"great location!"
Hotel Sofia is a great place to stay. It is close to downtown, Little Italy, Balboa park and the Embarcadero. Dozens of activities within a couple miles. The staff was polite and helpful - they bypassed the motion detector in the AC so the room would stay cool. Bike rentals and other services are available. If there is a downside, its parking which is fairly pricey... But, that's true everywhere in SD. The rooms were nice and clean.

"Charming boutique hotel!"
Checked in late on a busy Saturday night and wound up in a lower level non view room. Toms was awesome and set us up to move the next day to a better room for the rest of our stay. Great location, great staff, super charming boutique feel. Will definitely stay here again. Till next time Hotel Z!

"Close to harbor "
Nice place for kids and to see an Old School band. Good location by the Harbor and a few restaurants you can walk to. Not far from the fishing docks. Mini-Suite had full size fridge, electric stove, utensils and plates. So you could make your own food or reheat your leftovers.

"A gem in La Jolla"
During my years working as a travel writer I have been privy to staying in some of the nicest hotels around the world. And the boutique Scripps Inn is in my Top 3. The rooms are spacious, bright and nicely appointed. There is just the right amount of furniture to keep the feeling light and airy. Room #15 has a little patio facing the water - ideal for the morning coffee or the afternoon cocktail. But all the other rooms, too, have a little sitting arrangement outside their door to relax and enjoy the view. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, creating an atmosphere that feels like visiting distance relatives.

"Convenient location and great customer service "
We chose this hotel primarily for its convenient location in the Downtown SD area. It is 10 minutes away from almost everything we wanted to see - Little Italy, Gaslapm, the beach. It gives you the option of late-check in and everybody was very polite and welcoming. It is great for one or a few nights stay, especially if you are not planning on spending a lot of time in your room. But keep in mind that it is an old building, nicely kept and everything but still kind of old. The walls are not very thick so you can hear a lot of noises from the hallway or the other rooms. They provide you with earplugs but still it is something to consider if you like quiet private settings. Overall, it was very clean, had everything we needed, even free Wi-Fi which most other hotels charge you for, and it was part of the Expedia Vip Program, so we did like our stay there.
