Stayed here for 3 days last week. Low season for San Diego. Hotel itself is nice but clearly outdated and old. But a parking fee of $32 for a hotel that is not even in downtown? And that is for self park? Are you kidding me? That's the rate you pay in downtown Chicago for valet. And i read older... More

I stayed at the resort for 2 nights as a mini getaway while visiting family in the area. Other than my check in expierience, it was fantastic. Let me explain, I'm a Hilton Honors member so I always stay at Hilton properties. My flight in was delayed and I knew I would be checking in late so I called the... More

My girlfriend and I spent a couple days at this hotel and left very happy. It started off wonderfully as we were greeted when we pulled up to the hotel by the manager Matt and he walked us into the lobby to be checked in. Check in was quick and easy (aside from the 32 parking charge which many people... More

Our overall experience was a good one but with a few too many hick-ups for what I would expect. First, when we checked in and got to our room we found our bathroom was still dirty. When I tried calling the front desk to inform them I kept getting an answer machine (I attempted to call at other times during... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night recently and we absolutely loved the experience! The hotel property is beautiful. The grounds are well kept and the pool area is stunning. This is the perfect place if you are seeking a relaxing retreat. The view of the bay from our room was a delightful experience. The room, itself, was... More

The pool is definitely one... More

Wow! Nice location setting, the main staff including the valet/bus speak clear English, maid service is great and what a beautiful room (773)in the tower with 'bay view'. We came here for vacation and had great weather. That is the end (unfortunately) of the positives, and I'm a very well traveled 'older' professional and stay at many places. So here... More

I just returned from this property and had mixed feelings. The staff was very helpful and I was upgraded (because of my HHonors diamond status) to a pretty nice room. The resort was pretty cheap because it’s the off season but they really get you on the parking. $32 a night for Self-Park. I’ve paid that much for valet parking... More

What a nice surprise. I made this reservation based solely on mapping services trying to get a Hilton close to the airport. What a beautiful location. Though I was on a quick business trip, I wish I could have stayed longer. Trip back to the rental car providers was quick. Had the breakfast buffet at the onsite restaurant. Very good... More

We’re glad to see that you enjoyed your stay here, and wish you could have stayed longer as well. I think what sets us apart from other local Hilton hotels is our location.

The hotel is really well maintained there was always a gardener or staff buzzing about. When we arrived the front desk offered us the chance to upgrade our room to a bayfront room...duh yeah!
