The first thing I will say about the Harborview Inn & Suites is that it is perfectly adequate for a stay in San Diego. It's situated in Little Italy and about a 20 minute walk to Downtown depending on your pace. The price is good, but you get what you pay for. Room is a little dated, linens have that pilled effect like they have been washed too many times, and there was a bit of a stale smell to my room which I couldn't air out since the windows don't have screens. The family that owns the property were friendly enough.

The good: Location is good for anywhere in San Diego, there was free, limited onsite parking, not a lot of noise between rooms, tv worked. AC worked and wasn't noisy. Mini-fridge and microwave worked, though the microwave door was broken.

The bad: It is located right near the freeway and on a busy street (Grape St.) so very loud at night. Also directly under a flight path, but that is most of San Diego anyway, so planes going overhead every 10 minutes or so. The elevator is tiny and very old.

The REAL bad: I don't think the hotel is very secure. There are two unmanned entrances into the hotel. The hotel has a lobby, but you do not go through the lobby to get into your room. You leave the lobby, return to the street, and enter through the next door. This door was not secure, even though there was a keycard slot. There were guest rooms directly off this door. It seemed unsafe. There is also an entrance off Grape St. that was not always secure even though it also had a keycard slot. I think some of this had to do with guest improperly securing the door, but the door should close of its own weight. Also, there were two guest rooms accessible directly from Grape St. You didn't even have to enter the hotel proper to access these doors. Given the amount of homeless and mentally ill people in San Diego, I think safety should be any hotels utmost concern.

Room Tip: I don't know if there were any quiet rooms in this building. For safety, choose something on the 3rd or 4th floor, not on the Grape St. or freeway side.

My wife and I stayed 6 days , Oct 7 to Oct 12, 2013 and we were surprised how wonderful this hotel is after reading some of the bad comments. Do not be mislead as we stayed in a 3rd floor room with 2 queen beds,which was a rather large room on the maib street. Noise no problem compared to hotels we have stayed in DC, New Orleans and Seattle with similiar locations and priced much , much higher. Wounderful beds, large TV, A/C, refrig, M/W, and all new bath fixtures. Room appears to have been recently updated and room service was outstanding. Very friendly and helpful staff and directed us to closeby Little Italy places to enjoy great food at reasonable prices. Try "Mona Liza" only 2 blocks walk and very busy. Highly recommend the hotel with great location.

Room Tip: Best rooms on 3 rd floor as recently remodeled

Stayed just one night. Nice and easy to find, had no problem parking, friendly check in staff. Hotel decor a bit shabby, rooms dated, but clean. TV, microwave, table, chairs, fridge. Windows only single glazed, we did sleep, but the noise from the street and airport were constant, but it did just become a white noise, so we slept well!!! Pastries and coffee were available in morning for breakfast. I have given a good rating as we did actually sleep well and it was very cheap. One block to little Italy for a nice meal.

Room Tip: I would imagine they're all the same

Was here for a conference - stayed 5 days - pretty good. Food and service couldn't be better, staff very good (and very friendly to British). On site pub/bar a bit expensive - but, that's what you expect in a hotel. very handy for everything.

Price was OK. Room 207 was OK. Double Queens bed was great. AC was working fine. But: it's right in the lane for the flights from SD Airport. Very, very noisy. Breakfast was lousy. Room needs cleaning.
