Concrete, Washington
Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here due to its proximity to Petco Park so my DH could walk there for Supercross. For this purpose, it was a great pick. Five minute walk. Also, LOTS of restaurants within easy walking distance, and the Gaslamp Quarter is happening on the weekends! We were also able to cross over the Convention Center steps and walk down...

Overall, really liked the hotel. Few notes. Do not like the glass blocks in the bathroom that cause light to come into the bedroom area; also need a mirror in the bedroom, there is none, making it hard when sharing a room. Also would like down pillows as an option. The sink and shower faucets are hard to use, hard...

They didn't tell me at check in that there was free coffee somewhere. Happened upon it on morning 3 or 4. Friday and Saturday night the music from downstairs was so loud that I...

I stayed at this hotel to attend a congress for 4days. All staffs are friendly and kind. But some of them speak English so quickly that I can't understand, because I'm not a native speaker. Room is very clean, and shower room has no trouble. I'd like to stay here again, when I visit San Diego.

Our recent stay at the Hard Rock was awesome and made even better by the attention given us by Reggie Garcia. Keep up the good work! Rock on!!! The gas lamp is a great experience and right outside the door. Very easy walking distance to Seaport Village, Convention center, and Petco Park. Trolley is right outside the front entrance and...

Quite good value for the quality and location. Very close proximity to many bars, restaurants, and waterfront. Very friendly hotel staff and relaxed atmosphere. Check-in time is generally much earlier than what is stated on your reservation. I would recommend staying here.

“Request a higher floor on the opposite side of the hotel from the night club, and pray there's no event at the hotel that night.”

“Room was very nice couldn't get the temp right for some reason so I just turned the unit off and the room was warmer that way. The fan ran all the time in the bathroom which was a little annoying at night so I had to be sure I left the door closed.”
