From the moment our huge group arrived with 22 rooms booked, we found The front desk staff very calm, helpful & welcoming, always great to get back to our hotel after a long day out, or pop back for a swim in-between activities. We came for the World Hip Hop competition from NZ & felt at home with all the...

I would definitely recommend this hotel. My daughters fastpitch softball team stayed there for this past weekend's tournament (Aug 15-16). There were alot of other teams staying at this hotel too, but you wouldn't have known it, it was very calm and quiet at night. The rooms are spacious, very clean and the beds are comfortable.

Dear 102mimib, Thanks for the great review from your recent stay! We do host a lot of sports teams on weekends, particularly in the summer, but your point about the calm atmosphere and lack of noise issues is something we pride ourselves on. This makes our hotel ideal not only for sports teams, but anyone traveling on leisure looking for...

Walked into the lobby at approximately 2:30 am. My female companion was told by Rob that there was availability and given a quote of $179/night. However as I came within proximity he stated that his computer was currently in backlog, and that the room rate may fluctuate. He went on to say that his computer would be in said mode...

Cannot say enough about this hotel. The beds were so comfortable, the rooms spacious, lovely pool area and the staff were amazing.

They allowed our competing crews to rehearse in a conference room and allowed us to...

The staff at this hotel were fantastic. They did everything to make our stay enjoyable and assisted in any way they could. We were there with our dance crews who needed rehearsal space and they kindly let them use their available conference room - everything they did was above and beyond. We booked this accommodation from New Zealand and initially...

Dear Trudy B, I love your description of our location.

We stayed here as part of a group of 65 (families) for the World Hip Hop Championship. We had the most fantastic experience here.

Overall, this hotel is fine. The facility seems newer, the rooms are clean, the location is good, and the staff try's hard to please. My experience this stay started poorly, the reason for my 3 of 5 rating. I prefer and reserve a specific room type, paying more for my selections. On this visit, my room was downgraded with the...

This is a great hotel if you are doing activities in and around the San Diego area. Seemed like it was 15 to 20 minutes to the Zoo, the Beach, the USS Midway, shopping and Old Town. The hotel is clean and well looked after and is located in what seemed to be a "Teck" office area. Some restaurants around...
