Spent the night on a weekend as we were visiting family. The hotel is clean, staff is helpful and friendly, and it is close to a lot of attractions. In 10 to 15 minutes, you can be at a number of things to do. The bed was great & room was nice.

It's hard to give a fair review for an establishment that can not run business as usual because of COVID-19 restrictions but here is my assessment under the circumstances. Hotel was in a convenient location. Parking was plentiful but cost $14 per day which seems ridiculous to me but surrounding hotels charged even more. The lobby was nice and clean. The staff was friendly and attentive. The room was kinda small but clean. The beds were not that comfortable but not horrible. Non smoking hotel but had a covered smoking area which was nice. Had several entrances besides front lobby that was closer to our room so that was also nice. No housekeeping, no breakfast, and had to make an appointment to use the pool because of COVID-19. I understand the restrictions but the beach hotel we stayed at prior that week had no pool restrictions just mask required. The biggest reason for the 3 out of 5 was not COVID-19 related. Our sink over flowed twice. Had water running everywhere and it was sewer water so it was dirty and stunk. Called the front desk at 10pm and they said we would have to change rooms because they had no maintenance at night. I said aren't you going to come see about this now it's kinda an emergency and needs to be dealt with whether we move rooms or not. They said just put a bucket under it. Ummm ok I'll just take care of it myself and so I proceeded to grab a trashcan and empty water from sink to bathtub. I was a bit upset at the situation but they did comp my room that night. So considering Covid limitations which the staff cannot help my overall experience was not the best but not the worst I have ever had either. I honestly think this would be a great hotel without Covid restrictions.

Average room condition, size, etc. HOWEVER- can't beat a room with a real screen door, patio, good pool area, very well stocked lobby bar and restaurant. Good location, no hassles with parking, staff friendly- definitely coming back.

I stay here about 4-5 time per year. It’s always clean, reasonably priced and central for downtown San Diego, airport and La Jolla. Staff always seem nice, and food is decent. Safe bet for the business traveller.

As a Marriott Bonvoy member this hotel is a let down. They need to replace carpet (or go with laminate flooring) in the rooms, pull out the peeling wall paper, and give these rooms some fresh air. On the bright side their Bistro and pool are wonderful. Gym is standard but larger than most hotels so that is a plus. Parking is easy but you will be charged 14$ per day.
