          It's a good place to stay while visiting San Diego. Walking distance from the restaurants in old town, and from ther train which will take you anywhere you want.

          Great long weekend in Old Town!”

          We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel - staff was friendly, room was clean, location was so convenient to Old Town and only a $10 Uber ride to about anywhere - Gaslamp district, Little Italy, Seaport, beaches, zoo... Super close to the airport. My only suggestion would be an upgrade on the breakfast - only carbs offered (made to order Belgian waffles, toast, muffins, cereal) - would love to have seen some protein (hard-boiled eggs are easy and cheap, yogurt) and some fresh fruit. Would definitely stay again!

          Good place, and good location!”

          Like many of the others reviews have stated, the place it's self is a little run down but the staff was great! Our room was HUGE and was clean. Run down was the only issue but we only slept here. We had no intention of spending all day in the room so the old and outdated stuff didn't bug us. The AC worked, the TV worked, the bathroom and fridge worked so we were very pleased! No heavy blankets or comforters so bring your own if you like extra cushy bedding. No breakfast due to covid (what else is new🙄) but plenty of places to eat within less than 5 min walking distance. Had great food, LOTS of drinks and walked safely back to our room each night!

          I stayed here because it was cheaper than other locations. I got what I paid for. ”

          Pros. Near the 5 freeway. Close to downtown and it's in Old Town. Free wifi, and breakfast. Beds were decent and friendly staff. Cons. No pool. Parking not free. Even if you paid, it's real tight for underground parking. The bathroom was not pleasing at first sight. (Rust and mold looking).

          The hotel was walking distance to old town (less than 3 minutes). The hotel itself was dirty and run down. The bathroom had mold and the toilet seat was loose from the floor. I used points for the room. Although the hotel location was great, we will not stay here again unless the hotel remodels the rooms.
