“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

If you're traveling for any length of time and have the financial wherewithal, a suite is by far your best ticket. And this particular venue hits the bulls eye. Extremely pleasant and helpful staff, nicely manicured grounds, crystal clear pool and spa, and a quiet neighborhood setting made us actually look forward to coming back here after a day of sightseeing. Although situated 15 miles north of downtown, it was just a 20-minute drive. In fact, the only time during the week we saw that was consistently busy was southbound on I-5 or I-805 during afternoon rush hour. Plus the hotel is just a 5-10 minute drive to the beaches at Del Mar and La Jolla, while being easily accessible to other oceanfront communities that dot the coast.

Our suite was particularly nice as it featured a full-size refrigerator, microwave, stove, plus utensils. Cooking, however, was not our first priority (nor should it be on vacation) as it was also a huge benefit to not only have a full hot breakfast daily, but in addition on Monday thru Thursday, free beer and wine was featured between 5-7 p.m. as well as a hot buffet. It rotated between a taco bar, burgers and dogs, lasagna, and chicken teriyaki. All were served buffet-style and amply satisfied our hunger pangs.

The living room area was completely segregated from the sleeping area, giving maximum flexibility to varying sleeping habits. Each had its own TV keeping arguments to a minimum. Bathroom sink sat outside the commode/shower area, one of my favorite designs. And another reason for choosing this site rather than downtown? Free parking!

Going to San Diego for a business trip is not a bad deal at all, staying near the ocean is an added bonus, but having your hotel staff bend over backwards and provide supberb service 100% of the time made this trip (2 weeks by the way) absolutely incredible. From the receptionists (J3C) to the managers, kitchen staff, housekeeping staff to the overall atmosphere, this hotel was tops. The rooms are clean, comfortable and have plenty of space, the complimentary meals were quality (beer and wine didn't hurt at all) and the pool area was clean and organized. If you are traveling to northern San Diego area I absolutely reccomend the Homewood suites!

This hotel offers several amenities and is very reasonably priced. Modern furnishing and a nice kitchen. The breakfast is the better than a Denny's and has several options. It is in a great location with good access to the freeway, parks, beaches and restaurants. Friendly staff and nice accommodations.

This Homewood Suites may be in Del Mar, but it is close enough to La Jolla to be called a Jewel! Close to the 5, I valued the quiet surroundings and the very attentive staff on my stay. The breakfast and light dinner fit the bill for me, even though the kitchenette in the room would have been an option on a longer visit. The room was clean and neat and comfortable. The work area in the room met all my needs. There are at least 6 Hilton properties within a 10 mile radius and I will be returning to this one soon!

We recently stayed here on a business / pleasure trip and found it to be a wonderful place to stay. It is close to most of the San Diego attractions. Only 15 minutes to downtown (non-rush hour traffic). Also it was very close to the Torrey Pines Golf Course. As a golfer that was reason enough to stay here. I would recommend it.
Please disregard my earlier review of hotel in Carlsbad,Ca. Somehow this review got posted to that hotel which was not correct. We stayed at the Homewood Suites on Vista Sorrento Parkway.

This is a wonderful hotel. The general manager is gracious and charming, the staff is friendly and so helpful. We stayed for five days in late April 2013 and had a great time. The facility is lovely and in a great location. Will definitely come back. Highly recommend this hotel for a family or business trip. Lovely stay. Thanks.

Room Tip: Had a room on the top floor and it was super quiet. Loved it.
