I am thrilled to share with you my experience at Pacific View Inn on May 6-9th. We checked in on May 6, check in was easy. Luis was extremely friendly and attentive. He said my room was ready and that I actually got the last ocean view double room. Keys were handed, we headed upstairs to room 210. The room was NOT what was pictured in the booking. The room in the booking featured not just the two double beds with pretty decorative pillows, but also a couch, a vanity area separate from the bath area, a balcony and a beautiful ocean view. I am attaching a photo for reference but, the room we got was a dingy double Queen with a tiny bathroom and a half window with a tiny view of the ocean. No balcony, no couch/lounging area. No pretty decorative pillows. Don’t be fooled by the beautiful brightly lit rooms in the photos either! The light fixtures inside are poor quality and hardly provide any light. I pushed it to the back of my mind and figured the room was simply bigger in photos as usual and got ready for the evening. The next morning (Friday May 7 about 9am) I go downstairs to the front desk to ask for an iron, as there was NOT one in the room, and as I walk in, the girl at the front desk with curly/frizzy hair, black rings and hair a strange yellow hue completely ignores me. It takes her about 1 minute from the moment I entered for her to acknowledge me standing in front of her. She looked completely bothered by the fact that I was there. I asked for an iron and she said she would bring it back to my room. I get a call from her 25 minutes later. Our conversation goes exactly like this, word for word: she says “hi, my name is ____ calling from Pacific View Inn. I just wanted to let you know that regarding the iron you requested, they’re all being used right now and I have none left.So I just wanted you to know that” I’m super confused like what in the world does she mean she doesn’t have an iron?? Lol. I said “ok... so can I get one as soon as it gets returned, or can you go get one from someone who’s done using it or how does it work?” She says “well if I remembered which rooms have one i would but I don’t. Sorry about that” at this point I’m super confused. This hotel listed an Iron as one of the amenities, and I had luggage full of wrinkled dresses. I was NOT happy. I said, “this hotel lists an iron on their website, in fact I was expecting one to be in the room and there isn’t. I really need that iron.” She says, “COOLBEANS. Thanks.” And hangs up!!!!!! I am not making this up. After this encounter with this crazy front desk lady, I was fuming. I have NEVER been treated with so much attitude, rudeness and indifference in my life. This is the part where I go on the website to make sure I’m not crazy, and the hotel does list amenities that were not made available. I then run into the photos of the room I booked and finally realize that my room is nothing like what they advertise. I was in PB to celebrate my birthday, not to get Into an argume
My wife and I, along with my oldest daughter and her husband stayed at Ocean Park last week. We had rooms next to each other on the 3rd floor with ocean views (which I recommend). Naturally we're in the midst of covid restrictions and all that implies. Having said that... The rooms were great! A lot of thought has gone into even small details of the room design. One of those small details is the light switch on each side of the bed is easy to reach and you don't have to go searching for an outlet for your phone charger. As a matter of fact, the outlets have 2 USB ports. There was a refrigerator in our room. There was also a pull-out couch. The shower pressure wasn't going to penetrate your skin, but was adequate. Compliments of covid, you have to go down to the desk to order new towels to be delivered to your room. That isn't exclusive to this hotel -- that's standard operating procedure these days. The 'continental' breakfast consisted of a sealed paper bag with an apple, orange, a bottle of water and something else. The desk has them and you have to ask for it. They also have discounts for military and old farts like myself. Everyone, from the manager to the other desk personnel were very friendly. There is a 7-11 and other stores easily within walking distance from the hotel. The parking will cost you $20.00 per day. It's in an underground parking garage and you can load your luggage and take it up the elevator. The view of the ocean and the sound of the ocean when you leave your patio door open is outstanding. Unfortunately the sound of the local homeless population is something we contended with. Beginning early in the morning they are loud (and sometimes profane). They homestead along the wall below. They can be entertaining at times however. One guy we referred to as, 'Captain Jack Sparrow' had a pirate hat, a red cape and black boots like you would wear to a costume party. When we mentioned it to hotel management they said to be sure to contact them when that happens and they will call the police to deal with it. Might want to keep that in mind. Most of the local 'entertainment' are pretty non-intrusive. They pretty much keep to themselves and don't do cat calls at your wife and daughters. They didn't do any cat calls or whistle at me either. I may not have been there type. Seriously, aside from the early morning noise (I can only assume they are all mostly deaf and that's why they have to yell when they talk), they weren't much of a factor. There are beachside shops all along the walkway to shop at. Fun to shop at. The bottom line is, the next time we visit San Diego you can bet we'll be staying at Ocean Park Inn if available. If not for the noisy early morning chatter I would have given them a 5 rating. I will enclose some photos. Keep in mind the room was much neater before we started to 'live' in it. It's much nicer than the photos of the room would suggest.
