              • Family with children

                We booked 2 superior rooms, one double beds the other a King Bed Room and they were very nice and clean. The staff was very nice when the King room was not ready at check in. The pool was warm and good size. The movie at the pool was a nice touch also.

                I ordered a cot for one of the double rooms which they won't allow. I don't mind the "fire hazard" rule, I just would have liked knowing before hand, like on the website. The complimentary continental breakfast was a joke and included nothing. I would suggest to change that or leave it out, it only made my group mad.

                Even though we were by highway it was quiet and the people or staff were nice and friendly.

                The air in my room 354 even though we had set it to the lowest setting it didn't get cold at all. And throughout the whole day then at night it got cold but not enough. So that please I would to change.

              • Family with children

                Hotel was basic and untidy in areas, cobwebs on the bedroom ceiling but otherwise room was ok. Beds not that comfy, matress needs replacing and we were inundated with June bugs in the room which I reported to the font desk and they were not too bothered. It made the last 2 nights of the stay uncomfortable. Breakfast was pitiful and it was obvious that they wanted you to buy breakfast by the way they positioned the free breakfast which consisted of fruit and muffins. No cereal.

                A little far out from city centre- probably better suited to families

                The property and rooms are very pretty. The staff is very friendly.

                We booked a king size bed because it was our first date vacation since having children, but the room was given away and we had to sleep in separate beds. Not romantic at all.

              • Family with children

                We forgot our travel cot for our 19mth old son and the Hotel said they would not be able to give us a cot as there were 2 queen size beds in there already and it would be a safety/fire risk. I ended up going to Target and then Wallmart to pick up a cheapish travel cot. The room was ample big enough to fit a cot. The shampoo bottle was there from previous guest and had a big long hair on it - bit of a turn off, bathroom was also small.Breakfast was only a continential breakfast - it did not say continental at time of booking.

                I cannot complain about a thing and I would like to thank the young girl at the reception I think her name was Kimberley she was very helpful and professional in her advise and service especially as she had an extremely difficult guset just prior to our booking in and she maintained her composure and then assisted us in every way she could, it was a difficult situation but she handled it well

                Service, our room was very nice and I liked the pol the only difficulty I had was getting my head around the extra taxes and gratuities as we do not have these in australia

                Great location for visiting University of San Diego. Close to mall for dining options.

                Could hear entire conversation of room next door. Funky layout with lots of zig zags and stairs from lobby to room. $10 Internet. $12 parking

                Prompt check in and easy check out. Staff is very attentive and helpful.

                I did not care for the fact that, as a registered guest, i had to pay $12 a day to park my car in the hotel lot. Based on that, I don't think i will stay there again in the future.

                The free courtesy bus that the hotel offers is excellent way of getting to places like San Diego Zoo and the harbour. Geoff, the driver, was really friendly and helpful offering us some useful tips for our first trip to San Diego.

                The location is excellent with all San Diego sights and activities within close driving distance.

                Although the room was clean, we found complimentary sundries that were used and not replaced from the prior cleaning. We had to call maid service late night to replace shampoo since it was obviously previously used.
