If you're not going to spring for an on-the-water hotel, this is a great little spot at a great price for its location. The staff was very friendly, it was really easy to walk to great restaurants, safe for this single mom, great little pool/hot tub and easy parking. The look of the place is a sleekly updated older motel.... More

Stayed 4 days in San Diego to see sites and be close to the beach. This little hotel was perfect. Christy and Bob were so wonderful in helping us get around the area and both were so personable. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable. We had a double queen room that was beautifully decorated and so clean. Our room... More

We stayed here only one night but it was very nice! We were upgraded to the suite for only $10 (normally $20) because we got there early for check-in and the manager was going to call us when the room was ready, instead he called and offered the suite for only $10 more. Very cute room, simple yet clean but... More

Stayed here with my son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandkids. Very cute one bedroom suite. Although a little small, we were comfortable. The rooms were recently updated and looked nice and modern (think IKEA). Small kitchen with a gas stove top, microwave and small refrigerator. Very clean bathroom. Very comfortable bed. Plenty of pillows and blankets. Queen size sofa sleeper. Full... More

Great local hotel. Clean rooms and great customer service. Barely a five minute walk to the beach. There are plenty of places to eat and drink, including a grocery store, all within walking distance.

The one bedroom units are excellent as they have a kitchen and a living room separate from the bedroom. This property is only a few blocks from Pacific Beach and conveniently within walking distance to everything. Literally park our car since everything is conveniently located near us.
