  • Family with children

    The hotel needs a lot of updating. They are in a great location and should really update everything.

  • Single


    Is an old hotel, and not very clean,

  • Group of friends

    We did not like it . This place should be rated as 2 stars hotel , bathroom in bad conditions , air conditioner old and loud , we could not sleep because the noise . They don't even have cable TV and they charge $6 per day for parking . We will never stay in this hotel again .

  • Older travelers

    Great location, affordable, considerate staff, clean...the list goes on and on. It was far more than I expected to receive for the price in such a prime location.

  • Older travelers

    The Staff were wonderful and room were clean great for the price.

    The Parking was little small.

  • Group of friends

    The location, and the theme of the hotel and rooms.

    Parking garage was extremely cramped and difficult to park in.

  • Couple

    The rooms were very clean and they have a wonderful staff.

  • Older travelers

    It was within walking distance of Old Town.

    The breakfast was terrible. Not even trays to make it possible to take what was there back to your room.

  • Older travelers


    The room was hidious. The full size sheets used on the queen size bed did not stay on at all and we ended up finding ourselves on the bare mattress several times. The flat pillows left both of our necks cramped.

  • Single

    Nwas able to combine a family visit and sight seeing

    Would have liked a place with a pool

  • Family with children

    It takes 3 minutes to Old Town shops and restaurants by foot, so location is best. I prefer to stay in third floor, because of its view from window. Every night before 10 o'clock, you can enjoy taking a look at three-minutes-fireworks from Old Town Street.

  • Group of friends

    Price and location close to the Old Town

    Immediate area being warehouses and back alleys

  • Older travelers

    We liked that it was in Old Town San Diego and close to our favorite restaurants. The room itself was clean.

    We were surprised to see such a run down hallway with threadbare carpet. The front lobby was tiny and didn't offer much in terms of any extras, no place to really sit down and relax while the other person checked in, etc. Also, the parking spots were difficult to get into and we needed to back in because we were afraid we would not be able to get out. The price was way over the top for what the accommodations included. It should have been less than $100 but because we booked late it was $169. By the time we did tax and other fees, it was closer to $200. We have stayed in way better hotels for that price. We will not be staying there again.

  • Older travelers

    Old town San Diego location for walking the area.

    The room was very much in need of an update. Everything was old and dirty looking; the curtains, bedspread, blankets, sheets. The wall paper border was peeling off. They advertise complimentary continental breakfast, which was Cheerios, frosted flake cereal, bad tasting orange juice and coffee we could not drink. The booking price was way overpriced for the room.
