Stayed here in summer 2013 as part of a road trip to San Diego. Really got lucky to stay here as we didn't have any reservations or idea we would be staying here. Check-in was easy and no wait at all. Service was cordial and professional.
The views from most of the property are great, especially from dining area and pool area. There was some renovation going on at the front of the hotel as the on-site restaurant was being brought back to life. The rooms were nice and quite comfortable. Didn't get a chance to use the pool cause we didn't have swimming outfits. We did think about using the hot tub, but it was very dirty. Probably got heavy use during the day and we wanted to use it at night.
They have suites separate from the main hotel, which I will assume are much larger, but are lower on the site (hotel sits on a hill/cliff) and closer to the pool. There's plenty of stairs and a couple of elevators for guests use.
The hotel has plenty of old charm to it and is located in the downtown area so easy to walk around to everything.
