The room had a very bland brown, grey, and black décor. It could use a splash or two of bright color. The hotel’s picture of our room type had a small table, a microwave, and a desk and chair. Our room had no table, no microwave, and a desk, but no chair to sit at the desk. The room was... More

My wife and I were excited about going to San Diego for some Fun in the Sun. We did have a great time but our hotel experience could have been better. We arrived and Alex checked us in. He told us that our room (we had been advised before of our room accommodations) had been changed due to their high... More

I stayed here for business and found it very convenient being close to the highway. It is definitely an older hotel but the staff made me feel welcome. Always smiling and friendly. The government perks were great. Several of us ate in the restaurant and found it was pretty good. Would definitely stay here again.

Was there for a convention. Yes the hotel is dated, but it appears they keep up with the maintenance. The grounds and rooms are clean which are important to me. Only complaint are the pillows. Had 4 of them stacked on each other and my head still sunk down to mattress level. It was nice that they had a shuttle... More

We stayed here during our San Diego anniversary weekend. It was such a great stay. Check in was a breeze and painless. The room was very comfortable and clean. The pool and jacuzzi area was awesome and relaxing. We will definitely stay here again.

I remember as a kid that Hotel Circle was the place to stay in San Diego and it was really nice. It's glory has faded and the old hotels have freshened up abit and many have rebranded as independents. Although the rooms have been freshened up a bit, the property as a whole is very dated. What once was a... More

I've stayed here before and enjoyed the Hawaii-like décor so we booked our 10th Anniversary stay here. Our room was spacious and included a mini-fridge, flat screen TV and a small patio. The bathroom was quite dated and needed an update. The first night of our stay, the room was serviced, but the towels weren't replaced. We called the front... More

The grounds were much nicer than the rooms. There was this super cool outdoor courtyard in the middle of our building. It had paths and bridges and ponds. It was a tropical tiki type theme. The room was pretty big and clean but dated. I thought it was funny that the hotel branding was everywhere from the door handles, light... More

Poor attitude from check-in staff. We asked for early check-in and when we arrived at 1:30, check-in time is 4:00, were told there was nothing available but they would be able to accommodate us at 4. We had to be at a wedding at 4. The attitude was, oh well. After some discussion we were told a room with a... More
