This is a gem in the city! Lovely gardens, many and varied museums, cafes, not to mention the zoo, Safari World. So much to see and do in one location! A great place for families, couples, or to get away alone.

While this was a small hotel, the room was a good comfortable size. The location is good as well. Here you are within walking distance to many restaurants and parks. I did not enjoy the parking game. If you were lucky to find one of 9 or 10 free parking spaces on the side street consider yourself lucky. If not,... More

This property is located just 1/2 a mile from Balboa park and minutes from the Gaslamp District in the the heart of San Diego. From a location standpoint it really hits high marks as it was close to everything we wanted to do. I don't know if it is in a bad neighborhood or not since I don't know the... More

Stayed here for the Rock N Roll Marathon. Excellent location, not that far a walk to the convention center or the starting line of the marathon. Good restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner within walking distance. Rooms were very clean and quiet. Staff were friendly. Top floor balcony was very nice for drink and a wonderful view of the city... More

Stayed a week at this historical hotel which is located close to the zoo. Only a mile from the Gaslamp Quarter and Petco Ballpark. The rooms were very clean and had everything you needed. Staff were great and friendly. The only drawback of the stay was parking which was $30 a day. There are alternatives but we chose to stay... More

Our family of 4 stayed in a studio doe a week. The room was recently updated and had great amenities. They were painting and recarpeting the hall ways.

Probably my favorite Worldmark location in San Diego. First of all, great location in the city, as it's a short walk to Balboa Park. This makes for easy access to downtown, Old Town, Gas Lamp, Little Italy. And, the accommodations are top notch. Tastefully decorated with a European late twenties style, it's awesome. Very cool, modern furniture - elegant and... More
