I stayed here for two weeks in October-November 2013. It's a older hotel with a 70s-retro Hawaiian motif and decor. My room (it appeared to me that almost all the rooms were identical) was clean and large, with plenty of closet and drawer space. Much more storage space, in fact, than most modern hotels. The staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel grounds were well kept, and the location was convenient to all of San Diego and most of north county. There is a sushi restaurant which served good, reasonably-priced sushi. I didn't go to the other restaurant.
All rooms (at least on the upper floors) have balconies. The rooms facing the highway (8) overlook the pool and receive a great deal of sunshine, which is particularly nice in the fall and spring. The rooms on the north side of the hotel overlook a golf course, which is probably a more attractive view, but I doubt if they receive any sunshine except in mid-summer.
During the past seven years, I've stayed in nearly a dozen hotels in San Diego and the surrounding area. Several were more elegant, but, for the price, the Crowne Plaza was a pleasant experience and a tremendous value.
