  • Group of friends

    We were very pleased with the location and the accommodation. There is a nice pool area and the Pacific beach is right around the corner. It took us only 10 min by foot to get to Mission Beach and city center. Most of the staff was very friendly and service minded. Can highly recommend!

    Unfortunately the check-in took for ages and the receptionist was stressed and rude. Considering that everything else was satisfying, it didn't really matter and we are over all very content with our stay.

  • Family with children

    Honestly, the only great thing about the hotel is the location. It's located one block from the boardwalk along the ocean. For the price, if location is what your priority is, this hotel will work for you. However, the hotel is very old, somewhat run down and extremely noisy. We ran the air conditioner all night in the room so that we would not hear all the other noise. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were clean. The bathroom was clean. The floors were filthy and the walls needed painting. Our only time spent in room was to sleep and shower. There are much nicer hotels within walking distance of this one, however, the prices are much higher.

    Dirty and Noisy!

  • Older travelers

    the room (suite) was newly remodeled with new furniture, carpet, paint. location: excellent for walking to beaches, 100 yards, restaurants - 1/2 block, grocery stores, liquor stores, night life, clothes, banks!!! nice heated pool, well kept grounds.

    the only bad thing was the thin walls... could hear everything going on outside as well as next door, and down stairs.....

  • Older travelers

    Staff was very nice and the room was like living on the beach...

    The windows didnt close all the way so we could hear everything outside

  • Couple

    It was quiet.

    No refridgerator or microwave in the room and no real amenities forthe price

  • Single

    The hot tub, comfortable bed, location to beach shopping and restaurants.

    The bathroom, and noisy flag pole.

  • Single

    Was near many restaurants and 1 block from the beach. Pool was pleasant and owners were friendly. Room was clean.

    Very basic accomodations in older building. Could hear next room easily, air conditioning system was very loud, security was casual.

  • Group of friends

    Actually not too much... but the location to the beach is good.

    The room is filthy. Absolutely dirty and very nasty. We founded larvas in the towels... the corners of the carpet were terribly nasty... One of the employees, when we were checking out, treated us like idiots, probably just because our English was not so good. I hated the hotel, and is extremely expensive for what offers.

  • Older travelers

    The staff was informed of an incident; they immediately took care of the problem.

    One of the mattresses in my room was soiled with vomit. The appeared to have been wiped down; however, it had not been cleaned or disinfected. When I went to bed for the evening, (Friday 03, 2010), I smelled the odor of vomit and discovered that the top area of the sheet on the left side of the bed was soiled with damp brown in color stains. I removed the sheets and discovered that the mattress was wet and wreaked with the stench of vomit. The office was closed; therefore we could not inform the staff of the issued until the morning. The staff was informed as soon as the office opened the next morning, (Saturday 04, 2010).

  • Single

    The location is terrific -- one block from beach, a couple of blocks from busy Garnet street, easy drive to downtown San Diego. Although I didn't use it, it had a great full kitchen. The living room was comfortable and it had a nice flat screen TV. Management was very friendly.

  • Group of friends

    Helpful staff - nice location, perfect for pacific beach lifestyle - comfortable beds

    Small bathroom (but i choose the small room) - with little more it could be much more

  • Family with children

    The beds were very comfortable. The hotel was close to the beach.

    Wi-fi was nearly impossible to get in our room...we had to stand outside of the door most of the time just to get a signal and be in the pool area just to use it. The carpet floor was real dirty...left your feet black walking around in the room. All three nights we stayed the people above us were playing loud music and having a 'wrestling match' banging and jumping on the floor until early hours of the morning.

  • Couple

    This is a dump. Drug dealing residents. NO parking within 3 blocks! Paint peeling off walls. Bathroom fixtures visibly rusty. Bathroom fixtures not cleaned for 3 days...Same hairs and fluids never wiped when room cleaned! Beds sag, very uncomfortable. Circuit breaker trip when blow dryer used. Unfriendly staff. NOT recommended!

  • Single

    Room service was good and the room was clean. Although not on the front it was only 50 yds from Pacific Beach which is beautiful. Pool/jacuzzi if you want that also. Staff were friendly too.

    Facilities were poor... no plug for bath and basin when I arrived. and there are no coffee making facilities in the room. No iron,hair drier etc and the plumbing was noisy. Walls very thin and nowhere much to sit except at a tiny cheap table but if you want somewhere to lay your head it's perfectly OK and not the most expensive.
