The location was perfect for a visit to the San Diego Gas Lamp District, within walking distance to everything. The hospitality was terrific, very clean and comfortable rooms and an excellent pool area. We arrived just in time for the daily welcome hospitality hour and were greeted with a free glass of wine or beer and snacks.

Everything. Very thoughtful staff made us feel welcome from the minute we drove up. Housekeeper left us a handwritten welcome note. The hotel set out a beautiful coffee bar in the morning - along with bananas and waters bc they knew many guests were in town for a race. Decor is fun and hip, newly renovated pool deck is hot. Walking distance to everything in downtown / gaslamp. Perfect place to stay for our race.
