean and comfortable room with large bathroom and small refrigerator, coffee maker. Parking was $8 in small garage attached to building. Didn't seem terribly secure so I made sure to not leave anything visible in the car. Old town shopping just a block or two over with restaurants, tourist shops and many crafty, handmade item booths to browse through.... More

It was clean, if a bit dated. There was a refrigerator in the room, an air conditioner that was adjustable all the way to an artic blast setting and... More

And it is in a great location for exploring Old Town, Downtown and Balboa Park !! I would definitely stay here again. Parking is a little tight so get there early. The staff... More
