We loved the spanish decor at this hotel, the walkways around the hotel, but our carpet was pulling up in a few areas and there was a large gap under the door making for a loud living area whenever the restaurant on site was open. Fantastic location to the beach with a separate toilet room from the shower room. The...

I came here for a work trip and got a basic room which was fine. You can't expect to compare this to a Marriott or big chain hotel but for what it is near the beach, it was very cute. I will say the front reception had a foul smell when I checked in and the front desk person couldn't...

Our room was fantastic! We had 2 bedrooms, one with 2 twins, perfect for our boys, and the other with a queen. Both bedrooms had their own bath, so we did not have to share. The living area was spacious and there was a kitchen with a stove, nice size refrigerator and a coffee maker. I would absolutely stay here...

Perfect location. Very friendly staff. Good on-site restaurants. And, our room was large with two bedrooms, a kitchen, and cool furnishings. All in all it was a great experience and a great value! We plan to stay again.

We stayed in room 4, which overlooks the street with a view of The Del. The room was clean and we loved the view. Since the town does not have a late night party atmosphere, overlooking the street was not a bad thing, and the water fountain below added a nice soothing sound to the experience. The only downside to...

We were not familiar with property and decided to gave it a try. I cannot express how happy were with everything! The location is wonderful. All of the staff were super friendly and welcoming.

This place is a great place to stay. Beautiful courtyard and customer service. We had a small issue of human error. Our room was booked out for a wedding that was going on when we arrived.

Staff was great-upgraded us from a standard room to a room with a great view of Hotel Del Coronado. Miguel's was just steps away and very yummy!! The courtyard was peaceful yet just seconds from all the activity. My only complaint would be no refrigerator in the room but really that was no biggie. We will definitely stay again!!!
