I must say that I enjoyed my stay at Comfort Inn Gaslamp. I was not disappointed after reading the positive reviews of the hotel.
From the get go, the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff made me feel at ease when I checked in. Mike and Ana who I met at the front desk when I arrived, were all smiles and ensured that I felt satisfied with my room.
The rooms are cozy and have all the amenities and conveniences that I could ask for- comfortable pillows, free earplugs, free WiFi, microwave, complimentary tea, coffee, water and popcorn!, mini fridge, TV with free cable and pay per view movies, free local calls .....
Breakfast was also part of the package, which offered simple but fulfilling options: fruit, waffles, eggs, sausages, pastry, bread, cold cereal, juices, hot beverages, yogurt etc. They even have complimentary fruit and hot beverages throughout the day which is a nice touch.
The location cant be beat, as it is right in the Gaslamp and close to restaurants (Buca di Beppo is on the same block), bars, movie theatre on the next block, same street as Horton's shopping plaza, etc.
if you are sensitive to noise, being in the city area with the occasional siren, you have the option of using your earplugs or turning on the fan or AC which helps to drown out outside noises.
It takes about 10 mins or less to get to the convention center walking, or its a 5 dollar cab fare. The hotel offers a complimentary pickup from the airport. To the airport they can call you a cab. I however, booked with Super Shuttle and I paid $5 to get to the airport.
I really cant think of anything negative to say about the hotel. I had a good experience and would definitely return if I were to visit San Diego again.
One bit of advice is to book directly through their website to get discounts on your stay.
