An older facility in need of upgrades but very comfortable. The staff are very accommodating and very pleasant. The location is great even though it is on a very busy street.. Parking is kind of an issue but you just have to wait until people move in the am

The hotel is in an excellent location, right next to Little Italy. The rooms are spacious inside and were always very clean. However, the close proximity to the airport means that the rooms are very noisy during the night and we found it difficult to sleep. There were also issues with the wi-fi throughout the stay for which the reception... More

Dear cinporter, I’m so glad you were able to take advantage of the San Diego Arts, Wine & Music Festival while you stayed with us, just one of many festivals and other events we have in the area.

nothing in common with the pictures. most reviews are overrated. noise was coming both from the busy street in the front and the construction work on the back. the room had spiders in the bath tub and hair on the sheets, towels and the bath tub.

Dear Radostina R, With our fabulous location right next to downtown and within 5-10 mins of the airport, we do experience a bit of traffic with all of the people exploring the area’s amenities. We try to keep construction to a minimum but we also know it is necessary to keep our rooms looking beautiful. I will definitely bring your... More

Disgusting rooms at the ground floor close to the laundry It was very noisy. The cleaning personal was permanently waking in and out from the laundry. more than 200 USD/night was a joke. I mentioned the high price, but nobody was interested. it was very dark and I had to turn on the light at lunch time.

The hotel was actively updating while we were there. Our room was clean, freshly painted with new carpet. Our very small bathroom window needs replacing as it didn't close. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location was good for access to airport, marina, cruise ships, public. Transportation and Little Italy dining.

Walking distance to Gaslamp District and Little Italy, so variety was plenty. Also a short stroll to the marina where the USS Midway and tall ships are. Free parking is a bonus!... More
