I selected this hotel for their room with the kids bunks and was pleased with my decision. We only had a few unpleasant moments during our stay which included a bad sewer smell near our room, luckily not in it. We were also right by the ice maker but at least they turn it off late at night. Our room... More

If any other hotel is available, stay there, not here. Was just very disappointed overall for the price we paid. Location to everything around was good, but not happy with the hotel. Staff was very pleasant from check in to check out.

I travel all over the United States and have never experienced such HORRIBLE customer service at a hotel, non the less, a Doubletree hotel. I attempted to check into the hotel at the reception desk, to be told that my Credit Card was declined. The young girl at the counter said the card was declined, it did not make any... More

My family and I stayed here for a long weekend, and didn't have many complaints. The shower in our room had a few mold and rust spots, which was off-putting but we weren't there long enough to complain about it. Clorox wipes made it useable for our stay. Otherwise, the rest of the room was clean, the staff was very... More

If you're ever just in the city overnight, this is a must stay facility. Located in Hotel Circle, this facility if close to everything you'll need, even a short jaunt to the ocean if so desired. I would definitely stay here again should the need arise.

We spent four nights at the Doubletree Hotel Circle. It's an easy, short drive to Old Town and to the coast. It is right on the I-8 freeway and it is easy to drive to anywhere in the San Diego area. The property has a small outdoor pool and deck and the grounds are beautiful. The staff is friendly and... More

Staff here is super friendly! Maintenance Housekeeping, front desk everyone always greated you and smiled or made themselves available for you to ask a question. The hotel is close to a very nice mall and you can actually see it from some of the balconies. It is close to downtown, Coranado Beach, the zoo, downtown you name it and it... More

This hotel has a lot going for it, though it has some downside as well. It is located just off Interstate 8 (I-8), which is a plus for those who want easy access to San Diego's interchange system. It is less than a mile from either of two interchanges, the I-5 and I-8 interchange, and the I-8 and 163 interchanges.... More

Very nice Hotel...very friendly and helpful staff. Our family really enjoyed the warm cookie when checking in our room. The only knock I have is that the pool and Jacuzzi should be open till 11pm. 10pm to 11pm for adults only. After a long day at LEGOLAND....SEA WORLD or SAN DIEGO ZOO, you usually get back to the Hotel around... More
