Great location, charming hotel, friendly staffPerfect locale. Walk anywhere or take the train. Charming boutique hotel two blocks from the Gaslamp and a short walk to the water. Comfy rooms give you just enough space to work and sleep (all we were looking to do). Highly recommend. Would happily stay here again!

Walking distance to Balboa Theater and plenty of nightlife made it perfect for my purposes, but it will get noisy at night as a result! Hotel staff was really friendly and upgraded my room for free.

When the shuttle pulled up the front desk clerk came out,before I even had my bags out of the van,and let the driver know that she had the payment voucher. Check-in was easy and quick. The room ...

Great hotel, convenient location, amazing staffThis is a really nice hotel. It's a little dated but in a good way, it was an old world charm. The staff is super nice and friendly and helpful. It's well priced and the location is convenient if but its on the outskirts of the Gaslamp so there isn't much in the surrounding couple blocks.

Wonderful hotel close to Little ItalyWe arrived about 8;30 AM and were allowed to check in early. The young man at the front desk checked us in for our next days plane and printed our boarding passes. He also gave us the name of a great restaurant for dinner. Would recommend to anyone.
