We had a very enjoyable 5 day stay here. Everyone was helpful and professional. Of special note I'd like to commend several of the staff. Our housekeeper, Olive was invisible but effective. The bar tender Chris, a transplant from Colorado, is a good source for ideas on places to go. Friendly and helpful. The breakfast attendant, Anthony, is like the energizer bunny... Never stops helping keep the breakfast area flowing smoothly. A very nice man. Location is good. Away from downtown but easy access to attractions and the coast and points north. If we come back to San Diego we'd stay here again and will look for Carlson properties in other locations.
