Some hotels use the word "resort" loosely. This hotel uses it appropriately. There is a large tropical pool area. There are tennis courts. But the real "resort" part of this complex is the boat marina where you can rent stand up paddleboards, jet skis and sail boats. And the "Sandbox" where you can rent beach cruisers and surreys to bike... More

My husband and I needed a local hotel last minute due to an issue at our home...long story. Anyways, I called and the rate was $132 with AAA, and that seemed reasonable, unfortunately at check-out we noted the $35 parking fee and the $22 resort fee, which is 43% of the daily room rate....that is crazy! I would have loved... More

Hannah and April were great at the front desk. They helped us out with everything and we got great service and a great room. Close to the water, great pool area, great assistance for local eateries and helped us get the to football game.

If you are looking for a relaxation fun resort this is not it. First of all you have to pay for the shuttle to go downtown. The Bell guys where really helpful especially Forrest. This hotel needs a Upgrade.

Beware, this Hotel adds additional charges for every little thing. It adds up to hundreds of dollars on top of your daily room rate. Even if you're a top tier HHonors member, you'll get charged a $22 daily resort fee and a $35 parking fee. These fees are not presented upfront. Also, if even if you're an HHonors member, expect...

I can’t thank the Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa enough for making my husband and I’s stay AMAZING this past weekend. From the complimentary wood for the fire pit, s’mores goodies brought to our room, sparkling water with a cute hand written note, and the teddy bear they brought to our room… it was all incredible!

My stay at the Hilton Resort and Spa was phenomenal! I received top-notch service from start to finish. They have large beautiful rooms with great views of the bay, and wonderful places to eat right on the property. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, and the grounds have a light tropical feel and are quite lovely to walk. Overall, it... More

They have a self park fee of $34 that they don't tell you about until you get there. Apparently I need more characters to submit a review. Guess I still need more. And even more. they should have a counter or something.

There is nothing within walking distance of this hotel. To go see anything or go to a resturant it will be about $50 round trip in a cab. While in meetings my wife could not leave the ground to see the sight without spending at least $50

Stayed here for business and got a great deal on a bayview room with a king bed. The patio that was on all the rooms was an awesome perk. The bed and pillows were very high quality.
