Older property. Close to M.C.R.D. SanDiego. Room was larger than most. Did not like that the smoking area is where they serve breakfast, and people were smoking while I was eating. Yes it is outside, but I could still smell it.

OK for business travel. The overall condition of the hotel is nice. Staff is efficient if not overly friendly. Try to get an upper level room. The people above me were tramping around like elephants at 5:30 AM. Distance between floors is very thin. No complimentary breakfast. Hotel charges $18 per night for basic, outside ...

Historical Hotel Close to everythingThis is a historical hotel meaning it's been around for a long, long, time. If you can look past that, then you will love this hotel. It has a roof top that at night will give you amazing views of all downtown San Diego. It is walking distance to everything. We love staying here because of that. ...

In quiet neighborhood near bars and restaurantsNice hotel walking distance to shops, restaurants and nightlife. Parking is $20 a night unless you can find an open spot on the street which is almost impossible in California. Breakfast not included. Good choice for a good night sleep.
