Best hotel in the area if you are looking for a comfortable place to stay on the beach. Staff was always willing to help. Greg answered all of our questions and had great recommendations for activities and places to eat other than the downstairs restaurant.

We spent 4 days here. Everything went great from check-in to check-out. The hotel restaurant was better than expected. Not only does it have a nice ambiance and a lively bar crowd, but the food was fairly high end and tasty as we sat outside and dine with the sunset. This hotel has a great location. Next to several really... More

This is a new (8 years old) hotel fronting the beach and is beautiful with full amenities: complimentary bicycles, beach chairs and towels. The staff is attentive and the hotel is immaculate. It is modern with clean, crisp, blue, white & chrome decor. The bed linens and quilts are devine. Valet parking is $20 per night. Restaurants, pubs and eateries... More

We stayed here in April - we opted for a skypad room having tossed up whether the extra dollars for w sea view was worth it. We stayed in room 319 and it was billed as a "partial sea view" room but I can confidently say it had a magnificent sea view!!! The room was clean, well maintained and very... More

Enjoyed the oceanside room - very nice to watch the sunset every day. However, just be prepared that it can be noisy due to the prime location. The restaurant was good. However, we had dinner at the restaurant on a recent trip and the steak was fatty and somewhat tough. Hot spot bar - so be prepared for the noise.

Dear Gunnar A - "Paradise", what a lovely way to describe your stay. Enjoying the sound and sights of the ocean from your own balcony truly is a great experience. I appreciate your compliments of Tony and Tasi and will be sure to recognize them. Kind regards, Stacy More

We had an amazing room that opened directly onto the tower deck, overlooking the boardwalk and beach. Easy access to sit in the sun, head out for an evening by the fire pit or catch the attention of the friendly tower deck staff to order food or drinks. We asked the front desk for dinner suggestions two different nights, and... More

Front desk staff Lorraine and Shane are very friendly and knowledgeable! All props to them...we are always looking for fresh, upscale places to stay on our travels and this is #1 for the cash in San Diego! Very clean and extremely beautiful views. Love it, would stay again just for Lorraine and Shane. Zach Bunting Melany Bunting

From housekeeping, to the front desk, to the resturant, to the parking attendants this was a very nice place to stay on a wonderful beach. Service on the deck was attentive but not always hanging around. The linens were great and the bed/comforter was very comfortable. Right on the beach walk, you are steps away from resturants, bars, bike rides,... More
