"Beautiful hotel - just a few kinks"
We researched heavily before choosing Inn at the Park. It was a great choice! This is a beautiful hotel. The rooms were awesome with complete kitchens. The hotel staff is wonderful and they pay attention to detail. Free internet access and free continental breakfast on the rooftop of the hotel every day. Their concierge desk was always open and staffed […] with someone knowledgeable and helpful to find restaurant options, get tickets for the Zoo, etc. The location was also perfect - it was an 8 minute drive to the San Diego Zoo. And the valet staff is top notch. The only concerns I had were these: 1) our room had an odd smell; reminded me of hotels in London. Maybe old building smell; not sure. 2) one day our room was not cleaned but I spoke with the staff and they sent someone that evening to clean the kitchen; provide towels and took care of me upon check out when I mentioned it. Would highly recommend this place and would love to stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Used to be a classy old hotel, now a class new-fangled one. In fact it looks like Liberace's decorator blew through... But surprisingly cheap, well located if you have a car. Stayed on business and found it central. I stayed two nights and they never cleaned my room, even though I was out from 8:30am-2pm, which was a little disappointing. So ask, I […] guess.

We loved the room, and the decor. Everything looked awesome. The bathroom was perfect, with space enough for the two of us, we loved the shower, loved the tiles and paint job! High ceilings also add to a general feeling of space throughout the room and hotel. The location might not be the most romantic, but it was right in the middle of everything we […] wanted to do. We walked all over and hardly used our car. The staff is friendly, but they could do better. There were some people that were professional and very attentive, but not everyone was up to the level of service that I would like. Over all, we enjoyed our stay and we would go back. We would even recommend it to others if that area suits them. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel with spacious room and kitchen. Super close to Balboa Park and some great restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
I really enjoyed the stay and location to Balboa Park. I was under the impression that the rooms were bigger but I liked them anyway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel, but scary"
Generally the hotel is good, but it is a bit scary. The passage looks scary, and there is a scary picture in the room. The elevator is not very good. The breakfast is, well, not so good. But the staff are very nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing hotel near the park!"
I really enjoyed the hotel. The only downsides are not enough elevators that are seriously slow, and a terrible setup for luggage drop off and valet parking (which there is really nothing the hotel can do about it). The hotel is beautiful both inside and out. The room was huge with plenty of space for 5 people. And it was very nicely decorated.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Enjoyed our Stay"
The Inn was a nice place to stay and we would go back. We were impressed by the amount of room we had and the full kitchen was really nice. It had a large walk in closet and beautiful bath. Parking was an issue but the valet was affordable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was very close to downtown and there were lots of places to eat/ […] shop within only a few miles.

"No car rental needed"
Stay was great, close to my family and other must-see sights. Only wished we were able to get room with balcony. Having TV in main room made it difficult as spouse was night owl and I was not. Suggest they have noise cancelling headphones available to borrow so when spouse wants to sleep, one can watch TV as well without disturbing other. Registraton […] and conciere desks were very polite and helpful. Room kept clean. Had great time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Trip - Valet is rude"
When we arrived at the hotel we drove right pass it because the Hotel name was not located anywhere. We only knew we passed it because our GPS told us. When we walked up to the front entrance we noticed that there was no way to get the stroller up the front steps. The valet just stared at us and didnt say anything when I asked how I could get in with […] a stroller. The front desk was nice and let us check in - the front desk pointed out the back entrance with a ramp. The staff was friendly and always asked how we were doing when we went in and out. Our room was nice and quite large. The only down side to the room was that there was no tub - the bathroom was large enough to put one in. The Basement restaurant was great, we loved the food and entertainment. Again all the staff was friendly and nice to our 1 year old. My only complaint for the restaurant was that the creme brulee was out the first night and on the second night the amount of creme brulee in the ramekin was disappointing... For $7 I was hoping for more than 3 bites. The breakfast upstairs was great and I have no complaints there - since it was free. The second night we could not find parking so we valeted - valet was extremely rude and peeled out in hotel guest cars. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic in all respects"
I will never stay in another hotel in San Diego. Clean, comfortable, large bright rooms in a historic building. Beautifully decorated, not cookie cutter - has just the right amount of character and style. Great nieghborhood. Parked the car and walked everywhere for 3 days - zoo, shops, restaurants. Good breakfast, helpful staff. I highly recommend a […] stay at Inn at the Park Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
