Great Oceanside Stay

Our rooms were upgraded, and the ocean view was a calming extra after a day of hard work. See full review

Don't want to give away this secret!

The hotel is beautiful! Great view of the ocean! Not too far from downtown San Diego/Gas Lamp or La Jolla. The Concierge provided step by step directions to all surrounding attractions as well as a selection of places to dine. The staff was incredibly accommodating and friendly! The rooms were beautiful!

Great staff, good location, all else ok

Amenities at the hotel were limited. No restaurant, no bar, no exercise facility. What you get is a standard room, great staff that do everything they can given the limited amenities and the beach as your backyard. Did I mention the rooms are right on the beach. Five minute walk, and that's at a slow pace, and you're on the beach. Seems to attract some rowdy guests, we had one very noisy night.

It's all about the beach, there isn't much else. If you don't want the sand and the waves it's nothing special.

nice hotel / clean rooms

Our first night was okay, we were right next to the AC condensor/ Cooler and it was niosy. I called and asked to be moved to a quieter room and they did without any extra charge. And the second night was great nice and quiet.

Zero Complaints

Everything was great, actually the plasma tv didn't work, but the funny thing is we didn't even know until we tried to turn it on to do the automated check out. We were having so much fun we never even tried to turn it on before then. Staff were all very friendly, called a cab for us when we wanted to go downtown, but other than that we didn't really need much from them. The decor in the room kinda looks like an ugly hawaiian shirt, but it's a really nice ugly hawaiian shirt.
