Some of the lights didn't work, the microwave was set in a place that the cord did not reach an outlet. Holes in the wall and when I asked for a chair I was told they had furniture on order. The room was clean and bed comfortable

Great price for San Diego. Free Parking a plus. Free breakfast consists of muffins and danishes and coffee. All of the front desk clerks were amazingly friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for making our stay a good one.

The hotel seems to be a family run place. I like that. The people working the front desk seemed professional and courteous and quite helpful. It seems to be a work in progress. The place is a bit older, but is being renovated. That did not negatively impact my stay. The room I stayed in had new carpet and new... More

“There are no good rooms as far as I can tell.”
  • stained curtain would not cover window so we had to close it in the door
  • This was the iron. covered in tape and bare wires where plug should be
  • The phone was missing a cord. The front desk was notified and did nothing for the 3 days I was t
  • curtains didn't close so we used the room pen to fasten them.
