They hotels have big problem between organisations between his department and they can make you suffering during your stay .please check every thing multiple times do note take there words as final. We i check in i confirmed that my stay is fully pay because it is done before i check in by the company. And they said yes it is done. Then after i check out they send for my an email to inform me they'll take a money from my Visa. I said it is already paid by company and you confirmed that .i don't authorised them to take from my own visa .they make me sadly
And i have bad memories about this hotel i will note forget. They will send an copy paste answer which is send to every on how comment on them put they don't solve the problem or change theme slave. They distorted my trip and make me sad i lost the tripe happens because of them .pleas by careful when you booking with theme and check all cement about them.

Pleasant enough but nothing great

I shared a room with two full size beds with my son. The room was small but perfectly clean and nicely appointed. The staff were all friendly and nice. The breakfast was weak - as others have pointed out, the food was slim pickins. For the money, it seemed like the hotel should have more to offer. It's better than three stars, but four seemed too high.

Location: best. Rooms: mediocre. Breakfast: meh

The only thing going for this hotel is location. Rooms are kind old. Bathroom is very old, with very dirty rough wooden sliding door.

Breakfast: not even worth writing. Nothing hot is served (except Coffee). You have your cereals, 3 kind of breads slice, a few variety of muffins and bagels, yogurt, cold boiled egg, some fruits, coffee, hot water. Thats it! Don't look for any pancakes/waffles/scrambled eggs/omeletes/bacon/beans/etc etc.

I had better breakfast in roadside hotels and 7-11s.

Oh, and no one is at the front desk. And that's during the peak time in evening. Twice we were standing at the desk and had to shout "hellooo" a few times to get someone's attention. That's on a Friday evening!!!

Incredibly comfy bed!

This hotel is elegant and well-appointed. It is in a fantastic location within walking distance to Gaslamp and Little Italy. Check in was easy. The bed was the most comfortable one I have ever slept in and the room was gorgeous. Would definitely recommend!

Fantastic Experience

I had a fabulous and wonderful experience with my stay. The room had a great view and quiet. The hotel staff was kind, helpful and friendly. Hotel is walkable to many activities such as little Italy, convention center and short ride to Balboa park.
