This hotel really lived up to it's reputation here.
We arrived at 10am and were able to check in right away. The room was very clean and looked out to the pool. The beds were very comfortable with tons of pillows, crisp white sheets and those super soft duvets.
The microwave, fridge and coffee maker were spotless and all worked perfectly. The bathroom was large with a beautiful glass shower (no tub). There was both a table with chairs and ottoman and a desk and chair. There were several available outlets easily accesible (helpful when you are charging a cell phone / laptop / video game / camera). There was also a ceiling fan and our room had two large windows.
The breakfast was exceptional - one day was scrambled eggs and bacon and the next was omelets and sausage patties. There was also biscuits and gravy, cinnamon rolls, bagels, yogurt, bananas, orange and apple juice, coffee and tea (both were actually good - not the watered down sludge you often get) and I am certain a few items I am missing.
The pool was cleaned and maintained well. The chair cushions are taken in each night and put back in the morning - they were clean and comfortable - probably about 6 inches thick so it was nice to lounge around reading or just drying off.
Service was attentive. We had a package delivered and they called the room and offered to deliver it. When we had issues with the T.V. (3 times - there was something wrong with the box) they sent someone right away (the third time they replaced the box).
The hotel is convenient to the beach and shores. And there is a nice Mexican restaurant right across the street.
I would recommend staying here whether you are looking to relax, do business or need a home base to travel to the different tourist attractions around San Diego. I would recommend having a car as there did not appear to be any public transportation in the area.
