"Large comfortable rooms and sea air"
I selected this hotel for the large rooms, sea air and short walk from parking to room. The entire weekend was rainy but we didn't care. We enjoyed the comforts of the hotel room, the restaurant and bar for Monday Night football. Between storms we visited the sites in San Diego bay and the Old Town area. A very relaxing visit.

"Off season stay"
All in all the hotel was very nice, clean and extraordinary quiet for a beach hotel. Even when the drunk guest knocked on random doors they removed him and placed him in a room close to the entrance so he wont bother anybody else! *thumbs up. The bigger bummer was that EXPEDIA didn't inform us that they were renovating the pool area and that we were not allowed to use that. We were so excited to spend some time at the pool with our toddler so that was disappointing. But we found other stuff we could do and the beach in front of the hotel was equally liked by the LO.

"Very nice apartment in quiet neighborhood "
I enjoyed my stay at this 1b1b apartment. Thenplace was decent, clean, well equipped. The Gym was next door. The neighborhood was quiet and appeared safe. the only downside is that it is located a bit far from the convention center.

"Happy weekend!"
Loved the Lafayette. Family of 4 (kids are 8 & 10) stayed 3 nights the first weekend in December so we didn't cross paths with the wild summer pool parties but I can see the potential and may have to come back sans kids for some of that. Even during our winter visit there were several private parties but they didn't interfere with our fun -- noise died down by 10pm and kids were so shattered from our days out that nothing could have awakened them. We had a poolside room on the ground floor and the kids swam several times a day -- pool was at 82. We did balboa, a chargers game, the zoo, a festival, the theater....and the kids say the best part of the trip was the pool at Lafayette. Loved the staff, the restaurant, the vibe, and the location. Super convenient to Balboa Park (quick and cheap by taxi/uber) and in a cool neighborhood. We made a 20 min early morning walk to a North Park eatery (Breakfast Repubic -- amazing) and loved looking at houses and yards and plants and real life. Luigis pizza (1 block away) was the kids' favorite meal -- we liked it, too. Lafayette has good energy -- we'd like to go back. I'd be wary of a poolside room with kids (or any desire to sleep) on a summer weekend, but The Lafayette has a place in our hearts for sure and we feel lucky to have found it!

"Location, Location, Location"
This is a nice hotel, but the real attraction is its location. It is located on Mission Bay, and is just one block from Mission Beach on the Pacific Ocean. The hotel has a number of bungalow type structures and two 4-story buildings. The grounds are quite large for a hotel, but the bungalows take quite a bit of space. About half of the bungalows sit on the bay with sandy beaches right outside the front door. Our room was in one of the 4-story buildings. All the rooms have a balcony. In the morning we were able to sit on the balcony, drink our coffee and watch the kayakers, and paddle boarders. From the hotel you can see the Mission Beach amusement park and roller coaster. There are many restaurants within walking distance. We brought our bikes with us since there are many bike trails in the immediate area, and you can ride a bike on the Mission Beach board walk. Mission Bay has a lot of city parks and green spaces. Sea World is just a few miles away. The rooms were large, clean, and comfortable. The staff was friendly and efficient at checking you in and out. The restaurant at the hotel served good food and was reasonable prices (for a hotel). If you want a real San Diego beach experience, I highly recommend this hotel. It is a great place for kids, even has a tennis court. The parking is free, which is a real plus since I have paid up to $45 per nite at other San Diego Hotels. The one draw back was that the parking lot filled up in the early evening.

"Great location in Little Italy"
Close to Italian markets and restaurants, self parking below the structure reasonably priced. Walk to the Port of San Diego, there is the Maritime Museum. Between San Diego Zoo and La Jolla Beach, great location. The pillows and comforter were down the mattress was new, new interior features as well. The only drawback which may be a plus for you was the Italian chatter until midnight from the cafe below are nearby restaurants.

"Beautiful surroundings, landscaping"
short overnight stay, convenient location. I did not like the $64.95 per person cost for the turkey buffet. I thought it was a typo. Having been in the restaurant business in Alaska, this was shocking to me. We went to Jack in the Box.
