  • Family with children
    7.8

    The heated pool, the restaurants and the location were excellent. Good to have a restaurant where you can eat pasta instead of hamburgers. Also breakfast was good and for a reasonable price.

    The room good be cleaner. There was no safe in the hotel room.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    On the bay and has a great pool.

    Small gift shop. Terrible parking, paid $16.00 for parking and the gate didn't work the night I stayed. My room card did not work!

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    The location is excellent and the pool (the big one with the hot-tub) was a real bonus. Also it was easy to entertain visiting relatives - which was the reason for the trip from the U.K.

  • Single

    I was very disappointed when I asked to be put on the bottom floor with a balcony yet I was shoved off into the furthest building on the top level. From looking around, I would say the hotel was busy but by far not full yet they treated me this way. Thank goodness for the wonderful front desk staff otherwise I would have complained. I picked this hotel and paid more due to the fact that I could have a balcony. Very disappointing.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    quiet location. convenient for beach and town

    excessive packaging and use of towels, water and other resources - not very eco-friendly. restaurants were expensive and a bit disappointing

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Stayed in the Deluxe Premium Bay View first floor with balcony/gate that opened to grass area surrounding the bay (this is the newer section of the hotel). What a beautiful setting with the palm trees against Mission Bay. Quiet location, yet close to everything. New favorite hotel in the area!

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The staff was very helpful!

    The carpet was buckling and the parking fee!

    We felt very comfortable and liked the amenities provided by the hotel - Internet, fridge, microwave, coffee machine.

  • Single
    9.2

    I liked to location, close to the beach and close to Seaworld

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    We were happy with the hotel for the price we got with Booked.net, but if we had to pay the hotel's fee, we would have been dissapointed. Everything is ala carte, even for parking and internet services guests are charged an heavy fee. We were able to get the parking exempt due to being part of a wedding party. The hotel was clean and the grounds lovely.

    Some of the front desk staff were not very accommodating. If you asked a question about things like the shuttle, you did not get full information, like the need to reserve a shuttle and they only run on the hour, etc. Make sure you ask the details if you need to know something. The restaurant food is OK, but can be very slow if you are in a large group and in a bit of a time constraint.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Great location (near Sea World and Coronado beach)

    Rooms were sub-par...certainly not what one would expect for the money or for the relatively nice common areas. I have stayed in budget chain hotels that were furnished better and were not so shabby.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    We managed to book a Deluxe Bay View room for 140 usd per night which is a great deal. Seems almost half of their regular price.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Closeness to Sea World and Beach. On the bay.

    The hotel room had a crocked light outside the room and a light bulb out inside the room that was not fixed the entire week we were there.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Rooms were large, clean and comfartable with coffe maker, fridge and microwave. Reception staff very helpful and informative.
