We stayed at this property due to it's proximity to the airport. We had a week at a beach location, but a VERY early flight on a Monday morning, so we chose to get rid of our rental car and stay close to SAN. This hotel provided what we needed; great location, free shuttle, ease to surrounding restaurants. The lobby... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and totally enjoyed this hotel. The front desk staff were so friendly and accommodating and could not do enough for my wife and I. We stayed in the new building on the fourth floor over looking the bay and marina. Our room was large and clean with a king bed (very comfortable), lounge chair, desk... More

I think this was probably the least desirable hotel for the money I have ever stayed at. Hotels near the airport do run on the expensive side, but for $220/night I would expect a clean room. This hotel has several sections to it. Some are older than others. We, unfortunately, got Building #C, one of the older wings. The AC... More

So this hotel is just beautiful if you are staying in the lobby. It is modern and classy and the front desk staff is top-notch. We were given a room in building A. I could have sworn it was another hotel altogether. It was old and dingy. Our room was small, the bathroom felt claustrophobic and dirty and the internet... More

Myself, my husband, my daughter and my parents all spent 2-nights in a 1-bedroom suite at this hotel. The room was a good size with an excellent view of the harbour and Point Loma. Room was clean and functional with my only comlaint being that the couch was incredibly creaky. The service was reasonable, though there was a delay in... More

I stayed at this hotel for two days during a business trip. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I had a little view of the harbor/bay across the street. I liked the happy hour with free appetizers. Staff was very nice and friendly, especially the bartenders. Onsite restaurant was just ok...food was average, service not the greatest. Servers could smile... More

I am enjoying my stay here immensely. The front desk staff are so friendly and accommodating. I asked for some help with an issue and they were more than willing to change my room to a better location. The new building is amazing and very comfortable. Thank you to the staff for being quick to assist. Restaurant and bar onsite.... More

My family and I stayed here for our summer vacation and we LOVED IT! The cleanliness, the lovely view, the delicious breakfast, and the service was beyond wonderful. If you are looking for a great place to stay, you are at the right place. I definitely recommend it.

We got upgraded to a corner room on the third floor with a view of the base some views of the bay , marinas and downtown. Really big and modern rooms with nice amenities. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. The only negative was the $10 parking they charge. Pool is OK, putting greens have seen better days and are... More

Rooms were very clean, I was upgraded and didn't ask...nice. Food was outstanding both in the poolside restaurant as well as room service. My husband enjoyed the IPA on tap. How nice check out is 2pm go figure. No noise from the AC we had to call maintenance "Enrique" to find out it runs quietly. Nicki with room service called... More
