Very good 8.4 From 288 reviews

Fair 4.0
Good location but horrible shower
The shower water pressure was very weak and the water temperature could not be controlled and the heater in the room did not work so well. The staff were great and the location was good.

Very nice!
Very nice hotel close to Balboa park. Everything was great. I missed seeing that there is a charge for parking but not bad at $15 a night, when it is $30 or no parking, at most places closer to the water. The streets are kind of busy and I could hear people talking late at night, as they were probably walking back from the Gaslamp district nearby, since it was a Saturday night. Regardless, I would love to stay here again.

Will come back again, great price for great value
Parking was convenient, breakfast was good, easy Lfyt pickup and staff was friendly. I had a second floor room, so it was quite, ice machine work great (be surprise how some hotels let these machines fall apart) and soda vending was fair price. Temperature control was good because many upscale hotels keep rooms at 68 degrees, no matter how much warmer you want it. Here, I found my comfortable sleeping temperature. Bed was comfortable and quick hot water for great showers. Remember northeast people, we Southern Californians love our free snow warm temperatures.

Marvelous stay in early November
A lovely stay! The front desk quickly & graciously accommodated our family's request for two rooms close together. Rooms were clean & comfortable, and free breakfast with hot & cold options was great! Coffee good! Limited Parking available onsite. Will definitely stay again!

The Hotel is quiet and easy to find. It is clean and the beds are very comfortable, loved the rooftop deck for unwinding after a all day at conferences. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would definitely book again in the future.

Good 6.0
the staff was friendly. the room was clean but needed some work. the bathroom door wouldn't close. whoever hung it didn't know what they were doing and the threshold poped when you stepped on it. The breakfast was excellent, the best we've experienced.
