A wonderful stay in a great location. Best beds we've had in a hotel in a long time. Service is friendly and very efficient. Lots of restaurants close by. Only 20-30 minutes to downtown and airport. Wish the golf course was open for future use.

A friend and I booked to stay the night before the San Diego Holiday Half marathon. The race started just outside, so it was the perfect location. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The layout is a little different but, I didn't find that a problem. The room was large bright and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The...

Photos of the hotel and grounds were much nicer than in-person. Decent hotel for the price and could definitely use some updating. The bathrooms are very nice and overshadow the rest of the hotel. Overall 3 1/2 stars.

Nice to find a hotel in a local neighborhood, away from the big city, but close to friends and relatives. Conveniently located just off the freeway, and easy to access. Close to many eating and shopping locations -- no congestion, and a lot of choices. Convenient for a 2 day conference. Great for family while you're at a conference or...

I have been an HHonors member for decades. I prefer staying at Hilton because of their super comfortable beds, down duvets and pillows. This property delivers on that front. The rooms are decorated very nicely and finally Hilton got rid of the old fashioned bath tubs! The common indoor areas of the hotel (lobby, bat, restaurant, etc) are also very...

Spent a 3-day weekend at the Hotel Karlan during the recent deluge. Hotel was full-power was out in several buildings at the hotel (including our room) for about 3/4 day-and there was a sewage -type odor coming up through the pipes in our room. Difficult situation to say the least. Hotel staff was excellent in handling the situation and trying...
