Was this new, modern, stylish, sophisticated, well appointed, and centrally located. No - but it was a couple short blocks from the upper end of Old Town on a quiet street. 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

Although there is nothing that really sticks out about this hotel in a resort type of way, it is very affordable, has comfortable beds and is clean. 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

It's a two star, indeed. But it has great bones. There was a little booking error so our first room was a single queen with a small kitchen and dining area: terrible carpet... but cute. But we really wanted two beds, so that was arranged very quickly. Much larger room, good sized bath. microwave, fridge, dated, but clean and suited... More

Spent 2 nights here for MCRD graduation. The price was great and the staff was amazing! We had several special requests because we had a marine who needed to change clothes and several hours to kill between graduation and our flight home. By that point we had been checked out of the hotel for 6 hours. They happily accommodated us... More

Staff was friendly and room was nice. Stayed 2 hours after check out and wasn't charged. Would recommend this hotel, great location walking distance to old town. Quiet room and room was clean. Room is slightly old but still got price and location is good deal.

We picked this hotel as it was close enough to our boat tour starting point, and for that it worked well. It was relatively clean, though there were some things of issue: 1. The elevator had a out of order sign on our level, but not on the ground level, so I don't know if it was actually broken or... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times in the past and we keep coming back. It is a nice hotel and you can't beat the price. The location is a block or two from the Historic Old Town San Diego.

This quality of this place is so far below a budget hotel it should be shut down. The photos with which we judged the hotel on Expedia were doctored to show a much nicer place. The breakfast was a stand up cup of coffee (blah) and a terrible muffin. Our bed was good but I was afraid to walk barefoot... More
