        • Couple
          7.4

          Interesting older building in a central location in San Diego. Short drives to downtown or to the beaches.

          Leaking plumbing fixture in the bathroom.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Staff was friendly and hotel was quiet. Could use some updating on the rooms but for the price it is just fine.

        • Single
          8.8

          Safety, convenience of garage

          Screen was torn on one window and non existent on the other. No slip strips in bathtub weren't long enough. I nearly slipped getting into the tub.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Great pool, skimpy pool towels, adequate continental breakfast. Staff argued with each other at the front desk a bit. Nice history.

          some construction noise, but realize you need to maintain an old hotel.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          On the web-site sayd they have a continental breakfast,however there wasnt there,we were desapointed.For that price they should have.

        • Family with children

          Historic hotel with modern amenities. Great quality room for an even better rate.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          The second room was much cleaner and did not smell of smoke.

          The first room we were assigned had a very strong smoke smell even though the hotel is supposed to be smoke free. The carpet was stained and the couch had rips in it. When approaching the staff they offer to spray for the smell but did not want to change the room until I insisted.

        • Family with children
          5.0

          Too noisey and lots of party goers for sure. Not recommend for a family with children. Pool had green alge and spa was way too hot to enjoy!

        • Single
          8.2

          I enjoyed the price for the room considering the size of it (it was very spacious).

        • Family with children
          6.6

          The architecture and atmoshere of the hotel was awesome. I loved that it has a history.

          We found the cleanliness of the facilities to be lacking. The pool and hot tub needed a good tile scrubbing and the hot tub smelled. I also didn't like that there was no information about the city inside the room. There were information sheets about cabs, local restaurants, and directions at the front desk, but it is nice to have a city guide in your room. As well, there were no instructions on how to use the phone and I had to call the front desk (had to figure that one out), several times to get information. I also was disappointed that we had checked in with four people, yet both days we were there we were only alloted 2 towels for the four of us. I had to ask twice to get extra towels.

          Poor service. Not much value for money. They charged nearly 125 yet it was only like a normal room. Not even conditioner or lotion available.

        • Group of friends
          4.2

          Location was ok

          Did not care for it at all . Staff were rude. Several things ,in the so called remodeled rooms ,were broke . Shower went from cold to scolding and back again to cold . Room was very plane and could use a good dusting

        • Older travelers

          Location is great!

          The pool is a unique experience. It is a hot spot for trendy locals looking to mingle (none of whom are actually hotel guests). If you are into 20-somethings with lots of tattoos- this is the place for you!

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          Initially I was very upset. They are undergoing a major renovation and I was in an old room. There was dirt at bottom of glass door. The blanket was holey. The bathroom was clean but sink was bearly attatched to wall.After speaking to staff I was moved to renovated room next day. I would love to see the place after full enovation. It is very historic and quaint. Breakfast lacks fruits and protein but price was excellent!

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          no ice bucket, remodeling going on, poor continental breakfast, lack of bath linens.
