Lovely location in downtown, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel and stay again. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

It's close proximity to everything essential in downtown San Diego. The decor was really upbeat and fun. Very spacious and the bed's were super comfortable.

This place was great! The lobby was very nice, check in was a snap, and the staff was so friendly. The room was squeaky clean, tv was huge, the decor was nice, I had a big window in my room, and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Did I mention they had little candies every where - made the little kid in my squee a little! I’ll definitely be staying here again!

Great stay. Hotel was very clean and staff was very attentive. Located a few blocks from the Gaslamp Quarter and a short walk to the Coronado ferry. Room had hardwood floors and everything appeared to be pretty new.

The hotel staff were very welcoming every time I came in or out of the building. After check in they called to make sure we were doing well. When we mentioned an issue with the cable, 2 people came up immediately to fix the problem, The room was smaller than I imagined from the pictures but enough space for me and my guest. We also had a pretty good view. The hotel was close enough and far away enough to the Gaslamp Quarter. There are tons of popular banks in the area as well which is super helpful.

The front desk staff was very professional and friendly. I also like the old fashion design the hotel.

Great hotel for exploring San Diego. Note that while breakfast is offered free - it is not a hot breakfast with sausage, biscuits, gravy etc.

Nice hotel location and staff! Would love to be back and stay in the hotel. Will surely recommend!

Nice independent downtown hotel, close to trolley and bus to airport. Room was spacious and comfortable, faced street - noise was not a problem, even though hotel provided earplugs. This was a good place to explore San Diego from over an extended weekend. I happened to stay during the weekend of December Nights (definitely recommended) - it was a reasonable walk to the 5th & Ash pickup location for the shuttle buses to Balboa Park.

Pleasantly surprised with how great our experience was, the rooms are unique and eclectic. The bed was really comfortable and the location was ideal, walking distance to Gaslamp and felt like it was a pretty safe area. My wife loved the vanity mirror set up outside the bathroom. There was also a free continental breakfast that wasn't bad.. Service was great. Will definitely consider Bristol again if we go to SD.

Located ideally for visiting the SD Civic Theater. We were pleased with every aspect of the hotel, everything was clean and the rooms were large and well furnished. In addition, there were plenty of electrical outlets and modern amenities.

Room was nice. Continental breakfast was pretty decent and the have a complimentary espresso machine in the morning. Only compliant is that one of the water glasses was not clean and still had lipstick on it.

The hotel was conveniently located, the room was clean and felt new, the staff was very nice, the gym was adequate - overall a good experience

Nice hotel good breakfast enjoyed my stay would definitely stay again

I plan on returning to stay here again. Love the staff and love the area

Hotel was very nice. Exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect since we wanted to be close to everything but not too close to where we could hear all the activities.

Asked for wake up call. It never happened. $39 to park. Really?

Close to everything, bus, airport, grocery store,close to beach. Close to everything
