The J. Street Inn is in a category all of its own. Seriously, it is a one-of-a-kind throughout the world. Situated at First and J, literally the fourth corner of downtown San Diego, and the Gaslamp, it sits as a quiet semi-luxurious outpost among the hustle and bustle world that is America's Finest City. I've been coming here for 15...

It's the most affordable hotel in SD. It's location is nothing less than perfect, there is a troller station just few steps from the hotel, the Gaslamp Quarter is very close and it gives many gastronomic and entertaining options. To sum it up, it is cheap, comfortable and well located.

I stayed here for 5 weeks as a foreign student. For the price, the rooms are good. But unfornately it's not very clean and the rooms in the 1st floor are very gloomy. The best point in this hotel is the location, near Seaport Village and the Gaslamp Quarter.

I stay here for work, which my employer pays for the room. The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is in central downtown San Diego. It is within walking distance to just about everything: Seaport Village, the Embarcadero, Petco Park, Gaslamp Quarter, Horton Plaza which has a 24hr Fitness Sport, Santa Fe depot where you can catch...

I just stayed at the J St. Inn for the 7th time over the last 8 years, each time as a tourist. You can believe all the positive reviews and descriptions, ignore the negative.
