Location amazing!! Saltwater pools amazing. Friendly staff. The views from our room of San Diego Bay wonderful and view of marina behind hotel also awesome!!

Nice view. Quiet. Clean and relaxing.staff was very nice Nice restaurant on property.

Everone was friendly and very helpful. It was quiet and enjoyed the view even though we were on what would probably called the garden view.. (The water was across the street). We enjoyed our stay and will go back..

Staff at front desk was excellent. The cleaning staff were rude and never provided new towels for bathroom.

Hidden gem in great San Diego location. Not far from airport, shopping, restaurants, and downtown. Room was large, clean, and wonderful view of the bay. Property was clean, and staff was friendly. Pool is great for families and there is plenty of parking onsite only $15/day, or free parking across the street.

Nice and clean rooms:sheets,pilliws,extra blanks. All amenities were at your finger tips:bowls,plates,cups. Front desk was attentive and quick to help with checkin and check out was easy.

very good instalations.The room are big and clean..

The staff was wonderful! I appreciated how helpful above was and really enjoyed the views.

Staff and room was perfect. Pool was clean, quiet at night, plenty of parking

Great location. Bar. And restaurant. Accomodating

I like how close it was to the water on both sides.

Rooms were dated, but clean. Would loved to have gotten a room on the second floor so we could have had a view of the bay.
