From its facade, the hotel looks completely acceptable. But then it went all downhill. Checking in during the evening, there wasn't a single person at the front desk. I called the hotel number on the off chance I would reach an operator. No luck. I waited 10-15 min before anyone showed up. The room itself on the ground floor was... More

There is no parking lot for this hotel. Street parking only with meters. There is parking on the residential streets in the area. Be aware of the restrictions. Reminder to turn your wheels on the hills. You will be cited if you don't. Very small room, with no closet. Opened the door and fell right onto the bed. The hotel... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review! Being in such a condensed place like San Diego, unfortunately we don’t have parking. The places that do have parking still require payment for them though. We take pride in our proximity to so many fine establishments nearby within walking distance, which benefits both our guests and even our... More

I was excited about even finding a hotel with a decent rate for the weekend I was there. The people at the front desk are helpful and friendly. The rooms are very nice even though there is no view. The two downsides are the parking (there is none and pay to find a non-metered street space), and the neighborhood. It's... More

I stayed there with 4 friends. 3 Room in total. Hotel Felt like it has been recently renovated new furniture and overall clean. Despite that, all our rooms smelled moldy and humid.

The location is great, close to downtown! Swamp cooler for a air conditioner. Parking across the street for 18$ a day! If you're here on business be aware there's wifi but it NEVER works! Hope they can put you in a room that's not street view or you'll be up all night with street traffic noise. The showers were terrible!... More

We stayed here for six nights and found it to be reasonably priced and conveniently located. It was an easy, 20-minute walk to get just about anywhere (Balboa Park, the waterfront, the Gaslight District, Little Italy), though we did Uber to Old Town. The breakfast room was very small, but the food was plentiful and varied, including waffles, eggs and... More

The room is super small, but it was perfect for a one night stay. Just to give you an idea of how small, you open the door to the room and the bed it practically touching the door. Was a great location downtown. I liked the atrium style set up. Because we stayed on a Sunday, the street parking was... More

The rooms are small but very neat and nice. Free breakfast is okay, nothing special but not bad. Staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. The big let down is there is no wifi in the rooms, you have to sit downstairs in the lobby or outside in the cold to get any - and even then the signal is so... More