We stayed here in July 2020 and the room was just as clean then as it was this week when we stayed again. The biggest problem was when we went to take a shower there was no towels. When I called to get towels I felt like I was on speakerphone and not being heard very well. The gentleman had me on hold for several minutes and then I got disconnected. I never got towels delivered to my room and we ended up having to dry off with 1 face cloth and hand towel after our shower before bed. We heard some people talking a little loud outside right before bed but figured it would die down. Ended up getting louder and louder outside our door. And then about 3:00 in the morning I heard a gentleman‘s voice very stern outside these people doors telling them to knock it off, they already been warned and must go in their room and quiet down. I was very impressed with the professionalism and stern voice he used. It was completely quiet after that. So I may not of gotten towels for a shower but room was very clean and they took care of the partiers down the hall. What more could you ask for? I would stay again. Probably sooner than later.
This hotel is really recommended. I go to San Diego many times because I live in Los Angeles. I have basically stayed in various hotels. I have also stayed in many Airbnb by the sea. The quality of Airbnb in the United States is generally uneven and unclean. I still like to stay in a hotel. The location of this hotel is near Mission Bay and not around the main attractions, but San Diego itself is small and safe, so it doesn't matter. The hotel facilities are very good. The suites I live in have simple kitchens. It is very convenient to travel with children. The room is large and the view is very good. It is very suitable for traveling with children
One block from the stunning Pacific Ocean, this motel in San Diego's Pacific Beach neighborhood offers relaxing facilities and friendly services in an ideal location.Beach Haven Inn features an outdoor pool and whirlpool tub in the center courtyard. Guests can cook a meal in the outdoor barbecue area or in the full kitchen in their spacious studio or suite.Guests at the Beach Haven can walk along the beach or explore the Crystal Pier, which is only 4 blocks from the motel. The nearby Pacific Beach boardwalk boasts 5 km of restaurants, shops and nightclubs.
This is located a block away from the beach and you can walk to restaurants, shops, and the beach and it's perfect. It is nice and clean and Jim and Alpha will take very good care of you as they couldn't be more helpful. Go on the roof patio to watch the sun rise and set and to see the seagulls and feel the sea breeze. It's simple and nice and perfect if you like to venture out and come back to a comfy bed and a nice shower.

SeaWorld San Diego is 4.3 km from Beach Bungalow Hostel San Diego, while University of San Diego is 6 km from the property. The nearest airport is San Diego International Airport, 9 km from the property.
I think this is a perfect location in San Diego. It's in PB, but a few blocks off Garnet. So it's not loud all night, but still very close to accessing everything by foot. While it's not ocean front, It's only steps from the beach. If I really strained, I technically could see the ocean from my window. ha. I was staying here alone and felt safe the entire time. The manager (I think) Jim, is awesome! One of the friendliest interactions with hotel staff and he made an extra effort to accommodate my early check in after I had a very unpleasant night at a different hotel and ended up leaving that hotel and driving around all night.
The rooms are nice and clean and come with all the basics that you'd need.
I will note that you have to check in at the "sister hotel" and not Pacific Shores Inn. Again, not a big deal for me, but I can see this might be an annoyance to those that like everything at their finger tips. It's one short block away and actually I find having the check in at a different hotel kind of nice. It meant that at 11am and 3pm, there wasn't an influx of people parking randomly to check in and out... because they were doing that at the other hotel. The only advise I can give to the hotel is that it's not overly clear that you check in at a different location until you arrive and see the sign on what would be the lobby. This information definitely should be obviously displayed blatantly upon booking. Big bold print or something at the top of your confirmation email. Probably would save even the the staff some headaches of dealing with phone calls.
