Reviewed yesterday NEW

Overall, the stay was ok, but the place could use some updates. The hallway smelled like a bathroom. Our room was in ok shape. The bed lights were broken. Some of the electric outlets were pushed in. The exhaust fan in the bathroom did not work and was unhinged from the ceiling. The bath tub appeared unclean needed an upgrade.

Great customer service although the hotel needs updating as it is very old. Windows need to be professionally cleaned. Lication is very convenient. We had a birthday party here and the ballroom is just the right size.The Event Manager is very accomodating and professional. Price is average and affirdable compared to ither hitels in the area. We were happy.

Our soccer team stayed here for a soccer tournament. The accommodations, free breakfast and service was superb. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is traveling to San Diego. We have stayed in many hotels in the San Diego area. The Double Tree is by far the best bang for your buck. You won't be disappointed.

It started with a really smooth check-in process, as an HHonors member I did digital check in. The hotel is really clean, the restaurant food is delicious and every staff i came in contact with was extremely helpful and friendly. I will definitely go back.

lots of kids in the hall lobby, pool everywhere. Very close to Sea World. Fountain in the front is too loud. The free cookies are amazing. It is warm fresh from the oven. I wish they had more selection. I also like the infused cucumber flavored water in the lobby.

The bathtub was dirty and the water would not go down. I've stayed at the Double Tree San Diego-Mission Valley and my experience was great. Would not recommed this hotel. The location is horrible too. There is nothing around, only more hotels and a small liquor store.

So, first off, this hotel is in need of a major update--and the front desk staff says that will be happening within the next few months. That said, I'm not sure that it would be enough to make me want to come back next time I'm on the West Coast. Don't get me wrong, the front desk staff was lovely--but...

Don't expect this to be up to the standard of a typical DoubleTree property. I travel for work frequently, and my company primarily books stays within the Hilton portfolio, so I consider myself relatively well-versed with Hilton properties. That being said, the majority of the Hampton's I've stayed in have been better than this DoubleTree, and this hotel is far...

The hotel is centrally located which is a plus. However,the rooms are in a severe need of an upgrade. The shower had rust dripping down from the hand fixtures and in the tub. The carpet is old and in need of replacement.
