Rooms are nice and clean!! It's nothing fancy, but a good place to sleep, because with so many things to do within walking distance that's all you will do in the room. Beaches within 15 minutes drive, bay area views.

We stayed here for 2 nights. We felt a bit unsafe due to not being able to close the windows at the back of the room. We booked a suite for the kids but they ended up staying in the room with us anyhow, as the hotel backs into what looks like abandoned houses. Was a bit freaky. Advertised free... More

If you're looking four bells and whistles or fancy decor, this isn't the place for you. It's a fantastic location with very friendly and helpful staff, and at a good price. No breakfast, but there are dozens of fantastic local eateries within minutes, walking and driving.

We were in San Diego over Labor Day weekend for the Festival of Sail. This hotel is quite basic. Small room, even smaller bathroom. A bit worn in the bathroom; loose toilet seat, chips in the tile, small cubby hole for soap, but no place to hold shampoo tube, could only get HBO movie on the television (this wasn't a... More

The worst hotel I have ever stayed!!! Not wort your money. Found cockroaches in the restroom. The is no iron, hair dryer, in the room. Its great locations but, you can hear all the noise around. The parking is small, if there is no parking you can park at Pacific Inn hotel. Wouldn't stay there ever!!

If you're looking for a bed to sleep on that is in downtown San Diego for a reasonable price this is the place for you. We walked to Little Italy every night for dinner and drinks. Great location and only 5 minute drive to the Gaslamp district. But my biggest problem was parking. Not enough parking so for the overflow... More

This place was conveniently located and everything we did was in walking distance. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because the room we had was in the back with a view of a dirt lot instead of the bay. Rooms were very clean and the staff was extremely nice. Would definitely stay her again and... More

Excellent, cheap, wifi and friendly staff. Near trolley station. Three minutes to centre of the city. My recommendation for family without kids:) Airport is very near and there is the noise from the aircrafts.

Dear Radim V, Although we do occasionally experience some noise from the airport, we love being so close to both the airport and the trolley station. It makes traveling a breeze and very easy for guests to save money by skipping the rental car! Downtown, Little Italy, and the waterfront are all within walking distance. Thank you for your kind...
