“Loved it! Will definitely come back when in San Diego!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2011

I made a reservation online through the property's website by going to "discounts". I put in my information and the staff called me directly. The nice thing about this was I was able to negotiate a good price. We got a room with a kitchen. The kitchen comes with a pot, plates, utensils, a microwave, and a sink. Although we had intentions to cook, we ended up eating out for the short time we were there. The bed was pretty comfortable, and there was a pull-out couch (we didn't use it). We slept very well. The only complaint was that the couch was difficult to sit in because the springs were shot, so it sank down really low. But really, it was no big deal. Nice bathroom with all the necessities. Decorations and colors make it feel more expensive than it really is. TV with movie channels. Very friendly staff.
It's in a great location just a block from a harbor. We took a nice walk around the harbor. Starbucks is nearby, as well as some bars and restaurants. Short drive from beaches.
Free parking is a huge plus, as well as free wi-fi internet!
Overall, we were more than pleased with our stay here. I'd highly recommend this location as a budget-friendly option in a very good location for your stay in San Diego.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 114. No views (but I don't think any rooms have views). Quiet, has window in b...

Good price. Wish we had more access to towels and other ammenities, our hours didn't match the sleep schedule of the staff. They were very friendly and commonly available but not whenever we needed towels it seemed. Rooms are small but clean, you'll have everything you need. Good location.

We have stayed here 2 times . The manager Ray was very helpful for us because we booked on Expedia and it was the wrong room that we desired, but Ray gave us the correct room at the same price. Very nice! The 2 room suite was very adequate and had all the amenities that you find in the high end hotels that can get very expensive in San Diego.
It has a great location on the main street and within walking distance to stores, restaurants and the beautiful marina. It is freeway close to all of San Diego's main attractions.
I have just booked two more nights for next week.
A budget traveler's delight. Here's a tip. Don't book Point Loma Inn and Suites through a booking agent but call direct for the best price. They are very accommodating.

im not a super hotel snob or anything, but its not up to my standards for a few reasons. firstly, let me say that the staff was honestly GREAT. we had some changes last minute so we changed our dates last moment literally a day before. they accomadated the changes without hesitation. on their website they have a name your price type deal, and the owner bargained with me and gave me a fair price around 48 a night so it was very very cheap. we stayed one night. we were supposed to stay two but i couldnt deal with it here. when we got there checkin was fast and i asked for lower floor because we have a toddler and we got one. first, the area is really divey looking but alot of san diego is like that. i have been to san diego SEVERALLL times throughout my life and i know that it aint all bright and shiny everywhere. but this was really not a nice area. the hotels exterior is nothing pleasant. it was really bad looking but they did work hard to keep it clean, its just old. when you see the pics online, it seems pretty decent and looked like nice furnishings, however when you go in, they arent. they are VERY cheap, and lots of it was falling apart, wobbly tables, and there is a mirror headboard that we were worried about falling over. it was a kitchen suite, however it was so cramped and tiny in the room. the bed was very uncomfortable. and the oven had a bad smell when we used it. the bathroom was not very nice, decent but not great. there was a window in there too right infront of the shower. most of the room was cleaned well, however the carpet was FILTHY but i find this a problem even in really nice hotels there werent enough towels though :/ this place was probably worth the price for the AREA, but i really wouldnt stay again. at night, it was extremely noisy outside, not just cars, but people talking and doors shutting, the doors and walls are like paper. we also had no place to set up my sons pack and play thats how crowded it was so he got in bed with us. the beds wasnt comfortable, and that combined with the noise, we BARELY slept that night so we checked out early the next day i said i couldnt take a moment more of it. id rather pay the 40 more and go to a holiday inn. we tried the budget route, and it just was not for us. its very old and dingy and though the staff is great and DO work hard to keep it best as it can be, IMO it just needs to be torn down and redone.

This is a cute little hotel that has a wonderful staff and it located in the middle of everything...only a 5-10 minute drive to anywhere you would want to go in San Diego. The down side of that is it is off of a busy road and the rooms are not the most quiet. Nothing ear plugs can't solve though. The rooms are small, but they were clean. Folks this isn't a Hyatt or a Hilton, but if your looking for a cheap place to stay so you can spend your money elsewhere this is a great place. Ray the manager was always accomodating and there are microwaves and fridges in the rooms which is nice if your staying for a long period of time. We would definately stay here again!

We had a fantastic experience at the Point Loma Inn. We needed a place to work on line and where we could cook a meal or two. The family here accommodated all of our needs- way beyond what we would expect for the reasonable price. We would definitely come back and would recommend it to our friends.
