Why We Like It

  • Motel shell with retro flair and updated, stylish common areas.
  • A huge black-and-white photo in each room reflects the carefree Mediterranean lifestyle we should aim to mimic while on vacation.
  • Little Italy is as aromatic as it is picturesque and a nice change of pace from the (still-accessible) Gaslamp.

Great location, but I do want to say that it’s not the quietest spot. There was a lot of noise from employees and people around the area. Otherwise, the service is amazing. Everyone of the staff members is so nice.

The hotel got a little noisy at times but otherwise it was great. It was in a confident location and the staff was very nice as well.

Quick observation: The valet was friendly and professional that Concierge was friendly and professional. Unfortunately the room was tiny, not comfortable, we didn’t have hot water in the shower. Fresh towels were not brought to our room and had to be requested at the front desk. no closet no luggage stand. very cramped with low ceiling.
