Reviewed September 9, 2013

I visit San Diego every other month and I like the boutique hotels...however....Within 5 minutes of getting into my room sewage began backing up in the sink in the bathroom. Response from staff was quick to get me to another room but the smell permeated the whole floor. Everything was old. And NOT In a good way. Bed sheets were stained and had holes...no I did not take pictures....I couldn't check out fast enough! Rooms are tiny,tiny tiny. No closet. Bathroom was so small the door blocked the shower when it was open so to get in it was necessary to go in, step around the side of the toilet and then close the door to reveal the shower. Water was hot and cold.
I get that there would be street noise (comedy club next door) that wasn't bad, but the walls are paper thin so ANY noise comes through the walls.
Staff was very nice to me. Some were very friendly, others just the minimum of being cordial. I would give the staff a 4 out of 5. They try. Not much to work with at this hotel.
Images are very misleading unless you are going to stay in one of the big suites.
Never going back.

Room Tip: Elevators are from 1913. If you must stay here choose a low floor so you can take the stairs.
