Comfort and proximity to SanDiego center

4 out of 5
by from Sydney
Posted Feb 18, 2017
Pros: Location is great: near center of town, I5 and most tourist areas. Half way between town center and airport.
Cons: nil
Location: Balboa Park, which has the zoo and many museums, is a few minutes away. The Maritime Museum is a short walk to the west. All teh restaurants of littl
It was great to have a comfortable bed and convenient carpark close to Little Italy, a short walk to the Maritime Museum or trolley trip to the Convention Center. Balboa Park, which has the zoo and many museums, is a few minutes drive away. Very close by are also a 7/11 and a Jack-in-the-Box. The air conditioning was effective and the staff helpful.

Basic accommodations

Posted Feb 17, 2017
Pros: Room seemed clean and well maintained
Cons: Not much you can do about the small Motel environment
Nothing to brag about, but it was a cost effective place to sleep. Wifi was not great and no coffee/breakfast of any kind.

Mixed Feelings - Needs Cleaning

3 out of 5
Posted Jan 27, 2017
My feeling about Pacific Inn&Suites is mixed. Pros: It is in a great location! You can easily explore Little Italy and the Gas Lamp neighborhood. The staff was very friendly, and the price is cheap for an easy weekend trip. Cons: There were bed bugs. My boyfriend felt something biting him out first night there. We thought it may be fleas, but the second night it happened again. Upon closer inspection, we found bed bugs. A new room was not available, so we left. The staff was apologetic, but I hope they do a thorough cleaning of their rooms. It was an upsetting experience, and I'm not sure I will ever risk staying there again.

Pest services have been contacted to perform a full inspection and cleaning.

Disrespectful and Disappointed

1 out of 5
Posted Dec 20, 2016
Pros: Good location. Next to airport.
Cons: The staffs treatment to its customers.
Location: The location is not too far from the bay and right next to a jack in the box. Downtown and the airport are only a 5min drive away.
I am currently active duty military and I had made a reservation through Expedia for this hotel. However, when something came up that kept me staying longer at my other duty station and I wanted to cancel my reservation, they gave me a hard time (even though it was not going against the hotels policy). They said "We do not care that you are active duty military and that it was too late to make any changes" (which is false according to the hotel policy). Overall, a very bad experience. I would be very careful on booking with this hotel. Once you press pay, you are going to need to go through hell to get your money back.

Thank you for letting us know about your experience trying to cancel your reservation. If you were within the time frame outlined in our policy, 24 hours prior to your booked night, you should not have had difficulty with a cancellation. Therefore, we sincerely apologize for the miscommunication and any frustration you may have experienced. Again, we thank you for your feedback as well as your service to our country.
