This hotel charged me $100 the day before check in- prior to the cancellation window. That was weird as I have never experienced that before. The staff are friendly and welcoming upon arrival (except for 1 lady who checked us out- she was abrupt and rude). The location is perfect for partying in the Gaslamp district. The rooms-- SO small....

This hotel is very old and in poor condition. The historic elevators were the most interesting part of the hotel, but entering and exiting them was quite challenging, especially with luggage. The room was very small and the furniture outdated. The bed was lumpy soft, but sleep was challenging with loud noises (talking, yelling, swearing) from adjacent rooms and hallway....

I am hesitant to rave about our stay, for fear that we won't be able to get a room in the future, but we were very impressed. Ramada hotels are sometimes problematic, but not this one: The frontdesk and bell staff was unfailingly pleasant and available. Even the maintenance person was totally on the case of 2 minor problems -...

First off, the exercise room is just a hotel room with two treadmills. No free weights. The elevator is old old old and kinda cool. The hotel was inexpensive and located in the Gas Lamp. It met my needs. The free shuttle to the airport leaves every hour so call down to the front desk and get scheduled for your...

If you are looking for modern, hip, and generic this hotel is not for you. Beautiful vintage hotel with door/gated elevator from 1913. Hotel has maintained many of the old features of days gone by. Rooms are small but so were people back then. Stayed there on December 20, 2016 for one night and will return. Yes valet parking but...

We picked this hotel because of its location in the heart of the Gaslamp district. It certainly doesn't measure up to what I would consider a typical Ramada/Wyndham property (3-4 stars). First of all, it is quite an old building. The rooms are very small, and the building is quite old (plumbing and electrical on the inside of the rooms,...

The hotel location is great...right in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter. I was told that the hotel was opened in 1913, and it looks like it, for better or worse. It has an old feel to it, but not necessarily in a bad way. The room was not huge but satisfactory. A permanently fixed shower head would be much...
