My family stayed here for 2 days and the staff was really nice and helpful. There were some minor complaints but they weren't something we couldn't deal with. The walls could be a bit thicker because on the first night we spent there, we could hear the people next door laughing and their kids yelling. The only other complaint was... More

Myself and my two teenage daughters spent 2 nights here for a brief visit to San Diego. The hotel staff were very pleasant and the room was very comfortable. Location quite handy for the San Diego attractions (15-20 minutes from Sea World, 25 minutes to Old Town area). WiFi signal in the room was very poor and unreliable during our... More

First time to stay here. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is great, especially if you can get it included in your room price. The public areas are relaxing. The outdoor pool and horrible are refreshing after along work day. Would stay here again.

I stayed at the HGI San Diego Del Mar for three days recently and was absolutely blown away by the staff (from management to housekeeping), the room, and the food. Honestly, I was treated as if a king by everyone; the housekeeper gave me as many free waters as I liked (stopped at three...), the front desk person (wish I... More

Wonderful staff and stay. Filming a commercial for the hotel, the staff was wonderful and accommodating. From the moment we walked in to our time at the bar to breakfast in the morning, everyone went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay.

Terrific option for a stay in the San Diego area. Location is 15 minutes from SD attractions (Balboa Park, Zoo, SeaWorld) and just as close to North County (beaches, Del Mar). And then after a day in the crowds and sun, you get to come back to this home base, a peaceful remove (but really just a couple of blocks)... More

I stayed here during Comic Con. I chose this place because it was central to the Con, Zoo, La Jolla, Wild Animal Park, and Legoland. It is a bit inconvenient due to distance to stay here if your main focus is the zoo, Gaslamp, or the Con. At the same time the hotel is quieter because it's away from the... More

This hotel is clean and modern with free parking. The entrance is nice and simple, and they usually offer coffee with muffins or cookies in the lobby. Our room was simple and tidy and had free wi-fi. The main problem we experienced was that a private swim instructor was giving swim lessons in the hotel's pool. The pool is tiny... More
