Santa Rosa, California

We were vacationing in California during our three-week Christmas break. On the spur of the moment, we wound up in San Diego. My parents and my sister had all had good things to say about the Marina Inn, having stayed there before and after cruises they had taken in the past few years. We did not think twice about staying...

After realizing my man would arrive later than expected we were looking for a small and cheap hotel our closest possible to the airport, in which we were lucky and found this place for 50 dollars a night (we would sleep a bit only since we would arrive about 3 am). My friends and I went to our respective rooms...

We were looking for an affordable and nice opportunity for 2 nights in San Diego. This hotel on Pacific Highway turned out to be just perfect for our needs.

We spent here 3 nights and were surprised by price and proximity to downtown. Metro station is just 5 minutes. Famous ship Star of India just 7 minutes walk. Friendly staff, free breakfast (mostly muffins and apples). There are also two 7 Eleven around.

Very good value for money ! Impeccable staff (hyper pro, friendly and welcoming). Perfect situation (near the airport, the train, the port, Little Italy, not far from downtown) The rooms are clean as well and the beds are comfortable. A little noisy but for us, it was not a problem. For sure, we will come back !

No frills, but our room was clean and we walked to Gaslamp, Little Italy and Seaside. Also the hotel is very close to the Amtrak station. Very friendly staff, and I agree the breakfast is just enough to tide you over until a real sit-down breakfast or maybe even lunch. My only real area of concern was the shower; cold,...

“Odd shaped table in room that didn't fit where it should be. Old beat up chair that wouldn't fit anywhere near the table. Old dresser with drawers that were always sliding out. Otherwise, good, clean room for the price and location.”
