We spent two nights here in January 2016. The one bedroom apartment was adequate and comfortable. It is a good location--a healthy walk to the Gaslamp District for dining and near bus and trolley routes. The bus to Balboa Park was only half a block away. The roof top area was a wonderful spot to spend a late afternoon before... More

My wife and I were given a week's stay at the hotel in San Diego. We helped her during a trying time during and after the death of her husband. We chose San Diego as a site, and she chose the hotel. Not knowing what to expect, we flew in and went right to the hotel. We arrived and discovered... More

We enjoyed our stay at this property, with my family which included one active 3 year old. The apartments themselves, although not the biggest, are well appointed and fully equipped with a full kitchen. A true asset travelling with children. Even though small, we were never cramped in our apartment. The BBQ picnic space on the roof was a very... More

Husband surprised me with a getaway staycation for my bday weekend. We are owners but have never stayed at this property. The property was very nice. Its located in a historic building downtown. The lobby was nice and the room was very nice. Bed was comfy. We went up to the roof and there is actually a lounging area up... More

We exchanged in with RCI for a week. Location is perfect. Easy access to Balboa park, public transportation or central for walking adventures. Our unit was very clean, comfortable and enjoyable. The highlight was the little used roof top deck. Morning coffee, late night wine & cheese watching the city lights, we spent a lot of time on the roof... More

Great location. Staff was very helpful with directions to anywhere we wanted to go. The roof top venue was fun. Guests came together, cooked meals and shared stories of their experiences. Parking was challenging at first, but we found overnight parking nearby.

This was our first trip to San Diego. I was a little nervous to stay at this property but I have to say I was happy we did. (I rather spend my money on dining out and things to do around San Diego so this exchange and week price was well worth it.) The location is minutes away from downtown... More

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised to see how clean this place is despite its age. The kitchen, living room and dinette were a nice touch too. Parking is very expensive. It's either you park on the street (which sometimes is extremely hard to find an empty spot) or pay some ridiculously expensive amount per day to park at... More

So first off, let me say that my wife and I planned this trip that was a bit different for us. We've done them before, take the train down and walk everywhere you want to go. It works in certain cities, we've done Santa Barbara with our children years ago, and we did San Diego years back staying in the... More

Like others, the price they charge for parking. $30/day. Our entire 3 day stay the lot was maybe 1/5 filled. I believe owners of WorldMark should get free or at a competitive price compared to neighboring lots. They said that I could get a "WorldMark Discount Rate" to a lot 3 blocks away. Umm.... How about a "WorldMark Discount Rate"... More
