California Getaway

Found the staff to be helpful and friendly. Paid extra for a room with a balcony only to find all the rooms with a king size bed had a balcony. When we checked in we were told there wasn't much room to sit out on it either, wish we would have known this before we paid the extra money for an unusable space. Hotel is located off the highway which makes travel quite easy. Lovely setup for morning breakfast, everything was fresh and well stocked.

OK Hotel

Hotel is close to the beach. Rooms were not very clean the same trash was in the corner at check in and when we left. Staff was polite. Fitness room must have been the same equipment for the last 20 years.

Great Beach Town Getaway

It's a Holiday Inn Express so you pretty much know what you are getting into with the name - a reasonably priced, fairly clean and comfortable room with decent amenities. But you can't beat the location - just a couple block walk to the beach, Cedros arts district, and several good restaruants. While it can get a bit pricey during race season (Del Mar grounds are in easy walking distance), the price is usually quite reasonable. And, it bears repeating, location, location, location.

While there are several good restaurants in walking distance, Tony's Jackal is worth the short drive for pretty much the best Mexican food in all of San Diego.

Perfect Business Stop

This hotel was perfect for my one night stop in Solana Beach for business. The location was great, the staff very friendly and free parking. The hotel was quiet and not too far from the beach for a walk.

good 2 nite stay

Stayed here while visiting family in the area for several nights. The room was comfortable and had everything that I needed. It was nice to have a balcony room with a sliding patio door for fresh air breeze and lots of daylight. The hotel staff were friendly and efficient. Breakfast was good with large dining area with direct access to pool area. Room was quite and slept good. I liked the covered parking areas. I found a walkway and path to the beach that was only a block away. I would stay here again and spend more time on the beach.

Turned out OK

Had to ask twice right off the bat for someone to come fix the toilet so it would flush properly, but after that, everything went smooth. Could use more attention to cleaning (bathroom backsplashes spotted with something), ect. The breakfast cook, waiter, server (he does it all) is exceptional! Tip him! He could use a tip jar in the breakfast area. Good breakfast, always enough food, cooked well. A special shout out to him : ) Pool a little cool.
