We booked the hotel by chance as our original choice was overbooked. And we were so lucky. Hardly I can imagine a better place to stay in SD in this price range. We had a room in the Casa Marina building, the newest complex - 3rd floor - balcony facing the bay not the marina. We couldn't get a better hit. The rooms were great: big, clean, well equipped and with a private balcony. The view, especially in the night, of the SD skyline just from that balcony was amazing.
The hotel staff really did a great job, satisfying our needs and making us feel as comfortable as possible.
The hotel is located on shelter island. So you're off the busy streets but not too far away from downtown or the shores. The whole area leaves a secure impression so we even strolled through the park (across the street) at night.
The pools and jacuzzis were great, too: size good, not overcrowded, clean and separated from the streets or the marina, still not blocking the outrageous view.
All in all: it's the pace to stay in SD!
