Being in San Diego

The location is very central and gives you a unique San Diego experience without the feeling of being in a chain hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. Although I've heard this can be a party hotel, that was not my experience (maybe because I stayed in the middle of the week and not a weekend). Great value for the money.

Bathrooms can use an upgrade. Stay away from rooms next to garage.
Great staff. Helpful and professional. Nice decor of hotel and rooms.

I did not like being put in a room by the pool party area. There was loud vulgar music playing. When we go moved we were put in room 250 over the improv club. The noise was so loud.
I love the pool and the location

Some parts of the Hotel are tired but they have been renovating so it wont be an issue for long.
Lots of personal service and comfortable bed. Close to key attractions like the Zoo and is relatively close to the CBD.

The kids room was next to the door instead of the master. The floors were dirty so my daughters feet were black after walking around for 15 minutes. People were smoking by the pool so I couldn't stay by the pool long with my daughter. The drain in the kids bath wasn't working properly. My husband killed two cockroaches in the bathroom on our last day.
The lobby was very nice and the pool is beautiful. The family suit had the perfect amount of space and having a second bathroom was fantastic.

Front desk was so helpful and friendly in giving suggestions on dinner and nightlife options in the area. We were able to walk to dinner and enjoy a few local bars then take a short uber ride back at night. The breakfast at Hope 46 was delicious and just what we needed before a long day at the zoo. I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay with history, in a great location and with great staff.

Staff smoking by the parking lot. Had to walk by and inhale the smoke to get to the car.
I usually stay at a Hilton property. This was a nice stay. Hotel had character and was something different.

Nothing to complain about.
This Hotel does not disappoint! Great location, incredible rate, and just the right size!!

The walls on so thin that if you have neighbors you can pretty much hear everything!
Love the location. It's perfect for what we needed.

The bar and kitchen staff, although serving up some great cocktails, has to pull it together. The level of hospitality doesn't live up to its price point. Management did step in and comp a few items. That was nice. Just needs to be organized better and the staff needs to learn a bit more about what it means to be hospitable.
The hotel is comfortable, clean and has a great story behind it. Great location.

The clean rooms and comfortable beds were wonderful. I also loved the vintage photographs. There is a lovely patio that overlooks the pool area. It is a lovely place to sip on your morning coffee. I highly recommend this hotel. It is also reasonably priced.

I liked everything! I was there for a work party and felt it best to just stay the night and I'm very glad I did! Classic, timeless and very cozy!

I was disappointed that the pool didn't seem to be heated. The restaurant service was very slow one evening, but the food was worth the wait.
The decor is very interesting with some real uniqueness. The pool sits in a courtyard that is pleasant and even more so with the lighting. The restaurant food was of good quality and the bar was interesting. The food is inventive and unique and the breakfast hearty and generous.

The room was very big and nicely decorated. The bed was super comfy and the location was so conveniently located from all the main attractions of San Diego.
