                10.0

                We stayed at the hotel for 1 night. The staff brought us a crib for our son. The breakfast was great, but I didn't find any protein foods that was advertised unless you count sausage gravy. Overall, the room and hotel was clean.

                The parking was horendous!! You have to park in a parking garage that is not made to fit anything over a compact car. I was scared to death that I was going to knock out a wall trying to make the turns throughout the garage.

              • Single
                8.8

                Great front desk staff. Cleaning staff did a very good job.

                Capets and hallway walls are very worn.

                The friendly staff and their ability to help us when needed

                Yes, the parking but that is everywhere in San Diego.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Reasonably comfortable and for the price it was a good airport overnight hotel - free transfer to and from hotel - but it took a while for pick up from airport.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Really like that there was a breakfast included in the price of the hotel. The people at the front desk were always friendly & helpful.

              • Single

                Unbelievable value for the money in downtown San Diego! Great location within walking distance of the Gaslight District, restaurants, and shopping; friendly and helpful front desk clerks; a beautiful, clean room: great full breakfast & freshly baked cookies at 8 P.M.; morning paper delivered under door, 3 computers in business center, free shuttle bus to and from the airport

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                It was clean

                This hotel was a nightmare to find. My gps wouldn't find it. Even the locals did not know where it was, which does not say much for it's location. The parking system isn't great either. Personally I prefer to be able to park up and check in, whereas here you have a 15min parking time to check in and get into your room before then having to drive round to the parking lot. Not ideal.

              • Single
                7.4

                I liked the very friendly and helpful staff. I never had any issues with them and every request I made was fulfilled quickly. The place was kept clean.

                The ac didn't keep the room as cool as I like. The bathroom is crowded, especially with the door swinging in. I would have liked to have been able to open the door to the small patio outside. I thought the price was kind of high, but then I found San Diego expensive to begin with.

              • Older travelers
                8.0

                The staff was so very friendly and accomodating. The breakfast was great. The bathroom and living area was a bit small but it was manageable. The hotel was quiet. The cafe across the street was a definite plus as there isn't really anything close by.

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                The staff was very nice and the hotel was very clean and cozy. Loved everything!

                room was clean, staff was pleasant.

                My rrom was at the end of the hall. the very end. This made me very nervous as a solo female traveller.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Excellent breakfast. Convenient location - very accessible. Hotel staff was very helpful. Rooms were always cleaned and made-up very well. A very competent operation at a very good price.

              • Couple
                10.0

                The staff were helpful and the free shuttle service was excellent with a very friendly driver. Our stay was made very comfortable. The room was spotless and the bed comfortable. The complimentary continental breakfast was satisfying too. With a very short walk to the brilliant Gas Lamp Quarter we had a very good stay.
