The best location for the price, close to downtown, Imperial Beach, and close enough to the border while away from the hustle and bustle. Bring your own pillow though, the pillows currently are too small and too hard.

No breakfast included. Nice Property in bad neighborhood. Friendly staff. Room service is supposed to be offered but is not. That is all as I have nothing else to contribute. Pool is nice. Keys stop working on day of check out way before check out time.

Good hotel, not a great area. Nothing to do really within walking distance. Restaurant next door is way too pricey for the food and drink offered. For the price the hotel was good, not a great area for finding food, etc.

We stayed here for a week while on vacation to San Diego area, upon arrival we were helped by Zoe and she was awesome and through the week she took good care of anything we needed, she made some suggestions to hidden gems around the city for food and things to do off the beaten path. Besides Zoes awesome service...

To echo other people's comments, the staff was super friendly and helpful! I dealt with three different people in three different instances, and all were courteous and were great with providing details about local transit, places to eat etc. Parking was a bit of an issue the one night as there was a big event at Goodies next door (great...

This was my first trip to California and I was not disappointed. The hotel and its staff was extremely nice. The location was perfect for what we wanted to do in San Diego. I would gladly recommend this hotel.

I've driven by this hotel many times on the way to launch my boat at Pepper Park launch ramp which is less than one mile away. This hotel has a great location if you like being close to the water, which I do. My one disappointment was the lack of a breakfast, something I have grown to expect having to...

The staff was very helpful and the hotel was nice and clean. I would stay there again and recommend the hotel to friends and family. The location was ok, but had a nice bike path that lead to the beach. The restaurant left much to be desired, but didn't affect my opinion of the hotel.

If you are in San Diego on a budget, this hotel is an excellent choice. It is located just south of downtown, near the Navy Base, but is also very convenient to the trolley stop which can take you into downtown San Diego for a nominal fee (much cheaper & less stressful than trying to drive downtown!). It is also...