The ONLY down side to this hotel is that there is a bit of a musky smell. I have stayed at the PB Surfside Inn (their sister location) a few times before and experienced the same thing. I have only stayed at these two hotels in PB, so maybe this is a normal part of being this close to the beach? I really don't know. I do live close to the ocean myself, but in a much colder climate, so I don't have the experience at home. But it does seem like it's a moisture/humidity issue that could possibly be dealt with via better ventilation? Again, I'm no expert on the topic. And given that I'm a repeat customer, it obviously does not bother me too much. Just worth mentioned if you have any sort of sensitivities to such things.
I will 100% return to one of their hotels.
Location, balcony overlooking the Pacific, slept with the roar of the ocean, control how much you want to hear it with your sliding patio door. Pool very relaxing. Woodys on the boardwalk for lunch or breakfast, El Prez, Flamingo Deck, World Famous, Truckstop, all close with great food and drink. Perfect locale for Pacific Beach walking, Very Clean rooms, attentive personnel texting or calling to see if my stay was perfect. Front desk clerk awesome. This is my 3rd stay at the Surfer, and will do it again when I can.
We booked a partial ocean view and could not have been more pleased with our room. We were close to the pool and worried a little about the noise level at night but the staff promptly at 10pm turned off the fire pit and kindle starting letting people know it was quiet time. So the night was quiet, the room clean and the bed super cozy! We rented bikes for $5.00 an hour and the manager himself went out and helped us! Everyone was nice and helpful and acted like they were glad we were there. We will definitely be coming back!

Great location near the gaslamp, parking on scene is a big nope but there is a great structure nearby called "park it on market" I was able to park before checking in for a one night stay and get in my car the next afternoon for $16 total, well worth it. Check in was fun asf, free house bevvy to start the experience is absolutely my vibe, and standard drink prices were decent for the setting, love Love LOVE the games and general house party vibe. The room, was.... Tiny, and guess what? Still more comfy than the hoody your ex won't give back. Can see that the design is meant for people who have more in life happening then the square footage of their room. Perfect for a couple nights though I can see it getting weird on a long term stay. No view expect some weird lights in the main corridor, but if not for those lights I daresay i might have spotted some flesh from another persons room, so smart design choice there. No breakfast makes me sad, I wouldn't have eaten it anyway but I want my money's worth you know??? (gotta love that some people won't read the sarcasm there.) But considering the amount of local places to grab any kind of grub you could wish upon a star, I think most will be able to survive not being served a buffet of cheap over touched food. will be back!
The location of this hotel is average. There is still a certain distance from la jolla beach, which takes more than ten minutes by car. I thought it was by the sea before, but I found out that it wasn't. The efficiency of the hotel front desk is relatively slow, and it took a long time to check in. The hotel facilities are relatively old and have a certain age. The overall experience is very average
Enjoy the atmosphere here at the hotel with with staff /management. Always greeted you with a big smile /rooms always looking good and a comfortable stay /enjoy your Continental breakfast. Staying here is easy and convenient location. It has close freeway access / walking distance to restaurants / liquor stores.safe location.
I recently stayed her with my partner while in town for a family event. I arrived right at midnight and the front desk agent (Joseph) went to check me in and he couldn’t find my reservation. He said that I arrived just at the precise time when reservations turn over in their system and I was probably marked as a no-show. I actually have had this issue before so I knew of what he spoke and he explained that he would have to essentially create a new rez for me and that would be faster than trying to extract my original rez out of the system. He recognized my Ambassador status and I am sure could sense that after a full day or traveling I was ready to get to my room. He was quite apologetic, gave me some free waters and soda while I waited, comped my parking fee and upgraded me to their largest suite on the executive club floor. All without me having to ask and really without me even complaining. (I think I looked really tired!!!) The room was spacious with a separate living area, huge bathroom and nice, comfortable bed. They had an executive lounge on the top floor that was open during our entire time and the bartender and concierge who staffed it all weekend were friendly, helpful and the food was good and free drinks are always appreciated. The housekeeping was thorough and all-in-all it was a great stay and exactly what I want from a full service Marriott.
