Clean and comfortable option in downtown San Diego
Very comfortable room, bed and bedding. Clean and nicely decorated. Not musty or moldy which is a pet peeve of mine. Thin walls but fortunately, our noisy neighbors left their room before we went to bed. They offer cleaning every 3rd night which we scheduled at check in. When the time came, no cleaning happened but the front desk was obliging with fresh towels. No breakfast, which was fine. They have a machine that dispenses coffee and hot chocolate from 6 am to 10 am. The rest of the time, they unplug it and put up an 'out of order' sign. That was a little sad. Coffee in the afternoon would have been welcome. Decent central location.

Good location to downtown. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are nice. The neighborhoods a little loud at night in the morning. Stayed here several times and enjoyed it every time.

Overall good but was lacking in multiple dept.'s
Overall, the hotel was very nice. There were a few things that were wrong. I woke up early every morning to take a shower & 2 of the days the water was "barely warm." It was pretty chilly taking showers. Also, the internet didn't work very well. Kept connecting & disconnecting constantly. The TV remote didn't work & therefore could not change the channel. Good thing the people before me must have left it on a good channel as I didn't watch a lot of TV but there were some good movies playing.
