This hotel was okay but out of all the ones we had stayed in during our 3 weeks San Fran to LA road trip, it was the most disappointing unfortunately.
I realise that if you want to be close to Seaworld etc then this is perfect, but if like us, you didn;t want to drive into town and wanted to be near the downtown area more, then this location wasn't ideal.
The buses are frequent enough in daytime but you have to get 2 and it takes around 30 mins to get into Gaslamp area of San Diego so not great for nights out (tax was around $35 to get back at night).
The room was dark and unfortunately smelt quite stale, not many lights in the room on the whole and one in the room and the bathroom didn't work.
The complex is sweet with a nice tennis court and pretty duck pond and swimming pool. The staff were polite and helpful and the night courtesy bus driver was a sweethear and very helpful with advice on where to go. Its sister hotel across the bay is where all the spa treatments are and it is definitely more upmaket of the 2.
Had it been more central i would definitely stay again (despite the odd smell in the room) and the walks around the bay and beach are nice, as is the boat trip over the bay. But if you're looking to see San Diego and experience it, i'd opt for somewhere down town rather than out in the Bay and close to Seaworld etc.
Oppostive the tennis courts on the ground floor had an odd stale odour - avoid
