“Great location, very nice rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

Brand new modern lobby, great location with complimentary underground parking. Room was very nice but could have used a bit more lighting. Bistro offers full breakfast and happy hour/dinner. Bistro is closed for lunch. Walking to the beach is a plus. Fitness room is small and cramped and without the a/c on was quite musty. Overall, great three day stay with very nice staff.

Good hotel, close to amenuties, easy acess to freeway and beaches. Rooms are clean, quiet ,comfortable and well-appointed. Easy for day trips to beaches, attractions and San Diego. Hot tub is great after a day out. Meals at in-hotel cafe good but a bit pricey for every day. a good choice , reasonable price.

This hotel, while part of a large chain, feels like a small privately owned family oriented hotel. With a staff that cares and a location that can't be beat, this is a top pick in the area. Breakfast is delicious at the little cafe in the courtyard, serving up Starbucks coffee, healthy breakfast sandwiches and fresh fruit! We brought our 20 month old and she had room to run around, space for her crib (which the manager called the day before to confirm that they would have it set-up for us!), and a great little kitchenette to store all her snacks! We had the two room suite, which has a large bedroom and a large living/kitchen area.

Room Tip: The largest suites do not face the pool, they face the back side which do not have view.

We only stayed here one night, but the kingsize bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. It is close to the beach, but there is no view of the water. You can, however, walk to a beach (or rather to the 125 steps that go down to the beach) in about 5 minutes. They were very nice about letting us into our room a bit early and leaving our room a bit late! The location is very good for the Del Mar race track, but a rather long walk to downtown Solana Beach. The room itself had a balcony as well as a fridge, microwave, and flat screen tv. We had no noise problems, but we were there on a Sunday night in February, which I'm sure is not their busiest time. The desk clerk was efficient, knowledgable, and polite. The pool looked lovely, but we didn't get a chance to use it.

As a regular business and Silver Elite Member I was impressed with the service here... I received a pre-phone call asking if I needed anything and a follow-up email after my stay. I felt like a celebrity! And besides the service the amenities were A+.

I used to travel 300 days a year and have amassed over 1,000,000 air miles and alot of Marriott points. Needless to say I've seen it all. We love this place. We live in Carlsbad but we love getting away from the house, enjoying a great room, the pool and restaurant and the Italian restaurant next door and generally being lazy and self indulgent. Very easy walk to the beach. Get the room with the en-suite Jacuzzi.

Room Tip: Get the room with the en-suite Jacuzzi
