My girlfriends and I who live in Los Angeles wanted to get away for one night but we wanted it to be as stress free as possible so we decided to book a nights stay at this hotel as well as purchase a weekend pass with Metrolink & Coaster to take us back and forth. In a nutshell, it was awesome!
We bought at $10/weekend pass with Metrolink and were in Oceanside (which is their last stop heading south) within about 3 hours. To our surprise, the Metrolink had great seating (tables, electrical plugs) and awesome ocean views. We arrived in Oceanside and purchase a round trip ticket on the Coaster for $11 and hopped on. We were in San Diego by noon. The Coaster station is less than a mile from the hotel so we just walked through Gaslamp to get to our hotel. We stopped and had lunch on the way.
The hotel greatest feature is that it's in a great location, right in the heart of Gaslamp so you're minutes away from Petco Park Stadium, great restaurants, bars, lounges, clubs, shops, the harbor, etc.
The hotel is clean and the staff was very nice which made our stay even more enjoyable.
Our room had a tiny kitchenette area with a full-size fridge, stove, dishwasher, coffee maker too.
We enjoyed our Sunday complimentary breakfast =)
Would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely do this again!
