My son and I stayed here after his surf camp earlier in the week. The hotel is clean and accommodating. The room was a good size and the price was fair. However, it was VERY crowded over the holiday and the morning of the 4th the breakfast area was PACKED... Standing room only. My son and I actually ate at the computer area as there were no other available seats.
I guess this is too be expected on a holiday but it was a bit overwhelming. I thought the underground parking was nice but feel the $12/day parking fee was a bit much. The hotel is in a GREAT location. Within walking distance of several restaurants, San Diego Bay, Little Italy SD. Lots of activities right there outside the hotel and surrounding areas no driving necessary. Overall our stay was very nice.
The beds were very comfortable. Staff was very informative and knowledgeable about the area. They gave great directions and recommendations. When we had an issue with the AC a maintenance person was there within 30 minutes to fix it.
I would definitely return to this hotel. I was a bit disappointed that I was unable to use my AAA discount while we were there due to the holiday. I was not informed of that when I booked and asked about AAA discount. The prices are fair considering the location.
