Historic all-suite hotel near Balboa Park
Sitting on the edge of Balboa Park, the seven-story Inn At The Park is an independently owned, all-suite boutique hotel. The building itself dates back to 1926 and interior arches and moldings invoke a simpler time. Rooms are modern and spacious; even standard room measure 525 square feet. Guests enjoy different specialties at two on-site restaurants--Inn at the Park and Top of the Park-- which offer very different dining experiences.
Highlights
  • Situated on the doorstep of Balboa Park
  • Dine at two on-site restaurants
  • Authentic turn-of-the-century decor

Features

Inn at the Park - dont be in the dark

The title suggests - dont forget to checkout this hotel and remain in the dark. It has a perfect location: - for tranquility at night, - a roomtop view for breakfast that allows you to believe you're close to nature due to the proximity of balbou park - closeness to restaurants, nightlife and the park meaning no need for car - very spacious rooms - possibly the largest rooms i have stayed in for this price (and i travelled all round the world) - all amenities in the room - no need to call for extras

Location

Nice rooms, excellent central location. From check in it was a great experience. The room was nice and big, with a kitchen. The hotel is located in a good quiet neighborhood. A good starting point for the area, close to the beach, balboa park and down town. Would definitely come back, would recommend to others.

The in room kitchen with stove, micro wave, fridge sink etc. helps save dining out money. Excellent restaurants in the area were a once a day treat instead of another travel expense.

Huge room/suite

This is a big suite with a kitchen and dishes/silverware. Huge closet. Older but well kept and clean. Big king bed but has that plastic underneath the sheet that makes it hard for me to sleep. I had to keep the windows open all the time even in winter. Is there A/C in the summmer? I didn't see it. Love the location + continental breakfast on the roof.

Friendly staff, old fashioned building, excellent location!

Wonderful experience. This is an old building, perhaps for this reason it needs a little bit of extra work to keep it clean, but we got good help from staff and very friendly enviroment ... plus, excellent location.
