We were quite hesitant to book the Aqua Mar due to some pretty bad reviews on tripadvisor but were happy that we did. We had an early flight out of San Diego and didn't want to have to drive through the city during rush hour. The location was great, we arrived late in the evening and were greeted by the... More

The office was friendly and efficient when making our reservations, and very helpful about restaurants and other attractions in the vicinity when we asked for information. The room was so nice! We loved how it has... More

We were in Point Loma just for one night and wanted to try out a new Hotel. We've typically stayed at a large chain hotel. We are really grateful for a very reasonably priced, very clean hotel with free parking and a very friendly attendant at the front desk. This small redo of an older property has been tastefully remodeled... More

I was very pleased with my stay at the Hotel Aqua Mar. I would rate it a very good value with easy access from I-5 just outside of San Diego. The reception experience was very cordial and helpful. Jennifer greeted me both when I checked in and when I checked out the next morning. The property has recently undergone a... More
