Days Inn San Diego/Downtown/Convention Center
Ranked #168 of 278 Hotels in San Diego
Reviewed 24 August 2013

Easy to find and a really good location, within easy walking distance from downtown. On arrival we got a warm and friendly welcome. We had arrived early but that wasn't an issue, able to leave car in car park and following the advice. From the clerk, with a map provided, we were able to locate downtown and spend the afternoon I the gas lamp district. On return we were given a large and very nice room the second floor. The room had all the usual refinements but some nice little touches like sweets. The bd was excellent and sufficient pillows of quality. This was the first hotel in our two month trip that had not only a Christian bible but also an introduction to Buddhism.
Breakfast was included. The quality and mix offered are to be commended. Healthy options, a rarity, were on offer. On departure we were given a curious farewell and advice on travelling from San Diego to Cathedral city. Well done Charles.

Thank you very much for staying with us and leaving a review. Aside from everything that San Diego has to offer (world's greatest climate, Gaslamp District, Convention Center, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Sea World, and so much more), our greatest asset is our staff. They work tirelessly to provide an excellent guest experience for everyone who chooses to stay with us. That is why it is so gratifying for us when an experienced traveler takes the time to point out some of the little things our staff does to stand out. We appreciate how getting lost in a new city can be extremely frustrating, so anything we can do to avoid that possibility can only enhance the quality of someone's stay. Little things like holding on to luggage prior to check in or after check out to enable our guests to start their vacation a little earlier or extend it a little later is our pleasure.

Stay tuned for new breakfast items to appear in the very near future, as we try to expand our selection to more healthy options. We look forward to serving you again the next time you visit San Diego. And remember, always book directly at daysinn.com for the best rate, Wyndham Rewards points, and the best cancellation policy!

I stayed at this hotel because of TripAdvisor's rating. I now have less trust in TripAdvisor. I should probably give it 2 stars, but because I feel its overall rating is too high, I'm giving it only 1 to try and drag it down further.

In a nutshell, the hotel is old and outdated, desperately in need of updating. The room was small, smelled old and musty. The lobby is tiny - this really is a "motel" and not a "hotel".

As a busy downtown property, we receive our fair share of reviews, both good and not so good, and we take the time to respond to each and every one. With respect to this review, we do take exception to the reviewers attempt to "drag down" our overall rating by submitting a review that he admits is lower than his "true" rating.

We really do attempt to provide a quality guest experience for everyone who chooses to stay with us. With very few exceptions, we manage to meet that expectation. It probably comes as no surprise that guests are far more likely to go out of their way to leave a negative review as opposed to a positive one, which further distorts the true guest experience at any property, not just ours.

In any case, we hope that prospective travelers will take these factors into account, along with the totality of a property's reviews when making a decision where to stay. And remember, always book direct at daysinn.com for the best rate, Wyndham Rewards points, and cancellation policy.

Rooms are very small. Over priced for what you get.The beds are very uncomfortable with bad pillows. Not able to sleep well at all. We were nailed with $80+ in extra fees. No deal here. My family and I would never stay here again.

Thank you very much for staying with us. We are disappointed any time a guest does not enjoy his or her stay. We are somewhat puzzled by the comment regarding extra fees, as we offer many free amenities (breakfast, wi-fi, refrigerator, microwave) that other hotels either charge for or don't even offer. Moreover, all of our rooms recently received new pillowtop mattresses, but we realize that individual opinions can certainly differ.

Once again, we apologize that your stay was not satisfactory. Rest assured that your comments will be considered by our staff and management.

We stayed in San Diego for one night and it was absolutely worth what we paid for. The location is close to downtown and also to the highway. We had a great stay. Only negative remark was the parking fee of $15. Even though it was mentioned at the booking, we thought it was fairly expensive, since almost nobody arrives by bike or public transit.

Thank you very much for your review. We strive to provide a quality guest experience to everyone who stays with us, and value is a big part of that equation. Our location is also a big plus, putting you close to so many of San Diego's best attractions.

You may be surprised to find out that a great number of our guests arrive without a car, particularly those attending conventions. Moreover, we continue to offer the lowest per night parking fee in the downtown area, where every property charges for parking.

We look forward to hosting you again the next time you visit San Diego. And remember, always book direct at daysinn.com for the best rate and cancellation policy!
