Am on a 4 week visit to US from the UK starting in San Diego,saw the Dolphin on line and loved the look of the place.Stayed for 4 nights and cannot be more pleased with my choice.Rooms are a good size and very,very clean,lovely fluffy white towels,great shower and comfortable bed.What I think makes this motel stand out is the staff.Always friendly and helpful,giving directions and advising on where to visit.An example of this help and concern happened when I arrived back at the motel after not having enough change to pay at a automatic toll booth and driving through the red light.The duty manager found and called the relative authorities and the problem was sorted without fuss,brilliant.
This motel is of the old style and some may think a little worn,but I believe this adds to its charm,works for me.
