We chose this hotel because of the great reviews and because it was in between a couple of locations we wanted to visit. We were not disappointed! The rooms were clean and above average. We loved the setting of the hotel - nice big comfy lobby, great pool, nice fire in the outdoor fireplace at night.
We had breakfast at the hotel every morning and the food was great. They have the standard buffet food but also a cook who will make you an omelet, french toast, etc. Had dinner there one night and it was equally as good.
The staff was so friendly and helpful. They will shuttle you within a few miles of the hotel. Legoland is very close by. We also took the coastal train down to San Diego to the zoo.
The sunsets were beautiful. We didn't really spend any time on the beach because there were so many other things we wanted to do and it was a bit too cool. If you're going for time on the beach, know that you have to cross a very busy highway and climb down a tricky pathway. But it was beautiful to look at!
There were lots of restaurants and stores nearby, including an outlet mall. A couple of fun family places we ate were Sammy's Woodfired Pizza (Yum!! - cotton candy is an actual dessert there!) and In-N-Out Burgers.
The only negative is that we couldn't stay longer.
