While I live in France now I grew up in San Diego and went to Point Loma High so I know the area well. It was like coming home and at the Dolphin I was right at home!
I came to visit my mom, who lives in a retirement home on Banker's Hill. So the location was perfect, near the airport but no jet noise, off a quiet street, with immediate access to Harbor Drive.
All the superlatives are well earned:
Clean, comfortable, friendly staff, free breakfast and Internet; it has it all!
If available I recommend an upstairs room in the main building; gorgeous view of the sunrise coming up over the marina through the palm trees. Quintessential Southern California!
I've already booked my next stay in April.
