When we travel to San Diego we normally take a "beach vacation" and stay at one of the hotels located steps from the water. We decided to try something different this time and make it an explore San Diego vacation. We picked the Homewood Suites, Liberty Station based on location and reviews on Trip Advisor. It seemed like the ideal spot for our plans and it turned out to be exactly that, ideal. We had booked a one bedroom suite but when we arrived it seemed there had been an issue with the people that had stayed in the room before us and the room would not be ready for several hours. We had booked a waterfront view and that was the only room available. The staff was so apologetic and Immediately they offered us a two bedroom suite with a partial water view at the same rate. They suggested we go up and look at the room and then we could make a decision. We went for the two bedroom and it was terrific. The room was very spacious and absolutely spotless. Hotel staff were very helpful in providing the best directions to a variety of locations and offering good restaurants suggestions for the weekend when the hotel does not serve the buffet dinner. Speaking of food the buffet breakfast and light buffet dinner was a nice surprise. Complimentary wine and beer were served and it was nice to pour a glass of wine after dinner and head for the very large patio with comfortable seats and beautiful lfireplace. They also have several BBQ grills just off the patio area if you prefer to cook your own dinner and several people took advantage of this opportunity. Lots of room to park and well lighted. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants cleanliness, quiet, decent food and easy access to the zoo, museums, Old Town, the bay etc.
