For $200/night, felt like we had been violated. We came for SEAL graduation and The "hotel" was just nasty! It was old and dilapidated and the rooms were just dusty and gross. Our room had no shower curtain, the carpets are old and the bed sheets were questionable. Our bed was literally butted up against the door and the refrigerator... More

This is a basic hotel within walking distance to the harbor. The room was clean but there was some water damage to the walls in the bathroom and the blinds need a good dusting. It is a small room but you get what you pay for. The owner and his family are extremely nice and accommodating. We would not hesitate... More

There are only two good reasons to stay at this hotel - one is the location and the other is the free parking. The parking lot was very small and it was only one way so if you wanted to back out of the parking spot, you literally had to back out onto Grape St and hope that there were... More

We stayed there for a long weekend in February. We had noticed when getting home that my wife had lost something in the room. We called the hotel and the owners had told us that they had found the item in question. Ever since then they have been giving us the run around and have still not returned any calls.... More

This hotel is the only one in town with free parking. There is an excellent view of the harbor, and one can walk a short distance to many bars and restaurants. We booked our reservation through Hotwire and they lied and told us there was self-service laundry here...upon telling us that there were not, and had never been any laundry... More

Good hotel that I'm expect. They have public parking and Free WiFi. The very important thing is 3 mins walk to 7-11 and 10mins walk to Little Italia that a lot of restaurant and hanging out place. If you are coffeholic, please bing your cup or instant coffee as well

I am visiting San Diego for personal business since the end of November 2015 and is staying at here with my daughter.
