The 500 West Hotel is 100% smoke free property.

This historic hotel is located in Downtown San Diego, just blocks away from the San Diego Convention Center, shopping, San Diego Harbor, the Gaslamp District and public transportation. 500 West is a European style hotel (with detached private bathrooms) with a very unique blend of amenities at a very affordable rate. The hotel offers 259 rooms in a six story building. The hotel shares this renovated 1920 building with a full-service YMCA (minimal surcharge applies). Wireless internet through out the hotel, and a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner M-F.(Weekends is open till 7-am-2.00pm).

An urban European-style hotel with 259 contemporary guestrooms with detached private bathrooms, fitness center, cafe and lounge. Located in a national registered historic landmark building. 500 WEST is situated in the heart of Downtown San Diego. Adjacent to the San Diego Harbor 500 WEST is just blocks from Little Italy the historic Gaslamp entertainment district, Horton Plaza Mall, and Seaport Village. The San Diego Convention Center is a short walk from hotel. It is an ideal location for the independent savvy traveler and long term guests.

A recently completed multi-million dollar renovation has restored many of the beautiful features of this 1924 landmark building. As guests walk through the doors they are greeted with a sense of synergy and the feeling they have found a true inner city retreat. The living room style lobby is tastefully appointed with contemporary furnishings and is an ideal place for casual conversations. The warm lighting certainly sets the mood with a unique design that allows guest to meet fellow travelers and discuss the days events or where to go in the evening. On the rare cool night in San Diego cozy up in front of fireplace on a large ottoman- one of the many nooks guests can enjoy.

When its time to retire guest will find themselves in rooms with sleek- modern furniture that combine European style and affordability. The simple crisp palette of colors and materials soothe the senses- enhanced by the fragrant light breezes from the San Diego Bay. Guests fall softly to sleep on pillow-top mattresses and custom linens. Each 500 WEST guest room is tastefully furnished with flat-screen televisions, internet access and imported platform beds. Individual shared bathroom is fitted with every amenity and complimentary toiletries.

A stay at 500 WEST will refresh the budget-minded world traveler. As an independently owned and operated property it provide the guests with exceptional service and value. Its an exciting one-of-a-kind California experience.

avoid this place

More like a hostel. Filthy carpets. Lift looks 1980s and indeed was broken down the next day. Small dusty room with no washing basin and shared bathroom. Shower is pathetic at maximum flow and temperature. Only thin blanket and bed sheet provided. Room was very cold at night. The building is large and solid but the hotel sadly does not live up to its great location...on Broadway with walking access to the marina, little Italy and Gaslamp quarter. Some big corporation please buy over this place for the sake of tourists visiting beautiful San Diego!

I was not aware that there would be no air conditioning and that there was no bathroom located in the room. There was no information stating otherwise.

don't go there

I paid $90 for the room and it felt more like if it was a place where bums go to stay. We didn't even last 10min when I just found a different hotel that cost me $20 more and was 100 times better

This isnt a hotel

Buyer beware, this isnt a hotel, its a hostel. The building is ancient, the communal bathrooms were dirty & more often than not lacked toilet paper. Horrible experience overall

High cost performance

The location is in Down town, and very convenient for travelling in San Diego. The room is small but the price is the cheapest in that area.
