Dolphin Motel is close to Point Loma, and from the outside does not look too impressive.
But once you check in, you are greeted with friendly service, a clean room (albeit small) but enough amenities for a comfortable stay. The heat works. The bathroom with a standing shower is clean. Towels are provided, so is a LCD screen TV with satellite channels. The room rate is unbeatable for San Diego. There's wifi provided as well.
Free breakfast is included, although not a full hot spread, it is sufficient to get you powered for the day (muffins, fruit, coffee, OJ, milk, tea) so you don't start your sightseeing on an empty stomach.
The owner came by to help me when I was getting my breakfast on a rainy morning. He helped me carry my plate up with me to my room as I held my coffee.
Recommended for quality budget stay!
