Simple but Classy Hotel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Dec 8, 2023
A no-frills hotel in the Gaslamp area. Has all the necessary things for a short visit. We wished the A/C was cooler. Could only be adjusted to 64 degrees F. Area has lots of bars and restaurants. Could be noisy especially on weekends.

Sergio went above and beyond for us to ensure our stay was great! We highly recommend staying here if you’re looking for a cute, fun and thoughtful hotel experience. We loved the rooftop and restaurant connected to the hotel “Saint James”.

Again, we are so grateful to Sergio for all of his help during our time at the Pali hotel - we will be back :)

The staffs here are the best. Sergio and everyone else were so helpful and patient when I was struggling with payment option. Everyone was smiling when I asked things and things.
The room was clean, the hotel is close to anywhere in the city. The room was very well prepared: never seen that huge "mini" bar lol; it was during Halloween weekend when I stayed, which made the nights painfully noisy, ear plugs were prepared and had little problem sleeping.

Thank you for being our guest Road809833! We are so glad to hear that Sergio and the rest of the team took such great care of you during your stay with us. Downtown hotels can become noisy and I'm glad to hear that the ear plugs did the trick to keep the noise away and allowed you to have a restful night sleep. We hope to welcome you back soon!
