This is by far, the WORST hotel I have ever experienced, and this is coming from someone who has stayed in hotels in numerous different countries. We checked in at approximately 8pm, had dinner and went to bed. At approximately 5am, we were awoken to find 4-5 INCHES OF TOILET WATER had flooded our ENTIRE hotel room. The smell was...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 February 2017 via mobile

First trip to San Diego and absolutely satisfied. Comfy bed, clean room and the lady at the front desk was also super kind. TV quality is not good although it is flat, but the whole price is not really expensive, totally recommended.

If your looking for a great location this is the hotel to stay in but don't expect a very nice room. It's great if you just need a place to sleep but not a room to hang out in. It's ver close to little Italy , which is a great place to eat in San Diego

The location was perfect. Close to nearby attractions and Affordable. Breakfast was good and Staff was friendly. Clean rooms. Planes were flying above the hotel. But once inside the room you can't hear them.

We were so lucky to have found this hotel! The location was awesome. It was very clean and well maintained. The staff was professional and courteous. Kaamile at the front desk was more than helpful. It was quiet at night and the location was conveniently located to Balboa Park, The Zoo, Downtown, Little Italy - all within walking distance. There...

This hotel was comfortable for the night but there are a few things you need to know before booking. Some are out of the control of the staff, who were kind and courteous. Its not easily accessible by public transportation from the airport. The desk told us to take the bus, get off at third and walk a few blocks....

On our trip to San Diego we changed many hotels because we didn't plan ahead of time that we will spend all that time in the city. We stayed in days inn, motel 6, hilton garden inn, gaslamp plaza suites and finally this quality inn. The best I would say it lacks quality!! Our last stop was spending a night...
