Had a great time at this hotel. Roof top bar was fun and I was impressed with the food. Great location and room was clean. Would stay there again.

Great value

This was a nice hotel. An easy walk to the trolley. The Farmer's market on Saturday was an awesome bonus. The only part we didn't like was the door to the bathroom. It was a sliding frosted glass door. A little awkward for the family.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

The one way streets made it a little tricky to find the hotel.

A motel in disguise

This hotel is a motel in disguise. The bathroom was terrible, the only channels on the tv were playing Joel Olstein, and the a/c didn't work properly.

More a Motel than a Hotel

Nice location, tiny rooms, Motel-style open air hallways and general feeling and behind the Hotel façade. Not good value for money, would rather spend $20-$30 more and get a nice room next time (paid around ($110, so just a few buck more would make a big difference).

san diego near airport

I was a little surprised that it was more like a motel. Thefront of the building was new and modern looking. When we got off the elevator it was motel style and much older than it looked from the front. I would not stay again.
