Quick over night Stay

Very nice grounds Great location, but disappointed in the room.Room was so hot!!! Room AC located in bathroom with no air flow to bedroom.Talked to staff who brought 2 fans which helped greatly but for $250.00 per night. Not worth the money. At lease put in ceiling fans.

Loved this trip

The hotel staff was very helpful. It is located within walking distance of Mission beach, but we took a cab fior around $6.00. They have a shuttle to sea world. The landscaping is beautiful. A little tip if you stay here. There is a store next to the boat ramp with a small deli and all of the things a convenience store would have. Also, if you have kids they play a movie pool side at 8pm every night. Good way to wind down in the evening. We will definitely stay here again if get back out to San Diego.

Getaway

The room is unusually small and it appears that what is in it is of lower end items. Shelving in the restroom is pulling apart, AC is placed, what appears to be an after thought. TV and channels are OK.

Sea world trip

The hotel was as advertised. Near Sea World and free shuttle. The bad part was a $14 daily resort fee and $20 daily parking fee. I complained about the fees and they cut the parking fee in half.

Loved where the hotel was located. The rooms were average. Wasn't too keen on where the AC was located. Overall, the hotel was okay.
