“BEAUTIFUL LOCATION”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

This hotel is in lovely location, the room is kept very well and the restaurant is delicious. We had planned to stay three nights here, but the helicopter noise during the day is ferocious and we left the early. There is a base close by so there is a lot of air traffic, but at night time it does quiet down. The view is spectacular.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple

Stayed April 2014. Very nice hotel in a great location. We would stay there again. Great staff and beautiful view rooms. Minutes to downtown, Coronado Island, Balboa Park and the Gaslamp district. Good pools and restaurant on site.

We stayed there for two nights in April… the place is great… overlooks the bay where we were able to see naval exercises and all kinds of ships going in and out (we love that stuff). We ate in the restaurant and got room service - food was good. They were prepared for us and already had our extra pillows and towels we had requested (a first anywhere). We had a great time there, the location is fantastic and I would highly recommend staying here…. you will love their friendly staff & outrageous views.

Room Tip: QUEEN sized beds… ask for the marina or bay side.. both are great. Room was perfect, granite bathro...

Excellent, friendly staff, accommodations, hotel restaurant, views from all rooms, away from the crowds in town, easy walking distance to other restaurants or just a walk along the water. I would not stay anywhere else in San Diego.

This hotel is so cool. Backs up to Point Loma, and a Marina on one side, the other side has a full view of the City, Coronado island and the waterway/ bay to pacific. The mornings are great as you can walk or run along the coastline just across the street from hotel. The hotel itself is rustic and bohemian on outside but updated and modern inside. Clean. Friendly Staff, free bikes too!!

Room Tip: Ask for a bottom floor and you can park outside and walk straight in. Very convenient!

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely, nicely appointed hotel - convenient location, nice views of the city and harbor, and wonderful staff. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Check in and out were smooth. We had a courtesy ride to the airport. No complaints here!

This has been a nice place, the building is a little dated but the inside of each room is nice and well set up and updated.
The people are wonderful and the location can not be beat.
I would come again