We are Marriott loyalist and were very happy with our stay here. First rate operation. To be fair, our impressions are based on Bonvoy Titanium status (freebies) which may bring out the best in the place. Highlights: - Extremely friendly and service oriented staff throughout--front desk, DEN restaurant, housekeeping. - Modern (remodeled) rooms. Exceptionally clean. - Daily housekeeping without asking! - Very nice public spaces, including the pool area. Something of a resort oasis in the urban area of Mission Valley. - A very convenient location. 5-20 minutes to everywhere. So very possible to stay here, have dinner at any of the tourist places, and be back quickly. A significant cost savings over downtown. (There are also lots of breweries about 5-7 minutes away). Other notes: - The only pre-COVID amenity not functioning is the "M Lounge" is not open. That said, status members are offered a free breakfast buffet daily (otherwise $22/pp) in the DEN restaurant. The staff at breakfast is particularly friendly and accommodating. - Modest upgrade from a "city view" to "pool view" for the stay. Was appreciated. There appeared to be a suite on the top floor, yet not sure how many floors may have one/what the quantity of potential suite upgrade rooms might be. - 2 of 3 elevators in service. For much of our stay, occupancy was fairly low, so didn't much matter. On the couple peak days (a convention arrived) not having the third elevator became a minor nuisance. - Plenty of parking (has a garage). Could debate the separate parking charge, yet appeared the norm in Mission Valley and hotel is transparent about it. There is some street parking and office parks nearby if one truly objects. Very happy with our stay and unequivocally recommended as a very nice place to stay in San Diego.
stayed at the location because it is adjacent to the convention center, where I had to attend a meeting. I arrived at 6pm & there 5 people in line ahead of me to checkin. Initially only 2 staff (surprising given size of property), but after a while, a 3rd person came. My time in line was 20 minutes, more than the time I had to wait for luggage at airport or taxi ride to location. Once 3rd person arrived (manager), line moved quickly. Room was clean, nice view of the bay. Toilet has water saving capacity, but I was surprised that the room did not have the blue Marriott recycle trash bin. I did like the night light in the bathroom- didn't have to use my laptop powercord light. I was there on weekend, so M club closed. They give you a $15.00 credit, but the only on site sit down restaurant was buffet only- $32.00- so breakfast would still cost $17.00. You can use credit at Starbucks, but that only gets you oatmeal & coffee. They should do better on weekends. Check out was easy. Again, only 5-10 minute walk from convention center.
Great location, and very friendly helpful staff. Hotels here are pricey for the quality of the rooms. Biggest issue was having booked a suite with a “partial view”, but the room was the closest to the street ground level and the view was the main road and the side of a motor home parking spot (with a motor home). We had our adult son with us sleeping on the pull out sofa, the mattress was literally springs covered with a sheet - I could put my hand under the metal wire almost. Desperately needs replacing with a mattress that is possible to use. Second night he just slept on the sofa cushions. On the positive side, the breakfast (not included) was good, and view of the marina on the non street side was really nice. Pool and jacuzzi looked good too. Parking is extra cost. I always dislike leaving critical reviews because we liked the staff … but value for money here didn’t cut it.
It's still a very recommended hotel. The valet front desk and waiter have a good attitude, but Ctrip said that it is with breakfast, but in fact the hotel only packs 16 yuan, and 16 yuan can't order anything in it, and there are very few choices of dishes. I stayed for three years. Two people have tasted 6 kinds of them every day, and they are not good. If the waiter asks you for coffee or orange juice, if you don’t want to drink it, don’t ask for it, because it is charged, and a cup is 7 yuan. There is a Starbucks in the hotel that can be bought directly. The key restaurant The service attitude of the black woman at the door was extremely poor for three days, and the racial discrimination was serious. There was an Asian (like a Korean) with an accent, and then she pretended not to understand, and asked the room number several times. Other than that, I heard that she couldn't understand. Besides, the speed of breakfast is very slow, and you will not be able to come out without 40 minutes. There is also a mandatory facility fee charged by the hotel. I have to print the bill when I am in the room because I said I didn’t receive the email at all. The parking fee can’t be swiped at 45 per night for the room card, 39 per night with the room card, and 69 per night for the valet, which is not cheap. I chose the city view room. The scenery is very good, the facilities in the room are very new, the room is very transparent and very comfortable to live in. On the first night when I went to bed, I heard a strange noise in the room and called someone to check it and said that it was the sound of the pipeline and changed us to a room, tossing By twelve o'clock, I slept soundly,
We loved the location. Family of four with 2 kids ages 9 & 10 loved the different pools and husband and I enjoyed the fire pits by the pool. The rooms were modern and up to date. The beds were not comfortable and the lack of pillows made it hard to sleep for someone who is used to minimum of 2 pillows per person. The views were amazing and a lot of exploring to do around the resort.
