Score from 488 reviews Very good
There was some typical for motels (but unpleasant) smell in the room when we arrived, so we had to open the window to get some fresh air.
Amazing breakfast. Easy to reach location. Very nice and friendly owners.
Lack of tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
Clean and tidy though compact rooms, Breakfast was nice and the banana bread was excellent.
This place is the first I'll look for next time I need a hotel in the area
Room a little small, but understandable being it was built in 1930
People that ran the place and history of the place
Pei and his wife are the friendliest people. They are so hospitable and obliging even for those who aren't staying at El Primero. The breakfast was delicious and they really took care of their customers.
Wonderful family run feeling. Easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, and park.
smell so bad
Door from street into hotel lobby always locked, which while safe, it was necessary to ring an intercom to gain entrance. It would be nice if room keycard could open door. A minor complaint.
Small, friendly hotel. Innkeeper are helpful and accommodating. Located in a safe downtown area short drive to airport. Clean, comfortable rooms.
Same breakfast was served multiple days. Need to get down early for full variety and to make sure it is warm. Because of the caring of the inkeepers I am sure if I had asked they would have heated the food but it was lukewarm when I went the last half hour.
Inkeepers are kind and attentive. They make you feel like they are glad you are there and try to accomodate your needs. Older rooms but immaculately clean and beds are comfortable, My bathroom had been updated. Met people from around the world. If you want conversation with others it is available if you do not, thats okay too, Will stay here again when visiting San Diego
Free parking place is more important than place for self-driving travelling. The hotel is nice and warm. My husband and I felt comfortable. My husband loves breakfast very much.
Not being able to get into the hotel without the owner opening the door for us, great security but difficult if you want to stay out late?
I've always wanted to try this place since last summer because it sounded terrific and it's beyond terrific! My husband and I had a wonderful time; the breakfast, the room, courtyard and bed were all great. Great location too!
All was good!
Staff, clean, location, good restaurants close by
The owners are great and really go out of their way to make folks feel welcome and see to their needs.
Having to buzz to get someone to open the front door upon return every time someone goes out.
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.
street noise of bus stop
great part of town
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 only thing I didn't like was when I was showering the water changed from warm to very hot the cold.
The staff was wonderful friendly and very helpful, I'm moving to the area and they were very informative.
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.
It is a little bit older since it's a restored facility.
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.
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.
