Great Location. Nice staff.Posted Nov 12, 2014
Hotel was in the great location, but near very busy street. It has clean room. They forgot to clean our room one night. TV remote did not work. The walls are very thin, so you can hear everything. Overall, not bad for inexpensive lodging.

Ok, for the pricePosted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: Convenient location to downtown Point Loma.
Cons: PARKING. Every staff member has a different set of rules for parking and gets mad at you if you break a rule that wasn't in place the day before.
Location: Close to downtown Point Loma and Shelter Island.
The room was clean and quiet. If you can, request a room in the back. The wifi signal is weaker, but the rooms are nicer, updated, and have a fridge/microwave/sink area. The housekeeping staff was friendly. The parking situation is an absolute nightmare and the rules seem to change every day. Over the phone, I was told I had to have a parking pass, which was $25. When I checked in two days later, I was told, "We don't use those anymore." I parked in the front spot, which was ok'd by one staff member. The next day, I was yelled at because "this isn't a parking spot!" and I had to move my car. The staff also encourages people to double-park, blocking other cars in. I had to leave at 5am, but was blocked in by another car, so I had to wake up a front-desk person, who then had to look through the files to figure out whose car was blocking me, wake them up, and then wait for them to move their car. So, I was late and frustrated.

A real dump!Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: Location. Other than that, nothing!
Cons: Housekeeping, management, and rooms.
Location: Close to charter fishing boats and not far from the airport.
The room was dirty. An empty plastic cup and a used crack pipe were on the floor next to the bed when I checked in. The microwave was so filthy that I refused to use it. It never got cleaned the whole week I was there. I was told I had to be out of the room one day by 10:00AM and to stay out all day because they were having the carpet cleaned. That evening when I returned the carpet was still very damp. The room had no phone! I had to prop a chair against the door at night to feel somewhat safe. I chose this hotel due to its convenient location, but never again.

Terrible Parking, Bad Customer Service, Good Spot.Posted Oct 8, 2014
Pros: Location- This hotel is close to the beach and Sea World.
Cons: Parking and Customer Service
Location: The location of this hotel is great! Sea World, the USS Midway Museum, and many different beaches are just a short drive away.
This hotel is in a good location but that is probably the only good thing about it. We got to the hotel late on a Thursday night. We went to check in and no one was there. We had to call someone and wait for them to come check us in. Everytime we had a question or problem, we would have to call and wait for someone to drive over because there was never anyone at the front desk. Parking is probably the biggest complaint I have about this hotel. Like I said, we got there late on a Thursday night. All the parking slots were full in their tiny parking lot. We were told to just double park. They had us write down which car was ours, so I figured they would come and get us if they needed us to move. Well one night, we had just gotten settled in to bed when we heard a knock on the door. We answered to a very upset hotel employee asking if it was our car that was double parked. She had been knocking on every door in the hotel. We told her yes, it was our car. She very rudely told us we needed to move. We apologized and tried to explain that the other employee told us to double park but she wouldn't even let us speak and interupted us every time. You would think that a hotel would at least have enought parking slots for the number of rooms they have.

Although I'd like to place it's clean, the people are nice. it doesn't have any insulation in the rooms so if someone Is trying to sleep and the people next-door up above you want to carry-on or have a party you pretty much know what they're doing.I like the fact that is close walking distance to a lot of different types of restaurants and fast food places.

We were messaged on our way there that our room had a water problem. They sent us to another place. It was very dated and had no water pressure. I let the first people know i was dissatisfied.

We liked it.Posted Sep 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
Only problem was when we arrived, we did not have a room because they had a plumbing problem and two rooms were flooded. They put us in the Vagabond Inn that is a partner hotel. It was OK, but not in an area we wanted to stay. Next day, we had a room for the rest of our stay (3nights) at the Pt Loma Inn. Not much else they could have done, but maybe a discount for the hassle of having to move. The staff was friendly and helpful, and while the room was a little small by US standards, I would recommend it.

Good for a dad visiting a son in collegePosted Sep 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
It was one of the cheapest hotels in the area. I wasn't expecting the Ritz, and I didn't get it. However, while the hotel was located on busy Rosecrans, I didn't really hear any street noise. My AC might have been drowning it out though. That said, the room is just feet from hotel parking, and people come in/out were easy to hear. I sleep with a pillow above/below my head any time I'm needing peace and quiet, and so had no issues. The interior is dated, and yet clean. I'm not bringing my wife here to impress her, but I'm sure she appreciated that I was frugal and safe. There was a safe, but it was locked. There were toiletries but no hair dryer. There was a water-proof TV-remote, and a bed that seemed like it should have been uncomfortable, but I had no problems with it. My aged body likes a pillow-top memory foam bed surface, and this didn't have it, but I was comfortable. The a.m. breakfast were those awful mini-muffins and some juice. If I ran the hotel, I'd splurge for the real deal, cut 'em in half, and see happier customers. I ended up going a block away to a great acai-bowl hole in the wall open for just the last 3 months. I would return here in the future, but mainly because it's convenient, pet friendly, and okay priced. I personally think the price should be lower, but given the comps, maybe it's appropriate. I'll still check out AirBnB next time, too.
