Recent guest reviews

Hotel gets renovated at the moment. Nice rooms friendly staff. Close to harbor and downtown.

Staff was friendly enough, beds were older, parking lots was under construction and there was a large bin in the way of most parking, the worst part was BLOOD on the sheets..... we don't expect a lot however clean sheets in a hotel like this is, don't stay here

Extra $16dlls for the underground parking. The bed needs to be replaced, it wasn't very comfortable and it squeaked.

Pros: flat screen tv with a good amount of channels, charging station on bedside table with 2 electrical and 2 USB ports. Clean and not too noisy Cons: This is a bare bones motel in downtown San Diego. The beds are a bit uncomfortable because they are old school metal spring mattress. The shower head for some reason is very short. I am 5'4" and the shower head was below my head! It is a 2 story with a courtyard. The furniture is dark wood and at least 25 years old.

The A/C was not working and no towels. Their breakfast was bad also pancake maker broken.

Despite the apparent cleanness of the room you can find concerning signs of decay like a dead cockroach sticking out of the bathroom ceiling fan. Also I got bitten by bed bugs.

After waiting in line for 20 minutes we finally got into our room. It was cold as ice. I tried to adjust the temperature but the knob was broken off. Written in sharpie next to another knob was ON and OFF. It should have read FREEZING or SWEATING. The room phone was dead. The only seating besides the beds was an old desk chair with ratty arm rests. We made our reservations for 4 and only had 2 towels and 4 flat pillows. I had to walk to the office to request more. The woman at the desk acted like I was inconvecing her. When we came back from our day out I had to walk back to the office to ask for towels and pillows... again. On our second night our kids were crying to go home. If we weren't so tired we would have left. Pictures of our back window view is attached. We had to keep the curtains closed at all times. it was as dark as a cave with dim fluorescent bulbs.

Good: We felt safe. Good: We were put into a suite which was great. Not so good: We went out and purchased Febreze ultra strength and Air Wick because of really bad odor. Good: You could open the windows for fresh air. Not so good: The really old towels and bedding; even though we were registered as 2 occupants, housekeeping shorted towels and washcloths; but were gladly stocked by check-in personnel. Good: The laminate floor made our socks black. Good: Underground parking is available if the hotel lot is full.

*The bathroom was way too small and I felt like I was in the movie Elf. *Everything was way too old. Plugs didn't work. Bathroom door wouldn't latch. Shower had water under the plastic so it felt like I was unstable. *Worker from hotel finished his shift and proceeded to drink with some buddies in the parking lot. *NOT a Gaslamp hotel ( unless you like walking really long distances in a dangerous neighborhood).

The room was okay. The pillows were super thin and there was someone's hair in the bed. We didn't have towels when we got there so had to ask for them. When we got them there was hair on them so that was gross. The wall were paper thin and we heard the people next to us talking all morning and couldn't sleep. But the staff was nice.

The room was large but spartan, firm but comfortable bed. No carpeting in rooms (laminated wood flooring in main room). Lighting in the room was inadequate. All rooms have direct outside access to the main parking area (no interior halls). Parking can fill up meaning having to park in a secured garage around the corner. Basic breakfast in a separate room with hard boiled eggs, bagels and waffles to be toasted, limited pastries, limited yogurt, a couple of cereal choices, automatic pancake machine, and juices. Good value for the price and location but nothing special.

I was in town for convention. Great walk to Convention Center each day and back. Great restaurants and entertainment within minutes or Uber around. Great price compared to the $300-$500 places.

The staff was very friendly, & the view was great!

Fantastic location for working downtown. The $16 parking fee allowed us to leave the car in the secured garage for the full day while we worked. The only downside was the lack of blankets or working heating in the room. Oh, and what sounded like an attempted murder in the next door room at 3am. This was eventually dealt with by hotel staff or the police with no shots fired.

The beds were ridiculously hard! You could feel the springs in the bed--no one slept well at all! Our room had water damage which was never repaired and was just really run down. We had 4 adults (which was clear on my reservation and when we checked in) and we had ONE body towel in our room! We asked for more the night we checked in and had to ask again in the morning--we still didn't have towels by 9 am. The phone in our room didn't work so we couldn't even call for towels--we had to walk down from the 3rd floor. Even after housekeeping "cleaned" our room, they still only left us one body towel!! What hotel does that?! The continental breakfast was terrible--literally just carbs, apples, and yogurt. Don't stay here! Pay the extra money to stay somewhere else!!

Room wasn't ready at check in, switched rooms 3 times, they had to replace the air conditioner while we were in the room trying to shower and relax from traveling, sheets had holes in them, tub didn't drain, shower head came to my forehead on a 5'7" person, definitely not worth $190 dollars for one night

Nice corner room. Love the fact that the hotel is dog friendly with no extra pet fee.

Staff very nice. Hotel is old, worn out and not very comfortable as far as location and comfort. Light in our room did not work and doors (front and bathroom) did not open well. Breakfast was not good! No protein and out of oatmeal packets and orange juice. No cream for coffee. An all white carbohydrate breakfast.

It was convenient to stay but, was not as clean as I wished it would be.

We Stayed overnight and it was a good place reasonably price hotel to sleep in and within walking distance to the harbor and gaslamp district. The room includes a breakfast but it was really nothing to write about.

cave like atmosphere

Window view to the right Right outside our back window

After waiting in line for 20 minutes we finally got into our room. It was cold as ice. I tried to adjust the temperature but the knob was broken off. Written in sharpie next to another knob was ON and OFF. It should have read FREEZING or SWEATING. The room phone was dead. The only seating besides the beds was an old desk chair with ratty arm rests. We made our reservations for 4 and only had 2 towels and 4 flat pillows. I had to walk to the office to request more. The woman at the desk acted like I was inconvecing her. When we came back from our day out I had to walk back to the office to ask for towels and pillows... again.

We had to keep the curtains closed at all times. it was as dark as a cave with dim fluorescent bulbs.
