You definitely need to stay here and I will write why next:As soon as you get there and go through the doors you will be found with an amazing staircase that is really well decorated, all the walls are full of posters It makes you feel goodAs you get closer to the register you’re received by very welcoming people, once you’re done with your check in process and get to your room is in good conditions and clean

The location is basically a 4-10 minute or less walk to clubs, restaurant, and a whole street of fun The location makes this place amazing definitely worth staying here That’s all I have go and visit it yourself and create your own experience and opinion Make it your journey

I stayed here 4 times now I remembered my first Visit here during the height of the Pandemic Despite how hard it was do anything Socially at the time of my first visit, at least it was great to interacted with the staff and some of the guests

A year later I came back things were more normal in San Diego Social wiseRooms are alright, the Beds too but the whole Hostel experience is positive Friendly staff and from my experience with Guests pretty friendly what I seen Plus, it affordable if your on Budget The Plus side of this Hostel its near all the good things to do In Downtown San Diego

graham barton

Phenomenal experience! Everyone from the staff to the guests has a warm, friendly, inviting energy Add that to the excellent location and abundance of art, and you’ve got quite the vibe This will definitely be the go-to spot for future travels

Objectively, the kitchen is set-up nicely so you don’t feel cramped even when it’s full The rooms are neat and clean, and the bathroom/shower facilities are accessible and ample The location is great for public transit on the rails or buses Perfect for going out only a few blocks from downtown Gaslamp, but able to come back to a more peaceful night sleep Just an easy, comfortable stay overall Best in San Diego

Philipp Maßmann

Definitely the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at Everything is so clean and the common areas are great to make new friends The staff is outstanding since everyone is just so helpful and friendly even if they are not on shift

Also the social events are super fun!!The rooms have a good size and the beds provide enough privacy since you have metalwalls behind and next to your head Lockers are provided in the room, which gives extra security Last but not least is the location of the hostel outstanding as well Right in the heart of Gaslamp Quarter and just a 10 min walk from the Seaport Village In conclusion, I can just highly recommend that hostel, doesn’t matter if you are just travelling and want to make new friends or if you are in the city for work

I recently stayed here for a week It was my first time staying in a hostel, and it was a great experience The facilities are just as shown in the photos and the staff is constantly cleaning

I was there with my boyfriend, but I would stay again on my own The only thing I would be uncomfortable with is the area All of downtown SD seems to be home to a large population of homeless individuals That being said, the hostel is secure and if you are looking for a central location I don’t think there is any way around the transients We rented bicycles and were able to get everywhere we needed without issue, and we were everywhere from Mission Beach to Coronado Island to Balboa Park and Barrio Logan Public transportation is also convenient I was working during half our stay and the internet was reliable with plenty of common area work stations There were also lots of small touches that were nice, such as the hair styling tools, q tips, and Sunscreen The staff was friendly and helpful and always available And seriously, they were constantly cleaning They also have rules against food and drinks in the bed areas which I appreciated knowing the chances of pests in the rooms was lower The lockers are big enough for a carry on suitcase plus 2 backpacks with some room to spare

Troy Francis

This was my 1st time trying out a hostel and all I can say is “WOW-IMPRESSED” It is in perfect location near downtown and staff is super friendly in explaining everything I was hesitant in booking initially because I thought I was going to be in large open room with bunkbeds and not be able to feel comfortable to rest after long day but total opposite

There is SINGLE rooms with a comfortable bed and closed off curtain Area was CLEAN and showers had hot water and provided towels & soap There is even LOCKERS with code so no need for locks I feel totally safe and would definitely be staying here more often when I come to SD

Walter Thomas

I LOVE this place It is truly Classy It is such a vibe for those who are friendly, urban and easy going