great location, room large and well decrated rooms -- but major problems with this older complex!! It seems to be in a state between disrepair and updated. Overall, despite the lovely large rooms the creepy old hotel feel wins out. Won't stay here again. Also, staff are friendly, but the service was poor. Though we book well ahead, room was not ready […] for an hour after our 3 o'clock check in time. We never stayed at an upscale hotel with that kind of problem, and we have stayed at many and I used to write hotel reviews. Look at the Clarence Hotel in Seneca Falls, NY. It is what I though your place would be equivalent too in appearance after viewing you website. The Clarence is also historic, about the same size and the rooms have similar decor. But, wow, what a difference in the maintenance. Though old this place was like new! With your hotel, the cleaning staff seems non existence. Most place have many cleaning staff in the mornings. This is a BIG problem and someone needs to address it! Great potential but the deplorable building which seems underconstruction rather than ready to go ruins the stay. Sad. I would not review this hotel for the publisher I used to work for; I would only write for upscale properties that I could recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay during Comic Con"
Delightfully friendly staff. Comfortable and clean. Street parking is only challenge on nights when Valet lot is full.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quite a surprise"
The redo is amazing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I think the location is great, but a bit noisy. The hotel is old, but the rooms have been renovated. They need a parking structure and a pool/jacuzzi otherwise the suites come with everything you need and we loved how spacious they are.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great location...great staff"
have stayed in the past...will always be my first choice.Genuine Expedia guest review
I had a very enjoyable stay at the Inn at the Park. Nice staff and great facilities. All the places I needed to visit during my stay were within a short distance. When I return to San Diego, I will definitely use this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
A little noisy. Need better sound proofingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is an old hotel and the halls have a musty smell, that is the only negative I found at this hotel. The rooms have been redone and are lovely. We had a blast here. There were 3 women in my party. This hotel is very near Hillcrest, which is an area that serves a large gay community, as does this hotel. If this is a problem for you, you should not […] stay here. I found this hotel and area of town to be one of the most "colorful", pleasant, and safe areas I have been to, and will visit again with my husband. Most all attractions are a quick cab ride, if you have no transportation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms where very clean, and very spacious almost like a little apartment than a hotel room. The beds were uncomfortable almost better off sleeping on the floor. Everything else was awesone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Internet service not good"
It was nice but the Internet service it wasn't goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good hotel, om location. Staff is very friendly. The only real con is that the advertised "free" breakfast does not have any food in it, just some juices, coffee, tea, granola, yogurt, cheese, begals, muffins. The real food is available for purchase. It is ok, but should have been explicitly mentioned in advance.Genuine Expedia guest review
Delightful surprise. Great staff!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good but noisy"
We booked a two bedrooms suite. The rooms are big and clean. We stayed on the 4th floor and could hear the traffics all night. Besides, the noise insolation is poor. We heard the noises from the upper level in the early morning. The bathroom has been re-modeled but it is lacking of countertop space. There is no hook in the bathroom! We had to take […] a small coffee table into the bathroom so as to put our clothes. Breakfast has very limited choices but it is good for us as we don't eat a lot in the morning. The hotel doesn't have pool and fitness center. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Was shocked at the beauty of the room and the hospitality of the staff. Great decision to stay here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Affordable suite for family; exceeded expectations"
I was very pleased with this hotel; it far exceeded my expectations for the price. It is refurbished apartments, and has much more of a homey feel than most hotels. We had plenty of space for my wife and me, our two young children, and my parents in our two bedroom suite. Bedrooms are completely walled off from each other and the main large living area, […] which is important for traveling with children. The kitchen was excellent; having everything one would need except an oven. The free continental breakfast was excellent, and on the roof of the hotel with a panoramic view of the area, including the bay and nearby Balboa Park. The restaurant downstairs was also excellent and affordable, with live entertainment nightly. The staff was professional, kind, and helpful. The area was safe and quiet and easy to get in and out if with our vehicle. Valet parking was nice and reasonable for the area ($15 per night); however, you could get by with street parking, as spots were usually available on the block. All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel, and would definitely visit again, especially if I were with my family. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great and spacious rooms"
The room was very spacious and just refurbished, I really liked that it had a kitchen, a living room a separate room. The location is great, just by the Balboa Park.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Funky property Great location"
