Terrible Customer Service
We didn't end up staying. I accidentally made a reservation for a wrong date and when I tried to correct it they refused to waive the cost for the night and then I decided not to book again for the correct date for obvious reasons. TERRIBLE customer service. Hope it was worth it for them.

Location awesome comfort not so great.
Great location! Charming historical hotel. However, the beds were super uncomfortable and the room was super noisy. Also it cost $45 a night to park so plan on spending that extra money.

The Horton is Top Shelf !!!
I was visiting family in San Diego, CA recently and wanted to stay in the Gaslamp Quarter. I chose the Horton Hotel and was not disappointed in any capacity. The staff was friendly, the bartender was great and the bellhop was super. My room was spectacular, I loved the desk and TV area and the beds were really comfortable. The room service was fast and the meals were really tasty. I would definitely go back.
