Rooms are very nice, large and clean. One staff was arrogant and slightly rude. The heated outside jacuzzi was nice, though it some times turned into a childrens play pool. Stayed on the 2nd floor with partial ocean view and views were great. Best rooms during winter-if You want sun on your balcony-are the ones facing south(220-223,320-323 and 352-357). If...

We spent four nights. Initially quite disappointed but ended up being ok satisfied. We booked partial sea view asked for a room away from the parking lot. The staff is obviously accustomed to that request and they showed their "sales" technique trying to persuade us to the parking lot side. The parking lot is sort of a hang out spot...

We stayed here for five nights between Christmas and New Year's Day. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room and hotel grounds were clean. In the main lobby, they have snacks for you each day, computers and video games. Classic video games: Pac-Man, Galaxya, Space Invaders, etc. The only downside was the joysticks were loose and the response...

I came to San Diego with my best friend for a weekend getaway. We stayed at this hotel because of the ocean views. The views were amazing (despite the terrible weather we encountered). Aside from the amazing ocean view from our room and the pool area, the room was updated and clean, the staff was friendly and extremely helpful. They...

The location could not be better, beach side balcony with incredible views of Pacific Beach. The hotel is updated and modern. We loved sitting in the beach side pool and hot tub while enjoying views of the ocean and sounds of the waves crashing.

We were pleasantly surprised when we opened the door to our room! I was expecting more of a "motel" feel, but we got a fully updated, beautiful suite with lovely decor. The pool area was really nice. It was only 60 degrees when we visited, but the pool was heated enough to use it. Pro-tip: Ask for your room to...

This hotel is in the best location. Right on the beach, not too close to the huge hotels, walking distance to good restaurants, and a great outdoor hot tub and heated pool.

“Definitely pay the extra charge for partial ocean view - it's worth it!”