For those who are not, it is ok, this place has many zones to also be in your own area to relax as well as work As a professional Interior Designer, I was very impressed and pleased with the aesthetics and functionality of the entire building It has all that you need from a small kitchenette to warm and store goods and more It has a lounge to hangout and watch television, or just chill The sleeping quarters are as described and are perfect It is the BEST of hostels The bathroom is clean and nicely designed as well Across the street is a grocery store and many places to walk for a bite to eat It is a short and easy walk to all places in the heart of San Diego I highly recommend “Stay Classy” but only if you are classy If you are rough and disrespectful, stay away, there is no need to disturb this wonderful vibe of this place The staff members were all helpful and kind Accessing and checking in was also a breeze

Well I don’t know where to start Came in from out of town to just get awayWe called customer service to go to the Hilton on Mission Valley by the mall and as we drove to the location given it was mission valley stadium and did not match the pictures

As we checked in the front desk told us immediately if we switched hotels we still will be charged for three days because we needed to give 24 hours Mind you the reservation was made the same day Not understanding why a simple switch could not be made as we noticed a whole homeless camp in the back parking lot Called customer or corporate line to ask if we could switch and the customer service agent said why did we choose this hotel and not what we wanted as we explained to her we are from out of town and did not know we would of been deceived After telling us she needed to hear the tape to see if we made the mistake or the employee made the mistake Agent was rude and only listened to provide a response and not one of a customer service agent When asked if we could speak to her manager she replied she doesn’t have a manager as we called the top leave of service for Hilton and she was the boss My reply everyone answers to someone and she said she was the top and will send us an investigation As we were on the phone my husband noticed Hilton deducted 202200 from his credit card This was mentioned to top level phone agent and her reply was that wasn’t her concern as she is only focusing if we made the mistake of choosing the wrong hotel We immediately called front desk to make them aware and a male staff member hung up after being confronted about that amount and we called back and a female staff member acknowledged she was aware and they are working on it and it will be refunded in 24 hours 2 days later money was not returned and we were quoted 59400 There were no light bulbs in two of the lamps and a light bulb missing on one of mini reading lamps We don’t smoke and it reeked of stale cigarettes There was dried blood on the sheets Also we had to call the front desk to ask for new wash clothes and clean sheets as no one bothered to clean our room Tomorrow is our check out 4/21/2922 just in case there is a lie to justify the stealing of 2 grand Very disappointed in how this makes the Hilton name to become tarnished

Jill Galbraith

I am giving 4 stars because the good outweighs the badNear many restaurants and stores The only disabled parking spot they have is large

Extremely helpful staff, especially midnight clerk and GM Good food at the restaurant Putting restaurant tab on hotel bill was extremely convenient Nice selection in the store Clean in the common areas and rooms Nice amenities in rooms and lobby The pool was beautiful and the workout room was excellent and very well equipped The guest safes were convenient and a lifesaverHuge homeless camp behind hotel, so tons of foot traffic through the driveway Delivery trucks block driveway throughout the day No coffee available after 10am No lunch at restaurantLots of small things broken in the rooms, but manager took the problems seriously and repairs were made promptly Minor issue with one of the elevators, and the ice machine on the 2nd floor is broken, loud and leakingWe would definitely stay again due to the staff’s commitment to our comfort, convenience, and security

This is the worst Hilton in San Diego, CA The way they took the angle of the hotel looks clean and big but once we arrived, the area is a dump, squash between Jack in the Box like this hotel was in the back alley

