    Great getaway

    From the front desk clerk to the housekeeping staff everyone was wonderful. They were courteous and helpful, meeting every need we had. The hotel is in a perfect location within 5 miles of most San Diego attractions. It's an older hotel but has been refurbished and is very comfortable. Definitely "our" hotel for any San Diego visits in the future.

    Decent

    Well, the location was perfect for me, and for the time of year the cost was acceptable. The room left a little to be desired though. The mini fridge was very loud and ran all the time. The air conditioner would not regulate. It was freezing and could not be shut off, so I had to plug it in when the room was warm and unplug it when it was cold. Also, the filter may need to be changed because it had a slight urine odor. The bathroom door doesn't slide with ease. I had to prop my foot on the wall to pull it closed and when closed there was still a gap. Good thing I didn't have anyone staying with me. The parking was pretty bad too. I didn't get back until around 10pm and the security directed me to park in a non-parking spot. In the morning I arrived at my car with a note calling me a profanity for parking there. I know that isn't something you can control, but it wasn't pleasant as I had parked where instructed. Overall, the stay was OK.

    Short stay get away

    The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was ok. Bed linens were clean, the carpet needed to be cleaned and the shower tile had mold around the base, a little bleach would go a long way to make it a better room.

    Would recommend purchasing a bus pass that also works for the light rail to get around San Diego, much less expensive that renting a car.

    so so hotel, awesome staff, perfect location

    Since I planned to, (and was) all over the San Diego area I needed something affordable, centrally located and not gross….this hotel was exactly that and nothing more. Room was a decent size with microwave, mini fridge, and thermostat. Bathroom was a little "rough" (sliding door with broken lock, disgustingly dirty ceiling light, and you had no control over the fan…if the light was on, the fan was running…which wouldn't be a big deal accept the entire hotel is absolutely hollow. People complain about thin walls….I could hear the neighbor's iPhone next door getting emails!! wow. Luckily everyone in the hotel seemed to notice the thin walls and were very courteous and quite throughout my stay. The saving grace for this place was the employees; every single person wearing a uniform was smiling, said, "good morning", they let me check in 3 hours early with no questions asked….heck the manager even found my hat and sweatshirt that I carelessly left sitting around! I rented a bike for the week that drops it off and picks it up…well the manager of this hotel even let me leave the bike in their storage area for the guy to pick up so I didn't have to wait, wow, serious customer service. I want to say I would for sure stay again, but I just know if I ended up here and had loud neighbors it would be truly unbearable…so 3 stars it is.

    Hotel is conveniently located, central to downtown San Diego and La Jolla. Even though it was next to a major interstate it was fairly quiet. Amenities included the usual (TV, microwave, small fridge, coffee maker, hair dryer, iron, etc.), the only thing that was lacking was their claimed "high speed internet". The internet speed was so bare minimal that I took minutes to pull up basic websites. Staff was courteous and friendly. Free parking was an added plus. Overall a basic hotel that is nicely furnished and maintained, making it a great choice for people who travel with lower budgets!

    Value for money

    I picked this hotel after reading the reviews. Thanks. The hotel is in good location, close to airport and other sightseeing attractions. Room is spacious. Freeway that others complaint about is not an issue where we are staying. The only complaint I had was my next door neighbor - they slammed the door late at night, not very considerate. I will go back there. Parking is close to the room. Very convenient.
