My daughter and I stayed here recently while touring SDSU and UCSD. I was disappointed in our stay as several things in our room were either broken or unacceptable. Two lights had burned out bulbs, the coffee maker did not work, and the shampoo & conditioner bottles were empty (used by the previous guest?). The rate was decent but that... More

Me and my partner stayed at this hotel for a few nights in May 2013, was a nice clean hotel, the hallways are really nice and feels like you are staying in the middle of a rainforest with the waterfall noises etc, and the restaurant in the hotel serves good tasty food!

We got a killer deal on a discount site for the Crowne Plaza for a weekend in January, when we traveled to the area to look for a new home. The site advertised free breakfast and free parking, but at check-in we discovered breakfast was not included and parking cost nightly as well. My husband relayed this to the employee... More

I stayed two nights for a conference at the Town and Country (attendees stayed throughout Hotel Circle). It’s an easy, flat walk of about a mile to the T&C – we were glad of the exercise. I’m not sure I’d walk on my own in the dark – there are some desolate bits. The grounds • Old-fashioned Polynesian theme, with... More

I visited the Crowne Plaza for the first time in a rain storm. Due to timing my drive to avoid some of the rare California showers, I ended up arriving about four hours early.

I attended a conference here the first part of Feb. 2014. The hotel is charming with its Polynesian theme. King room was clean, comfortable and updated. Its location on Hotel Circle is freeway close and the fountains helped mask the freeway noise. During rush hour, it's difficult to get anywhere from Crowne Plaza, so you'll need to time your trips...
