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.

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.