The price of the hotel is very satisfying. The hotel that was opened on the 2nd street last time is more than 1,000. The parking space is very tight and it takes 20 knives a night. Fortunately, there are more parking lots nearby.
Well I stayed for a couple of nights at the good night inn and over all it was an ok place the location was great the rooms were clean but the service was bad I had a pipe burst in my room and it smelled like rotten old drain sewage like literally **** and instead of moving me rooms which they did have available because I seen multiple rooms open they kept me in the same room and made me sit outside for hours to do a half ass pipe fixing job which had my room still smell gross and they were rude and uncaring I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND STAYING HERE CUZ THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THERE GUESTS
The location is great, in the gaslamp quarter. About half an hour walk from the famous Balboa Park. It is not too far from the port of San Diego. Many bars and restaurants downstairs. Good is very convenient, and bad is very noisy at night. The choice for nightlife is right here. The music downstairs is a lot of Latin and there are street bands. Okay.
The staff were very welcoming. Will organize a city tour.
Breakfast is average, no milk.
The decoration is very unique, the patio is very warm, but unfortunately there is no time to enjoy.
Washing clothes one dollar at a time, drying one dollar.
Would consider here if I return.
American breakfast is nothing to eat, the room is small, we are twin rooms, there is no space for extra beds, but the bed is full, with two children no problem. The entrance to the room is the marina, which is no more than 5 meters apart. It is convenient to park from the lobby to your own row. On the other side of the hotel, crossing the road is the port, just to see a destroyer leaving the port, and two sea stallion helicopters flying over, many people are fishing. The hotel has two swimming pools with a matching spa pool. A big one is deep and small is suitable for children to play.
The hotel is really good and the location is quite good. The grade is absolutely no problem, the landscape is quite good. More generally, the surrounding area is not convenient, there is no other surrounding, the landscape along the coastline, but since you have chosen this scenery, the surrounding is not good. It must be criticized that the reservation did not say that there is a need for RESORT FEE, nearly 40 dollars, parking for 36 dollars. This price is totally different. A little foolish feeling.
The hotel is not far from the aircraft carrier park, 15 minutes by car. On the edge of the hotel is a seaport where the yacht is moored. It is beautiful. Room facilities are better and newer, but there are mosquitoes. Parking is underground and free. The beaches of San Diego are beautiful and worth more than Santa Monica Beach. With time, San Diego is a place worth two days.
I booked this hotel through a Southwest Airlines package deal. When I got to the hotel at 5:15 on Friday 2/18/22 I found out why they don't have a desk clerk on site after dark. This place is the absolute worst hotel in San Diego. It is apparent that it used to be a "half way house" for alcoholics and ex-cons to stay as they try to get their lives together. I'm pretty sure a couple of the people that I talked to as I was trying to find my "room" are permanent residents at the "hotel". Although the website says it is in the Little Italy area, the actual location is in a really nasty part of the neighborhood. The "hotel" is in the flight path to the airport, and gets a lot of noise from the Hwy 5 freeway and a trolley line. No hotel parking, you have to park on the streets next to homeless tents. I will admit that I didn't read the fine print on my reservation, but they booked me into a tiny "room" sharing a bunk bed and a bathroom with a guy that I'm pretty sure lives there full time. Some other guests that I talked to while trying to "check in" said they had private rooms to themselves but they had to share bathroom and showers. If you're a twenty year old German kid hitchhiking around the USA this might be an acceptable "hotel" but for most of the rest of us, it is absurd. I phoned the only number for the hotel, left a message I was cancelling, and booked a Best Western. I doubt that this Found "hotel" will give me a refund, but I am not going to spend a night sharing a bunk bed and a bathroom with a stranger..
My husband and I have stayed at this hotel several times as we can walk on Shelter Island, go to great seafood places ( Mitch's and Point Loma Seafood) as well as a great happy hour menu/drinks at Miguels down the street. All of these points of interest are within walking distance. Oh, there are plenty of coffee shops near by as well and it is close to the airport.
We were in San Diego for one of our very best friends’ wedding and chose this hotel since it was nearby and our preference is Marriott. Our stay was wonderful; we found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. The front desk staff to be very friendly and always helpful. I’d like to make special note of Tiffany, who went above and beyond. From the moment we called to request the shuttle (and early check in since we had just arrived from the east coast), she took exceptionally good care of us - promptly, proficiently and always with a smile. When we mentioned that it was my birthday and we had a nice evening planned, she thoughtfully took a birthday card and goodie bag to our room as a surprise. Unfortunately she was already off duty when we returned to the room to see it, but her extra kind gesture was much appreciated. As someone that exemplifies Marriott’s core values (putting people first, pursuing excellence, embracing change, acting with integrity and serving our world - found on Marriott website), if there is another way I can submit her for an award please let me know. Thank you!
