The hotel is next to the downtown hip area (gaslamp) and was very clean. It has more of a boutique hotel feel with a reasonably good breakfast. The room tended to be on the smaller side but it was sufficient for a short stay. The staff was friendly and the front desk attendants were always ready to help. There is... More

Friendly stuff, clean rooms, fast WiFi, good breakfasts, close to public transport stops and downtown. Everything was good for conference participant. Only my room was dark, so it was necessary to turn on light even during daytime.

The only reason this hotel is charges what it does is because it's in a prime location. I found and killed a couple of baby roaches in the bathroom. There were mold stains on my pillow case (after I slept on it...yuck)! The breakfast wasn't so bad but the floors and tables were sticky. Cleanliness is definitely not on the... More

I booked this hotel last minute and showed up hours before check in. The man at the front desk (I dont know his name) was welcoming and friendly . He was extremely accomodating and allowed me to check in early with only a 15 minute wait while housekeeping finished cleaning the room. The room itself was very clean including the... More

Great hotel except for the fat pillows.. Most hotels now use fat pillows. They hurt your neck. Give the guests skinny pillows and if they want a fat pillow, they can pile them up. But you can't make a fat pillow skinny.

Nice little hidden gem. Walking distance to the Gaslamp district, Little Italy, the pier just about anywhere you want to go. Also a few blocks to San Diego's transportation stops, stations including Amtrak.

The most expensive room I have stayed at with Best Western. Beautiful outdoor landscaping, older building that looks to have been remodeled recently. Small bathroom with a big shower. very Expensive and limited parking. But that's an issue any where near downtown San Diego.

This was conveniently located near all the sights. The rooms were clean & comfortable. Like many hotels of this era it could use some updating for more outlets for electronics. An outlet at the nightstands would be helpful for using your laptop on the bed. This could be easily remedied with a light fixture w/ an outlet in it
