“Can't Ask for More”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2011

I felt very safe to stay at this hotel with my 3 children. Being single with young kids can be hard traveling, but the hotel staffs at this hotel made our stay feel like home. We took the hotel shuttle to a few local attractions which was very easy and money efficient. The price paid for the week we were there was very reasonable and sure worth every penny. I honestly can say this hotel has the best staff and they care so much about their guests. I found everything very clean in the rooms and my kids really enjoyed watching shows on the "BIG" TV. I have no complaints. Thank you!

Room Tip: The good experience starts at the minute you walk into the building.

We arrived in San Diego on Veterian Day week end. The hotel we had pre- arrangements with was
not to our approval, but due to all the holiday extracurricular activies, we were told, all the hotels were
filled. We contacted the Clarion Hotel (CAC96) 700 National City Blvd. National City , Ca. and they
were able to accommidate us. The Hotel is in a great location, mountians view on one side and Ocean view on the other. The rooms are spacious and cleaned each day unless requested not to.
fantastic room services including Breakfast, and Dinner, and a host off uther amenities. We had a
great stay. One day I spent the entire day around the hotel.

Room Tip: East side moring Sun, but West side best view

This hotel is pleasant. My husband was given advice to stay at this hotel. We had a packet deal with yahoo, but the hotel we were suppose to stay at, in the Hotel Circle South, was unsafe. The congiere, was helpful, check-in was no problem and we were advised of the price and ajustment rates. Rooms are neat, cleaning services, great and ultimate services was their shuttle plus suggestion on tour trips.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The rooms were very clean. On my 2nd day the housekeeping staff designed my new towels to look like an elephant, and left us (2) toothbrushes as the tusks. Very creative and made our return to the room a pleasant surprise. Ask for a room facing the water and on a high floor - Would stay again!

The Clarion Hotel was worth every penny. The rooms are really nice and always clean. I had a view of the Naval Base and that was really great. It was also nice having a microwave, fridge, coffee maker and an iron in the room. I also had to wash some clothes and they have a washer and dryer for $1.25 each, and they sell laundry detergent at the front desk for .50 cents. Needless to say that was awesome to have available. Thank you for the staff and everyone who made my stay so pleasant.
