The only unsatisfying part was our arrival. Having to circle the hotel block several times, avoid the the blocked streets just to get to the front valet and check in was not a good experience with two autistic children who have been in the car for several hours. Once we were in, everything else was great.

Hard Rock San Diego is a great hotel. I helped manage an event that took place over Comic-Con their and it was fabulous. The staff was what made it fabulous. They are outstanding and want to please your every need. Jose, Katelin, Lisa, Aaron, Sean, and Mike - you guys are amazing. Keep up the great work! Thanks for everything!

This is the only place I stay in San Diego. Great staff. Location is amazing. Very accommodating. Decent prices. I've been there twice in one month. Where's the love? Take care of regulars more. I'll stay there every other month.

I have stayed there twice and both times had erronious mini bar charges show up on my credit card. They remove them once I call but makes me wonder if this is standard procedure with every stay? Also, if you are there on a Sunday, the place is overrun with bros, db's and trustfund kids at the Intervention pool party.

Had a great time staying at the Hard Rock San Diego during Comic Con, can't beat the location or ambiance. My room was great, fantastic view of the convention, and beds so comfortable I think I was out as soon as my head hit the pillow. Note, if you want a very quiet hotel, or you're a light sleeper, this... More

We called in to make a reservation for a king suite intervention room and were told we could check in by noon instead of the 4:00 check in because we purchased an intervention package. We got to the hotel at 1:00 PM and were told we could not check in till 4:00. When we asked about checking in early they... More

Amazing hotel with amazing staff. It my first time in San diego and I absolutely loved it. The hotels employees all show a willingness to help and answer questions. The hotel club 207 is just the right amount of entertainment for business travelers near the end of the their stay. What a fun hotel!

Matt D. started off the trip with a great set up and then customer service followed suit with an easy check-in and quality service every time we came across them. I will definitely stay here again if I come back to San Diego.
