Some Staffs are unfriendly. Not hospitable. Never ready to direct even first timers to the facility. You are given a key to proceed to your room on arrival without anyone taki g you there.
More accommodating staffs.
great room with all the facilities good breakfast great value for money
Hard to say
Very loud A/C, planes were landing on San Diego airport just over our roof, far away from trolley, very small room, unpleasant and un helpful staff, poor breakfast (bread like a stone)
Location was great and the price was even better.
Staff was friendly Moved me to another room when I asked Good location for going out (15-20 mins on foot)
Ground floor rooms are terrible (cockroaches in the bathroom) Weird smell in the rooms Feels old
Close to Down town
The staff went above and beyond to help me out. I was travelling alone and did not have a car.The staff printed out directions from Google maps for me to help me get to my destinations.They also extended my check out time so I had enough time to go to the beach and come back on my last day there.Lastly, one of the staff members helped me carry my bags to my room when I checked in.
The area is very noisy.You can here planes and traffic all through the night. The location of the hotel was also a bit off putting as there many homeless people on the street.
The staff was very helpful and kind when we had the issues with the door luck.
WiFi wasn't the best and also for our room the air conditioning was literally next to the bed and blows on you all night if you have it on.
I like, e complete the room. Good decor. The check in was little rough, unfriendly.
The fact that I reserved a queen room and the bed that myself my husband and our less than 1 year old infant had to sleep in was far from a queen size. Since that is what we comfortably sleep in at home and that bed had barely enough room for my husband and infant. There was barely enough walking space between the bed and air conditioner that had to blow directly in the face of the person sleeping beside it. The breakfast food was stale and inadequate for the advertisement of breakfast. I will prefer my truck to this hotel ever in the future! And for $100 you have got to be kidding me!!!!
Location was convenient- just a 10 minute walk to The Gaslamp District. Very good breakfast and amenities in the hotel.
Staff were quite dismissive and could have been friendlier. No parking provided however you can pay a few in the surrounding public car parks. Room very small compared to the rooms we stayed in other inns at roughly the same price
I liked the location, comfort, and free breakfast.
The shower had only cold water.
Tiny, but quite comfortable room.
A little bit far to the downtown - about 30min by walking.
no parking on site
everything else-poor in all areas except as stated The owners must have been doing their own ratings-This is at best a 2 or 3 on a 10 scale rating system
bad location,too small bad and room
Great customer service and nicely decorated room rooms.
Not much room around the bed
Kitchenette with microwave and fridge, A/C, gym. A park in the center of the hotel. Free continental breakfast every morning. Walking distance to Gaslamp District and Balboa Park (San Diego Zoo).
Street parking is limited but across the street is a pay parking if you prefer.
The room was clean. There was always someone at the front desk. It had all amenities I would need. The TV had more channels than some of the more expensive hotels.
The room was clean and the breakfast was ok for on the go people.
Parking is very hard it limits the activities. Even paid parking are not enough.
The rooms have a fridge and microwave. The location was excellent for us. The staff was very helpful. The rooms in the same building as the check in desk are the rooms you want. The building to the left is a dump.
They had given away our room. We were booked for a queen and gave us a full. The overnight staff lied to us and told us it was a maintenance issue. The day staff told us they had booked our room. We were moved after the first night. The first room in the building to the left of the check in desk was a dump, complete with a plastic sheet on the mattress. The rooms in the same building as the front desk are where you want to be.
I like the Fridge, Microwave and Sink in the room. Room was clean. Also i can use the Elevator to upper floors.
Room is very small, no space on the Desk. No Parking.
I like the attitude of the guy who had to come mop up the water in the bathroom when the drainage on the wheelchair accessible shower flooded the bathroom. Not sure why we were given this room because we did not request special accessibility.
The room was very small although the bathroom shower was wheelchair accessible. The room was not very clean and after the refrigerator had to be turned on we found a live roach inside. I was charged for breakfast although when I booked the room I declined the breakfast. The hotel does not have parking all they could offer was to park on the streets where the meters had to be fed every 30 minutes except on Sundays. I cut my stay short to one night instead of 3.
Great deal for the price
Very small room, no parking, breakfast was crowded.
