Reading some of the negative reviews leaves me confused. We really liked the hotel. No sign of being dog-friendly, except the doggie treats at the front desk. We smelled no animal odor whatsoever. The location was great. Only three blocks from the gas lamp, close enough to enjoy it but far enough to be quiet. There's a coffee shop right near the lobby along with a nice little restaurant for lunch and dinner. Only two blocks away there's a nice little breakfast place and a Panera Bread for a quick breakfast. Our room was air conditioned and comfortable with a deadbolt and very comfortable bed. The towels were really nice. :-) The use of the free bikes was great, although the bikes need servicing. You get 2 free bottles of water daily which is a small thing but nice in the summer. We didn't do the free walking tour because we'd done the Segway tour but that's a neat bonus as well. The staff was super friendly and gave good advice about finding free parking on Saturday night/Sunday instead of paying for their lot. We only had a car one day and felt like you really didn't need it. Easy walking distance to the Midway & ferry to Coronado Island and right on the bus route to the zoo/Balboa park. We do wish they had a pool and a kitchenette. The only reason we didn't give it five stars is because the concierge, while friendly, didn't know the bus routes well and the front desk staff were, on occasion, under staffed. We definitely would stay here again.