in which it is On the outside parking in the rear, you will see homeless encampment It is not safe and be aware that the camera inside the garage only have one view take and make sure you park once you enter the garageif you go further to where you are heading out, there is no camera in which that the camera angle only the entrance and not the other side The elevator and the hallway to any floors smell and has no air condition No complimentary breakfast in which they will charge you $2100 per person We told the front desk, we do not want serviceand they come anyway This place only looks good in the front main entrance to check in but the room are terriblepower outlet do not work, no fan vent in the restroom, and trust methey will try to charge you extra fees Parking is $1500 a night but you see other encampment RV park inside and they did not even care We only put friend family pet in the room for a min of 30 minutes and were charge $7500 for a service fee Stay away from this place and rent the one by the waterfront Other customer that slept during those days we stay said their bathroom was clogged and none of the maintenance did not care We have pay a premium during our stay in July of 2022and it was the worst stay At least have a security on duty patrolling the parking Have extra hotel luggage cart We have ask many time and they said they do not have it, in which we found out they only have 3 cart throughout the hotel in which we were lucking that one of the customer gave it to us down in the basement parking I would not come back to this placeI have seen many customer just walk across the alley to other restaurant to buy breakfast every morning It is a sad location and they need to disclose it online so everyone should be aware of booking it Be aware, check Google map 3d and you will thank me! Going back to lower end of other hotel that offer better service, complimentary, and care about customer spending these nights there

New hotel in a residential and business area that is currently under construction Lots of great restaurants, a brewery, and shopping centers within 5 mins drive The breakfast spread was the best out of any Residence Inns and compatible hotels – individually wrapped biscuit sandwiches, yogurt, pancakes – which was very convenient for packing lunches for the nearby theme parks

Love that Sesame Place is less than a 10 minutes away they also put out cookies, fruit and juices in the lobby depending on what time of the day it is customer service was also top notch as we had an issue with an upgrade request but resolved within 3 emails from the GM Miguel with the best possible outcome this will be our go-to hotel for future visits in the CV area!

Willie Abreu

The staff at this location were very friendly and helpful The general Manager, Miguel, Ro, and Alice at the front desk went the extra mile to ensure that you felt at home and have a wonderful stay Rachel and Claudia in housekeeping, did an amazing job cleaning our room and made sure we had everything well stocked in the kitchen

The room itself was very accommodating with lovely views! Thank you again to the great staff for your attention and services

My wife and I have stayed at the Ayres Chula Vista on two different occasions and both were perfect! You can’t get a better location than this, so much to do around this hotel, almost feels like a movie set how clean it is!Rooms are a great size and always perfectly clean Air conditioning worked great and we got a great night sleep on the comfortable bed In Room TV is a good size with plenty of channels

My wife and I love the patio bar, drinks were great price and bartender made our drinks just how we like themThe complimentary breakfast is my favorite part, it’s on par with any resturant you’d go to for breakfast! The food is delicious and my wife and I started every day full and happy because of it!From the front desk to the kitchen staff to the housekeeping, all staff provided excellent service! We will definitely be coming back to Ayres Chula Vista and highly recommend it!

Corrina Jacobitz

My husband’s and mines stay was amazing! The beds were super comfortable and the room was exceptionally clean There are so many stores and eateries within walking distance and there was a dog park just down the road that was an easy walk We brought along our 90lbs Alaskan Malamute/German Shepperd mix and the room they put us in was huge and spacious enough for two adults, our extra large dog, luggage, and her bed

The staff at the front were so kind and helpful We forgot our dog bowls at home and they were gracious enough for find us two bowls that we could use We can’t thank the staff enough for providing those for us! The grounds and building are beautiful and very well maintained An additional plus is their Tesla destination chargers so that we could charge our car while we slept All in all, we had a wonderful stay and will definitely be back!

Erik P

Stayed here since the place wasn’t that far from the water parkLocation – This area is a newer modern area with a lot of shopping and restaurants near byStaff – Everything was great until I decided to grab a drink at the pool bar and the bartender didn’t make that good of a old fashioned and seem bothered I caught him a few minutes before closing

Parking – Decent size lot but hard to find parking right in frontRooms – Clean, modern, good size and overall very satisfiedGrounds – Chill outside patio with pool bar, lounging area and a ok poolComplimentary Breakfast – Very Very Basic with limited optionsOverall place wasn’t bad and would consider staying here again and would recommend itGym – Has to be one of the better gyms I have experienced with a good size, newer machines, amazing views, and cleanPricing – Not too bad for what they have to offer

