Fodor's Review

A block from Balboa Park, this is a bare-bones place, but a heck of a deal for longer-staying travelers. Available for weekly rental, rooms are done in pale colors with bright accents and have kitchenettes with refrigerators and microwaves, and wall-mounted TVs; there's also a DVD movie library. Parking is limited, but public transit is nearby. The European style of the hotel draws many international travelers. Some rooms have in-room baths or half baths while others have shared bathrooms.

The rates/kichenette/free breakfast/free wifi were super! I will be
