San Diego August 5th through August 8th

Would recommend Mon, Aug 10, 2009
Hotel was in a quiet area between the San Diego marina and shipping channel. Not many child amenities in walking distance. Room we had was on the end and was dark. The carpet was filthy and we had very little natural light coming into the room. A lot of the other rooms had views of the harbor or shipping channel. Must have to pay more for those rooms with a view. Swimming pool was nice. One night, a friday night there was no parking available in the lot. I was expecting a nicer room, and a little bit bigger room for 150 bucks a night. A party was going on in a room the next building over at 11:30 at night. Complained to front desk, and security was there within minutes to break it up. All in all the room was adequate since all we did was sleep there. Still had to drive 5 miles to Sea World and 30 minutes to Legoland. Next time will stay at a less expensive place since all we use the room for is sleeping.

A new addition to the hotel

Would recommend Sun, Aug 2, 2009
The new addition opened on July 4 and everything is new and clean. The third floor room was large, and the view from the balcony over looking the marina was great.There was a large flat screen TV. On the negative side, The bed had a heavy comforter which made us too warm. The shower head is seven feet up the wall, great for an NBA player but too high for us short people (We can't stretch!) and the water hits too close to the opposite wall. Also, there are no towel bars. To conserve water and energy, the hotel asks that we use the towel rack to indicate we will re-use the towels. Still, I would book that hotel again.

Great location, nice pool; although, the room was small, the bathroom smelled of stale water/musty and housekeeping was noisy in the morning.

Attractions

Very close to Sea World.

Nice & Quiet

Would recommend Thu, Jul 30, 2009
Parking is rare after 6pm due to concerts at other hotels. Check in on Sunday took over 2-1/2hrs due to no clean rooms available according to the front desk. Other non Orbit check-ins were given upgrades at no extra charge.

Entertainment hint

The USS Midway and Sea World were close and easy to get to.

Fantastic Family Getaway

Would recommend Thu, Jul 30, 2009
Great location w/ a beautiful view of the bay. Located close to all of the attractions we wanted to see. The staff was very helpful and even provided us with an upgrade to a room with a patio. I would stay here again when traveling to SanDiego. Great stay!

Dining

Try Miguel's Cantina located within walking distance from the hotel. The fish tacos were amazing!

Dining

Great Hotel!

Would recommend Mon, Jul 27, 2009
We wish our stay had been longer because we really enjoyed our night there. We had a wonderful view of the marina behind the hotel and wished we had more time to explore. Our room was brand new, in a building that had just been opened a few weeks earlier.

Great All Girl Getaway

Would recommend Mon, Jul 27, 2009
Hotel location was great. We were within 10-20 minutes of any places we wanted to see. We had a great time. Wish we could have stayed longer. We would definitely recommend biking and kayaking tours. If you like a bit of history and Mexican food you would enjoy Old Town. If you like the downtown scene you should make a night of it in the Gas Lamp District.
