I travel for work and am in motels 120+- nights a year, I was not impressed at all with this property and will not be staying here on any of my future trips to San Diego.
Service was pitiful, from check in to check out. I should have known it was going to only get worse when one of our rooms just couldn't seem to make it to "ready to check in" status. We were told it would be a little longer multiple times. Finally one of us just cancelled and went to another motel. Any time I ask a question or had a request it seemed as though it was a imposition on my part by asking.
The rooms with a view that I paid an upgrade for were a joke, if you stood just right and looked to the correct area you were able to see past the Naval Barracks across the road and make out a small portion of the bay.
There was a lot of traffic noise also. The restaurant had a limited selection at best as far as breakfast food availability and what was there in my opinion was over priced and under sized.
Getting into and out of the parking lot is a pain, harbor drive and Nimitz Blvd do run right by it but you cant turn the way you need to go to get into town from either so you end up making U turns.
