                2.8

                Nothing positive to say

                The facility can barely be classified as a hotel. Rooms wreaked of cigarette smoke, it was too small and stuffy. the tv was a joke... i have seen computer screens bigger! The icing on the cake was the fact that the room had on restroom/bathroom facility. The traffic noise kept me up all night

              • Single
                5.4

                It is really in the downtown San Diego. You can walk around the marina, airport centre in a few minutes.

              • Couple
                8.8

                Great location and friendly atmosphere. I thought the beds were really comfortable and slept well

              • Single
                7.8

                The close proximity to the convention centre (10 minute walk)

                Room decor was a bit dull

              • Single
                7.0

                The price paid was excellent value for money. The staff were very friendly and willing to help with questions and directions. The rooms were just the right size for a single traveller. The shower and toilet facilities were clean. I would recommend the 500 West Hotel to others.

                My one and only complaint, and this is not down to the Hotel or its staff. Other guests had no thought for other people during the middle of the night as the slammed their rooms doors. Please give those a little consideration while they are trying to sleep.

              • Couple
                4.6

                It was cheap.

                Beds feel like prison beds. Carpet is gross. Shady, scary people stay there.

              • Couple
                7.8

                Excellent location easy to access everything!! Felt safe outside at all times of night!

                Shared bathrooms, although they were well maintained.

              • Single
                9.2

                The hotel is very close to a bus stop to the airport, the trolley station to everywhere and just a few blocks from the gaslamp quarter and the convention center. It was great considering the amount paid!

              • Single
                7.0

                Great location, room was clean.

                There were no washcloths in the bathrooms, and bathroom floors were often wet.

              • Group of friends
                5.0

                I don't like this hotel. Because it's without personal restroom.

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                I loved how friendly the cleaning crew was and how helpful most of the front desk was. The location for that price cant be beat!

                obviously the 500 is a hostel, so there are certain luxury things that you cant expect. So the only thing I didnt like was the attitude of one of the front desk people. she had red hair and she was very rude the 2 times I spoke with her.

              • Older travelers
                5.0

                I like only the location! You should not call this place "a hotel" because it is only "a hostel". The window in my room can't be open and noise from a roof at night time was unbearable. The lift was dangerous to use because it was braking very often. It is a time to do a major renovation of your old military facility. And why do you charge $50 accidental expences when you need to pay your guests just to trying your hostel at least a $100?

              • Single
                7.0

                Good location, good share bathrooms

                Rooms a bit small

              • Single
                6.6

                Easy to locate. Complimentary wi-fi internet access.

                Shared bathroom. Very small flat screen TV, less than 14 inches in width (looks more like a computer monitor).

              • Couple
                5.8

                If I thought I was going to a hostel, I would be plesently surprised. However I booked a "hotel room" which I chosen partly because of location, value but also if not most importantly because I liked how the hotel looked. On the pictures! Not in reality tho!! The pictures which are shown on the internet are completely made up, the room was nothing like that. Iit was bit better than standard hostel room with no bathroom in the room. If I knew the room wasn't en-suie I would definitely not go ther. But who would of expect it from a hotel?? So we canceled 2 nights and stayed first 2 only as we wanted to see San Diego.
