    Good position in the city. The see, the Little Italy, the Gaslamp Quarter, downtown are in walking distance.

    The breakfast could be improved. The WiFi could be stronger, but it worked.

  • Older travelers

    Wonderful room, with a great view. Had everything that we needed. Had a great meal in your restarant next door at a great price.N

  • Older travelers

    Happy with the location, price, had a very comfortable bed... all these things count a good deal.

    Staff rarely acknowledged our presence, though were helpful enough when approached. Room was stated as non smoking, however, had a well embedded smell which could only indicate it had been a smoking room for some duration previously.

  • Group of friends

    Rooms are comfortable, service is good. Location quite central and near trolley transportation.

    WiFi kinda sucks...super slow! One elevator for a 7/more story hotel...takes forever. No stairs alternative to go up, only emergency exit stairs to go down (door are locked from the outside, so you cannot use stairs to go up).

  • Older travelers

    - Good location with excellent view of the Bay thanks to the staff's responsiveness of the time of booking; - Comfortable bed; - Helpful staff although busy; - Good cleaning service.

    - Common areas need to be renovated; - Internet was disconnected several times during the four-night stay; - One of the two elevators was totally out of service. The other was temporarily out of service during our stay.

  • Older travelers

    Comfortable room. Need a bit more furniture in the room. Refrigerator in the room was large and worked very well. Staff was pleasant.

    The room doors will slam shut if you do not hold onto them as they close. You hear them all up and down the hallway. Toilet ran most of the night.

  • Single

    I was in town for business, and sought a hotel that was reasonably priced, with easy access to the Convention Center, a small fridge so I didn't have to eat out every night, and preferably a balcony with water view. I was delighted with this place. My room had sliders onto a small balcony to enjoy the ocean view and the breeze; I especially enjoyed the view of the white sails on the Star of India down the street. The little fridge was perfect, and the bed very comfortable. In the morning the attached restaurant provided a simple breakfast, and if you asked they'd give you a large to-go cup for coffee which was fantastic. Trolley access at American Plaza was an easy walk. Little Italy was also steps away, and the Maritime Museum a straight shot down the street. I'd stay here again.

    Decor was slightly out of date, but this is a minor issue and I considered my stay a solid value.

  • Family with children

    The hotel had good location just a block from Little Italy were it was nice to spend the evening. The Gaslamp District was located about 20 minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel was really value for money! We got a room with nice bayside view. The Amtrack (train) was close, but did not bother us at all (we slept with open window).The room and was big and very clean. Breakfast was included and was simple but good!

    The swimmingpool has no sun because of tall buildings.

  • Single

    The room was perfectly comfortable: beds, bathroom, furniture.

    The rooms need alarm clocks that aren't so complicated to set. In hotels, the simpler, the better.

  • Older travelers

    Awesome room, Staff was great always cheerful and very helpful. Check in time was 3:00 pm and we arrived at noon, our room was ready and they let us go right in with no extra fee for arriving early. Highly recommend this hotel!! And only a few blocks form the ocean and fun activities.

  • Family with children

    The broken elevator caused a long wait to go up and down to the rooms, especially in the mornings.

  • Single

    Kindness, attention, organization

  • Couple

    No good Breackfast and poor room. Very old building

  • Family with children

    I would like to start by stating that I booked a non smoking room. When I got to the hotel, the staff stated that they could get me a non smokng because I booked on line through I know that is not the case but to save an argument infront of my kids I decided to just bite the bullet. Also note that i had to fix the shower because the handle was loose and the refrigirator would turn off every day. So what ever you put in it was bad the next day. At this point i will not stay in this hotel again. Thank you for asking