Alondra Rodriguez

My family of four and I were pleased with our stay here, located right by Mainstreet Walking around and finding a great place to eat and shop nearby was excellent The police station is the building’s neighbor, so it felt secure to walk at night

The staff is amicable! The pool was always at a warm temperature, and we enjoyed that while out on a night swim Beautiful Patio next to the pool as well

Natalia Jeanie

Love this place The staff are always extremely polite, courteous and more than helpful I wish the house keeping staff spoke a lock of English bc it’s really frustrating when they’re the only ones available and they have absolutely no idea what it is that you’re asking for or needing

The communication barrier is a huge road block and very unfortunate other than that very clean, great breakfast and free parking!

Looking for a decently priced place to stay that is conveniently located by the freeway to get you to downtown San Diego in less than 10 minutes? Well look no further!We noted in reviews that this motel had been recently renovated and we decided to take a chance on the Rambler given the overall vibe and price!It was impressive! The beds are comfy, the shower are nice, and the size of the rooms is goodStaff was kind and welcoming especially with us checking in so late! Parking was easy as wellI know folks bring up the noise level, I honestly wasn’t bothered by it at all and our room was facing the freeway

We do live in the city so maybe that helped?The only downside is the no fridge or microwave With being tourists we would come home with food and forget we didn’t have it to warm/coolOverall though, this place is a strong contender of places to stay in the San Diego area!


This place has a great nostalgic 70s feel Remodeled hotel and rooms Very clean and in a good location

They have a great bistro on site in their lobby area and you get 50% off anything you order when you stay there Happy to be able to have my smoothies in the morning Close to a hiking/biking trail to enjoy beautiful views on runs/workouts The pool area has a nice fire pit and corn hole game you can play I like the way the pool area lights up at nightOnly downside to this hotel is that there’s no microwave or refrigerator in the room And the curtains don’t fully block the light in the morning from the sun The bed was pretty comfortable, not the best but also not the worst

Marion Ashly Jones

I have been traveling to San Diego a lot this year and I always stay at the Rambler The rooms are cute, clean, and affordable I appreciate that the trolley runs nearby as well

The staff is always friendly and accommodating I love the cafe as well and guests get half off When I’m back home I find myself craving the food! Thank you to the staff for creating a great guest experience every time I visit

The room was very nice and clean I was upset they didn’t offer an extra pillow but other than that it was quiet and the TV was nice compared to many hotels It was affordable and the bed was nice and clean The parking lot was very small and hard to maneuver if there’s a lot of guests at the motel

Otherwise everything was very pleasant

The hotel staff are amazing, friendly, accommodating, respectful, and so much moreThe room was excellent

Only weird part was the carpet was a bit dingy/old Beyond that it was nice and spaciousThe hotel game room oddly had to be reserved but it was small room so makes senseIf you need a bell-dolly for your luggage they’re is only 3 in the entire hotel Why? No idea but makes no sense for a hotel of that sizeSelf serve Breakfast is greatBbq area is greatLocation is fantastic


This is the perfect location if you want to stay close to family and friends Love waking up in the morning to work out at the gym After working out has some delicious breakfast and coffee

At night time you can go outside have a drink by the fire pit The only issue I had was a customer service issue other than that I really enjoyed my stay and definitely will be staying here again

Steff A.

