“Birthday weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2012

Drove to San Diego for my birthday. Had a great time, love the location of the hotel, right in the middle of everything, from the beach to the golf courses and even sight-seeing places. A short few blocks to old town San Diego with all the restaurants and bars.

I live "Downunder" in Western Australia. I was visiting friends I made in the early 1990's when I played in Dixieland Jazz Bands. My visit included the 2011 Thanksgiving Day San Diego Jazz Festival. Kind friends let me use their home in Point Loma during the Festival, however, unexpectedly, this caused me to come down with severe allergic sinus infections, so much so, that I missed my flight home! Happily, Loma Lodge provided the fresh clean air in a super comfortable room with excellent bathroom facilities to allow two day's recovery prior to the delayed 41 hour trip home! What a blessed relief! The shopping on the other side of Rosecrans Street also provided lovely gifts for family & grandchildren! So disaster turned into a delight!

I really enjoyed my stay at this motel. It felt very home like. They had a fantastic weekly rate which really came in handy when on a family vacation. I was surprised to see they had a pool and it was open until 10:PM !! Absolutely Fantastic. I was happier to find out that this is a family run motel and has been owned by the same family since opening about 50 years ago!! I don't know why these other reviews weren't updated since the last. Must be under new management because this place is GREAT!
All the staff was very friendly and it was nice to see such a sharp young man assisting guests at the front desk who really knew his city.
See ya next summer Loma Lodge and Thank You for a wonderful week

Room Tip: It is worth a tiny tad extra to stay in a pool side room with your own sliding glass door onto the p...

This hotel is very cozy and clean. Great location to local beaches, tourist attractions, and restuarants. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The pool is clean and great for water exercises. Really enjoyed our stay.

We always stay at the Loma Lodge and recommend it to friends for a reasonable place to stay. We have never had a problem here like some of the ones mentioned in other reviews. Yes, this hotel is an older building and it is small, that is part of the charm for us. It is close to everywhere in San Diego that we like to visit and we appreciate the price. We hope to be back for another visit soon, we have probably stayed there at least 6 or 7 times now.
