Stayted here July/August. This place was perfect for a family getaway with our twin 2.5 year olds. We booked a room in the main tower (they are not clear on the website - I believe they are the rooms that are listed as Deluxe Queen Ocean View) and my kids loved it! You can see the ocean, the marina with boats, AND the fireworks from Sea World every night at 9:50pm. Request a high floor.
The grounds are perfect if you are with little kids. There are little nooks where you can hang out and read and the kids can run around safely. The pool is also perfect for kids; especially the water slide. The big fire pit was fantastic at nights and my boys loved making their first Smores! Red Marlin is great - amazing food, decor, service, and they know how to treat families with young children.
The $5 per adult boat ride to Sea World is a MUST (The hotel has its own boat that takes you there). First of all, that alone is an experience for the kids. Secondly, you get a VIP back door entrance and avoid the crowds. Note that you have to have pre-purchased Sea World tickets though to get in through that entrance. Last, the "captains" were fantastic and would stop or slow down so the kids could sea the seals, pelicans, etc.
Oh, and with a AAA discount we saved over $30 a night! Another note: We drove 10 minutes to Downtown San Diego and spent one evening there, eating and walking and we also caught the Sea World fireworks from there. Came back to the hotel, made Smores, and hit the sack.
Look, this is not a 5 star hotel, but it gets 5 stars in my review because it was everything that we wanted and needed for a family vacation. I would even come back here with my wife sans kids.
