We stayed at the Dolphin for the second time April 12 through the 19th and are currently checking next year's schedule to book for a third time. We do not understand negative reviews about the Dolphin. Super clean, super quiet, amazing staff, wonderful breakfast. No in room phone or microwave? So what! There is a microwave in the courtyard for all to use and anything else you may need is in the office. Breakfast? Coffee, tea, orange juice, yogurt, fruit, and muffins are all included with amazing rates. What could be better? Rooms are more than adequate and the cleanest we have ever seen, even at any major hotel chain. It's charming and the staff and owners are always available and go out of their way to assist in any way they can. You are cheating yourself if you visit San Diego without checking out the Dolphin.
