Little Italy Gem
I would most definitely recommend this site because it’s location, location, location. It is literally around the corner from great cafes and delicious eaters, some of the best in San Diego. The staff is extremely helping, caring and empathetic, as such they are very good at listening for details and love to fix a situation even if it is not their fault. They want your loyalty. Close to the airport and freeway access, the Found Hotel is a gem among larger established chains. I would say, better than the Westin. Bon Voyage

Perfect for our needs!
We loved this place! We stayed in a two bedroom suite, which is very clean and roomy. The place is quite old but very well kept. It's within walking distance of many cool attractions, restaurants and bars. There is no parking, so you do have to drive around and look for a spot where you can park overnight, but this wasn't too big of an issue for us. We were able to park under the freeway, and then, on the street overnight. We never could figure out how to have the fan on without having the light on with the remote, in our room. If we were staying another night, we would have asked how to make it work. The AC in the main room worked fine though. We would love to stay here again!

Best staff
The staff there is absolutely the best, super friendly and helpful. I love the feel of the hotel, it’s a fixed up older building but very clean and well taken care of. Also, the fact that it’s in the heart of Little Italy in San Diego is always fun.

Very Good 8.0
Great hotel - but ask for earplugs.
Very nice and clean hotel. The staff was very friendly, informative and very helpful . Location is right at Little Italy with lots of restaurants. Unfortunately the location next to the highway and a busy street as well as flights overhead landing at the airport makes the location very noisy. We had a room out to the street and wished we had brought earplugs. Was told there are earplugs available at the reception, but didn’t know until we checked out. Our friends had a room away from traffic and had a peaceful night.