We stayed here when we traveled to SD for a grandchild's birthday, and from the moment we arrived to check-in to when we checked out several days later, the staff was very personable and attentive. I can't say enough good things particularly about Reggie, the front desk manager. He was extremely helpful any time we had a question or request, and greeted us warmly every time he saw us. We witnessed him greeting other guests just as warmly and friendly. Parking was a bit expensive, but customary and as expected for this area. The room and bathroom was very nice with plenty of room to spread out and supplies well-stocked. A full line of breakfast items, both hot and cold, were offered every day, and there is also a small 24-hour convenience area with snacks, toiletries, drinks, and a microwave. We did not take advantage of the pool area or workout room, although both were available. I loved the openness of the large lobby and pool area, with glass roll-up doors in between so you can enjoy the beautiful outdoor area even from the inside on cooler days. All in all, we had a great stay here, and will likely book here again on our next trip!
Confirmation # 3255414081 Confirmation # 3250340798 Upon arrival on 4/11/22, I was given an early check-in of about 2pm instead of the usual 3pm, as I had to put my bags away and dash to a meeting across town. I was operating on no sleep in the last 24hrs as I just completed filming in Los Angeles and drove the 2.5 hrs to San Diego. I went to my room and left my bags. I was leaving to get to my meeting and as I opened the door, the hall smelled of pee. Further down the hall was a woman walking two dogs. She stopped right before the elevator at the ice machine, where one of the dogs relieved himself. It was disgusting to see. After four hours of meetings, I returned to the hotel. Exhausted, all I wanted to do was sleep, as I had a video shoot at 6am in Del Mar. After showering, I laid down to sleep. I was shocked to hear DOGS barking. I realized the noise was coming from room 541. The room right next to me, 543. I blasted the TV set the timer and tried to sleep while blocking out the barking. At 4am I was awakened by the continuous noise of the two dogs barking. I showered and left. As I walked by the room next to me with the dogs, the dogs would bark excessively and nonstop. It is so wrong to allow barking dogs to disturb visitors, it is worse when you check-in and are staying four days and never are told your room will be next to the woman with two barking dogs that pee in the hall. On Wednesday around 11am, I asked the gentleman at the desk a few questions. If my room could be cleaned and to ensure I had fresh towels. He said, "absolutely!" When I returned around 630pm, I had no towels and the room had not been cleaned. I called the front desk to find out what had happened and they said they didn't know. They sent a young man with sheets (yes I changed the bedding myself) then he made another trip to get me fresh towels. Again, I had to deal with the barking from the room next to me at night and in the morning. At 9am today 2/14/22, housekeeping was knocking on the door even though I had the DO NOT DISTURB SIGN ON THE DOOR. I found this rude and disrespectful and made up my mind to shower and leave early. This was the most DISGUSTING hotel by Hilton I had ever stayed in. The service is poor, the communication to guests does not exist and the smell of pee is sickening. I will never stay at this hotel again and I will advise friends and family to stay away. James Walton (818)517-5958
This is a nice, clean hotel with a beautiful social area and pool in the center. The room was very nice and surprisingly quiet. The parking is cheap for the area at $12/day. The bed was even comfortable. I would give it 5 stars BUT the restaurant was closed, the parking lot is in rough shape and, at the time, there was no place to eat at within a few miles on a Sunday afternoon except McDonalds. To nitpick, the kid sized bathtub was unexpected, and a little strange. IF everything were to open back up in the area and they repaved the parking, it would be a nice resort in the northern San Diego area.
We have always received great service and an excellent breakfast. Yes parking can be a little crowded but for its location and cost it is well worth it. Easy access to the freeway. The staff is great and friendly and willing to help. Due to COVID the rooms are not cleaned on a regular basis during your stay, but that is not a real problem. If you run out of soap etc the front desk is always there to help you. Never had a problem and have staed there several times.

