Reviewed 22 December 2016 via mobile

For the past four years we have been visiting San Diego during the months of December and January. Island Inn, which is located in the Gaslamp area and walking distance to the Seaport Village, is an affordable, pleasant place to reside in. The lodgings are airy, bright and comfortable. We couldn't ask for anything more.

This is the 2nd time I've stayed here. I've also stayed at the J St Inn, which is another in the same group. This one has the edge, as it has a roof terrace. They are both just great value. The rooms are basic, but perfectly clean. Free Wi Fi in room. This time we were lucky enough to even...

The hotel in itself is not magnificent, but given the price and location, it is a great value. It is a clean basic extended stay place for students, and young professionals who do not want to pay daily 200-300 bucks but still want to enjoy the proximity to san diego downtown, historic gaslamp district, and the train station. Note that...

Good hotel, much cleaner than hotels in the surrounding area. Lots of space in the room. Prices were low around $80-90. Staff was very nice and very helpful.

Having stayed seven times at the J Street Inn one block down (see those reviews, too) , I decided to try the Island: It's even better! For the unbelievable weekly rate of $299, this place is equal to any Comfort or La Quinta Inn, right in the Gaslamp area. The staff are very friendly and helpful, check-in and out are...

I was attending a conference at the conveniton center and was looking for an inexpensive hotel close by. I was very happy to stumble across the Island Inn which isn't really a hotel but a type of short to long-term housing unit. They do rent out rooms by the week for tourists and the price could not be beat. The...

I really can't fault this place. My boyfriend and I stayed there for 2 weeks in February. We had had a bad experience elsewhere and just happened to come by the Island Inn by chance, but we were so glad we did! It was so affordable - it worked out to be $40 p/n plus tax for the whole room...