We recently stayed for 2 nights and had a nice stay. The hotel rooms are great and have a very updated look and wonderful high ceilings. Unfortuneatly the common areas are a bit rough and worn looking. The staff was very courteous and the location is wonderful. It's old but not unclean, just a bit worn around the edges. I would definitely stay again […] though. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We really enjoyed our stay. We would stay there again. Only thing missing was a pool. The parking was the only other issue.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a lovely hotel. I had never stayed here before but I will return. Location is wonderful, just 2 blocks to Balboa Park, easy walking to many restaurants. Staff was wonderful, willing to help with anything you need.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely old hotel in a semi-residential San Diego neighborhood across from Balboa Park. I was traveling with kids so we got the two-bedroom with living room and kitchen, it was basically like having our own apartment. Everything was in perfect working order and the staff was friendly, professional, and helpful. The restaurant downstairs was a little […] fancy for our needs, but there are a couple of nice restaurants nearby and a good deli down the street. Easy to get to the Zoo. My 11-year-old son loved it. Don't know about public transportation but it's a short drive downtown to more restaurants and bars. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I really enjoy this hotel, I've stayed here for vacations as well as for work; it's in a good area across from Balboa Park and the place is a good mix of old and new. This is not a fancy hotel, but the historic factor and what they have done in the most recent renovations makes if a great place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We really liked this hotel. My children 14, 12 and 9 said this was their favorite hotel and it didn't even have a pool. The room was clean and bright and it felt good! They slept well! The staff was helpful! We would recommend this hotel to anyone!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good for family"
The hotel is in an old building, the hallways are old and need to be updated but the room was great. We had a 2 bedroom suite and it comfortably fit 3 adults and 3 kids. We had a refrigerator, microwave and the kitched came equipped with dishes, utensils, etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was good since we were there to go to […] the zoo but it's not really close to anything else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfort back in time"
We had a wonderful experience at this updated and modernized historical hotel. The only suggestion would be to improve the kitchen utensils for cooking convenience. Otherwise it rated a 5 for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great amenities, but noisy"
We loved the retro look and feel of the hotel, large bathroom, and kitchen was amazing, but it was very noisy. We were on the second floor right over the restaurant, and it was karaoke night. The windows are double-pane glass, so there is absolutely no sound buffer. It was also street-side, so there was traffic sounds as well. Thank goodness we played […] hard all day, so in the evening we put in our earplugs and were able to sleep through the noise. The staff was outstanding. Very helpful with any questions we had. Loved the proximity to Balboa Park. The complimentary continental breakfast was OK, but very little variety. We were there for 3 mornings and ate the same things each day. Would recommend, but make sure you request a room that isn't streetside. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"VERY NICE HOTEL"
This is a very nice hotel. Our room was quite a surprise with the art deco and contemporary deco. This hotel is close to Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo. Our ambient temp while there was 66 degrees. Wonderful restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Be sure to get on the sightseeing trolleys.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed here for my nephews graduation from MCRD. It was a 10 minute drive with the lights. The hotel has character. You can tell its old, but it's extremely clean and updated. The personnel were extremely heplful. Once you check in, they give you a visitor package with information on what to do and what to see in San Diego. The surrounding area is […] clean and Balboa Park is across the street. I will be staying here again. The complimentary breakfast is excellent to say the least.

"excellent hotel. excellent location"
wonderful stay, excellent hotel, wonderful recent renovations. my favorite san diego hotel, i cant imagine staying elsewhere in san diegoGenuine Expedia guest review
From the many TripAdvisor reviews, I was expecting a very nice but not quite top-rate hotel. In fact, I found this to be excellent in every respect. Check-in was easy, followed by a brief visit to the concierge who gave us a 'Welcome-pack' with maps, suggestions for visits, very useful information regarding the free trolley to Balboa Park, etc. The […] room was huge and beautifully appointed. All-new bathroom and small kitchen offered every amenity. The location, as so many reviews here have pointed out, is perfect for visiting all the museums and other attractions of Balboa Park. What is not mentioned is that the hotel is in a residential district, not a commercial one. As such, it is very quiet and safe. There are many restaurants within easy walking distance. I plan to return here on my next visit to San Diego, and I recommend the Inn to anyone seeking a perfectly-located comfortable and tranquil hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel with a great/terrible location."
The hotel was amazing in most ways. The staff was incredibly friendly, offering help before you can even ask! The room was clean, free of smells, the shower was spotless, etc. This hotel is also across the street from Balboa park and within walking distance to the San Diego Zoo (there is a nice walking path to it). The free continental breakfast was […] pretty nice, but very carb-heavy (we didn't care, but some people may). The view from the 7th floor rooftop restaurant is amazing too! The only downside to our stay was that one our first night there, there were 3-4 ambulances blaring their sirens between midnight and 8am. Then we had a free alarm at 10am when there was a car-crash about 15 feet from the hotel. This wouldn't have been a problem if the windows blocked out noise better; we actually thought the windows were open, but nope, they just don't block out noise. The second night was much quieter!

"Rebirth of an old gem"
This is an older hotel that has been and continues to be remodeled and upgraded to a grander standard. I've stayed here before the renovations and am overjoyed with the improvements. The restaurant is still iffy. Some things are good, others awful, but give them time. The bar and entertainment is great.Genuine Expedia guest review
