Great place to stay in San Diego that is close to the airport, downtown, and Seaworld. Great price, and low priced parking under the hotel, or in front. Also free public parking across the street. The Quarter Deck Restaurant has great food at reasonable prices. The property offers great views of the ships coming in (Cruise, Military, and commercial) Nice...

Our family gathered here for a Thanksgiving dinner and reunion. Having stayed here before, we felt it was the very best place we could have this gathering and rest assuredly, not a family member was disappointed. The accommodations were the very best, the dinner was memorable, the staff exceptional and the bang for your buck was all you could expect...

We had a king room with a view of San Diego bay. Room was spacious. Bed was just the way Goldie Locks would like it. Staff was friendly. Got AAA rate on the room, so price was affordable. Their Commodore Club offers some perks like 10% off at the in house restaurant and a complimentary drink on check in. They...

This is a convenient location on the west side of town, with each access to everything if one has a rental car. The hotel itself is a bit dated--strange not to have HD TVs in a hotel room these days. But everything was clean and the staff were helpful. Good parking underneath the hotel.

We didn't stay at the hotel, so I can't speak for the hotel itself. I came to help at a friend's wedding and I wanted to compliment how great the staff were. Natalie (hotel coordinator) was so patient and pleasant to work with. I've worked with staff from other hotels and I have to say she is by far the...

We lived here for 4 years and never knew about this little gem. We stayed here for my birthday and had a fantastic time. It was so quiet and everything was perfect. I imagine it isn't that quiet in the high season, but we fully enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean and beautifully decorated. Although with a view like...

My first trip to the west coast & loved it! I don't know about the other rooms but our room was great! We had a bay view room with 3 outside viewing areas. Could easily watch the Navy ships & all water traffic. Loved the park across the street. Staff was very friendly & helpful. Really enjoyed our stay!

This hotel has been on Shelter Island for many years, and shows its wear and tear. The rooms smell musty and show sign of the overall lack of maintenance. The staff from the front desk to the maid service was very polite and professional. I personally did not use the hotels restaurant, as there are numerous restaurants in the area...

We stayed on the second floor in a suite. Lovely view of the bay. Our room was well acquainted. My only complaints were the bathroom didn't have a fan and the hallway carpet was dirty and worn. The staff I dealt with were all very friendly and helpful. Food in the restaurant was average. They have a shuttle that can...
