“Inexpensive and worth every penny”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2007

This hotel is inexpensive. Which makes the college students happy :) The rooms are small, but come fully equipped. Continental breakfast... like always kinda sucks, but efficient for a quick somethin before heading out.

It's within walking distance to lots of downtown and gay friendly areas. Also the hotel hosts the Incognito Cafe... AWESOME breakfast for anyone... including vegetarians. Also, there's a really cute cafe/bar across the street that attracts interesting people and CUTE baristas ;)

Wow, What a surprise in San Diego. The staff was excellent. The rooms had the best beds and amenities. We had two rooms. Breakfast was good, plenty of seating. Needs more hot items. The hotel was recently renovated and became a Holiday Inn. Another plus was the Manager's reception Monday - Thursday. We loved the view of the city and the staff during the reception. We already booked rooms for a July vacation. The price was higher then March, but if the stay is the same it is worth it.

  • Liked — The Staff
  • Disliked — Lack of a hot breakfast.
