10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The hotel is conveniently located in downtown San Diego. It was spotless. The breakfast was actually served next door, and it was delicious!
Cons:They didn’t have a shuttle driver available when we arrived at the airport. However, we were told to take a cab, get a receipt, and they would reimburse me, which they did as soon as I checked in.
8.2 Very Good
Pros:Typical BW facilities that are dependable. Great location. Ten minutes drive from airport and zoo. Easy walking to many downtown, bayside activities and restaurants.
Cons:Toilet not very effective at flushing waste. Breakfast choices somewhat limited compar s to some other BW’s.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Everything was great, walking distance to Little Italy, the bay, and so much more!
8.2 Very Good
Pros:Loved the location. It was within walking distance to the star of India ship.
Cons:The wall beside one of the beds in the room was filthy.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Excellent location, airport shuttle, close to public transportation, breakfast included
Cons:Parking fee
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The included breakfast as well as the shuttle to and from the airport
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:There is a free shuttle to/from the airport. Each room contains a refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, safe, hair dryer, and iron. I was given a voucher for free breakfast buffet in the attached restaurant and the staff kept it well-stocked, even when it was nearly time to end the buffet. I flew in early and the hotel let me check in early without charging an extra fee.
Cons:There were several issues with the condition of the room. The refrigerator, TV, microwave, and lamp were all broken. I attempted to restart the fridge and the TV by unplugging from surge protector and plugging directly into socket, trying different sockets, etc. but was unable to get them going again. A very nice maintenance man did some trouble-shooting and was able to get them working with a bit of effort. The switch on the lamp was bent, loose, and shorted out. Cleanliness was also a problem, maybe because of my early check-in. A used towel was stuffed under the safe in the closet. One bar of soap in the bathroom had gotten wet and was unusable. There was a curly hair on the bathroom counter. There was no lotion. Overall, the experience was NOT what I expected from a $200 per night hotel and I do not recommend it.
8.0 Very Good
Pros:Great location, very clean and comfortable. I would stay there again.
8.0 Very Good
Pros:Even though the hotel was unconstruction, it had great service. Good room for a good price. We only stayed for one night and everything was great. No complains about anything. Highly recommended this hotel its rest the pier and has good restaurants near as well.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:The view from the balcony was a direct line to the waterfront and the Star of India. The room was very clean. Breakfast is provided at the attached restaurant which is a nice facility. Transportation is provided to and from the airport and to the cruise ship terminal. The location is convenient to walk to Seaport Village, Little Italy, local bus line, the zoo, Gaslamp district, multiple other restaurants, as well as pharmacies and shopping. There is no need for a car.
Cons:The lobby area is being remodeled and I knew that when I booked. It was a little dusty, but not inconvenient in any way. However, although the rooms are very clean, the furniture, wall coverings, and carpet are looking a little tired and worn out and in my opinion, these are the areas which should be updated.
