Really Nice!

Posted Sep 6, 2014
Pros: Cheap Valet, Nice Rooms, Great View and AAA location
Cons: nothing
Location: Great downtown location and close to public transportation, Gas Lamp. Petco Stadium
Great little hotel close to public rail service for easy transportation without having to drive, Clean rooms and a great staff. Front desk girls first day on the job and took good care of me and my wife. Great view of the ocean from our room! She rocks!!! Cheapest overnight Valet Service downtown. Most hotles are 40 dollars a night. GM left his card on my nightstand for commits or concerns. Great Price for a downtown hotel. I'd stay there again.

Dear Christopher, Thank you for your accolades and we appreciate your mention of the exceptional service provided by our staff. I will be sure to pass your kind comments along to Cristina- she does ROCK! As you pointed out, the Trolley is directly around the corner and it will take you to the Gaslamp Quarter, Convention Center, Petco Park, the waterfront and the USS Midway. I am glad you found our guestrooms to be clean and spacious and our valet service to be reasonably priced as compared to other parking options in the area. On behalf of the Bristol Team, thank you for selecting the Bristol Hotel. Yours truly, Gregory T. Rizzi General Manager Bristol Hotel

Fair hotel

If you are looking for a couple nights on SD this may work. Under 175 is a good deal.
