My partner and I decided last minute to head to San Diego for his birthday, literally making reservations a few hours before we drove down. We usually stay here when we head down to San Diego because we travel with our little dog. The hotel seems to have gotten better since our last visit. Check in was easy, fast and friendly as usual. They even gave the dog his own bowl and some treats. Since the reservation was made so late we weren't sure what the room was going to be and we were pleasantly surprised. The newly remodeled room was a breathe of fresh air from the last visit. We really like the new modern look of the room. All the staff was friendly, helpful and made us and our dog feel welcome. Even one of the property's restaurant's Sally's was great. When we told the waitress it was my partner's birthday, she came out with a number of desserts for him. So many we had to take most of them back to the room with us. We enjoyed ourselves so much we ended up staying an extra night and being late for work Monday morning. Will definitely be back.
