  • Good location driving, the hotel was un cleaned, dirty and has a very strong cigarret, bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. The breakfast was really just a continental breakfast of basics.

    The building in general is old and low water pressure on second floor shower.

  • Great location and price, old Town. Absolutely the worst hotel i have ever stayed at, the room smelled good and the part I liked the most is the microwave.

    The front desk staff were surly, internet was a bit slow in the evening and elevator was dirty &.

  • Great location to Sea World and old town San Diego. Good value for money and reasonable rate. All staff friendly and helpful, room was clean. The elevator to 2nd floor was much appreciated and basic breakfast was fine.

    Hostel on rly bad position and from hotel 95% of the food places willing to deliver were Pizza. The shower curtain was worthless.
