Great location near Little Italy area, decent rooms, clean, but too much traffic outside (cars, trains, planes)... If you need more than 15 minutes of sleep during the night, choose some other place...

2 star places get a rough time as they often get bad reviews purely because people compare them to a higher star motel. We had 3 nights here and it was fine. Service was good, rooms were large, wifi was great. Sure the rooms are a bit dated and the bathrooms could do with a refresh, but they were clean....

I absolutely love staying here because of the closeness to the airport. It's on walking distance to a few places to eat which isn't bad. The customer service is ALWAYS on point every time I come here.

I couldn't park due to the small area, to get out was hard as well. I noticed I wasn't the only one having this problem. Everything else was good in the room, clean and the bathroom had enough towels.

We loved our stay here. It was fantastic to have a separate room with bunkbeds for the kids. The location is perfect, right across from the bay. Little Italy is walking distance from the hotel. We will definitely stay here again!

Staff was super friendly and responsive. Room was clean enough. Fan in bathroom was noisy. TV was a flatscreen in HD (thank you) great location and ALL ocean views. Definitely a good deal. I did get bit by something, probably a spider, but i suppose that could happen anywhere.

We recently stayed here one night after our flight in to San Diego. The hotel was easy to find and just what we needed. The parking lot is small, and we found the last spot that evening which was a relief since we had our baby. The room was comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the local coffee shops in the...

“Odd shaped table in room that didn't fit where it should be. Old beat up chair that wouldn't fit anywhere near the table. Old dresser with drawers that were always sliding out. Otherwise, good, clean room for the price and location.”
