                  Individual guest reviews

                  • Family with children
                    7.8

                    Location, Location, Location and the beds were pretty comfortable too!

                    Ordered room service and breakfast was cold when delivered.

                  • Older travelers
                    5.8

                    Location was good directly at the Marina and surrounding was very peaceful and quiet. Hotel had a nice restaurant with good seafood selection. Room was spacious and had a great 33inch Monitor. Bathroom was spacious with nice shower.

                    Room was very noisy as located on ground floor and early morning you could hear the cleaning crew moving around outside the room. Also you can hear clearly the new arriving hotel guests dragging their suitcases on the floor near our room. Reception was not helpful in handing us another room which had a better location and would have been less noisy. Not much restaurants nearby so the only choice you have for dinner is the hotel restaurant unless you want to drive 10-15 min back to the city. Pricing is overrated compared to the hotel rating of 4*. would not stay there again

                  • Family with children
                    8.2

                    1.Location 2. Housekeeping service was good and on time

                    8.8

                    The room was good and the area close to the bar with jacuzzi and pool

                    Everything was fine, it is only a bit distant from the city center, so a taxi is needed all the time

                  • Group of friends
                    7.0

                    When I made the reservation, I requested two seperate double beds as it was an option available during reservation process. When I checked in I was given one double bed. There was also a problem with the A/C that it was not cooling properly.

                  • Older travelers
                    6.6

                    The location was great, however the facilities were only meadiocre for the money.

                    Expensive for what you received

                  • Couple
                    5.4

                    There stayed some moto riders who made big noise by their motos which badly dsturbed other guests. Hotel should arrange an outside parking area for them. No matter how beautiful the place is, the hotel can't sleep well in, why stay?

                  • Single
                    7.0

                    The hotel was in a good position for visit San Diego.

                    For 2 mornings (I was 4 days) there was a noise like a horn that disturbed my sleep.

                  • Group of friends
                    7.8

                    The view from the room was, nice and the room was of adequate size and cleanliness.

                    There was some sort of loading vehicle every morning between 7 and 9 am that was very disruptive. The doors are very loud when they close even if you try your best to close them quietly and they shake the whole building.

                  • Couple
                    10.0

                    I chose this hotel based on the number of good reviews so I feel inclined to add my own. We were not disappointed, the room and grounds were clean and beautiful, the bathroom was huge, nice shower, good water pressure, the toilet had a flush that could take down a bowling ball, the staff was friendly and accommodating, free parking (!) and free bicycle rental (!) I loved everything about it, would definitely stay there again.

                    Great restaurant & superb chef, lovely surroundings and quiet away from the buzz of the city.

                    Breakfast was very poorly organised, slow and ineffiecient. Room service breakfast was cold. Location was great but gave no easy access to San Diego apart from one shuttle in the morning and one back late afternoon so if you didn't want to drive at night you were stuck with nowhere else to go. Also no shops of any kind nearby.

                    The location next to the marina is quite and the parking is free!

                    I liked the location and the nautical environment and loved the beds.
