Stayed at this property for 3 nights recently. The hotel is open just over a year. Its a boutique style hotel, very clean and everything is still very new. The staff is freindly and helpful. Its within easy reach from the airport by a short drive and all attractions are within easy reach as well. You do need a car... More

We were so pleasantly surprised with this motel. It was simple, cute, spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and the friendliest staff. You MUST try Better Buzz coffee that is right next door, it was the BEST coffee we have ever had. Great central location, free parking, free wifi. We will stay here again and would recommend it to anyone travelling... More

First things first: This is a "boutique" motel, which means that while it's cute and modern...it's not luxurious. So don't expect much in the way of amenities (there is shampoo/conditioner, shower gel, soap, and a makeup remover wipe in the bathroom). It's also a motel, not a hotel, so there's no internal hallway and the windows face the walkway. Otherwise,... More

Was pleasantly surprised by this little boutique hotel. Very clean rooms, yes they are small but what do you need if you are just going to sleep there? Nice front desk staff, got us our room quickly upon check in. Please do note:: They charge a refundable $50 deposit in case you smoke in the room!! There are really nice... More

Friendly and accommodating staff. Very clean. We enjoyed the location being convenient to airport and central to all we wanted to do in San Diego. On-site parking was easy. Good access to coffee shops, groceries and restaurants. Enjoyed the area around the bay in walking distance. Would stay here again.

Hotel Aqua Mar is well-located near a marina. The room was very fresh looking, nicely decorated, the bathroom spacious and beautifully designed. I was pleasantly surprised to find it had a small fridge and microwave. Awesome cafe across the road and excellent seafood at the marina. The only drawback is we were on the first floor and didn't feel comfortable... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel, and we were very pleased with our experience! I do agree that the rooms aren't very large but it was perfect for us, plus we only stayed one night. The room was nice and clean, the fixtures were modern, the bed was really comfortable, so much that my husband and I... More

This cute boutique hotel was A+ for the location I was looking for. The rooms are very clean and well kept. Decor is modern and new. My only problem was that the walls are paper thin and unfortunately had a couple playing very loud salsa music next door (yes, the woman was teaching the man how to dance) It was... More
