  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

Hotel rooms need to be updated. Carpet is old and room smelled muggy. Front desk service was average. No one went out of their way to welcome us or ask us how are stay was after check out. only thing good was the location.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Prime location in the heart of San Diego. Pretty good hotel if you're on a budget. Nothing spectacular but also not run down and gross. There was plenty of metered parking (free at night) on the surrounding blocks if you want to avoid the $21 parking fee.
