Pantai Inn

"Not on the beach"
It is beside a park and across the street from the beach. So you get some traffic and noise from street and park. But it was not a big distraction. Overall we were very pleased and plan on returning to this "boutique" hotel. Wonderful breakfast every morning.

Hercor Hotel - Urban Boutique

692 H Street, Chula Vista - Map
"Clean, safe, and convenient"
I stayed in a duration of three nights. Overall, I have no complaints. The breakfast they provided was okay. It was pretty decent and straight-forward. They served hash-browns, eggs, bacon, bread, small bagels, variety of cereal, and yogurt. 3 out of 5 The location is convenient. It's right next to a seven-eleven, across a gasoline station, and near the 5. I would say that it was not that bad at all. I even noticed police officers casually walking the side streets at 10 pm. However, I would recommend to take the front parking lot since it's more secured than the back. 4 out of 5 The noise level around me was a 4 out of 10. It was inevitable to hear people crossing your room, but other than that I was not disturbed by a snoring neighbor or what-so-ever. 5 out of 5 The bed and pillows were really soft. You'll like it, if you prefer that. Room space was decent. It wasn't huge, but I had no trouble walking around. The bathroom was pretty big and clean. Actually, the whole room was clean and there were switches for your lights at the door and near the bed. If you're concerned about getting up to turn off certain lights. 5 out of 5 Lastly the staff were amazing. I met three receptionists that were working there and I would say that they were really helpful. I had 2 separate bookings for this hotel and they were really helpful fixing it up. 5 out of 5. So overall, I would recommend staying here. I had a blast.

Palomar San Diego, a Kimpton Hotel

1047 5th Ave, San Diego - Map
"Fabulous stay in the Gas Light District"
We had a wonderful stay at the Palomar San Diego. The rooms were clean and modern, yet comfortable. A great stay for a romantic weekend. The only complaint about the room would be the lack of a shower door (a cool modern look, but makes for a chilly shower. We loved all of the features that the Palomar offered, including the free bike rentals. The staff was impeccable; all were very attentive, friendly and super helpful. I highly recommend staying at the Palomar San Diego. It will not disappoint.

"Golden nugget of JOY!"
If you're looking for an intimate, funky, relaxed place to stay then this is it!!! You feel so welcome the minute you walk in, the decor, the vibe, the entire place is just beyond awesome. We LOVED IT! It's retro and hip without trying too hard, the food is superb and I would recommend in a heart beat. The only thing I would FYI is there isn't really parking onsite, but you can park on the streets around it for free no problems!

W San Diego

421 W B St, San Diego - Map
"Great location Downtown!"
In town to catch a ballgame, The W was the perfect choice. It is within walking distance of Petco Park (about 20 minutes) and an easy drive to Seaport Village. The room is clean and well appointed with many choices from the "honor bar." The staff is friendly and efficient and the lounge downstairs has a good selection of food and beverages. Coffee service in the morning, but no complimentary breakfast. Valet parking rates are steep but well worth the price for the convenience.
