The Place to be in San Diego. Great Motel with great spirit. Rooms are on the smaller side but lovely designed and the beds are insane. Right off the freeway and walkable to the train station. the windows are isolated but the only bad thing is, that you can't open them, but this is the only complain I have about this Motel. A little fridge and safe would be nice to have in the room! For sure I'll be back!
