    Location is good and safe. rooms are clean and serviced properly. had no problem with internet connection. our first room had a connecting door to the next room like in any other hotel. the baby (probably not even a year old) next room had a built in breakfast alarm system to 4:30 in the morning:-))) the door did not help to sound proofing of the room. mother was very quick but we were all up. of course we did not "complain" since there is nothing to be done about the baby's feeding times. so hotel gave us another room immediately. we packed and left the hotel and when we came back our luggage was already in our new room. Staff is very helpful. I would like to thank specially to kristina alvares and heather for their help in delivering our "one drawer full of stuff" to our next stop in new york. definitely advice to everyone.

    renovated bathtubs will look better with this hotel's entire outlook. like in any downtown hotel, parking is problem. instead of 26$ may be 12 $ could be more reasonable. but hotel staff explained that parking facility is run by an independant firm to the hotel. so they can't do much about it.

    This hotel it is at the very center of San Diego, in front of Greyhound bus station, 5 minute walking to the restaurants area, the Horton Plaza, and the the seaside, it is behind the Civic Center, also close to The little Italy Area, Petco Park, but not so close to Balboa park., So its close to the major atractions of the city. Rooms are very comfortable. Well furnished,with all the comforts of this kind of hotel. There is Valet parking.

    Rooms were great, however lots of noise from the room next door. We called reception and they fixed it, luckily! Furthermore noice from the bus station outside, I had ear plugs, that was okay, so: do take these with you!

    Staff was great but my room was very dirty. Bathroom counters were not cleaned, tub did not have a traction liner (almost killed myself getting in shower), and it was loud as we were down town. Tv was smashed when I arrived. They fixed asap and were very friendly. Could be a great hotel with a little work but the cleanliness was an issue. Not a bad price however so I would suffer as a lone traveler again but I would not take my wife or kids until it was cleaner...

    Staff was great. Restaurant good and bar good.

    I booked this last minute and was really glad i did. The staff on arrival were fantastic and made me feel more than welcome. The room was very nice and clean and the hotel itself was nice. Location was great, walking distance to everything, without the noise of the gaslamp quarter. Over all, great hotel to stay at if looking to stay in San Diego city itself. The shopping centre around the corner was a bit of a let down though.

    There is nothing i can say bad about the hotel except that if you have a car, you have to pay extra per day to a valet company. But again this is the norm in most places these days.
