The Parkside Inn is an older yet affordable Motel. It is next to a McDonald's and across the street from The World Mark timeshare and a Shell gas station. It is 1 block from San Diego City College and San Diego High School. This Motel is primarily an overflow property for conventions. It has a small open parking lot, and the motel manager lives on site. The motel and area are safe due to the large number of college and high school kids in the area. It is 1 mile from Balboa park, 2 miles from the Zoo, 1 mile from the Gaslamp quarter, 1.5 miles from San Diego bay, 2 miles from the convention center and 4 miles from the airport. It is close to both trolley and bus routes. This motel does not have a pool, it is convenient for business travel.

Yep. Once when I was having some work done on my house. It's,,,,,not really a very nice place. But it's cheap and it's a room, a tv with cable and it is right downtown so it is easy to get places. Watch out for the crack heads and methfreaks in the area. They don't only come out at night there. Another place kind of like it is http://500westhotel.com.
it's a European style residential hotel with community kitchen and stuff, very clean and quite. LCD TVs are nice but the rooms are small. So if you are the kind that likes to hang out in your room it's not for you. But it is always exciting to live downtown and so close to Gaslamp.
I think you can find a weekly price for both places at this link http://signonsandiego.com
just go to the classifieds and the hotel/motel section
If you are the adventurous type there is a hostel in Gaslamp and 1 in Ocean Beach that I know of

The "500 West" is not an European style hotel; it's the renamed Armed Services YMCA. It's not as bad as it use to be but beware the number of drug addicted who stay there.
well thats in downtown san diego, and the airport is close by
