First trip to San Diego and absolutely satisfied. Comfy bed, clean room and the lady at the front desk was also super kind. TV quality is not good although it is flat, but the whole price is not really expensive, totally recommended.

I have been guest at the Quality hotel this autumn. I am in general very pleased with the experience. However, I noticed that during breakfast the guests were provided with plastic glasses, plates and cups. I couldn't help alarming because each day the hotel may generate a large amount of non-recycled material, which is highly costly to our environment. Year...

Thank you for your review! We are glad to hear you had a positive experience staying with us, and that you were mostly pleased with your stay. In regards to the plastic items, we will be sure to look into alternatives. As you can imagine, retrofitting infrastructure to allow for reusable items can be quite expensive, but it is an...

The hotel's room is comfortable too. The location is a bit far from little italy and downtown but i can say that it is walkable in 15-20mins. If you are the type...

Dear Nancy, Thank you to taking the time to post your review. We are glad that you enjoyed and commented on our convenient location close to downtown as well as our tasty breakfast offerings. We realize our rooms are fairly small which is common for downtown hotels. We hope you will visit us again next time you are in town!

Place is older and rooms are small but for the price it's worth it. Parking across street for 20.00 ish bucks isn't bad compared to other hotels that charge for parking.

Please. Do. Not. Come. Here. Poorly ran hotel. Rude staff. Rude housekeeping. Sewage smell. Air conditioner hardly works and is filthy. Good luck with allergies. Tiny, oddly designed rooms. Faucet water is smelly. Towels are super old and ratty. And good luck trying to get them replenished. You swear the towels are coming from their house. Ancient old elevator. Toilet...

Stayed here after a Padres game because it was cheaper and fairly close to the stadium. While the people were friendly and the stay wasn't horrible, the rooms were a little small and I don't think I'd stay again. They had a sign at the door that said it was 100% smoke free yet there were ashtrays in front of...
