Great location in Little Italy! Farmers market, right outside the door on Saturday mornings. Lots of shops and restaurants to explore. Very close to the airport. Small garage with tight parking spots.

The location is magnificent. What fail to share is they have NO PARKING. I repeat NO PARKING. Do not drive there. The overnight parking they suggested was either no longer allows overnight or it doesn't exist.

The hotel is adjacent to many restaurants and is within walking distance to waterfront activities. The staff was quite helpful in getting us a taxi to the airport when departing. There are no dining facilities on-site but there is a cafe next door for a light snack..

Very nice property in the Little Italy neighborhood of San Diego; the rooms were a bit on the small side, but everything was within walking distance (nice restaurants and very close to the Embarcadero area).

The location is prime, as it’s in the middle of Little Italy. The rooms are a bit dated, and there’s a lot of noise at night (both from the building and from outside), but overall we liked it!
