It was nice but not worth big bucks. Our room was huge for a hotel room (a definite plus)but somewhat dated and in need of some general maintenance (bulging wallpaper, tub could use a regrout and the place could generally be updated). Pool umbrellas fading etc... It could be that I just prefer value but I really hated being charged for every single basic service that is typically included in a 2 star range. Parking $25 a night, internet also outrageous (I guess they don't want you Googling for nearby restaurants lest you not pay $13.50 for the basic burger –cheese is extra - that your kids wouldn't appreciate anyway). Grown up meals start about $40. Maybe it's just me as there we're plenty of folks partaking. It was nice on many levels but for the prices I would have expected much more. Also, don't expect early check-in. On the bright side, they happily allowed us in the pool area early with a temporary key and said they'd call when our room was ready. That turned out to be 15 minutes prior to when was contracted (4:00).
Great location near Sea World right on the bay. Only a few minutes drive to all San Diego attractions.
Don't plan on using the internet unless you want to swipe your credit card. As of July 2010 use was $8.16 minimum for the first 15 minutes and .54 a minute after that. Bring snacks and don't plan to eat there at all - crazy expensive. There are plenty of places within driving distance that are worth a try. We loved Su Casa near La Jolla.
