    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    This was a great place to stay -- within walking distance of a lot of great restaurants, and a short Lyft from so many other things. I just wish I had been able to stay longer!

    1/5

    • Liked: Cleanliness
    • Disliked: Amenities

    The hotel is conveniently located in the Gaslamp district of San Diego. Staff was courteous. However, parking is outrageous--- $50/24 hours. They also tell you when you check in that there will be a $25 "amenity" charge which is a very vague charge. They say it's for internet, coffee in the lobby in the morning & phone (which we did not use). The room is tiny. There is NO closet or any place to hang your clothes. Walls are thin & we could hear neighbors talking. On arrival there was no hot water which they later fixed. This hotel is definitely not worth the price,
