Nice hotel, good location close to Old Town
Posted Jan 17, 2017
Check in was easy and quick - the woman at the front desk was very friendly. The hotel is nice and the big advantage is the location. It's a very short drive from the airport car rental center, and from the hotel it's very easy to get around. Old Town is right there, so you can walk from the hotel to explore, or it takes no time at all to get to the beach or downtown to the Gaslamp area.
For my purposes it worked out really well. The only things that stopped it from getting all 5's in my rating are: AC was pretty loud and cut in and out constantly (after the first night we set it so the fan would just stay on, so that it's a constant noise instead of on and off); windows don't open (which would have been preferable to running the AC as it was cool enough outside at night), and the lobby restaurant didn't have much atmosphere - it's basically just a bunch of tables and a small bar plopped in the lobby, so it could use a bit of a decor upgrade.
However, those are small things and overall my wife and I both really enjoyed our time at this hotel and in the area. I would definitely recommend it and will probably stay there again.
