My wife and I were there for one night, as next morning, we had a breakfast get-together at San Diego Zoo.
The room was nicely laid out, and the bed was quite nice.
The TV didn't quite work correctly, but the front desk clerk came promptly when informed, and fixed it.
Breakfast was good, with enough varieties, though I would have preferred a bit more fresh fruits.
All in all, the price was good compared to other motels in the area.

Room: spacious, good size bed with enough bedding, pillows. Refrigerator had a broken freezer. Although a large room, lots of empty wasted space; they could use another dresser/drawer for more clothes storage, the single hutch is shared with refrigerator, thus only 3 small drawers available. Only 1 small collapsable suitcase stand, should get more of these and/or table. Plenty of room to place either a large chair or loveseat, since there is only 1 small desk/chair; if you have more than 1 person, everyone else will have to stand while they eat (didn't want to eat on the bed). Old air conditioner and old refrigerator kept making lots of noise, impossible to sleep at night.

Service: Front desk is friendly and accommodating. Housekeeping is good when you get it. Day 2, housekeeper checked in and asked if we wanted service (good). However on Day 3, no one came by or checked with us, even with no "do not disturb" card out (bad). I had to go to front desk to request new towels. Ditto Day 5, they saw the "do not disturb" card in the morning but when we pulled it in during the afternoon they didn't check in (bad).

Daily free "breakfast" affected by Pandemic, expect just an apple, muffin, juice in a bag. Not even a boiled egg.

Location: Great. Across from harbor with a lot of eating places e.g. Mitch's Seafood, Jimmys Famous American Tavern.

The Harbor at Shelter Island is just across the street from this hotel. It was nice to be able to walk to many restaurants and the marina.
The hotel is mostly quiet and clean. The parking lot is small so get there early and don't move your car.
Breakfast is okay, but in a cramped room, so patience is required, especially around the coffee.

I stumbled across this smaller place while walking by, and they were also listed on the third party hotel websites.
I enjoyed my stay so much, I have been back several times, and will continue to stay here if it works out.
It’s really cute on the outside, right next to tons of food, a big grocery store, Shelter Island, and lots of other cool stuff nearby.
The beach is nearby for sunset, and the area itself seems to be very local and lots of people walking and driving around doing normal life stuff.
At night Point Loma in the other side of town is way scary, but this is the very nice part of Point Loma where all the locals live in large homes and own boats, and it just feels nice if you stroll around.
The staff at this hotel have been so sweet and accomadating, I couldn’t ask for more.
Crystal, the manager is the nicest person, and is very fair, upfront on what she can help you with, is just a terrific manager!
Even the cleaning staff is so friendly and warm.
This hotel is such a secret gem for this area, don’t stay anywhere else if you happen to be in Point Loma. The other hotels surrounding this place are old and awful!
The rooms are very clean here, with hardwood floors, thank goodness no old gross carpet, beautiful shutters on the windows, no old gross curtains, everything feels clean and good here.
I travel so much and I stay at 5 star resorts to regular hotels, I know my stuff, and this place if you are into very clean and treated well is the place to stay at!
With even the Covid-19 going on, they handled it so well with making sure you feel safe.

Though the staff was nice, this hotel is not in good shade. We requested early check-in, but the room was not ready when we arrived at 11;30. No big deal, it was a request not a promise. The desk took my name and number and said they would call when the room was ready. I called at 3:30 to check and no one answered (room was promised at 3:00). Waited and finally arrived at 6:30pm and a different person apologized saying the room had been ready for hours and they no one had told her to call. Annoying but time. We went to our room and quickly discovered the door didn't latch, so it could be pushed open from the outside and slid open from the inside. Obviously and outside safety/privacy issue and definitely not going to work with our two little kids. Front desk clerk spent a few minutes trying to fixed it, but said she would need to call maintenance and it would be a few hours. That's a no go, we already check in late and need to get our little ones to bed. We were moved to a different room and given a slight discount since we were moved from a bunk bed suite to a king double combo. I'm not actually sure if the discount wall less than the room would have been had I booked that one to begin with. In the second room the phone didn't work making contacting the front desk difficult. Office informed with no solution. We dealt with it. My parents stayed onsite as well and their shower had only a half wall causing the floor to flood with each shower. They could not move rooms since they needed the bunk bed and the only other bunk bed room (ours) couldn't lock, so they stayed put. This hotel also doesn't have an elevator, so we spent much of the early morning and late night listening to people bang their rolling bags up and down the adjacent stairs. That said, the room was clean and the breakfast was as expected with fruit, cereal, a waffle maker, etc. If you need s place nearby that is fairly clean and safe this place will work, but keep your expectations low. Also be warned- they have a pool that is open year round, but it is not heated.

I was looking for an inexpensive place to stay near the airport. I should have looked harder. This hotel is more motel, with doors facing the street. In my room, the door didn’t seal properly so the sounds from the street were super loud. The wall unit heater growled all night. The furnishings and decor are pretty shabby. The worse part of my experience was having to step over a homeless person sleeping in front of the office door when I went to check out. There are loads of nicer hotels nearby. This place is not worth it.

The room was nice enough. The safe did not work, nor were they able to fix it in a timely manner. The toilet bowl was not firmly anchored to the floor. Taking a shower meant waiting at least 5 minutes before the water reached a decently hot temp. There was no Do-Not -Disturb hanger for the door. But the worst was the available parking area, or lack of it. So few spaces and very cramped. There were spaces labeled COMPACT but people ignored them making it at one point impossible to get into the lot at all. I was told by the attending staff that if there were no spaces I would have to park on the street. But the area had few to no street parking available. They do not have adequate parking given the number of rooms they provide.

My check in experience was not what I wanted due to my key not working for the king size bedroom I booked for. I was then switched over to two queens which is not a big deal really. The room was HUGE, and it appeared that everything in the bedroom was updated. In addition the shower I had was a stand up shower which was very spacious.
