My son and I enjoyed the hotel and loved the easy beach access. We highly recommend a family staying here. Easy parking for guests. Modern rooms that are equipped for the modern traveler. Bring your surfboards, bodyboards and sunscreen for a great day at the beach.

This is a great hotel, in a fantastic location. The suite we had on the ground floor was spacious and well appointed and very clean with a huge bathroom. The room opened out onto the pool and we relaxed listening to the waves. Early next morning we borrowed the free body-boards from reception and hit the waves. Something I haven't... More

This was our second visit this year and I was a bit worried that we might not enjoy it as much or the service may drop as we were going in peak holiday season rather than off-season like we had the last time. I needn't have worried. The staff were just as great as they'd been before - Marty especially... More

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel! The staff was very helpful and the beds were comfortable. We had an oceanview room and spent a lot of time watching the scene outside our balcony. The breakfast was very good and plentiful, although they didn't seem to replenish the buffet very often. The location was great - right on the... More

Highly recommend this hotel. Spend the extra money and get an ocean view balcony, otherwise you're looking at the street. Everything is available at this hotel giving it a resort type feel. The house cleaning staff come in twice a day. Food and drinks are available by the pool. Beach chairs, umbrellas and other amenities are included in the price.... More

Accommodating and knowledgeable concierge service, good food and drinks. Hotel room had an oceanfront balcony and it was fun watching the people go by on the boardwalk. Hotel itself was quiet. Nice pool and good breakfast. Loved the smell of homemade cookies baking every afternoon for us! Felt like I was at home.

My daughter, grandchildren (ages 9 and 11) had an amazing experience! The hotel is located just steps down to the beach and in close walking distance to great restaurants, shops, and theme park. We really didn't even need a rental car and could have saved money on daily hotel parking fees. One of the best amentities was the complimentary buggie... More

I confess to being very disappointed when we checked in -- that is until we looked outside at the amazing views. The PT grew on us from that point forward. But back to the disappointment. Our ocean view room cost us more than $575 a night, so we had similarly high-priced expectations. But the sad fact is that this hotel... More

We had a Junior Suite on the second floor. The room was just the right size, clean and quiet. The views are to die for and the staff was very attentive. Also loved the summer fire dancing, such a unique and mesmerizing experience! We're coming back next time we're in San Diego!
