"Quaint Boutique Hotel Convenient Downtown Location"
Just stayed at the Sofia Hotel for the second time. When I travel to San Diego on business it is the perfect place for me as it is conveniently located within blocks of my SD office. The staff is always friendly and courteous. The rooms are a bit small, most with queen size beds rather than kings, but extremely comfortable and the rooms have mini-fridges and microwaves which is a great convenience, especially when you want to take home some great leftovers from SD's many fantastic restaurants and which you cannot often do when traveling as there is no fridge or no microwave in many hotel rooms. Currant Restaurant located int hotel has some phenomenal dishes and great wines. Definitely recommend eating here at least once for breakfast, lunch or dinner. But speaking of towels, The Sofia has THE BEST towels. They are HUGE bath sheet type towels and super soft. The beds and pillows are extremely comfortable. I will definitely continue to stay at the Sofia when I travel to downtown San Diego.

"Great Location Average Experience"
This hotel's location is awesome, small town feel in the middle of San Diego. We had a fridge, free coffee and a balcony with a bay view. If you are seeing a concert at Humphrey's or want to be close to the water/beach, nice place to stay. Staff was pleasant but minimally accommodating. Forgot my toothbrush and they had nothing to provide so we drove 10 minutes to a local drugstore. We arrived at 3:30pm and our room was not ready. Forgot toothbrush they could not provide. Paying $10 a day for parking is crazy especially trying to park a larger SUV in their garage. Food in the restaurant was average for the pricing. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. The AC did not cool the room for our liking, must be governed. Also more modern amenities like usb charging ports for phones, multiple power outlets to support a notebook and accessories were not available. The level of detail in the room was lacking for the price. Still with all that said we would come back.

"Splendid hotel"
Attended here for a large conference at a hotel by the convention center. The Horton's peace and style made a welcome break for the rare hours I wasn't at the conference. Perched on the edge of old town, it was a joy.

"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.

"Convenient location near trolley"
We had tickets to the MLB All Star Game and hotels within walking distance of Petco Park were either sold out or exorbitantly priced months in advance. I had used the trolley before and knew that a hotel near a trolley stop would work well. This place fit that criterion, was reasonably priced and had relatively high ratings. It worked out well. The staff was nice, the room modern and updated. The breakfast was good. Overall good experience, although I wish the National League had won the game.

"Nice hotel close to the beach"
Hotel had welcoming Balinese appeal. Hotel was in a good location close to the beach and walking distance to everything.. Shops, restaurants, night life, and of course the cove with the playful sea lions. The hotel staff went out of their way to add personal touches throughout our stay and the daily breakfast was delicious. We would certainly return and recommend Pantai Inn!
