Affordable We stayed here based on the price as we molded our trip around a flight, car, hotel all combined. Needless to say, we chose this Ramada to save a few extra bucks on our trip and while I have no real complaints, this place was just okay. The amenities on campus we're a bit mundane but still applicable ...

Great location The hotel rooms are smaller than normal. There is no gym or swimming pool. The hotel is beautiful and has a Victorian vibe. You can't beat the location you can walk anywhere in the gaslamp district.

Nice hotel, convenient location downtown.It's impossible to not have a great stay in San Diego. The Sofia was a positive experience overall. The room was a little small and parking as usual in downtown San Diego is problematic so if you don't find a space street level you pay quite a bit to use the facilities at the hotel. Having said that ...
