There is nothing unique about this place, so don't be fooled by the cutesy advertising! It is just a typical hotel that needs to be updated! Plus when you arrive at the hotel be prepared for them not to let you check unless you pay them an additional $22.50/day as an amenity fee!! What amenites? A few bottles of water? A cup of coffee? What a rip off!!

Hi, Our amenity fee gives all of our guest unlimited access to a variety of amenities to elevate their experience which many guests have loved: daily "Afternoon Delights" which includes cupcakes and coffee from 3:30pm-6:30pm, bike rental, shuttle service Thursday-Sunday, 30MB's of upgraded internet speed, and unlimited coffee and bottled water. This is included in your total, just paid separately at the hotel. Thank you for staying with us and I hope we have the opportunity to welcome you again!

We stayed in the smallest room, which was the perfect room if you’re traveling alone or as a minimalist couple. The hotel itself and rooms were very clean, as they should be for a merely 3 year old hotel (at the time of this writing). The breakfast area was a bit crowded with bare minimums usual fare; muffins, toast, some fruit, juices, cereals, and yogurt. The price matched our expectations. The staff was pleasant, responsive, and helpful. The walls are a bit thin as you can hear people chatting through the night, so bring a a white noise device to help you sleep. The only problem we had was the lack of hot water the next morning so we were not able to take a shower before we left. (a quick overnight stay). Although the hotel engineer jumped right into addressing the issue, I'm somewhat disappointed this was not taken into further consideration upon our checkout. There is a mandatory charge of $20 to cover the amenities such as breakfast, coffee in the room, and any other little 'extras' they offer (various mobile transport through the city). We found this to be a pleasant enough stay in a decent area of the city.

Hi NeilM, Nice to see your review pop up here too. Thank you for trying us out for the quick stay! Being in the center of San Diego, we have a wonderful blend of travelers that visit us so the variety of room sizes has worked well for various travelers' preferences. We do have larger rooms and suites available too. Thankfully our breakfast has been popular so it does get crowded during peak times. We usually recommend coming down by 7:30am for the most available seating. We also fully understand the size of our lobby is smaller than others so we offer environmentally friendly, compostable takeaway containers to enjoy your breakfast anywhere you choose. You getting a good night's sleep is a top priority for us so I apologize if any other guests kept you awake. If you press the "Everything Button" on your room phone one of our team members will address any noise concerns. I apologize for the hot water issue in your room. For very different reasons I share a lot of your frustration. We never want this for any of our guests. There's also no denying it - the unusual weather for San Diego affected us recently. San Diego experienced much higher than average rain totals and had strong storms with hail. It's just not something that usually happens here. You and future guests can feel confident in staying with us though because we've already completed the thousands in preventative maintenance upgrades that were required as result of the recent storms. Having a blissful, relaxing experience in our rooms is the essence of our "Naked Experience" so the upgrade project will ensure a hot, steamy, pleasant experience going forward. Thank you for trying us out and I hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back to "America's Finest City"!

Great location, lots of night life. It can get loud on the weekend due to the location but didn't bother us.

Hi Melis, Gas lamp is awesome, isn't it?! We love the vibe here. Glad you still were as rested as can be after a fun night out here. In the future if you'd like a quieter option, we have inside facing rooms available. Thank you for staying with us!
