“Anniversary/Birthday trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

we stayed here using Hilton Honors points for our 10 year anniversary and my wife's birthday. We received a complimentary bottle of merlot for our anniversary, received a free room upgrade and we were treated like royalty by the staff.

Excellent hotel in a good location. Nice rooms, great buffet breakfast, excellent staff! The pool area and patio are very nice, and has comfortable outdoor seating, as well as access to the bar and restaurant. Is close to local businesses, easy access to I-5, and was in a quiet, safe location. Usually only took 20 minutes to get to MCRD if you are visitng a recruit!

Excellent staff, very nice rooms, easy parking, and close to freeways. I really enjoyed my dinner at the hotel restaurant. This hotel is close to Del Mar Racetrack and many good local restaurants. Hotel is also a short, easy drive (about 20 minutes) to downtown San Diego or the San Diego airport.

I had a conference in San Diego and stayed at this hotel. I arrived early and the hotel was happy to allow me to have an early check-in. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The breakfast buffet had very quality food. When I arrived at my room, there was a note from housekeeping introducing herself. I thought that was a really nice touch. The cookies are amazing there!!!! The stay was wonderful! I look forward to returning to this hotel again.

The hotel gave very prompt and proper service; everything I would expect of a Hilton. However, our room had a shared door with another group (whom we did not know). The children were beyond loud. Imagine an annoying, loud, abrupt noise continuously occurring for hours and you have our dwelling arrangement. Every noise was accented in our room. It's embarrassing and a sham that our vacation was ruined by the porous hosing conditions.

We returned from 10 days in HAwaii and made a weekend stop in San Diego before heading home. This is a nice hotel. The front desk was very accommodating and pleasant to deal with in our late arrival. Overall - this was a good choice for us as a family. The breakfast was good. The pool area was very nice and the location worked for us as well since we were all over the place in SAn Diego. I would recommend this hotel and stay here again.

This is the second time we've stayed at this hotel and appreciate the value, location, and amenities. One note: the outside patio, while lovely, was the scene for several party gatherings so the service was slow.
