Tracy May 22, 2014 A large, lovely room with a great window shade and kitchenette, perfect for relaxing and light cooking after a long day at the zoo.

The spacious well-appointed rooms are very nice. However, all the staff I encountered seemed to have a 'could care less' attitude. Not warm, not welcoming, not efficient. From a repetitious answer to my request for an early check-in ('Check-in is not until 4 pm', and 'I'm sorry' was not part of that answer...) to a loud knock on my door... More

We've stayed here twice as Shell Vacation Club owners. The first time in February 2014 and then May 2014. This is a quaint old hotel that has has quite a bit of renovation but still needs more. We loved the proximity to the park, zoo, etc. so it was ideal. The restaurant is still not open which is a disappointment... More

This place it seems is a timeshare. Our friends had reserved a room for the weekend but had to back out so they asked if we wanted the room. There are 82 studio, one and two bedroom units.

You can do San Diego a lot of ways: Mission Bay, La Jolla, Imperial Beach, Gaslamp, etc. For us, the 2 or 3 night stay at Inn at the Park is perfect. We're not beach people any more, but can drive up north for a beach hike if we like. Otherwise, getting up in the morning at Inn at the... More

Upscale redecorated hotel turned timeshare. Room are very comfortable, spacious, like mini apartments with nice kitchen facilities. Can't park at hotel without extra fee, unfortunate. And they try and get you to sign up for timeshare. But if you can get past that, it's a great location right near Balboa Park, close to downtown and good eating places in Hillcrest... More

This is now a timeshare property, but you can also book as a hotel. Maybe because I used timeshare points, and I don't feel like I'm spending tons for the suite I liked it more.
