The staff was lovely beginning to end. The Bad: Hotel not only has no restaurant, they don't have one measly vending machine.They have a gift shop that I saw no one...

For our purposes, the location was perfect. Steps from the beach. Fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the waves! Lots of good casual dining nearby. If you are looking for 'upscale', may want to be closer to downtown San Diego. Loaner beach bikes from the hotel were a nice perk. Although busy, the boardwalk is a fun...

We are a family of 5 and loved the room. (2 queens and a sofabad with table, kitchen area w/microwave.) Cookies daily at 4:00. Hot tub was great and walking to everything a breeze. We road the bikes and enjoyed our B1G1 drink specials by the pool. We watched the sunset from our balcony. Great Hotel.
