Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with our property. While we are happy that you did enjoy our amazing location right on the ocean, clean rooms and our fabulous team members. We are sorry that the City of San Diego was doing a big construction in the area. We appreciate feedback from our guests and apologize for any inconvenience during your stay. We hope you will reconsider visiting with us again and I invite you to contact me personally to assist you in selecting an accommodation that will be a better experience for you on your next visit. Thank you again for your time.

"Ocean front"
"Ocean view or ocean front rooms, something to listen to or look at 24 hours a day.."
"Ocean view is nice, but you also get some of the parking lot, so that's noisier."
"If you can, I would get one facing the ocean."
"Partial ocean view is great."
