The Waterfront Hotel, nice rooms, friendly staff in the restaurant. Frontdesk not really well trained. It tooked them a long time on all my stays to print an Invoice or change to correct address. The Hotel is not close to restaurants or malls, but the Marina close by is very nice. Try the cereal breakfast, its great. All in all, clean, modern and price is nice.

Stayed February 2012, traveled solo

I just had a business trip to Stockton, this hotel is at downtown Stockton, walking distance to city hall, court house. I don't like drive, I walked to city hall every morning, it was nice.

Needed a place to stay in Stockton for a business trip. Had not heard of this hotel but took a chance. I was immediately impressed by the layout, easy parking, courteous and professional staff, great outdoor space, etc. Have to admit I was worried about noise given the proximity of university students, but hotel was quiet and nice. I also wanted to give a shout out to the excellent housekeeping, front desk and hospitality managers who found some valuable property I had left in the room and made sure it was returned to me. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel was boutiquey in the middle of Stockton. The front desk people were very helpful and friendly. The room was gorgeous and very clean. The bathroom had a feeling of just having been remodeled and was very modern with a gorgeous marble sink. It was also very large and different than the usual "hotel" bathroom. This one felt like home. The room we had was on the first floor but we heard no noise outside even though it was at street level. Also had free Starbucks coffee in the lobby which was nice. And yes, the grounds did feel like Beverly Hills with a nice pool, fancy chairs and water view. The only piece of advice is don't eat the breakfast for $10 it was just plain awful. I am not picky when it comes to food, but this was UN-edible crap. The croissants and eggs had no flavor and tasted like cardboard. The only reason we chose it was that it was convenient and we were in a hurry. Save your money and starve. I wish that I could take my room and transport it to every location that I travel to. This place was just great.

Room Tip: Probably a high floor if you don't like to be at street level. Facing the water side would be n...

Actually, I cannot believe I found this hotel. I live in Hollywood and travel frequently as part of my job, and hotels are important to me. From the cookies when I first get there, to the water in my room, this hotel will give you the feeling that you are staying in some exotic location. The new hip design and outside area is incredible. I cannot believe how they turned that hotel around. It is by far the best hotel in that area, including Sacramento. It is on PRIME REAL ESTATE.

Room Tip: If you can, get a suite. It is the most amazing setting around.

There a very few reasons to visit Stockton but when you have a kid at college there . . . if you have to go to visit or check out UOP this is the only place to stay- great location, friendly staff, clean rooms, nice amenities. I have stayed twice, they have a great fitness center, decent breakfast, clean and recently updated rooms. I travel quite a bit and this is a real bargain, especially at the UOP price- make sure you ask for it- Overall, a pretty nice place to stay in a town that is really pretty nice if you give it a chance.
