Good value and helpful staff!

The hotel was very close to the airport and they provided a shuttle which added to the value of this stay. Bed was very comfortable, room was clean and several restaurants were within walking distance. Staff was very helpful and made you feel welcome!

Not sure why a staff was painting the walls at night. It left a funky smell in the hallway.

convenient and friendly

I was in San Diego for a graduation at the MCRD, and I chose well! The staff was super friendly, the room was spacious and comfortable and the breakfast was very satisfying. They had a free shuttle service that took me to the MCRD and picked me up, which I really appreciated since I had no idea where I was going! The only issue I had was that the (free) internet did cut out frequently while I was working.

Good location - easy to get around

Good location. Easy to get around to attractions. Pool is very small. Breakfast is weak. Not much selection. If you rent a car, get a GPS - it is worth the cost.

Good Value

My assessment is based on standard value hotels. Great place for families who are not fussy. The pluses - very good location across the street from the bay, water views, some very good restaurants within walking distance, good continental breakfast with omelet, pancakes, yogurt etc. and coffee in the lobby area. Beds are very comfortable, soft sheets and towels, microwave, refrigerator, hair dryer and ironing board. Average size rooms with balcony and wifi. W chose a city view room since we were attending a conference on our days there - very quiet corner room. The harbor side is noisier. The minuses - staff ranges from excellent to barely acceptable. The men at the front desk were very courteous but the female was barely welcoming. Rooms need thorough inspection for details - in our room the lock is such that the loop can prevent the door from locking when you leave your room and there is no cold water in from the sink but there is cold water in the shower. Overall excellent value for the money one pays for an inexpensive hotel . Hence the four stars.

Mitchell's seafood - not fancy but really good food and fair prices with harbor views. I almost decided not to provide this tip for fear the restaurant's line would get longer !!!

OK for a short stay

Stayed twice while traveling to and from Hawaii. First room on 2nd floor looked out over the small pool and street and it was quite noisy. The second room was 3rd floor and removed a bit from the street, so much better. This room had a slightly strange odor, like cleaning fluid or bleach - not bad but noticeable. Staff was very nice and helpful. Location is very convenient for simple dining - several good choices within walking distance. I would stay here again as the rooms were priced right.

Family reunion

I took my mother to visit with family members in town from Guam. We requested a non/smoking & ADA equipped room and received immediate satisfaction. Our room couldn't have been more convenient. The breakfast was ample and varied. The hotel is on a busy street but our room was insulated from the noise. The staff was polite and helpful. It was a terrific experience/ my 90 yr old mom was very comfortable. The pool provided entertainment for visiting relatives. Great value! Evans family.

Ok stay near the airport

This hotel was fine, but nothing more. Room was generally clean, but bathroom could have used more attention. I booked this room due to its location by the airport and price, as I was arriving late from a long trip. However, I discovered that there were other options for the same price that were far higher in quality. Additionally, this hotel is located on a busy street with very thin walls, so all traffic (car and foot) can be heard from the rooms.