I stayed there recently for a one night Saturday night stay and it was fantastic from beginning to end

Check In: My reservation was booked through the Hilton website The front desk attendant was so friendly she provided us 2 bottles of water at check in She explained to us the facilities and the complimentary breakfast for the next morning I received a text message later welcoming me again and to text back if I needed anything Lastly, the housekeeping supervisor assigned to our room stopped by and introduced herself to us She told us not to hesitate to reach out if we need anything AwesomeFacilities and room: We had a two queen room and the room was spotless The TVs worked well and all the furniture and decor was contemporary and appeared brand new The bathroom was spacious, clean and had strong water pressure and no shortage of hot water This is very important to me lolMiscellaneous: The complimentary had some hot dishes of eggs, breakfast meats and plenty of bagels, pastries, fruits, juice etc They had a staff of 3 attending to everyone and they did great Don’t forget to tip! The lobby was spacious and the business area section had plenty of table space if you need go spread out and get some work done There was no charge for parking which we totally appreciated as wellNext time I’m in Chula Vista visiting my buddy and his fam, I will definitely stay at Homewood Suites again if need be Safe Travels all!

This hotel and property were nice and very warm and inviting feeling We’d stay again All the staff was so friendly and genuine, we loved that! The rooms were clean and our king bed was comfortable!Only cons were there is no breakfast and our floor did reek of weed the first night, which was off-putting as the lobby smelt amazing

It also was a little south of SD We thought it might be a little closer but we aren’t from there so didn’t know Not far at all just not right by it

Eric Yanagihara

Seems newer or remodeled Our double queen room was well cleaned and smelled fresh Plenty of towels

Air conditioning was relatively quiet and cooled our room quickly Be aware that the hotel is pet friendly, so you may hear the occasional bark(ing) No breakfast service, but there is a restaurant next door on the same property (no discount for hotel guests)Conveniently located to the 5 North & South on-ramps Ample parking during our visit in mid JulyBottom line, would definitely stay here again

Stu Turner

Wow! It looks newly renovated, everything is beautiful It’s very large, almost 500 rooms I’m in room 420 with a balcony- it’s a bit of a walk to get to the room but the room is spacious and spotless

I brought my pillows jic but this bed and it’s pillows were perfect so I didn’t need them The air is great, you can either set the thermostat or just turn it on There is a small gym, the pool and spa are open No continental breakfast but there are a ton of restaurants just right around the corner, one even right outside the front door The whole place smells great too This will be my regular hotel from now on

Update: The manager provided points but did not refund me One start back for Hilton to finally get back to me after I escalated itOverall the room is decent and staff is friendly

DO NOT BOOK “PARK AND STAY” OR YOU WILL BE RIPPED OFFHere is what happened to me I booked two rooms on the same reservation AT THE SAME TIME and I have a car So I booked 1 room with “Honor Flex” and the other with “Park and Stay” After checked out, I found out that there was parking fees charged to me The fee is supposed to be included The system has a bug that it marked both room rate as “Honor Flex” and send two emails to me with both rooms with more expensive “Park and Stay” rate but marked as “Honor Flex”The customer representative refused to resolve extra charge and insisted that it was me booking two different rates She kept saying that the reason I had two rates is because one room is for 1 person, and the other is with 2 people Does Hilton even charge extra money for 2 people? The answer is NO And the room rate with 1 person is actually higher on the receiptI understand 2020 was a tough time and you wanted to make a profit But, by charging non-agreed money, is not the right way to do business

I was so disappointed with my stay here Being that this hotel is of the Hilton brand, I had much higher expectations than what I experienced It was a feeling like when you buy a burger at McD’s, and it doesn’t look anything like the picture

The staff were fine; I can’t complain about them They were actually nice and worked hard, and the reason I’m giving this hotel a low rating is not their faultHere’s what’s wrong:1: The hotel looks not even close to as good as the photos online, especially the swimming pool and jacuzzi2: The choices for your view from outside the window are either facing the ugly I8 freeway or the graffiti mountain on the opposite side3: There were dead bees all over the window sills4: It smelled musty and old inside the room5: The bathroom didn’t even have a vent fan to blow out steam, and there was rotting wood in the bathroom as wellIf this were a 2 star hotel, or even 3 star, I would rate it a bit higher, but since this is a 4 star hotel; it’s of the Hilton, premium brand, and it’s not cheap, I was very underwhelmed with my experience This is not what I would expect from a 4 star Hilton hotel The staff were great, but the hotel itself desperately needs remodeled and cleaned up I’ve stayed at lower rated hotels that were much cleaner and nicer than this Hilton; this was a big disappointment

