This review is based on a 3 night stay in mid November. PROS: The hotel has an excellent location and very close to many harbor attractions and the ferry to Coronado Island. It is also close to restaurants and little Italy. If you're a walker and don't mind long walks, may other attractions are only 1-2 miles away. The hotel... More

We stayed here while in San Diego. The hotel was lovely, very clean; the staff was superb. It is close to the public transit, right across from the water front, close to many attractions. We chose this hotel because of my Hilton Honors membership,and would choose it again. I am unaware of the price if not using points.

Extremely well priced clean and helpful especially for the location. Complementary Internet was fast, parking was the cheapest around, the staff was extremely helpful especially with a delicate personal problem. They were extremely friendly and professional.

Excellent location for harbor venues and restaurants. Walking distance to many sites. All the amenities you really need. Enclosed parking, which kept us dry from rainy weather. Will definitely stay here again. Any problems we incurred were handled to our satisfaction by hotel management immediately.

Good place. Only issue is that there is a cargo train line behind the hotel. No trains passed during the night but they start early and they make some noise. It is a very short drive to old town, Sea World and the zoo. Also very near the gas lamp district. Lot of resturants in walking distance.

Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was clean, priced very reasonably, included an above average complimentary breakfast, and at a great location. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. It is one block from Harbor Drive and a great walking area along the harbor. It is close to the airport and other great spots to check in San... More

The staff was above and beyond helpful, thoughtful and very accommodating. Within walking distance to "Little Italy" with a wide variety of restaurants. Also in close proximity to "Hop on and Hop Off" tram experience. Rooms were clean, easy access to internet with their computers (and they allowed you to print out your boarding passes) as well as computer access... More

The hotel lacks nothing. Great location,extra clean,and an excellent staff. I travel a lot and don't normally take time to fill out these reviews,but this hotel stands out. Parking was $20.00,about half of what other hotels in the area charge.

First of all, the room is nice, clean, spacious and comfortable. The front desk staff was extremely lovely. The issue I'm having is the noise. Not from outside, but inside. The walls and ceilings are paper thin. Between the extremely loud family next door, the constant door slamming in the hallway and the elephant doing tricks above me, I hope... More
