This hotel was comfortable for the night but there are a few things you need to know before booking. Some are out of the control of the staff, who were kind and courteous. Its not easily accessible by public transportation from the airport. The desk told us to take the bus, get off at third and walk a few blocks....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 February 2017 via mobile

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.

On our trip to San Diego we changed many hotels because we didn't plan ahead of time that we will spend all that time in the city. We stayed in days inn, motel 6, hilton garden inn, gaslamp plaza suites and finally this quality inn. The best I would say it lacks quality!! Our last stop was spending a night...

I just arrived at one of my favorite locations​ in San Diego. I was checking in and the hotel recently began to charge for early check-in. I was unaware of this. Melissa, who was working the front counter, recognized that I'm a returning guest and was able to waive the early check-in​ fee since this was my first time back...

Stayed 4 nights in Feb 2017 for a convention. Room was small and noisy as mine was road facing. The curtains did not block out the sunlight and this was a bit of a bother.

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...

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.
