I stayed 3 days with my dog during Thanks givings. The location was excellent but their restroom was horrible...The sliding door was not close properly , and there is no lock at all, so my dog kept opening the door.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
A very beautiful location for the ceremony! The 2nd floor room with a balcony and view of the marina was spectacular. Very comfortable beds, nice mini bar, fridge (a little noisy) and area with 2 chairs and desk. The only design flaw I thought was the lack of sink space in the other wise spacious bathroom. This is a family, pet friendly resort. Close to many attractions available in San Diego,CA

We stayed for a week. The resort was refined, clean and quiet, with friendly staff, nice amenities and comfortable beds. We needed a deep clean of our room after a visit from toddler family members. Gabriela Chumacera did a fantastic job of making our room spotless. We also had great care from our restaurant staff; specifically Robert and Harley. The only downside: two of the female cleaning staff (not Gabriela) had strong body odor. Our room on several occasions smelled like it for about 30 minutes after they had cleaned.

Best stay vacation thus far. Excellent amenities and resort feel throughout the property. Enjoyed breakfast and happy hour at Vessel Restaurant each day of our stay. Was surprised by the weight and cardio machines in the fitness center. Stayed in a suite with a soaking tub for two and a fire pit on the patio. Very nice place to relax and decompress. Reserved a pool cabana which was worth the expense and personal service. Every employee we had contact with was friendly and courteous. We definitely stay here again.
