Quirky hotel from what I imagine was the golden age in San Diego. Reasonable price although not budget. Centrally located with easy access to many of the sites including Old Town. The room was clean and nice sized but the bathroom was very small. The room has a refrigerator but no microwave, It took some searching but I did finally locate ample outlets (hint, they are behind the night stand) The fitness center was small with only 3 machines. It has free parking (which many hotels in the area don't have) My biggest issue was the noise. There is absolutely no soundproofing between rooms or on the outside walls. I was there for 7 nights and luckily only 2 of the nights did I have neighbors who were noisy and I always travel with earplugs. The Waffle Spot had great breakfasts. The Amigo Spot was a decent Mexican restaurant with very good fried ice cream and huge margaritas (during happy hour 4-7 you have upgrade to flavored for $1 more....I recommend the mango). The front desk staff were extremely helpful and as a nice touch every afternoon they place a flavored water in the lobby. I also recommend the cookies they have ($1). I'd stay there again.
