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...

The check-in process was easy but that is where the good time ended. The room was filthy & the cleaning staff had walked in multiple times without knocking when we first arrived. The bed was practically broken upon arrival and the bathroom was absolutely disgusting. The room had no space and I would never stay again. Best to avoid this...

Stayed here for two nights, got a great rate! The rooms are very small compared to other places but they are clean and well appointed. You can really tell a lot of thought went into the overall small space design. The room had a refrigerator, microwave, no bath but a nice glass enclosed shower. The air conditioner is very powerful...

We chose this hotel because it was close to the Convention center for the comic con. The price was definitely raised for the event. At $291/night I expected better accomodations but then again what do I know. The location was not walkable especially if you were in a hurry to start your day and if you plan to be already...

From its facade, the hotel looks completely acceptable. But then it went all downhill. Checking in during the evening, there wasn't a single person at the front desk. I called the hotel number on the off chance I would reach an operator. No luck. I waited 10-15 min before anyone showed up. The room itself on the ground floor was...

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review! Being in such a condensed place like San Diego, unfortunately we don’t have parking.
