I liked the fact that it was located in downtown San Diego. it is close to a must try hodad's if you're not from around. Also it's close to the Gaslamp. So mainly location is what i liked.

I didn't like that there were a lot of homeless roaming around. I got lucky with parking but it is very limited. You could also hear footsteps from above. It is located in a busy street so sometimes you can hear cars go by.

It was cheap.

It was in a bad area. There were people trying to get in our room looking for other people.

The rooms were tore up. There were holes in the walls and the toilet leaked all over the bathroom floor. ... more

The location, close to Gaslamp.

Our room smelled like smoke, to the point we could not breathe comfortably.

I've never had anything bad to say about a room until now. Easily the worst place I've ever stayed at. ... more

I liked the free energy bars, popcorn, water bottles, microwave, and refrigerator in the room. Breakfast was good and healthy. Liked the nice front desk and maid staff. Helpful with road directions. The parking is convenient; $15/day. Wi fi free.

I stayed on the 4th floor and counted on the elevator working. It did during the majority of my stay, but broke down on the day I was leaving. Temperature control in my room was spotty, but I didn't mind it too much. Hair dryer was cold.

All nonsmoking rooms. There is a good Italian restaurant about 2 blocks away after some steep walking. Moderately priced. I drove to the hotel on one-way streets, which require planning and a downloadable map, also available from front desk. Close to Convention Center. I really liked the breakfast, which kept me from starving on some days, when I saved an extra roll and could not find dinner at the Convention Center. ... more

We stayed for one night, before continuing on to next stop, and had a wonderful relaxing time. The location is a few blocks from Balboa Park, and there is a free bus that will take you around the park. There are several excellent restaurants within a block of the hotel. While walking to the restaurant we were told by some locals about Mr. A's,which is a restaurant-bar with rooftop seating. We went up after dinner and it has an amazing view of the city. You watch the planes land in the distance while dining or having a cocktail. The hotel staff was always available to help and answer question about the area, and the breakfast was delicious! We will stay again when back in the San Diego area. ... more

The staff is very friendly. Had a problem with check in and staff went above and beyond to resolve the matter.

The location of the room made it difficult to get a good WiFi signal.

Clean, friendly, and a fair price. Stayed here many times and will continue to do so as long as standards/professionalism remain. ... more

Not much! We had termites in our room, and had to move at 10:30pm to another room! Also, we were told airplanes would cease from operations ( landing) and at 11pm they were still flying overhead! It's too close to airport and they need Pest control!

See above!

Spoke to the manager whom said he'd give us a $25.00 discount. So far, my account has been debited full-price! ... more

Parking is minimal and $15 per night. Call ahead if you drive a large SUV/Truck and they'll reserve an easier spot for you to get in/out of.

Great location and great room for the price. Clean and well kept. Looks as though it was recently renovated. The best part is its proximity to the downtown/Gaslamp district. Both nights we stayed here we were able to easily walk the 5-6 blocks to the Gaslamp restaurants/bars and back without issue. I would definitely stay here again. ... more

I liked the staff and the very clean queen suite. I would definitly stay here again if I come to San Diego. I was just ok with the regular 2 full beds room. The location of the hotel made it easy enough to walk to the light rail to get around almost anywhere.

My reservation was for the queen suite, not a regular room. This was for my first night in San Diego. I think the bill I paid should have had that reduced to reflect that one inconvenience. Otherwise, there was nothing I would have changed with my stay there.

That it was close to the Gaslamp district.

The hotel was rather old and small, and my room had a window that faced the elevator so we didn't have much privacy. The price was ridiculous for what it was.

Im was not happy with the hotel and the price of the hotel, but I was happy with the location. ... more

The best part about this hotel is the location.

The website advertised that there was a fridge in the room. We called for a refrigerator, but did not get one. There was also no safe deposit lock box in the room. The hotel was being remodeled so it was a big mess.

The staff was terrible and the very unhelpful. We will NEVER stay here again. It was like paying to stay at a Motel 6. ... more

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
