For the past four years we have been visiting San Diego during the months of December and January. Island Inn, which is located in the Gaslamp area and walking distance to the Seaport Village, is an affordable, pleasant place to reside in. The lodgings are airy, bright and comfortable. We couldn't ask for anything more.

This is the 2nd time I've stayed here. I've also stayed at the J St Inn, which is another in the same group. This one has the edge, as it has a roof terrace. They are both just great value. The rooms are basic, but perfectly clean. Free Wi Fi in room. This time we were lucky enough to even have a balcony. It's quite a busy area, so there is quite a lot of traffic noise, so I would recommend taking some earplugs. Also, the window blinds let in a lot of light, but that is my only criticism. The reception staff are all very friendly. It's great to have the kitchen facility. Just a short walk to Ralphs Grocery Store. There is a fridge and a microwave, but no plates, cutlery, or toaster. Just take some plastic or disposable ones, no problem. You have to pay a $200 deposit, which is refunded when you leave. The minimum stay is 7 nights. That means that you have to pay for 7, even if you don't actually stay for that long. Even if you only stay 3 or 4, it's still worth it as it's still far cheaper than anything else in that area. It's right in the middle of the Gaslamp District, and Horton Plaza is just up the road. Theses amazing residencies are the reason we keep visiting the city! We were on vacation, but a lot of the other guests were longer term. Everyone just gets along very well. There is no maid service if you're only there for a week, not sure if that's the same if you're there for longer. There is a very reasonably priced laundry facility and a small gym on site too. If only there were more of this kind of affordable accommodation in other cities.

The hotel in itself is not magnificent, but given the price and location, it is a great value. It is a clean basic extended stay place for students, and young professionals who do not want to pay daily 200-300 bucks but still want to enjoy the proximity to san diego downtown, historic gaslamp district, and the train station. Note that if you are a "light" sleeper, you should not rent here because it is really close to the train station and you will hear the beeping all night long.

Good hotel, much cleaner than hotels in the surrounding area. Lots of space in the room. Prices were low around $80-90. Staff was very nice and very helpful.
