Was very surprised how nice the hotel was very professional and easy check in process

Easy check in process. Very fast service. Room service was awesome and fast

My lovely place in San Diego! The perfect balance of price and quality. Unlike several other hotels in this city this place is fully 4 star compliant.

The service is the worst I have ever experienced. The concierge was the only competent one in the hotel. We had to wait for ice for two to three hours when after ordered or call two time to have them come up. Had to call to have room cleaned every day at 4:00 after being out all day. I have traveled around the to many different countries, islands and different types of hotels and this was the only negative comment I have ever written. If we had not payed up front we would have left.

Loved loved loved this hotel. It is right in the heart of San Diego and in walking distance to restaurants and the Gaslamp. Beautiful hotel. Very cleaned and staff was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be staying at this Hotel next time I visit San Diego. Beautiful!!!!

I've written reviews before so will keep this short because the fact I keep coming back says a lot. Great hotel, nice amenities, friendly staff, good location with access to public transportation

The hot water was off for the whole day and all the hotel did was offer a free drink at the bar.. then the next night they had a homecoming at the pool that went on tell 11 o'clock you would think that when the preservation was made they would make you aware of this..

Not easy entering the hotel from the outside. Most doors closed or blocked.

Love the old style hotel. Close to everything food, beaches, and the museums. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Staff were very friendly, location was great, bedroom was spacious, gym was nice and it was a great deal that we got. Negatives: pool was too cold and bedroom doors were hard to open (weird thing to make a note about but you will understand if you stayed there). Overall it was good and we would stay there again.

Loved the staff and the place is very classy and clean. Didn’t like the $20/day amenities fee. Pricey for no more than you get, but that is San Diego in general.

THIS PLACE IS OLD AND OUTDATED WALLPAPER IS LIFTING WALLS ARE PAPER THIN IT NEEDS A REVAMP WIRES AND CREEPINESS SICKING OUT THE WALLS IN THE BATHROOM "HOLE IN THE WALL" NOT WORTH THE $ DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND JUST STAY AT THE HYATT OR SOMETHING

Have to pay 40 a day for parking. That was crazy if you are staying there you should get to park for free
