Staff, clean, location, good restaurants close by
All was good!
The owners are great and really go out of their way to make folks feel welcome and see to their needs.
Vintage and charming. Not a large chain so nice to be able to support small business. Very much enjoyed our stay! It's old so a bit quirky but for us that is part of the charm. Breakfast was good too.
Having to buzz to get someone to open the front door upon return every time someone goes out.
great part of town
street noise of bus stop
We felt very safe and enjoyed our stay very much. It was quiet and so comfortable. We specially liked that the hotel lobby doors were locked at night. The breakfast was very tasty and the eating area was so nice.
I liked the convenience of the location. The staff are great.
The staff was wonderful friendly and very helpful, I'm moving to the area and they were very informative.
The only thing I didn't like was when I was showering the water changed from warm to very hot the cold.
Quiet and comfortable rooms. Excellent staff that engages with guests and who are very responsive to any needs. Great breakfast! Safe and secure facility. Convenient location for the San Diego area.
Owners were incredible and kind. Breakfast was delicious. Incredible value for dollar spent in the area.
The staff is very friendly and accommodating for this little bed and breakfast that's within striking distance of the local attractions- not too far away from anything.
It is a little bit older since it's a restored facility.
I was warned that Chula Vista was too far off the beaten track - if someone tells you that, ignore them. Chula Vista is a small, sleepy, charming little southern California town and the peaceful Inn matches that atmosphere perfectly. The contrast with hectic, tourist-packed Old Town couldn't be greater. I had appointments in San Diego and there was no problem getting there on time. The innkeepers are charming as well as kind and helpful. Their breakfast mango and papaya were an unexpected treat. Speaking of food, there are some very good local restaurants - for unusualness, a Mexican/Thai taqueria stands out, and for simply fabulous food and service you can't beat Italianissimo, just a couple of blocks down the street. If I have a chance I'll definitely be back again!
We spent two nights at this charming little B&B and were/are more than pleased with our decision. Personal service and hospitality were top, it is obvious that customer service is a main concern here. The rooms were well maintained, clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the breakfast which had a little bit of everything for everybods, loads of fresh fruit and was way more appealling than what you get in the big chain hotels!! We would consider coming back here again of not on a self-catering base and definitely can recommend a stay here to everyone.
Hospitality and the morning breakfast.
very friendly proprietor perfect location as nowhere very far from hotel. sitting outside for breakfast enabled guests to mingle
the room was just a little too small. also lacked coffee making facilities and fridge
The owners and staffs were very wonderful and very helpful.Complimentary breakfast was great. Nice that the history of the hotel is preserved. Very quiet place and comfortable.
Because it is an old building ,the doors and bed are squeaky sometimes.
Mainly the staff. I felt welcome and safe. Very quiet and peaceful.
Not to much to do or see in the surrounding area.
I like how polite and upbeat the staff were. They were very helpful, telling us where the closest shops and restaurants were. :) The bed was extremely comfortable, and the sheets smelled clean. The room was very cute!
I didn't like how the shower drain in my room was so full of hair, that I was practically drowning. That my mirror had tooth paste splatter on it once we got in, but after the maid had cleaned the room, at least that was clean. And they don't seem to notice the dust on the window sills.
El Primero is a family affair, run by very warm and welcoming people. I liked that they have off-road parking, but you can step off the 929 bus from downtown San Diego (39 minutes) outside their front door. Comfortable bed, great breakfast (to which my son was invited; he lived in the neighborhood), good conversations. If you want personal service, this place is for you. I'm a sucker for 1930's architecture, restored to its former glory, as well. Great value for money. I will be coming back.
The owners are wonderfully friendly people and we had a great conversation over morning coffee - we liked the simple elegance of the decor as well as the historic theme with the rooms. We stayed in the Horton Plaza room with a private bathroom and the beds are so comfy, we highly recommend this B&B!!!
That we didn't stay two nights :) we were in town for the last performance of a play that a friend co-produced and were in Chula Vista for one night only.
Great breakfast. Very nice and friendly hosts. Parking lots next to the building.
Pie, the owner, and his wife are lovely!
Awesome hospitality! Breakfast was good. Quaint. Excellent customer service all around.
Rooms are small due to it being an older building. Have to buzz for re-entry in the lobby. Not bad for safety, but you just feel bad after a long night out.
Hotel review indicated 'gourmet' breakfast. The breakfast was certainly not gourmet...
Excellent all around, Pi and his wife made us feel very comfortable..Superbly maintained property..Wish I didn't have to buzz him late nights to let us in though...Lobby door is locked most of the time.
The owners were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was fabulous. I didn't mind ringing the bell to be let in, it gave me a sense of complete security. The room was great, I loved the sense of history they've highlighted by naming the rooms and adding historic photos and background information. Everything was spotlessly clean.
