Good location, but wont stay there again

The location of the hotel made up for the other things the hotel was lacking. It is definetly right in the mix of things, right across the street from the boardwalk and ocean, city bus stop, shops, great bars and restraurants!!! We had to wait for a cab and sometimes. Do not take the the lincoln town car cabs or the smaller suv cabs they are more expensive and one of the drivers solicited a tip from us. We stayed in the tower which provided a great view of the beach and city. Rooms need a little up dating but were clean. The pool area and hot tub close early at 10pm so if you wanted a late night swim forget it. We had to wait for towels by the pool for like 20 minutes on a cooler night. The showers were cold for 2 days. :(. I will not stay at this hotel again!

Too good to share

The service was wonderful. The food was fabulous. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was located on a bay which was perfect for sailing or windsurfing. The outdoor seating at the restraunt had a beautiful view and was soo relaxing. The room was very large and very well maintained. The hotel decor was a little dated but with all the positives, who cares.

Catamaran Nights

This hotel is in a great location and has fantastic landscaping, the bay is beautiful and it is one block from the beach. The garden view is also great and relaxing.

Conference Stay

I thought the staff was friendly and the grounds were beautiful! Although the rooms were comfortable and clean, I felt that they were a little out-dated, and in the hallway/entrance area to our room there was a large stain. Probably time to replace the carpet.

A little more to be desired

The location of the hotel was great. A block away from the ocean, as well as restaurants and the 8 bus line. The staff was helpful and had great suggestions for meals and activities. However, the room was less than desirable. The hotel seemed to be divided by class and social status. Our room did not have a poolside view as advertised, or any view at all. Nor were the beds spacious and comfortable as claimed by the website. The bathroom was the standard holiday inn hotel bathroom, not the resort, sunny, bright or airy as stated. The description of the room described something that it was not. The hotel was not terrible, just expensive for what was offered.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take public transportation. The attractions in San Diego are very spaced apart and easily accessible by the metro transit system. Be sure to buy the day pass which is an easy $5.00 for all day use. Cabs become very costly quickly in this city. Be patient and take the bus. The buses offer a quick hop and a step to Hillcrest the GLBT district of San Diego.

Great Location

Cost for parking service was an unexpected expense. Be prepare to pay $13.00 per day or about $17 per day for valet, since they do not own the parking area. Otherwise, everything else was great.
