Stuffy Rooms

Was disappointed when I arrived because when I booked the hotel, it specified that parking was free. Parking is on the street or at a paid lot across the street. The room seemed to be forever humid and was worse when you took a hot shower. You'd have to open the door to the hallway to air out the room. The continental breakfast was always out of bagels, even an hour into the service. Elevator was also very slow.

Good pricing for an average hotel

The room was nice, but the service at the front wasn't very good. How about a smile? The pillows were a little too soft and they dont give you many. The location was close to little Italy, gas lamp quarter, and seaworld and San diego. So that was great but there is no hotel parking. Overall, for $50 a night, not too bad for what you pay for.

Gets The job done

Staff doesn't care about your stay. Both rooms had a busted air cond. The morning breakfast was horrible. If your looking for a place to stay The night and save a buck then this is your place. Being a pillow because theirs are horrible
