This place was pretty nice. It was a little tricky to find, it’s not advertised very well. The service was great when we checked in. You have to ask for the coffee maker it’s not in The room. Overall a good stay.

The only really good thing about it is the location. Although, the surrounding area is a little industrial; as many people have mentioned; it's a short distance from places like the Gaslamp, Balboa Park, and San Diego Zoo. The driveway is really small; only allowing access to one vehicle in or out. There's enough parking to allow one vehicle per room, spaces are pretty tight. First impression of our room (26) was good. Appeared to be clean and in order. Later, we realized how dirty the wood floor was when walking around bare foot and stains on the bathtub floor and what appeared to be mold or mildew in the grout. There is no real counter space where the sink is and the towels are located on the small table next to the mini fridge and microwave, not in the bathroom (which we found strange). The windows look like they were just upgraded because they still had the decals on them. We had difficulty flushing the toilet. It took a few tries to actually flush, then when filling the reservoir, it had difficulty filling because you could hear it still filling it, which usually indicates the the stopper needs to be replaced. Walls are very thin, we could hear everything. TV would only show one channel (AMC). There is no phone or coffee machine in the room. There's only a shelf on one side of the bed to put your belongings, no nightstands. Very thin blankets, 3 pillows for a king bed that we're not comfortable and spring matress that was not comfortable either.

Great overall
The room was great overall! Check in was quick and easy. Convenient parking. The bathroom needed a few minor upgrades but otherwise everything was good! Bring quarters for the ice machine...

Pros: Overall a nice spacious room with fridge and microwave. As others have stated the area is a bit rough but it's right next to the freeway and a quick drive away to Downtown. A decent stay for the price, just for a night. Cons: There was no comforter which was surprising--just a bedsheet, so I had to ask for another blanket which was still a bit thin. Our room smelled strongly of cleaning product so we had to open the windows for a while. Parking spaces are present, but can be a bit tight if the place is full.

The courtyard was cute but the frontage not very impressive. If I had not made the accommodations in advance I might not have even stopped in or recognized that it is it as a hotel. The room was clean and comfortable which is usually all I expect.
