We are Wyndham Timeshare owners. We live in San Diego and use this as a place to stay for a night out on the town in the Gaslamp. Our friends often like to stay here and have enjoyed it. This is located on 5th avenue and E street. It is a block away from Horton Plaza or the Hard Rock... More

Beautifully located; friendly staff, large spacious rooms. Situated around and energetic nightlife. Unlike the other person who reported a "timeshare" sales problem, when we told the timeshare people "we were done", they were very courteous and left us alone.

We stayed here just to use up our Wyndham discovery points. First of all, we could not book this place for 2 nights (they have a 3 night minimum stay) so we were forced to pay an extra night which we really did not want to do. This was one of the reasons we did not like this point system.... More

Clean and comfy. Staff addressed us by name all the time. Kitchenette had everything. Bring food and spend your $$$ on other things. Movies available at the desk. Gym is loaded. They also have a sauna and steam room. Use the showers by the gym if you need to family ready faster. They also have a washer and dryer BONUS!
