La Pensione Hotel, San Diego
I did not enjoy this hotel. It is a great area but this hotel doesn't hold up. The bed was uncomfortable, the air conditioner would not stay at the temp I set, if there were ammenities the staff (which was less than welcoming) didn't tell me about them. Parking is difficult. I called to find out where I should park because the parking garage is not readily apparent. The woman who answered asked me what kind of car I was driving. I told here I was driving a Mustang. She said "Normally they don't allow cars like that as they are "'too large" but I we don't that many guests today, so I guess its fine." I found this to be unacceptable as when i entered the garage there were several cars larger than mine.. I found it doubly unacceptable when I returned after being out and there was full size pick up truck. I won't be staying here again. There are too many other options at better prices with friendlier staff and rooms that are more modern.

Horrible mattress!!
I really debated on how to rate this hotel. It was a great boutique hotel in the heart of Little Italy. It is walking distance to the harbor, Seaport Village, and many restaurants. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. They offer a daily voucher for coffee and pastry from cafe in hotel which was nice. Yes the room was rather small but that what you get with this type hotel so that was fine, however the beds were the most uncomfortable I have slept on in quite a while. We were very pleased with everything at the hotel except the bed. But since that the main reason to book a hotel is to sleep I guess I would have to say I would not book again. Having read other reviews I should have expected this.

Cozy and convenient
We were so pleased with the location of this hotel. They had the most charming farmer's market in front on Saturday and it was so fun to walk around and see all the booths. The front desk staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The room, although small, was really cozy. Only wish the bed was a little more comfy. Overall we will be back! Very pleasant stay!