The Hotel Indigo Gaslamp is located on the eastern edge of the Gaslamp District. It’s only a few blocks away from the hubbub on 5th Avenue while also being just removed enough to avoid the late-night club and bar noise over there. The property is also just a few blocks north of the Padres’s baseball stadium. I had a fabulous time drinking cocktails on the rooftop deck while peering into the stadium. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful (especially a gentleman named David, if I remember correctly), and the property itself is in good shape for a hotel in a popular big-city neighborhood. My room was on the 6th floor facing west, and the view was wonderful. Those who are unfamiliar with San Diego should know that the Gaslamp District has a visible and disheartening concentration of homelessness. As a city dweller myself, I am unfortunately accustomed to such sights and didn’t feel unsafe. But it is something to be aware of before reserving a room anywhere in the Gaslamp District. Another heads-up: Traffic around the hotel is a nightmare before and after Padres games. You’ll definitely need to plan any car travel (e.g., to and from the airport) accordingly. Check out The Broken Yolk for breakfast and Lotus Thai for cheap yet tasty Thai food. I’ll definitely consider staying here again during future trips to San Diego.
While searching for a home to buy, my wife and I stayed in this hotel for 2 months. The staff was very friendly and helpful, responding to all of our needs. They try to make you feel as if you are family visiting their home. Their accomodations are very comfortable and clean, both inside and out. I enjoyed working outdoors by the pool, in addition to staying in the room. The WIFI worked great both inside and outside. In addition, the location is great! Next door to a shopping center with a large grocery store, several restaurants and a fast food court. Two miles down the road is a Target, other smaller stores and restaurants. Sonesta ES Suites in Sorento Mesa was a great place to stay. I look forward to returning.
Hotel Iris is an older hotel, and you get what you pay for. I booked it for 5 nights for a family visit. The value is very good for the location. Everything went well until the 2nd night, when the hotel's wi-fi went out. I called the front desk and they said they were working on it. The next day the wi-fi was still out. I talked with a manager and he said they had contacted Cox Cable twice. I actually met the cable guy at the front desk and he said they had to call another cable repairman. The wi-fi was still out for another night -- so I cancelled my last 2 nights and moved to another (more expensive) hotel in Mission Valley. It took a few phone calls to get a refund for the final two nights, because I had made the booking through Booking.com. I had to call them first, and then call the hotel. I finally got the refund to my credit card about two weeks later -- it took a while, but the hotel gave me no argument. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Hotel Iris again, as long as they keep their wi-fi working! Minor downsides: At the time of my visit, the vending machines weren't working. Also, the single ice machine is located inside the gated pool area, so I had to ask for help to open the gate after hours.
Overall, I'd give the hotel a 6 out of 10 rating. The property was nice, centrally located, clean, and I'd definitely book it again in the future. There were a few things that were inconvenient, such as the laundry room was unavailable, the breakfast room is closed until further notice, and the service was a little slow, but other than those few negatives, our stay was peaceful and enjoyable!
Opposite the hotel is Best Buy, Messi's home store, super cost-effective for self-driving. There is a Starbucks in the hotel lobby. It's not far away, there is a gas station in front of the hotel. The parking fee is said to be expensive. We parked directly at the gas station entrance, as long as it is not on the red line, many cars are parked overnight.
We booked into a garden room in the Bahia for 5 nights. The first room they showed us was awful! Small dark, on the ground floor with the doors opening onto the road directly opposite the reception. It was literally 2 yards from the passenger drop off outside and there were no net curtains! After speaking to reception they kindly upgraded us to a second floor studio which was much nicer. As we were staying for 5 nights, it was a shame the hotel didn’t allocate us a reasonable room in the first place! The hotel itself is beautifully clean, the beach is well maintained and the restaurant was very good. We paid for a trip around the bay on the Bahia Belle which was lovely. There is a short walk to mission beach and a few restaurants and bars. Now a few negatives- the hotel didn’t clean our room for 5 days and we had to request clean towels. There was an offer to change the bed but it was at 5pm and we were getting ready to go out. It wasn’t the end of the world but it’s an expensive hotel and despite COVID restrictions surely it must be possible for the rooms to be cleaned? The only other issue we had was the noise disturbance in the room - one morning (4am) a street cleaning vehicle drove up and down, other days there were deliveries, guests leaving, doors slamming. Whilst we didn’t expect complete silence this hotel did seem to be very noisy in the early morning. If this is going to be an issue I suggest a room at the back of the hotel.
