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.
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.
This place is perfect for an older people that just wantspeace and quiet and too be left alone
This place is for older people that want to be left alone. You have to buzz every time you want in an out so they can keep and eye on who comes in and out. The hallways are small the restrooms are small. But for the price you do pay for what you get.
Nice couple. Fantastic breakfast. Secure.
Curtains not black out. Not many channel choices on tv.
One of the warmest, friendliest, most confortable and nice hotels I stayed in! Owners are fantastic, so is their hotel, the rooms and the breakfast!
I loved 99% of everything. The awesome couple that restored this place live onsite. They do everything and have no employees. The doors are always locked and they answer the doorbell 24/7, which makes it nice because then they know who is there and there are no wild parties. The place is quiet and secure. But the best thing is the breakfast! I loved sitting outside in the open courtyard eating breakfast and taking in the warm weather (compared to Idaho in April). The couple is very friendly, whether it's helping with your luggage (totally unexpected) or giving tips of where to go. At check in they give you a packet which includes the history of the pier or whatever your room is named after. Overall, I was totally impressed by them and their kindness. I will stay here again.
I am use to sleeping on a tempurpedic mattress. I can usually handle a pillowtop. I have Lupus and Fibromyalgia among other things and was in more pain than usual in the morning. Of course the rooms are a little smaller that normal because the place was built in the 30's. I my opinion, the positives far outweigh the negatives.
Very nice people, 5 minutes from the mall, 20 mintues from beach food was good and room very clean
Lobby door was locked had to keep ringin bell to be let in. Which made me feel bad when i would go out and have to ring the bell at 3 in the morning.
The owner met us and showed us the room personally. That was good as there was a problem with the key. He also directed us to restaurants in the area. The bed was very comfortable, the bedding clean, and the room neat and clean. Great experience. Easy off the street parking ( free). Would recommend for location, historical interest, value, and comfort.
