My second time to Ann's lovely inn. Besides the fabulous location, Ann is a wealth of knowledge and assistance. The rooms are comfortable and I hope to try them all! I'll likely not ever look for anyplace else to stay in San Diego.

Hello Anil, We do have 2 rooms next to each other families, or couples traveling together just love. They are $169/night for each guest room. We do have a 2 person maximum/guest room. All guest rooms have one queen size bed, with no opportunity for rollaways or airmattresses due to fire code. If I can assist you with a reservation, don't hesitate to call and I can describe these rooms in detail. Cheers, Ann 619-990-2441
