Comfortable stay, great location
Great location. We had 2 twin rooms (4 travellers). Rooms were comfortable with plenty of towels, though a little small and felt cramped. There are plenty of places to eat nearby and hotel benefits from being a short walk from the buzzing Gaslamp area. Overall, comfortable, friendly service, and lots of character. Recommended!

We love San Diego climate!
Good hotel in good location - within walking distance if you are arriving or departing via Amtrak train - hotel is along 'Broadway' so you exit the 'Broadway' exit at station and turn left - hotel is a 5-10min walk and is on your left. Within walking distance to Gaslamp Quarter.

Special holiday
Hotel was good but considering it was a de-luxe room I thought it was rather cramped. The fridge did not work properly, kept defrosting.
