I am an avid Trip Advisor reader. I never stay anywhere, business or personal without checking Trip Advisor first. My first experience with this hotel came a week before my actual stay. I wrote a review on it, but it mysteriously disappeared. Please beware of their children vs adult policy. The reservation tab on the front page of their website does not have a designation of children (12 and under) vs adults (13 and over). This was misleading when I made my reservation (yes, I am guilty as are millions of others for not reading the T&C's as thouroughly as I should have) and I presumed they my children (17) where still in fact children. Therefore, I was charged an additional $180 ($30 per person per day) for the kids. I did not even receive my original 15% discount on this $180. So what I thought was a good deal for Mission Beach, really cost me over $200 more. I made a point to sign up for their newsletter just to get the discount that was offered.
That said, the actual hotel is fine, the hallways are outdated and the bathrooms need to be freshened. The biggest issue is that the hotel is located between 2 very loud and crowded bars. Music and yelling going on until at least 2 am on weekends. It is also located very near to the public beach restrooms, which seems to be the gathering place of many transients. None of them bothered us, but it can be a little concerning and people should always be alert and aware of whats going on around them.
All in all, it was okay, I'm going back to SD in a few weeks. I think I'm going to try one of the other hotels on the boardwalk before I can truly determine which one is best. What I do know is I got a better rate for a larger room at the one I just booked. When the time comes, I will let you know how it was.
