“Good place for the money”
Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

Locate close to the convention center, which was my reason for choosing it, this hotel served its purpose for my trip. The hotel is having renovations done, which are needed, my room seems to be mostly renovated, or perhaps it was a low budget renovation. The room is clean and quiet, and the convention center is close enough to walk to, but I would not feel comfortable walking...

My partner and I have chosen this hotel last year because it´s been located closer to San Diego convention center and Gas Lamp sector. But the neighborhood is very strange and there weren´t no much places to eat or fast food nearby. The management and staff weren´t very friendly and helpful. Good price/quality ratio.

We stayed here for our first trip to San Diego and found the room, rather to our surprise, large, attractive, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The desk clerk was very welcoming and took a lot of trouble to help us plan our visit by pointing out attractions and marking them on a local map. We appreciated the kitchenette and the fast internet connection. Considering that we arrived at the height of the holiday season, we felt we had fantastic value for money and a very pleasant stay.

the hotel was ok for the price, but the location of right in the middle of ghetto ville, didn't impress me at all, the grafitti, trash, the homeless everywhere. the continental breakfast was to say the least was lacking. i would not stay here again. i wanted somewhere close to the naval station because of closeness to my child but that was something else. i will drive a bit further to avoid that place.

It was horrible. I was very embrass to bring myself to a standard that low. The rooms were smelly and the carpet wasn't comfortable to walk on. I could not wait to get out. It was a mistake that I will not make anymore. They only have one clerk working the front desk. This place is a dump. They need to put the same effort inside the rooms like they do for the main entrance for the hotel; it's very misleading to guests.
