Central location close to convention center, gaslight district and waterfront. The room (815) looked out onto the parking lot next door. There was some traffic noise at night that woke me up. Room facilities were excellent, comfortable bed. For the price, WiFi access should be included, it was not.

This is the second time I stayed in this hotel in a week. As mentioned in my earlier review, the air conditioner is very noisy and the room is kind of dated. Most of all, the hot water shower was not very hot. Thus, I requested a "newer" room from the receptionist. if available, as I checked in this second time. The receptionist was extremely nice and efficient; and agreed to give me a new room. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the size of my room. It was huge!! Yet, there was no closet at all, and not even one hanger. I guess this "new" room used to be a function room that is now converted to a guest room, but the management might have forgotten to put in some closet space??? The air conditioner was still so noisy that we had to turn it off while we slept. The wall was so thin that we could hear people talking on the corridor. All in all, we pay for what we get!!

This motel was clean, safe, and had very friendly, helpful, and welcoming staff. Location is near the water, a couple of blocks from the hub of Little Italy. Free parking. Loved the eco-friendly shower curtains and shampoo/soap. Bed was firm and comfortable. Fast free wireless in our room.
We paid in advance via Expedia, so didn't experience the rate inflation people are mentioning. There is a 50$ deposit when you arrive which was refunded when we left- odd, but oh well.
Cons: The room was clean but very outdated (cathode ray tV, old and worn everything). No hair dryer in room (they let us borrow one), had to ask for a 4th pillow and extra blanket (they brought right away). The room was non-smoking but right next to outdoor smoking area- I'm allergic so walking to room was uncomfortable a couple of times.
* I was worried about the couple of reviews that mention mold smell as I am allergic to mold too- we didn't experience mold smell at all in our room or anywhere else, and I'm very sensitive.
We will definitely return. This is a great budget option for a safe and clean space, impressively helpful staff, can't beat location.

San Diego’s waterfront airport lies northwest of downtown, which is home to the San Diego Convention Center, PetCo Park stadium, and the Gaslamp Quarter’s. That historic neighborhood’s restaurants and bars are the hub of the city’s nightlife. Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo form a green swath in this urban jungle. Offshore, Coronado Island offers postcard views of the city skyline.
