Suite on the corner

Posted 8-May-2017
Pros: location, roominess, bed was awesome
Cons: bottled water in room
Location: Point Loma Seafood for fresh fish, sport fishing charters, beaches, jet skiing, San Diego zoo, Balboa Park (museums).
Came for a business meeting/pleasure trip. Had a wonderful suite on the corner with a great view of the yacht harbor. Watched huge ships coming and going. Walking distance to restaurants, bars, stores, docks, etc. The pool was just the right temperature, and the bar is close by. Free appetizers at happy hour. We enjoyed a game of "Cornhole" one evening in the bar area. There is also ping pong, shuffle board, and a putting green. The maid service was friendly and helpful. Maintenance staff was "on the job".

Busy weekend

Posted 18-Apr-2017
Pros: Clean new room that was very comfortable. Great bed and big walk-in shower
Location: You're right be the marina and Shelter Island. Only 5-minutes from the airport and the downtown harbor area. Perfect location.
Booked a room for long weekend while working in Pt. Loma. All the staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. The room was new, clean, and very nice. The big walk-in shower was relaxing, and the bed was extremely comfortable. They even labeled the pillows soft & firm on the cases. The pool area was very nice. There was free shuffle board, beanbag toss, and ping pong games in the area. It was a little bit more in price than the places I usually stay at in the area, but much nicer. I'd definitely stay here again.

Not as nice as advertised

Posted 18-Apr-2017
The online pictures of the hotel were nicer than reality. The hotel is a bit dated and the hotel lacked fresh coffee available in the hotel lobby, which is pretty standard fare. The on-site restaurant was nothing special. The elevators and commons areas were not as clean as I would have liked. However the pool area and recreation area was fairly nice.

Brilliant hotel in Point Loma area.

Posted 11-Apr-2017
Pros: This was our fourth visit to this hotel.
Location: In my opinion Point Loma is one of the best areas in San Diego. There are plenty of daily fishing and whale watching trips available.
friendly and efficient staff, shuttle from and to airport, walking distance to lots of bars and restaurants. If you go there you must checkout Mitch's seafood.

Not for the price!

Posted 11-Apr-2017
Pros: Close to the harbor.
Cons: Bed and bathroom!!!
Location: Next to shelter island a plus.
$200 a night for this hotel is ridiculous! Bathroom very out dated,bed very uncomfortable and noisy like an old box spring bed!!!!!!!! Room was clean but in need of updating for the price!!!

It is close to the airport and has shuttle

Posted 2-Apr-2017
Pros: Where it is situated
This hotel is very handy when travelling as has a shuttle for early morning travellers, most don't.

Quiet location

Posted 31-Mar-2017
If you want to be close to downtown and looking for quiet location without noise from traffic and party people, this is a great idea, price is great and overnight parking is not highway robbery
