I stayed here for four nights. The grounds were beautiful. I didn't get to use the pool with water slides or jacuzzi as I was there for a business seminar and did't have the time. The room was nice and spacious and could tell that it was older but had been remodeled partially. The bed was clean and comfortable. The view of the marina from the balcony was nice.
The room was the loudest I've EVER stayed in. I was in room 810 in the tower next to the elevator and the marina. The elevator made it sound as if there was a loud cart being pushed down the hallway on a concrete floor every few minutes. The sound of the traffic was incredibly loud as well. There was a sound machine in the room, but sadly the only sounds it seemed to cover were the sea lions. I wouldn't have minded listening to them, rather than the elevator and traffic. I should've asked to move, but I didn't feel like packing again. It was brutal and I'm not that picky about noise. Worse sleep ever!
The room had a small refrigerator (which froze everything) and a coffee maker which was missing when I got there, but they were quick to bring me one once I rang them and assured them that I looked for it TWICE.
The room service menu was outrageously priced for what you received. The first night there I ordered Caesar salad (plain, no chicken), tortilla soup and cheesecake and it was around $45. The presentation was nice, the portions were huge, but the food was just average. (That old expression "putting lipstick on a pig" comes to mind.) For that price, I would've liked to have been blown away a little bit. For breakfast I had fresh fruit and ice water for $13. I did have dinner at the Restaurant on my last night and it was incredible! I had the scallops with risotto! (life changing! And reasonably priced, especially in comparison to my less than exciting, but huge portioned room service.)
Another strange thing, was we were there for a business seminar with most of the attendees staying a the hotel and the bar closed at midnight on Friday and Saturday night. I thought this was strange as there were tons of us there to network and exchange ideas and we all had to leave the convention center around 10 or 11pm so they could clean up, so we went to the bar to gather and then we all had to leave there at midnight so we gathered in the hotel lobby. Then the staff wasn't thrilled with the noise level due to the acoustics in the lobby. Seems to me they should let us stay in the convention center where we could continue to talk without disturbing anyone or leave us in the bar. We didn't need to be served alcohol, just needed the public space. Strange way of doing business, if you ask me. Or here's a novel idea, keep the bar open until normal bar hours and make a profit while people are gathered. It is a business, so you'd think they would want to actually make money as well as provide a meeting place for the people renting the conference facilities and hotel rooms...strange.
The wifi had great reception in the room. (Couldn't get service in the conference center.)
It was about a mile walk to the beach.
I would stay there again, but make sure to check my room before unpacking and pick up a to-go box of food from the restaurant and skip room service.
