Gaslamp Hostel

Jennifer Rivera-Nichols 1/5 just now on Google I arrived with my mom to check in at this worst San Diego hostel at 1am...ridiculously exhausted. My mom had just paid to park 2 blocks away and we carried armfuls of belongings with us to the hostel. When we arrived, the clerk was like, ”Reservation?” like my mom was speaking Greek. She said nothing and just walked away. Minute later the owner came in and told my mom that I was not allowed to stay there because I'm under 18. She was talking to my mom like a bully. My mom explained to the owner that our room was already paid for, that she had booked it thru hotels.com as a minor + adult, and that it was 1am already...we're exhausted and where else are we gonna get a room at that hour. I kept falling asleep on their staircase during this time because I was so tired. The lady was arguing with my mom about their rules. Meanwhile, the clerk keeps saying to my mom, ”She's just trying to help you.” That's a lie. If they wanted to help, they could have...but they did not. After a heated conversation, the owner says she will allow me to stay. I was relieved. Then 3 seconds later I just heard her tell my mom, ”Nevermind. I don't like your attitude. You need to get off my property.” WTH Really? This mean lady was gaslighting my mom, bullying her, and was mad at us for just for walking thru the door. She could have approached my mom saying, ”Hi, I'm So-and-So, the owner. It looks like there is a discrepancy with your booking. Because we have shared bathrooms here, we don't allow children. I know it's 1am, and hearing this is really stressful, but let's see what we can do to figure this out. Would you be able to accompany your daughter to the bathroom?” Instead she treated my mom really bad like she had done something wrong. We've stayed at plenty of hostels. None of them had a policy saying I could not be there. I was starting to feel really scared that I would not have a place to sleep since I heard my mom on the phone trying to find a new hotel. They were all full or $300. This Gaslamp Hostel owner is anti-children, anti-family, and made me feel like I had caused my mom so much hassle :-( After we wasted an hour trying to check in and get our money back, I tried to cheer my mom up. I was hugging her while she sat on the phone with hotels.com. I told her I could sleep in the car so she would not have to spend more money or be more stressed, but my mom said it's not safe to sleep in the car, and she didn't know where we could park to do that anyway. My mom was crying when we left. We ended up sleeping in a gross motel smoking room. I saw a bug on the table when we walked in. The owner of this cheap San Diego hotel is not a human being. All the next day, my mom was depressed and sad. This occurrence really ruined our entire weekend. Gaslamp Hostel reviews San Diego. Worst San Diego hostel. Downtown San Diego hostel nightmare. NOT the best San Diego hostel--total nightmare. Disaster. Horror story. TripAdvisor Ga

San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter

Downtown San Diego San Diego|0.77km from city centre
The hotel and surroundings are nice. It’s located in a busy street with a modern decor. However the receptionist’s attitude is very questionable. I am a customer from China and a bonvoy member. Marriott has always been my go-to hotel of choice from China to Paris to Singapore. I booked the hotel thru Expedia . I wasn’t feeling so well physically and after a long journey I just want to have a good rest in my “known” hotel of choice. First I was waiting properly in the line and when it was my turn I gave my passport to the receptionist Ara.B. She rudely told me that there’s no reservation under your name, and while I was checking my confirmation email on the side panicking (not blocking the queue), she still asks me to move further away. from that moment I sensed a little bit of hostility towards me (I didn’t know if it was my race or my passport). I made the booking early today with my buddy’s computer so I thought I might book it under his name or had the wrong booking date. I called my buddy when it is already passed midnight and I approached the receptionist meanwhile Ara.B and asked her if the booking name was my buddy Edison or my booking can be some other day. She immediately condescendingly gazed upon me and rudely said said if you booked wrong day you can only contact Expedia (bear that in mind) they can not do anything for me and if it was under another person’s name they couldn’t release that information to a stranger and you won’t be able to check in. It turns out I found it on my phone that my booking was for another day.From the head start I sensed that this lady doesn’t really want me to stay there. She told me my only option is to book it at a walk-in rate which is almost twice as much the rate on Expedia. As I was on the side tried to look for my own hotel. She told me that no hotel takes later than midnight booking. That is so not true because there are many sites that allow you the option to book from now til the same day after midnight. She came around claiming she was helping and me told me that if you go to another hotel you probably just gonna get rejected like here. That she knows the hotels in San Diego well. I then started to question her I had my experience on booking at this hour and if I did have a booking for a different day while did she tell me you don’t have no booking and told me to step aside. Right after these two questions which I asked politely she said I am violating her and asked to leave the property otherwise she’s going to call the security on me 🤨 my defends to her I only expressed my prospective there was no other customers waiting in line no more and I am a incoming customer I shouldn’t be treated and throw out like that. Then she started prevaricating saying that my phone was too far away nobody can see your booking and your booking won’t come through because it’s two weeks away blah blah blah basically to get rid of me of the property . On the way of my kicking-out I told her I won’t cancel my b

