We stayed at the Dolphin after going to the Fat Tuesday celebration in the Gas Lamp District in San Diego. We knew that we would not be able to drive back home in San Diego east county afterwards, so we checked in early Tuesday and took a cab downtown.
The Dolphin is a nice clean family run motel in Point Loma just across the street from the Sportsfishing Marina. My wife and I have stayed here before when we have gone to the Gaslamp for concerts and other activities. As usual, the motel was clean, quiet and staffed by friendly people. The car was safe in their parking lot while we were gone. The price at $55 for the night is a bargain for the area, Plus, they serve up a nice continental breakfast of coffee and delicious blueberry muffins.
I recommend this motel if ever you just need a nice, quiet, clean place to sleep a night or two while in San Diego. When you go, don't forget to say hello to Holly, the owner. Real nice gentleman.
