First of all, I want to express that the staff is great. Very nice and as accomodating as possible. However, the hotel is old and tired. The bathroom was so small that one person could barely turn around in the room. It was about 4 feet by 5 feet? No counter space to put toiletries down. The bed was ok, pillows old, no support. Portable AC unit in room that was noisy. Breakfast was ok.. just ok. I took my son for a couple of days to see watch some ballgames at Petco park and do some sightseeing. It is in not a great part of downtown (a lot of empty buildings and homeless or shady people walking around) and it is quite a long walk to Gaslamp quarter and the ball park, so we took a cab (probably a mile and half). We took the hotel shuttle down to the trolley that got us out to SeaWorld. We walked to little Italy and had a couple of nice dinners. What really concerned me was that the permit in the elevator which did not run well, showed that it had expired on 11/12/12. That to me was a major red flag....Will not stay there again..
