AC units didn't work properly for several in our group - room had the musty old smell. As great as the staff is and beds are comfortable, the menu and hotel both need to be updated Staff was amazing as always - It's just time to update this hotel

My second visit of 8 for the next 6 months. Nice facility and rooms. Centrally located to some decent eating and beaches. Staff has been GREAT! One familiar face is Diana. She's been at the front desk on every visit so far. Always smiling, pleasant, and eager to make your stay comfortable. I merely mention something, like a fridge... And... More

My company set up a series of training classes nearby and we all stayed here. First of all, the sales manager Ann was so accommodating and friendly and worked out a great deal for us that fit our budget. Secondly, the caring and friendly staff were so helpful at making this a true "home away from home" for our extended... More

Weekend hotel rates in San Diego were pretty high so we decided to stay in Del Mar. With the luck of no traffic it's a short 20 minutes from the airport and La Jolla Beaches. We didn't go, but about 30 minutes to the Gaslamp district and Bayfront. Two night stay with 2 adults and 2 teens. Regular size room... More

Pleasant stay and enjoyed in-service meal while working and conference calling. The activity outside by pool and outside dining brought smiles to me. Thinking of returning for family vacation. thanks Hilton. Perfect trip.

Very average food, beds, and quality. Broken elevator call buttons and signal lights was annoying cause you never knew if it was going up or down. On the plus side, it is well-located with easy Hwy 56/I-5 access and a good value for the area. Nice bartender and free parking were pluses.

It appears that you stayed with us during Surf Cup, a city-wide youth soccer tournament. Sorry to read that the experience impinged upon your weekend plans; for us, it is always disappointing to read when other guests negatively impact another's stay. More

What can I say, the hotel has an oasis for a pool area, Employees treat you with great respect especially Diana at the Front Desk and Leo in the Restaurant.

We are from Ohio and stayed for 7 nights while looking for a place for our son to live so he can attend UCSD. The hotel was conveniently located close to UCSD, clean, and comfortable. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly!

Our Front Office Manager Sam is from the Buckeye State, so we certainly roll out the welcome mat anytime we get the opportunity to have Ohioans with us. Hopefully, you were able to locate something close to UCSD for your son. We look forward to having you stay with us again. More
