La Pensione is a very cute hotel with the ambiance of a small Italian villa tucked away somewhere in the outskirts of Italy, with a quaint little quartyard to enjoy a pleasant cup of cappuccino from a small coffee shop conveniently located and accessible from the same quartyard. The Hotel room was small and very basic but had all the basic necessities, "My wife said it was cozy, romantic, clean and had character". The hotel is located in a very good location where you are walking distance to Little Italy , several small pubs, micro breweries and good restaurants you can also walk to the USS Midway Museum a big Naval Aircraft Carrier Ship . The only complaining I can do with regards to my stay was the parking , we unfortunately arrived late an the hotel parking was full leaving no other choice but to park on the street directly in front of the hotel which doesn’t sound bad until you note that most all parking in the city San Diego takes quarters. This was not the icing on the cake, I was also informed that Saturday Morning they hold a farmer’s market directly in front of the hotel on Date Street and the vehicles need to be moved very early in the morning like 4:00AM or risk the chance of towing. I moved it and parked on Kettner Blvd.
This place was affordable and pleasantly located where I wonted to be, so you make the call. Would I stay again? “YES”.
