We love staying here. Location is close to anywhere in the bay or on the beach and the staff is top notch. Pool and Gym are nice also!

Gorgeous property but really dirty dusty not/ready room $80/day extra fees/parking/valet Not a deal as advertised by Orbitz

I loved this resort, I have been coming here for years. Always my best spot in San Diego

Location and water Sports Great. Balcony under repair and not available not great.

The property itself was well maintained and beautiful. However, the walking paths to get around were very dark and should be better lit. Our bathroom in our room was disgusting, there was mold in the tub, the flooring was cracked and stained. The shower turned from scorching hot to ice cold. The hallway carpets were stained. The rooms, hallways and stairwells were dirty. The rooms need to be renovated for what they charge per night, it was very disappointing. Would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

We really enjoyed the landscape near the Tower hotel rooms. Very peaceful and beautiful scenery. The hotel room was a little dated and needs a new sliding door and screen door. Other than that it was nice.

The grounds of the resort were beautiful! Staff was excellent, location great.

Love how close you are to the beach. Rooms are quiet & curtains black out sun. Pool was clean & plenty of towels. Only negative was pool gate closest to our room was chained & not usable, we had to walk through the lobby to get to pool. Not easy w/2 little kids.

Dated accommodations, bathroom and bedding/linens were not clean.

Loved the access to both beach and bay

Beautiful property on the bay!

Run down and over priced! Never again

Right on Mission Bay, walking path around the bay at the hotel's back yard. The ocean path is just across the road.

The location was great and the staff pleasant but the hotel is tired and in desperate need of a renovation. My room was musty smelling and the sheets felt like there was sand in them. The bathroom was old and the water pressure awful. One night I couldn’t even get hot water in the shower. I will not be returning.

Stayed in the tower P floor and didn't think it was very clean, but then moved to garden and it was nice

We loved it there. Our room had a weird musty smell to it. That was the only downfall. We will definitely go back. Thank you.

This property is like being on a resort in an island. So beautiful. Loved the nightly entertainment Restaurant food was ok. Location was excellent being on the bay was like being on a lake. And one block walk to Mission beach! Only areas for improvement is rooms need some updating. They provide a stove but no pans and please ask the landscaping people not to use the blower at 7am every morning! But overall great stay would stay again!

Lovely paradise of a resort in the heart of San Diego
