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

First the bad to explain why I won't stay here again. The room is about the smallest I have ever stayed in. No way to have a night light with out running a noisy bath fan. Space between end of bed and the shelf below the flat screen tv was narrow and dangerous in the dark. No open office from... More

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
