Location chosen for proximity to the airport as only here for an evening layover. Stayed in the Casa Marina building. Upper level room overlooked said marina with nice decor, comfortable bed and useable 2-chair balcony. Expected clang-clang from sailboat rigging with balcony door open.

Room Tip: This a vast property incorporating many buildings of various ages. Some of the ones closer to reception appeared older & less "posh".

We stayed on the Marina side with a balcony which was terrific. The bay side is nice too, it depends on your preferences. Not all rooms have balconys. The property is beautiful and a quite stay with a park across the street for enjoyment. The pool area can have a few more kids at one than the other. The restaurants on the island are good for seafood. Other great ones are not that far away too.The fridge in rooms are a bit small if this is an important element. Electrical outlets are plenty and this is a big factor for me. I liked the sensor lighting in the bathrooms. Loved the bikes they had available to use for free. Parking costs $10 day though if you park on property. You can park across the street at the park too, for free. I would recommend this as a great get away, spending a bit more but worth it and plan to try it again.

Hi again folks, Where do I start. We had just come off a long flight from Hawaii and a short annoying one from LAX. This place is about 10 minutes from the airport and NOT on an approach route. The room was excellent and right next to the pool. It came with all the amenities. It was clean and the maid staff even found a hat pin clasp that I didn't even know I had lost and put it where I could find it - Well Done. The BW also had the usual computor and printer so I could print my boarding passes. This BW is also near Point Loma and Cabrillo National Monument as well as downtown San Diego. Lots more good. Regards, OldeBear

We stayed here for our 1st Anniversary. I based it off the reviews of other ones. Everything positive that's been said is true! We were very happy with our stay. The marina view is worth it! The pool is heated to 80 degrees and the hot tub was nice. It was a good balance between family friendly without going overboard. The wifi was in and out a bit. Otherwise it was worth it.
