Mediocre
Location wise, it is conveniently located near San Diego zoo, and is fairly priced. Otherwise, I don't recommend this hotel. The building and rooms are dated, and every nearby street corner has homeless camped out

Somewhat disappointed
Overall the hotel was good. Parking area very tight. The elevator was out of order, making it very difficult to get to the breakfast area and parking. Limited late checkouts.

Great hotel stay.
There was a little bit of road noise as it is in the city center but excellent stay. All staff were great and the location was ideal. Very clean rooms. I actually slept well which doesn’t always happen in hotels.
