Shuttle service and quiet sleep
location/run down a bit
Location is good. Good breakfast with many options (fresh fruits, cereals, sausage, egg, yogurt, pancake, etc). Happy hours from sunday to thursday with free wine, snacks.
Bathroom is very small. Air conditioning is very loud. Parking is small, better to have a small car not to scratch it.
Room was clean & comfortable . Breakfast was ok.
Not many restaurants within walking distance. Very tight parking garage. It was only a couple dollars so why complain but I didn't like paying for a safe I didn't need. Not much within walking distance .
Close to down town Good breakfast Free shuttle to zoo
Expensive parking Not the cheapest hotel
- Room is spacious and clean. Bed is comfortable, and both firm and soft pillows are available to cater to everyone's preference. The hotel is well maintained. - Staff is helpful and friendly - Free shuttle is available to/from airport, Balboa Park, zoo and the harbour. Driver is punctual and this is a great service to help guest explore the city even more efficiently. - Complimentary lemonade and chilled water at the entrance. (Also, has complimentary drinks during happy hour) - Free wifi and had no problem with connection - Free breakfast that offers a good selection of food. (Love the pancake maker!) - Lovely view of the city from hotel - ATM machine and computers are available at the lobby - Across the street from an amazing cafe (Sole Luna Cafe) and about 20 minutes walk to Gaslamp Quarters - Reasonably priced (as long as it's not during peak time e.g. Comic Con weekend)
Front desk staff in the day time
One member of night staff rude and offhand had an attitude problem
This hotel was in a great location... A perfect "home base" for our San Diego excursions. The friendly staff was extremely accommodating . Loved our stay with y'all !!
The only thing I could add would be is a mini microwave in the room... We would go out to eat and have some leftover food that we might like to snack on later that evening... And I would have to go to the lobby to heat things up ... But that is not a complaint by any means... Just being lazy... Lol
The location was great. They had a free shuttle service to and from the airport, as well as to and from the zoo. The staff were polite and very helpful.
Rooms were very quiet, clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and breakfast was enjoyable.
Finding hotel was problematic. Parking was challenging, as we had a SUV, and the attendant parked us, but hardly any room on side of vehicle to get out.
I liked the layout of the room and the free breakfast.
They did not mention that parking at their place cost $16/day on the web. On street parking shouldn't count as free parking because they are not belong to the hotel. They posted free parking but actually it wasn't free.
the room was spacious and just the right size. Staff was always friendly and helpful. Walking distance to middle of downtown and harbor.
The tv was only in the sitting area so you couldn't see it from the bedroom.
The parking lot is too narrow
Very clean, and at a great location. Everything is at a walking distance. Service was great and staff very courteous.
Fair price, good location for the money
Building is getting aged
swimming pool is small, the website pictures are very deceiving
excellent location and good facilities
How wonderful the staff were considering we arrived through the night. The courtesy bus made it so much easier. Everyone was very helpful
The bedding is really comfortable.
Living in Switzerland, I might have quite high standards on cleanliness. The fact that I could find some hair in my bathroom, or even once a dirty dust-cloth forgotten on my night stand, is really upsetting to me.
The vending machine didn't work and the one that did ripped me off for 2.50
Close to downtown and free shuttle service
The parking lot is very narrow and very stressful to park
bad WiFi connector, especially night from 9:00PM ~ 12:00PM
I didn't like the breakfast with only plastic dishes, cups and cutlery
It was great being close to everything. The breakfast was delicious.
The wifi was spotty
Loved that it was within walking distance of so much! Covered parking lot with plenty of spots for a little extra was well worth it.
The staff, specifically Kristen, was do awesome!! Thanks for doing your best to accommodate us and make us feel comfortable during our stay!! :)
Only issue was the bathrooms were pretty small but they were still very clean and updated nicely.
