    The queen size bed was comfortable, but the room size was small due to additional furniture (desk, side chair, etc.). Excellent location minutes away from the airport, little italy, hillcrest and downtown.

    This was the most disgusting hotel I've ever been in. We were forced to go to the Porto Vista Hotel because the Hilton Garden Inn cancelled our reservations. We arrive at nearly midnight, go up to the room. We walked in the door and walked...More

    Hello Lisa, Unfortunately all rooms are non-smoking. But, we do offer a great lounge area to smoke if need be, it overlooks the beautiful San Diego Harbor. Please let us know if you may have any other questions. Best,
