The perfect place to book at San Diego downtown

volcanobreath1979 on Mar 15, 2022

A nice and cozy hotel which is centrally located. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. They have one bedroom suites and studios with a kitchenette. Breakfast is complimentary. The staff are super helpful, warm and go out of the way to assist you in any manner, at any time of the day or night. A huge shout out to Candice, Daniel, Brenda and Gladys at the front desk. Definitely recommended for your San Diego sojourn!

Great Location

TraceleneJSJ (Riverbank, California) on Mar 02, 2022

My 3 sisters and I stayed her here for a birthday weekend and had the 2 bedroom suite. We loved the room and all the space. Each bedroom had a queen bed and bathroom. The bedrooms are separated by a living room with sofa sleeper and kitchenette with dining table and chairs. It was great for the 4 of us. There was a continental breakfast each morning with a variety of items. It was overall a quiet hotel, easy to get in/out of. We enjoyed the location of this hotel, being across the street from the Harbor and walking distance to many downtown shops/restaurants. A few steps away is a Jack in the Box and the local fire department. We always felt safe walking around, day and night.

Worn down and dirty

red6ty (denver) on Jan 16, 2022

Ever aspect and part of the room was worn and dirty. Stained ceiling, stained carpet with spills of a white substance, dirty doors, torn curtains, stained tubs, scratched and nicked furniture and kitchen cabinets, dull knives, no dishsoap, crumbs all over the toaster shelf, dirty and smeared windows and smoke detectors from the 1980’s. No maid service. Dust everywhere. Just not a healthy place. Especially for what they charge. Ridiculous rip off. The only and i mean only good thing about this place is the location.

Great Location

genek277 (Salisbury, North Carolina) on Jun 13, 2021

Great location near the waterfront and Little Italy. Desk clerk was very helpful during our stay - he gets high marks for friendliness. 2 bedroom unit was comfortable. While it is an older hotel and could use some updating, it is hard to beat the price and location.

The room smelled like mold and mildew. Found hair in the sheets, and their to-go breakfast was just a bagel. No fruit, cereal, water, juice or anything. The cups and dishes provided in the room all had stuff on them. Also. Walls and floors were super thin. I could hear children screaming around the corner when both of our room doors were closed.
