Wonderful....but

We arrived at the hotel around midnight after a long day of travel wanted to shower but the hotel water system was being shut down for repair...bad start! The staff was very kind and apologetic. Overall everthing else was quite lovely except the carpet. Such a lovely room and lovely furnishings with old,stained smelly carpet.

Great Beach Location ... a bit far from Downtown

Excellent place to have a beach vacation ... right on the beach with nice views available with the right room (some view rooms, view is blocked by palm trees). Our room was a Jr. Suite so the view was spot on. The hotel condition is good but could use a refresh in a few areas. If your aim is to head toward San Diego attractions ... it is about 25 to 30 minutes from Downtown so plan accordingly. Walls lean toward being paper thin. Oviewall a good experience, could be better with some better sound-proofing and a refresh here and there.

very Disappointing

I booked the room by website and I Specific require the full oceanview and I paid the higher price for full oceanview ,But when I arrive the hotel the frontdesk shows me the most parking lot with a little part of oceanview,basically I have to face the parkinglot view, And the frontdesk told me that is the full oceanview I asked ! even I paid the very higher price for full oceanview It's only full oceanview for me! If I need the different view Ihave to upgrade the suite room which mean I need pay more ,I think the suite is only reason he can charged for me because I booked the basically The most expensive I can found when I booked on the website.