Omni San Diego Hotel

Downtown San Diego San Diego|0.21km from San Diego Convention Center
Friendly and efficient check-in that included complimentary water bottles. Our balcony room on the 12th floor was on a corner, so we had views of the harbor, Coronado Island & bridge and Petco Park. We attended 2 games (Go Giants!) and appreciated our own special entrance, via the hotel sky bridge. It was so nice to just walk back to our room after the game. We easily walked to several restaurants and the Shout! House. The room was extremely clean and nicely decorated. The bed, pillows and linens were the most comfortable of a hotel bed we have experienced. There was one USB port and several plug ins. The Wi-fi, in-room coffee maker, security safe, refrigerator and blackout curtains were greatly appreciated. The closet was large, with hangers and two suitcase stands, so our room could stay tidy. We received drink vouchers for the bar on the 1st floor and imbibed before one of the ballgames. The balcony has sliding doors and brought in the fresh air. There was not too much street noise when sleeping. As soon as the sun comes up, the light rail trains, sirens, horns and loud engines can be heard. We didn't experience any noise from neighboring rooms. I think this was the first trip, ever, that there were no slamming doors, loud hallway talkers or running children. The bathroom was probably the oddest we have experienced. Extremely clean and updated, but the double sliding shutter doors were very bulky and noisy. Maybe some WD-40 on the tracks would help. There are decorative shutter ”windows” that did nothing to disguise sounds and smells. No sign of a fan, so we opened the balcony doors when in the room. Not a deal breaker, just a uniquely odd set up.
Hard Rock Hotel San Diego

Hard Rock Hotel San Diego

Downtown San Diego San Diego|0.23km from San Diego Convention Center
The reason for the 2 stars is because the Staff was incredible. They were all very courteous, helpful, and amazing. That is about all that was great about this once nostalgic great hotel. The Room - we upgraded to a suite and thought it would be amazing. The layout was great, but the interior is needing some help. We had water damage in the ceiling that was noticeable, the vanity had water damage and the wood was warping, cracked, and run down. The carpet looks like the same carpet from when we stayed 10 years ago and was dirty. The bed was not comfortable at all. The Pool - great layout and setup, I just wish they had let us know when booking about all of the extra expenses that were needed to enter the pool on Saturday only. You need a ticket to get in the pool. You then are not able to go back to your room and come back to the pool unless you pay another entrance fee. Don't think about using a couch or daybed near the pool, those run from $500-$800 for the day. You get to sit at the dirty, bird dropping couches over by the fire pits no where near the pool. They did make the atmosphere fun with a DJ, corn hole, taco bar etc., and they let quite a few people that aren't staying at the hotel in, but they do not manage paying hotel guests very well in this environment. They need to come up with a better system. I'll end on a positive note, the Staff was amazing. All areas of the staff. Valet, Bellman, Concierge, Front Desk, Pool Bar, etc. Everyone we encountered was polite, kind, and really helpful. That is one thing they did right in training their team. Overall, I wish the stay had been similar to our visit 10 years ago. The hotel needs some updating and needs to update how they treat hotel guests on a Saturday with their other revenue stream for the pool.

SureStay Hotel by Best Western San Diego Pacific Beach
3.4/558 Reviews
Pacific Beach
I had not such a real relaxing time.I had been put in a hall way where the noise of anything in this area that was or happen the go through was very loud and noises from all around me were heard, upstairs the people possibly on back of room people from side of me and even laundry.I had been woken up with real loud steeping and jumping from the second floor.Ive never experienced being caught in this from hotels I stay and it will be my last.I don't recommend you let the front people put you somewhere strange in the hotel ask for second floor.By the way I really stay on higher floors then second I don't know why I was fogged about the front desk person convincing me that the room was special.Oh I know because she said she upgraded me to a room with two beds,which I think I had already requested anyway I'll think twice about this place.But if I'm in dire straight I'll neen the second floor please.

