Decent hotel but it's aging. It could use renovation

Great location!

The facility was clean and staff very friendly, specially our Desk Manager, Fabricio.

Good hotel and room with great location close to beaches. Great selection for the included breakfast. Parking in their lot is an extra fee, which a lot of hotels charge especially in a beach town although it was my fault for not reading the details way down below the fold in the web page so I got surprised by that. Learn from my surprise, they will add parking fee. Otherwise, good experience.

Lovely staff. Def would stay here again. My only complaint is the hot breakfast is no longer available

Good location friendly service and clean rooms. Would recommend

Breakfast was very disappointing. The hot food items were frozen, to be microwaved. The other food items: cereal, yogurt, pastries were fine.

No hot food served for breakfast. There was only one microwave machine which is not enough for a busy morning

Liked breakfast buffet. Jacuzzi tub and pool were great.

Clean. Staff friendly. Good location for us to walk everywhere we wanted to go.

S Highway 101 Solana Beach CA
