My 1 bedroom suite was located with a perfect view of Mission Bay. The entire staff was friendly explaining all of the Covid safety measures taken at the resort. Dave Hopper was exceptional. He explained where I could rent a bycicle for renting and riding around the bay. Took care of any of my needs while sitting in the bayside loungers i.e. food, drink and towels. He also asked if we needed anything for our dog and made suggestions on pet friendly restarants in the area. I love the Catamaran and we look forward to our return in the near future.

Hotel's Favourite
My family came to visit me in San Diego and booked a room at the Catamaran. I was a little skeptical of how the hotel experience might be during this crazy time with the global crisis. To our absolute delight, the Catamaran is operating better than ever, and it’s very apparent how serious they’re taking the Covid-19 protocols. Dave Hopper, the banquet coordinator, took the best care of us and treated my parents like his own. He got us a reservation at the hotel restaurant, made excellent recommendations for fun things to do in town, and assisted my mom who has a hard time walking, in getting an accessible room. We look forward to their next visit and more wonderful interactions with the great staff here.

We were fortunate to have wonderful weather in February for our stay at the Catamaran Hotel. As always the staff there was wonderful. Especially Dave Hopper. He is so friendly and you can tell he has a passion for his job and the area making wonderful suggestions of dog friendly things to do and pet friendly restaurants. The hotel was very clean and quiet. Other guest were friendly too. They have a Keurig coffee maker maker so bring your own pods. Bed was large and comfortable and the air control was easy to use . Can't wait to go back in six months!

Great value! Feels like Hawaii at half the price. Easy access to bay and beach. Clean, white sand and nice grassy areas to play on. Rooms were adequate, a little older. Restaurants within walking distant. Love the greenery on site. Good wifi. Perfect winter getaway!!
