“Great Hotel with easy access to Legoland etc.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

I stayed here with my family. We had an Ocean Front room that faces the ocean and main road (no problem with any noise). The hotel has easy access to everything we needed (Legoland etc.). My boys enjoyed the cookies at night in the lobby as well as the hot coco in the morning. The hotel is clean and all of the employees we encountered were friendly. We will be back

I never expect much from these "Business" type of hotels. Honestly, I'm a bit of a hotel snob. This Hilton Garden Inn. pleasantly surprised me. The staff was very polite and helpful and the location is right across from a beach. The pricing is equivalent to other 3 star hotels in the area that don't actually have a view or a great location. The room was also pleasant.
The only down side was that breakfast was not included, which often times for these kinds of hotels it is. I recommend this hotel compared to others in the area in the same price range.

Hotel is across the street from beach. Had a full ocean view room and was as expected. On second floor and slept with windows open and listened to the surf. There are bike paths but no access to water from this location. Hotel grounds, pool and spa very clean. Rooms clean and USA paper delivered every morning. Would stay again!

Room Tip: If you are there to take in the beauty of ocean do get the full ocean view rooms.

Greeted by friendly staff, dinner was nice, the view was beautiful, the room was clean and the beds comfy. What more could you ask for?

We had a nice ocean view from our ground floor room. A short walk across and then down the street had us playing on the beach. We had a little noise from the toilet running one night, but a call to hotel services had that fixed right away.

Next time, a longer stay...just my hubby and I.

What separates on Hilton Garden Inn from the next? Customer service, years since being built, and location. This one has all three. Usually you can quickly if customer service is a priority at the property, and here there are all of the intangibles. A friendly greeting, genuine desire to be helpful, and problem solving not just going by some service manual.

We have stayed here three times, and you can't beat the quiet location overlooking the beach and close to restaurants. They also have movie nights in their courtyard that the kids love.

I traveled with my daughters for a summer trip to San Diego. We knew it would be great from the moment we checked in. We were greeted with two stuffed rays and cookies. My daughters were hooked. All the basics were covered. The room was clean, we had an ocean view, I never heard a train pass by, breakfast was great and they had a shuttle van. We were driven to lego land by the friendliest driver bypassing the long entry line and parking mess and dropped off at the front entrance! The shuttle even dropped us off at pizza port for great pizza and beer! They have movie nights with shows on the lawn and the heated pool is open til 11pm. My daughters age 6 and 8 loved it. The Hilton Garden Inn is great for a family trip!
