Family visit to San Diego
Complimentary shuttle from airport and some attractions was good, drivers were knowledgable and enjoyed conversing with you. Complimentary breakfast was adequate to start day with good variety availale to accomodate. Complimentary water, coffee and fresh lemonade in foyer throughout day was great. Room was good size but bit warm, we slept with window open as no way to regulate heating in room nor a fan. Water pressure in shower was great, bathroom on small size but adequate. Heated poolbut did not use. Guest laundry was useful. All staff encountered were pleasant Steep hill can be avoided by entering carpark/lift entrance from 6th Avenue. We walked to Little Italy, trams, waterfront, etc-but we love walking. The Donut Bar is located a couple of blocks away, very popular with early morning queues. Fish Market restaurant at waterfront highly recommended.

Passing through
I stayed here for only 1 night due to my flight being delayed and getting into san diego too late to drive into mexicali, b.c. mexico. I need a good peaceful nights sleep. I got just that. Hotel was very quiet and I love the fact their were 24 hour security on premises. Felt very safe traveling alone.

It was a short day, one night. We came in San Diego to see our Sailor that had been deployed and our plane left early so we would be close to the airport. But would definitely stay there again.

The traveler
I stayed in 3 different rooms. Room 354 was small and simple not worth $100 a njght. Next room was # 308 it was around the same size but had a balcony with a great view of downtown. Last but not least was what they called the executive suite #316 which was a little it larger but the o ly difference was it came with a love seat and microwave. Bathroom sink was clogged and hair from maid or previous guests all around. Toilets in all rooms are low to the floor but the beds were comfy. Hotel staff were awesome! Day and night shifts. I am from san Diego and personally prefer more space and amenities but if your just passing thru and just need a quiet and basic room to lay your head then it will do.

Give Downtown San Diego a try!
Enjoyed the location. They do charge extra for parking, expensive, and didn't know until I arrived. But handy and safe parking. Good breakfast available, not just a sack to go. Loved the balcony and coffee in room. Super easy access from Interstate 5. Friendly and helpful staff, too.

Awesome experience
My room was perfectly lovely , and the hotel staff was friendly an also lovely, the only problem I had was when we checked in the lady said she charged both cards already but when we checked out we still had a balance after we was told our cards were already charged( I did not like that ) but overall this is a excellent hotel to stay at.
