Hotel had a smell that was not desirable. It was difficult to get luggage in and out of hotel. Staff was great.

Great Hotel! Stayed one night prior to cruise. Front desk staff was outstanding helping us with all our special requests. Room was clean and quiet. Good location everything is in walking distance. Used the hotel shuttle to take us to the ship which worked out well. Definitely will use this hotel on our next trip to San Diego.

The hotel was in a great location, very close to the airport. We used their shuttle service back & forth to the baseball game which worked out perfectly. The continental breakfast was great too.

Stayed here for Labor Day weekend 2013 and had a blast! We booked the 2 bedroom suite and it was perfect for us. We had 4 in our party (two married couples) but it could have accommodated two more easily with the pull out couch in the common area. Although we didn't really use any of it, the room had a kitchen complete with stove, sink, oven, full size fridge and dining table for 4. This would be a great place to book for extended stays! We were a little concerned with the train tracks located right behind the hotel but couldn't hear a thing! (This might be different if you are put in a room located all the way to the back of the hotel) We were located at the very back but not on the train track side. Also, the staff here is among the best I have ever encountered. They are all very friendly and accommodating. One down side is the parking fee of $14/night but they do make up for it with the shuttle! We were picked up/dropped off at several locations during our stay so basically evened out because we saved on parking fees. All in all it was a fabulous stay and we would love to stay here again!

Very clean, friendly staff, great location ..reasonably priced.

We had flown in from Texas and had lots of time before we could check in, but since we were so tired we asked if we could possibly check in early. They found an open room and let us go in. The room was clean and the continental breakfast was good also. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Nice staff and clean hotel with a well-conditioned kitchen. House keeping was so good. We can have some snacks, light meals and beverages at so-called "the happy hour" in the evening on Mon.-Fri. But there is a little problem with the noise in the midnight due to ships' hooter from the bay.

Breakfast & service was excellent! Location very good, handy to all places we wanted to go without a car. They provide shuttle service as well.
