“Hilton is the Only Place I Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Unless there is not a Hilton property within 20 miles of my destination, I always stay at a Hilton property. The Hilton name means that the room will be clean, comfortable and have all the amenities I need for business or pleasure.

We had a great stay at the Hilton. The customer service was great, the kids loved the area. My wife and kids loved the Bistro. I would recommend it to anyone staying in the San Diego area! The stay added to our vacation!

Last minute decision to stay here after previous hotel did not work out.
This hotel is as expected for a 3-star property.
Everything was fine except for the prepaid breakfast deal.
Upon check-in we purchased the prepaid breakfast at a discounted rate & were issued with coupons.
Being from Australia we are not familiar culture of 'gratuity' therefore we found the behaviour of the wait staff odd, they would ignore the prepaid vouchers then insist on providing bill for the meal in the hope/expectation they would receive personal $$$ for their ordinary service that had already been paid for - strange.
Would stay here again.

The hotel was clean and as you would expect any HGI to be. The bar actually seats more people than most HGI hotels though. The food on the menu is tasty and there is a good variety to choose from. The bartender, front desk staff and housekeeping were very friendly and accomodating! I'm usually pretty self sufficient when traveling but I managed to need everything from scotch tape to a band aid during this stay and they not only gave it to me but were incredibly nice about it! I would defintely stay at this hotel again when in the area, if only because the staff is so great!

The hotel was clean and comfortable, with a very friendly and helpful staff. It's in a good northern San Diego location, convenient to La Jolla, UCSD, Del Mar, and I-5/I-805. The room had a fridge and microwave. The breakfast staff were happy to let me take food and utensils to my room for an departure the following day.

The nearest retail and restaurant are over a mile away -- on the long side of walkable.

It's a good location for runners -- good hills and fancy houses. Torrey Pines beach is 3 miles away, down Carmel Mountain Rd and then on a paved pedestrian trail.

Reasonable biking -- easy access to the coast north. The ride up through Torrey Pines State Park towards La Jolla is fantastic. There's even a half mile section of I-5 that allows bikes south of Sorrento Valley. But, like a lot of Southern California, the roads are 6+ lanes, packed with traffic, and with very long stop lights that aren't triggered by or timed for bikes.

Had a great stay at your hotel! Rooms were clean, staff was courteous, and the location was perfect for visiting La Jolla, Torrey Pines, and even San Diego. We really enjoyed the small balcony for the sea breeze Thanks for the great vacation!

Incredibly great customer service at all levels. Ryan provided a fantastic greeting upon arrival and made some great recommendations at the restaurant and Laura was our server in the restaurant and was so attentive and friendly. As well, all of the people with whom we had contact were so friendly. They must have good management! The beds were super comfortable, the rooms were clean, the food in the restaurant fantastic. The towels were fluffy and soft. The small fitness center wasn't busy so it was easy to use. The pool was very nice. I would highly recommend this hotel to others. It's a bit out of the way, but very close to Torrey Pines Golf Course as well as the beach at the Torrey Pines state part.

Room Tip: It's a little out of the way, but they provided us with a walking path to get some outdoor exerc...
