During our family 5 days stay we saw majority guests with small children and teenagers. The smell of marijuana was more than horrible for the last 2 nights. For the last 5 years we always stay at Hilton chain hotel and this one is Nr1 on our worst hotels list. Poor service and I don't understand why they are charging... More

We LOVE this FANTASTIC property. The front desk staff were awesome, very friendly and helpful! Ana & Andres, I believe were in training (on their name badges) and were always greeting us with a smile as we came and went through the lobby. The ONLY suggestion is: the internet wifi kept going in and out. Possibly add a wifi booster... More

We stayed here for one night on a quick weekend trip to seaworld for the kids. Front desk was very friendly, and offered suggestions to food locations near by. The room was nice, but showing its age, stained spots on carpet, chipped furnature, and celling in bathroom was peeling above the shower. If you have the choice, the Double tree... More

Recently traveled to San Diego with teen daughter for a quick vacation. The staff and facility were outstanding and far exceeded my expectation. The hotel is VERY easy to get to and the area has everything you could need. We arrived well after 11p due to late flight, but the front desk staff was quick to offer menus of restaurants... More

We enjoyed ourselves at this hotel in Hotel Circle. It is excellent for the location and price. Most of the staff was quite nice and competent which was appreciated. I loved that all rooms have a balcony. We used it quite a lot. The maid staff was especially friendly as was Alex in the restaurant.

Perfect hotel for families with kids! First day here, hotel is clean, was in a great location, rooms are neat, and beds are comfortable. We were greeted with warm chocolate chip cookies, that is always a plus. We had a family room with a choice of two queens beds and bunk bed, perfect for my kids. I would pick DoubleTree... More

Isela is the best front desk person at this hotel. She was the most helpful about every aspect of the issues we had. She has only been there a few months and handled things like she had worked there for years.

We spent one night here before our morning flight. The lobby was loud and crowded with families, almost like hotels near Disneyland. I had to wait to check in because there were only two people at the desk, and one was on the phone while the other handled requests from guests for towels, etc. The room was large, but we... More

The sofa bed is UNCOMFORTABLE. If that is the reason why you are booking this hotel..... go to another and get 2 rooms. The price will be comparable. The area is extremely close to SeaWorld and that was the reason for the family get away so great location. It is also near the freeway so it was easy to get... More