Overall, the hotel and its interior design are nice BUT I expected more from Hilton hotel and for $220 per night Especially in terms of cleanlinessHowever, in terms of flexibility they do a pretty good job

We were able to check in as soon as we got to San Diego, which was about 3-4 hours earlier without any extra charges and we were also able to extend it by 2 hours without any charges Although 2 hours is the longest you extend before you get charged for a whole night Whatever the check out time is, either if you’ve extended or no, you’ll have 15 more minutes to check outWe got a 2 queen bed bedroom on the 8th floor with city view which actually looked really nice but only at night and the day view of it wasn’t as good and was just towards the highwayIn terms of cleanliness, they DID NOT do much of a job The sink was clogged, the toilet seat cover was broken would fall on me whenever I’d sit I also found a dried macaroni on the floor the first day even though we didn’t eat in the room AT ALL the whole stay and the room was kinda dustyAC was decent

I was fortunate enough to have the company I worked for put me up at this beautiful hotel for a business trip I was here for two days and enjoyed every minute of it First of all I love San Diego so this was a double plus for me

The staff here were unbeatable and went out of their way to make sure my stay was pleasant and to make sure I had everything I needed My room was very nice and the bed so comfortable I really enjoyed my stay and it didn’t feel like work, more like a mini vacation Thank you everyone there for all of your caring and hard work

First of all service here by the staff is tops Beyond professional they just really seem to care about your comfort and needs so are quick to respond to any requests or questions Hotel itself is very nice and clean

Rooms are comfortable Layout is easy to navigate Lobby decor is beautiful Just an overall elegant but comfy vibe Only reason for 4 stars is completely subjective I like a hotel with nice views My options seem to be a view overlooking the roof of the lobby and then the freeway or a shopping center There are restaurants, FedEx and other shops right off the second floor which is nice but the neighborhood isn’t very walkable Only other strike was that there was no mini fridge in the room which I thought was strange All minor issues in the end Room rate was surprisingly low compared to other options in the area for the quality I’ll definitely stay here again

This was my first time at a hostel and I loved it The common spaces were clean and the other guests were friendly and accommodating You could tell they had a system for managing people flow, cleaning schedules, etc

I appreciated that they provided complimentary ear plugs, though my room was quiet and I didn’t need them They provided a locker for my suitcase and only charged me $4 for a lock, which I feel like they could have taken advantage of the situation and overcharged me, but they didn’t The downsides were that the emergency exits weren’t clear, the power went out for a short while, and at least one of the bathrooms on our floor was closed which meant sometimes having to hunt for another option All in all, those things didn’t bother me much The location in the Gas Lamp district is unbeatable and convenient to the convention center and all the restaurants When I visited on April 20, 2022, masks were recommended but not required Proof of vaccination was required Amazing experience I highly recommend

Very friendly and safe atmosphere Staff were nice and explained things clearly and helpful Very secure entrance and rooms had electronic locks

My bed wasn’t ready when I showed up early but they offered to stow my luggage and allowed me to hang out in the common area The common areas were very cleanThe bed was comfy and linens were clean and my blanket was fluffy Lockers were big and fit my suitcase Locks were available for purchase for $550 the outlet was right next to my bunk which was really convenient Bathroom smelled a little funky but not enough to really bother meIt was a quiet environment perfect for relaxing The city gets a little loud at night but I expected that with all the outdoor dining and activities going on There’s free earplugs if you need them Lots of good dining and not far from the stadium, drugstore, and the bayI was able to walk a few blocks and catch the local bus to the airport for $250 which was anice option compared to taxi etcThis was my first stay at a Hostel and likely not my last because of how this wentThank you to all the staff for a relaxing experience!!
