Poor 2.0
Avoid at all costs.
Worst hotel I have step foot in. At best a 2 star hotel. The reviews are extremely misleading. My colleagues and I checked in for a 4 day work trip. We left immediately after seeing (and smelling) our rooms. When we asked for a partial refund the staff refused. We checked into another hotel and they still charged us for 3 rooms for the full 4 nights. Even though we stayed 20 min, they even charged us the security deposit. Also, we were guaranteed parking, and there was none. Best to avoid this spot. Very confused on the reviews and ratings. If you like the smell of wet dog then maybe give it a go.

Cozy central hotel
Excellent stay in this cozy San Diego hotel! Located in Little Italy, right next to the main street, it is easy to access everything from this hotel. No, there is no restaurant in this hotel, but you won't want one. Right next door are four different restaurants and the parallel street has enough restaurant selection that you can go to a different one every day for a week! Gaslamp Quarter, the USS Midway, and Seaport Village are all in walking distance. Balboa Park and Old Town are further but easily accessible by the transit in town. As to the room itself there wasn't a view but that wasn't the focus of my stay. The room had a great, very comfy bed! There was a mini fridge and microwave for any leftovers you happen to bring back (very handy with all the delicious food)! The bathroom is perfect with a great shower. At night it was a great room, quiet and relaxing (despite the bustling nearby restaurants). There is an A/C unit, breeze with an open window, and cable TV to relax to. Great location, great rooms, comfortable and central, would go again!

Post-cruise trip for couple.
Hotel is small and simple. Bed very small and too high. Continental breakfast is very continental, no egg, no meat but ok. Wifi is good. Front desk staff very polite, helpful, and friendly. Location is within 20 minutes walk from Cruise Terminal. Right in the heart of Little Italy with plenty of restaurants around. Will return.

A little gem!
Location: AMAZING! Love all the restaurants! Farmers Table for breakfast— check it out! Service/Staff: great!! They are so friendly and helpful. :) Thank you!!! Noise: They need to do something about this. We were on the first floor and all night- noise from elevator, front desk (a radio? Music? Something allllll night). We bought earplugs, but it didn’t seem to help. Do not get a room on the first floor. Maybe if they had a door separating the foyer from the hallway... We would recommend and stay again- as long as we were not in the first floor.
