“Nice Unit, Full Kitchen and Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We stayed here for a week in July on a family vacation for Comic Con. Great location - just two blocks to the train. The unit was a large studio with a full size kitchen. Staff was very nice and accomodating. Parking does cost $20 a day but it has security and was a better bet than parking on the street. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing out. Some have interior views which is pretty much looking across at other room...

This is a nice property located within walking distance of many of the downtown areas and attractions. Not much in the way of amenities, no pool, no grounds, but the rooms are very clean and comfortable.

Not much to add to what was previously stated about the hotel, except that there is a pattern to which rooms have a view. All the odd number rooms seem to look out to the city from all 4 sides. However the even numbered rooms all just look into the inner air shaft. Luckily, it 75% of the rooms look outward. Maybe you can use this at check in to try to get a better room. Room 301 looks west, toward the main part of downtown.

This resort was being remodeled while we stayed there - all new carpeting, The work was done with minimal discomfort to customers but it still detracted from the overall experience. Staff is very helpful. Business office and common rooms including game room were well appointed. The pool is small and in shadow much of the day as it is between sections of the resort. Several restaurants are within walking distance. We used the exercise facilities daily.

We stayed 4 nights at the WorldMark San Diego and could not have been more pleased with the location. We visited Coronado Island, took a yacht harbor tour of San Diego Bay, and went to the famous San Diego Zoo. Everything was a 20 minute drive or much less. The unit (321) was small, but adequate with a full size refrigerator and a 2 burner stove and microwave. No oven. Lovely rooftop deck with a bar (closed while we were here in late February). Watch the planes land at nearby airport. There is a small work out room, but if you go to the Zoo you will get plenty of exercise. We will definitely be staying here again as we drive from Phoenix and have a car. I don't know what the experience would be without transportation.

Room Tip: No pool or restaurant. There is a McDonalds across the street.

This is a remodelled hotel - quite charming. No real ammenities, no pool, restaurant etc. McDonalds right across the street and close to the gaslamp quarter (about a 15 minute walk).
If you are afraid of homeless people - take a cab - Parking will cost you $20 a night so check out street parking before you check in.
Overal a decent place to stay - Just bypass the (consierege after check in unless you want to sit and visit for a while)

We stayed here for the New Year ~ parking is limited and $20.00 per night or if you can find parking on street near timeshare - beware or ask what days the streetsweeper comes by. this location has a very beautiful roof top patio with two bbq's. This property doesn't have a pool or jacuzzi. The rooms are very tiny with a "kitchenette" that has a small frig and no oven, two burners...if you have guest stay with you or small children, you will be using a pull out that has a very small mattress our guest backs were hurting next day also, the only bathroom is located in the bedroom so your guest will have to go thru the room to get to the bathroom. I believe worldmark doesn't have the most comfortable beds especially if you like them soft I like do. The noise from the outside while sleeping was extremely loud. The staff was wonderful. It's approx a 15 min walk to gas lamp district or a 5 min walk to trolleys. Across from resort, is a mc donalds, down the street a del taco and burger king. If we go back, it would be just for a night or two.

Room Tip: Choose a room that has least amount of travel cars
