This place was above and beyond what I expected. The staff was so friendly, courteous and professional; they welcomed me everytime I walked into the hotel. The shuttle drivers were great in taking us into the Gaslamp district, thank you! The views from the room were stunning and the breakfast staff was very accommodating. Thank you for your hospitality!

I stayed here one night prior to my early 6:30am departure from San Diego. The airport location is a huge drawl, however the view overlooking San Diego Harbor was a treat in itself. I had a balcony room overlooking the harbor, and while the balcony is small, it's still nice to walk outside or have a seat overlooking the bay,...

Wow. Brittany is extremely helpful, very kind, and thoughtful. I had to change reservations and extend a stay for a sick relative and Brittany helped make the process so smooth and easy! I am grateful for her help and easy communication. I love that I could call and speak to a representative right away without having to stay on hold...

We stayed one night because the hotel was close to the airport. We found out gladly that the view from the balcony was very nice. Also, it was pleasant to walk on the hotel grounds and nearby on the island. We will choose this hotel again next we are in the area.

The rooms are very clean, staff is friendly. Very close to the airport and other area attractions. Our stay wasn't long so we didn't utilize the amenities. The harbor view is beautiful and the rooms have private balconies. Highly recommended.

We always stay here when flying out of San Diego. Rooms are always clean and quiet. This visit we were able to stay later and enjoy the breakfast which was nice with a pretty marina view, and the staff was friendly and engaging .Across the street is a long promenade with spectacular city views that you can walk for miles....