The hotel is a good place in the local area, breakfast is not a self-help point, English is not good, it is troublesome, I set the corner of the administrative bed room to give me a general twin room.
San Diego Marriott Mission Valley
4.3/5110 Reviews
Mission Valley
🗺️Location: There is an office area around, but there is a small mall opposite, which is very convenient for shopping and eating. The only inconvenience is that the hotel door is on a one-way street, and it is a bit troublesome to go back to the hotel on the other side. 🌳Environment: The floor is very high, there is a large swimming pool on the garden floor, and there are sofas and bamboo chairs outside the lobby on the first floor, which looks very comfortable. 🏨Facilities: After all, American hotels are old, so the facilities are not very new, but passable. There is a bar in the lobby, a convenience store, and a business lounge for members. There is no alcohol, only drinks and fruits. 🏠 Room: spacious and bright, with good hygiene. The bedding is very comfortable, and the curtains have good shading effect to ensure the quality of sleep. The bathroom is very new, except that there are no disposable items, (you can ask the front desk for lotion, combs, etc.) everything else is very good. All in all, highly recommended! Very friendly hotel. Because I didn't get a free room upgrade, my parking fee was waived, thank you very much!
Hotel Aqua Mar

San Diego Intl. Airport
Viste le recensioni super negative scritte nelle settimane precedenti al mio arrivo, appena entrata nell’Hotel - forse meglio dire Motel - ho chiesto di vedere la camera prima di effettuare il check in (dopo averlo effettuato infatti ho letto non fosse più possibile non pagare la stanza prenotata in precedenza - tramite Booking nel mio caso). Il ragazzo alla reception, gentile, mi ha detto subito di sì ed ha smanettato al pc per 5 minuti buoni: a mio avviso mi è stata assegnata una camera diversa da quella iniziale. La camera è molto piccola, 2 valigie grandi + 2 trolley e lo spazio rimasto era poco. La foto sul sito è reale, la stanza è quella ma ovviamente pulita ed accessoriata, con uso di grand’ angolo. Vista la camera, era tendenzialmente pulita quindi abbiamo deciso di rimanere. Una volta sistemati abbiamo notato delle macchie sulle tende e sulle lenzuola. Io ho usato il sacco lenzuolo che mi porto sempre quando viaggio, mi sentivo più tranquilla. La tele non andava ed il ragazzo alla reception ha cortesemente sistemato il cavo e le impostazioni. Insonorizzazione inesistente sia per l’esterno che per le stanze adiacenti. Ci hanno fornito al check in la password del Wi-Fi. In camera abbiamo trovato un frigo (molto rumoroso subito staccato), un micronde ed una macchinetta del caffè, tutti non utilizzati da noi. Il bagno era fornito di asciugamani e mini kit per la doccia - bagnoschiuma, shampoo e anche balsamo. Non c’era però il phon. Il letto molto rumoroso, ad ogni movimento le molle del letto cigolavano. La struttura si trova vicino all’aeroporto e dista circa 15 minuti dal centro in macchina, per i più avventurosi si può andare in città anche a piedi. La vista è mozzafiato. Vicino ci sono Starbucks, McDonald’s e Dunkin Donuts, quindi anche se non c’è colazione ce la si cava. Il parcheggio è gratuito ma non custodito. In conclusione, per il prezzo - 50$ a testa a notte - per la città di San Diego, la posizione ed il parcheggio gratuito, se non si è molto schizzinosi, questo albergo va benissimo! Certo, non aspettatevi un’esperienza rilassante e silenziosa!
San Diego Marriott Marquis and Marina

Downtown San Diego
A pretty large resort, but with personal attention by the staff. Ground were well appointed. The rooms were very well appointed, beds comfortable, people serving us were pleasant. Would never hesitate to recommend the place. Can't wait to go back. My only complaints as follows - the one bartender at the Tequila Bar definitely wasn't into serving people with a smile. I asked him what beer he had available and he said ”some domestics and some imports”, turned and walked away. That was a turnoff. The other people who served us over the 3 nights were all fine, but not him. Also, we were on the 15th floor, yet surprisingly we could hear conversations down in the pool area, and especially the music playing. I found that as being a little odd. That is the only reason for dropping it down from 5 stars.
