As expected

This is a cheap hotel in a convenient location. Nothing special, but okay at $109 per night given its proximity to downtown and the harbor.

Not Great

Only stay here if you can get a really good room rate (under $130). Otherwise much better value available elsewhere. Decent free breakfast included. Fitness Room is a joke. WiFi signal is weak and unstable. Alleged hard-wire network is NOT available in most rooms. Some of the rooms are accessed from outside and noisy.

Good location for conference

The hotel is well kept. The shuttle service to the conference center was key. The staff is the highlight of the hotel. All were curteous, friendly and genuine. The workout room is very small.

Good location and decently priced for value

I stayed here for work, which was also near the airport, and my bosses' house, which is in Old Town. Great location, and you can tell it has been recently renovated inside. I will say that I stayed on the 1st floor (actually underneath the lobby level), on the side closest to the freeway (which also happens to be side closest to ocean and city view.) If I stay here again, I'll ask for a room on the other side to muffle the early morning freeway rush traffic noise.

Great deal with great amenities!

I was really pleased with this hotel. Very clean, 99% friendly staff, close to Old Town and the airport, and best of all, an on-call driver who picked me up in Old Town after dinner! Nice room (although mattresses good but not great); decent breakfast, pretty patio outside (although I didn't discover this until I was leaving), and a fully stocked mini-mart inside the hotel. A great deal for the price and I would definitely consider returning.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

For families, definitely go to the Momon Battalion Museum in Old Town. What a great, interactive museum for kids and families, and it's free. (They don't push the religion practically at all, so don't worry about that.) Delightful tour guides at a state-of-the-art museum. Well worth the walk and they have coupons for local restaurants.

Nice place, great staff, so-so location

This was a very nice chain hotel. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was very comfortable and the price was right. It compares very well with other experiences I've had through[...]. The only negative is that other than Old Town, it's not that near other SD locations, although they had a good shuttle service. San Diego has a trolley system that is ok, but it's really more of a car city. The Comfort Inn has free parking, though, so that helps.
