Loved our stay here
This hotel is a 10-15 minute bus ride from the San Diego zoo. The room was big. We were a group of three and it was great to have two rooms in the room. The two bathrooms were also convenient. The hotel has been well kept. There's is a restaraunt in lobby has delicious food and our waitress was very friendly.

Great History and location
We found the La Fayette to be a fantastic location, reasonably priced and very friendly staff. The History in the hotel is what drew us in and we also liked the location. The pool was designed by Tarzan and the first guest to stay was Bob Hope. The bar staff are super friendly without being pretentious. Make sure you grab a takeaway pizza from just down the road at Luigis too!

Frat House Hotel
Might be fine Monday-Thursday, but come Friday this place turns into a frat house. Paper-thin walls. Partying until 4:30AM and really terrible pillows. We even asked if we could get ones that weren't bricks, but that's all they had.
