With respect to "value," that concept doesn't get along that well with San Diego. If you aren't used to it, it will hurt. By SD value standards, though, it is pretty decent.
The view is spectacular, if you can get one (see photo). The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed, with good-sized balconies. The pool area is first-rate, with generous hours. Can't comment on the food.
Downsides? Hotwire/Priceline-style deals don't always let you upgrade, so you might be stuck with a view of your neighbor. Self-parking is a ludicrous $25 per day. You are five miles from anywhere; you will have to drive across the road to get to the ocean and pay $10 for parking. They even charge for wi-fi. (The Hotel Del is right in town, which means nightlife.)
If you bid, you will get this hotel nine times out of ten.
Since you are going to have to drive to the beach anyway, I recommend Imperial Beach. The price is right, and there are a few bistros to choose from.
