Loved the patio areas. Not so great having to park under the underpass.

The place is very clean and beautiful. The location is great for walking to local dining. The staff is very professional, very well trained, very well chosen and very personable. The continental breakfast is simple but of very high quality. They are bicycle-friendly and I was able to keep my bike in the room. The only downside of my visit was related to noisiness. My room overlooked the socializing patio and folks were out there having a great time until around 1 a.m. The toilet gurgled throughout the night. I could hear water constantly flowing through the plumbing in the walls (they may be using a hot water circulation system so that the rooms have immediate hot water). The a/c unit made a frequent clunking noise so I turned it off. However, it continued to make that weird noise throughout the night with it even being off. All of the noise issues could have been limited to this room and I was unfortunate in room assignment. I would definitely go back but would request their quietest room.

Perfect for our needs!

We loved this place! We stayed in a two bedroom suite, which is very clean and roomy. The place is quite old but very well kept. It's within walking distance of many cool attractions, restaurants and bars. There is no parking, so you do have to drive around and look for a spot where you can park overnight, but this wasn't too big of an issue for us. We were able to park under the freeway, and then, on the street overnight. We never could figure out how to have the fan on without having the light on with the remote, in our room. If we were staying another night, we would have asked how to make it work. The AC in the main room worked fine though. We would love to stay here again!

Best staff

The staff there is absolutely the best, super friendly and helpful. I love the feel of the hotel, it’s a fixed up older building but very clean and well taken care of. Also, the fact that it’s in the heart of Little Italy in San Diego is always fun.
