Great Location, Price and Access to Gas Lamp/Downtown/Waterfront/Airport

dreampilot (Vancouver, Washington) on Mar 07, 2024

There are a few great Marriott properties in Downtown/Gaslamp San Diego and this is one of them. Located on the edge of Little Italy and a Red Line Train stop a block away, this property has a good view of the waterfront as well as within easy walking distance of the waterfront and Gas Lamp district as well. The front desk staff person Candace was an amazing help on recommending local places to eat and the best way to pop down to the border without a car for a day trip into Tijuana. Rooms are pretty much standard 'Residence Inn" style with many rooms having small stand only balconies. There's a pool and fire pit as well. A short hop from the airport and centrally located for Uber trips or rental car access to the further reaches of the area - I strongly recommend this property. It's often a lot less expensive than the hotels closer to the Gas Lamp but just as good!

Poorly Maintained. Spend $20 more to stay somewhere decent.

My room had a lot of maintenance and housekeeping issues which I brought to the attention of the front desk who assured me they would address them but never addressed any of them. The room I stayed in had a dirty shower curtain, wet carpet due to a leaking balcony door, the private balcony had not been cleaned and had the prior guests cigarette butts all over it, and an air filter that had not been changed in years.

Right near the water

We chose this spot to be near our departing cruise ship. Nice location basically in Little Italy. Great restaurants nearby. The hotel is fine - old but not ratty looking. A more reasonable option than the ritzy Residence Inn right across from the port. Decent for a night or two.

Nice hotel and location

Great hotel for the family to stay. Great location to easily walk to restaurants and a great lounge/bar area with beautiful views. The hotel had nice options for breakfast. The room was spacious and allowed for us to spread out. I’d come back again.

5 Night stay 31dec

Duncan5003 on Jan 16, 2023

5 night stay from Dec31 booked room with sea view but arrived 3hrs early and were offered a ground floor room which we took so our choice .rooms as others have said are dared but they are of a good size clean and tidy. The 2 TVs come in useful as had our daughter. As others also say the WiFi is indeed hit and miss but more hit to be fair.location good yes you can hear trains and planes .you xan walk to local tram stop and 7/11 store in 3 mins .we managed trips to seaword the zoo and mission beach all on public transport. The MTR website is excellent. On getting back to the UK we noticed the hotel had taken a extra $470 they did reply quick and say it was a holding charge and has indeed be returned we just wernt made aware of that. I suggest this property is worth a stay if you are in this area
