This motel really made our first trip to San Diego a memorable and positive one. It was one of the best stays we've had at any place, from B&Bs to 4 to 5 star hotels. One of the top reasons was the staff. We had the most interaction with Thomas, but all of the staff were second to none. They were always kind, friendly, and helpful. Thomas had some really great restaurant and shopping recommendations, and he would either write down the address or print out maps for us. The room that we had was clean and comfortable. The motel was in a great location too - it was within short walking or driving distances to everything we wanted, from the airport, shopping areas, tourist sites, restaurants, and the marina. I always felt safe. It was a great value. We loved the fact that printing our boarding passes, WiFi, parking, and weighing our luggage was complimentary. There was even a daily complimentary breakfast - even though my husband and I need to be on a gluten-free diet, we could have the yogurt, bananas, coffee and orange juice. Thank you to all of the staff for making our stay comfortable and enjoyable. When we return, we look forward to staying at the Dolphin Motel again.

How was the flight back to the east coast?
It's so wonderful to meet you guys during the week-long "staycation", San Diego has so much to offer, and we're just as friendly as the people on the East Coasts
I did read the reviews you wrote and must compliment your straighforwardness and generosity!
Also kind of funny was the "copy paste" responses that management from other places posted on tripadvisor
Really wished they paid more attention to indivduals, rather than being a "number".
Thank you so much for supporting our family-runned motel!
