“Quiet, clean, reasonable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We were returning to San Diego (used to live there) and for once didn't stay with friends. This showed up on TripAdvisor with a pretty good room rate for the area, and it was very conveniently located for what we wanted to do along the 15 corridor, inScripps Ranch & Carmel Mountain Ranch. Just a quick stay, but we found it well-kept, comfortable and reasonable. The pool was fine, with nice towels laid out; didn't try the hot tub. Two king beds, so we slept well. Went over to Champagne Bakery for our coffee & breakfast - which I can highly recommend.

Room Tip: The rooms are laid out along these walkways, very open-feeling although secure, & a little like...

Overall stay was good, but if you are traveling with family and have trouble with stairs be aware that this is a resort with distances to walk between facilities and no elevators. The service staff at the cafe was below average in speed and quality you would expect from a Hilton hotel.

We were guests for a wedding held at the Doubletree. The site selected for the wedding was very nice and the weather perfect for an outside wedding. As for the hotel, the property is spread out over a large area. There are few if any signs that would allow a guest to easily find the various facilities available on the property making navigation something of an issue.

This hotel was built while I was growing up in Penasquitos, but I never had a reason to stay until last weekend. What a great place! The unique layout gives everyone a great yet private view of the golf course and surrounding landscape. If you are going to be in North County, I highly recommend this location.

This is a wonderful place to stay. It is right on a golf course and the views from some of the rooms are spectacular. We spent some time out at the pool during our stay. The pool and hot tub were very clean, and the coolest part about it, you were able to see the golf course from both the pool and the hot tub! We decided to grab a bite to eat and a few drinks while we were laying out and the food was awesome, and the prices were very reasonable! Our room was clean and I loved the fact that we had a balcaony with a veiw of the rolling hills in the background. I think the best part about the room was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in....I probably had the best night's sleep in a long time! I highly recommend this hotel and will definetely be staying there again. Oh yeah, don't forget to get your warm chocolate chip cookie at check in...it is the best cookie you will ever have!

We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. We were upgraded to a villa which was a pleasant surprise. I found the staff helpful and extremely nice. They went out of their way to help us feed our youth soccer team. The beds are comfortable and the room was clean.
The downfalls were that the breakfast was average. It also looked like it could use a makeover in some of the common areas.
Overall I would Reccomend this as a moderate price place that is close proximity to San Diego attractions.

This is not a luxury resort in any way. If you're expecting an oversized Motel 6, you'll probably be satisfied -- but that's not what the hotel claims to be. Front desk staff is unfriendly and completely non-responsive -- when I found that the A/C in my room was pointing directly at the bed and couldn't be redirected, I had to ask three times over a period of three days until I was finally grudgingly (very grudgingly) moved to a different room after a sleepless night. At least one in three bath towels had yellow stains and/or stray hairs on them, and there was trash (fast food containers, saran wrap) blowing around outside my room when I checked in. Finally, after paying for the room through Priceline and being presented with a $0.00 invoice upon checkout, I found an unexplained $500 charge from the hotel on my credit card a week later. I've left a message with the hotel's billing department, but haven't yet gotten a response.
