I have stayed here twice now and am beyond happy with this hotel. The front desk is so professional and helpful. The lobby is beautiful and smells very nice. They must have a special air freshener through the hotel. The last two times I stayed I only stayed for one night each, but next time when we have the chance we would like to stay for more nights because this is a hotel we can truly relax at. I commend the staff here because they are one of the best I've encountered. The only downside is that there is no free breakfast, but that won't stop me from coming back.

I stayed on a Friday night. The king size room was just that ... it was big. The hotel is very new and everything is perfect. I especially liked the walk-in shower. The was NO noise problem as mentioned in other reviews. The staff was very friendly and attentive to my needs [extra pillows]. The entire property is non-smoking which is a definite plus for me. It is very close to San Diego at a more reasonable price. I had my own car, so transportation was not a problem. However, the light-rail transit system is quite close and serves the San Diego area from the border to Santee. If you are interested in trolleys, there is a museum across the street in the old National City Depot building. The restaurant on site, Buster's Beach House, changed ownership recently and the problems from the past seem to have been resolved. This is a great property. I will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: My room was on the second floor overlooking the pool area.

Hotels in San Diego are too expensive - better choice here.
Carpets in 3rd floor hall has bad smell.
Polite, helpful staff. Made sure we had towels in the pool. Sent some sanitary napkins upon request.
