I was a bit worried with the pictures I saw on the website that this hotel was going to look dated and seem a bit hokey with the thick bamboo-looking furniture - WRONG! In person, I thought everything looked just fine. I walked into our room and was struck by the large quarters and beautiful view of the bay (even from our 1st floor room!) I felt like I finally was on vacation. The pool was big enough for our kids and actually felt heated! Breakfast was okay. Many selections, but I was expecting a bit better from the raves. ( I was expecting a lot more from many things in San Diego due to Trip Advisor raves, and found myself a LITTLE disappointed on quite a few things.) I was a bit irritated that the breakfast personnel bring you your drinks, but then leave a paper and pen for you to leave a tip. Sorry, but I didn't tip. If a breakfast is listed as COMPLIMENTARY, then don't pull this move and expect extra $! But, back to business . . . There is a small beach with bonfire rings right across the street from the hotel. I saw several large Navy ships pass by. COOL!!! We also walked three hotels down and the kids played at the bayside playground. The only negatives were: the water coming from the sink was a bit yucky when brushing our teeth and the A/C did not run continuously during the night and would wake us up when starting up (at least the first night of our 3 night stay.) There was a concert at Humphries our last night, but the music was turned down and could hear it a little from the pool area, but not disturbing at all! I would definitely stay again!
