The hotel location is great...right in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter. I was told that the hotel was opened in 1913, and it looks like it, for better or worse. It has an old feel to it, but not necessarily in a bad way. The room was not huge but satisfactory. A permanently fixed shower head would be much...

We arrived Saturday afternoon where we were greeted by valet and Matthew at the front desk who was awesome in his recommendations to local bars/food/breweries. The hotel was very nice and clean, staff...

My husband and I arrived at the airport close to 5 p.m. called the hotel and a shuttle driver was there within a few minutes. The day we departed we had a mix-up with our airline causing us to miss our shuttle by a few minutes (absolutely no fault of the hotel). The shuttles run at the top of the...

My wife and I were recently in San Diego for a college football bowl game and we chose to stay at the Gaslamp Ramada. First of all, this is a very old, historic property, so if you want "brand-new" don't stay here. But, if you like historic properties with a lot of history and character, STAY HERE. The rooms are...

We stayed here during a trip to see our son who is in the military. The hotel is just as described, quaint, historic, small. The rooms were very small and the bathrooms were even smaller but this didn't deter from our trip at all. It was a quirky little place, the staff was very friendly and helpful, the location was...
