Pros: Pool Hot Tube & Bed
Cons: Need better trained staff, Cleaner rooms, More Security.
Location: Hotel was close by everything but not in such a nice neighborhood.
San diego was a great place to visit. We had a great time we enjoyed the Zoo as well as the other places we visited Mission beach, Old San Diego and Coranodo. Were were disapointed in our Hotel but not in San Diego.

Not thrilled

Posted Mar 22, 2015
Pros: Cost
Disappointed that even though the room was reserved weeks in advance we did not get the room with a king bed that we reserved. It was not ready when we checked in at 3:10 on the 13th. Overall it was ok but we will book closer to the activity and sights next time.

Decent Hotel in Sunny San Diego

Posted Feb 27, 2015
Pros: View, climate, close enough to downtown..
Cons: The TV service and the WiFi
Location: There are a lot of small privately owned restaurants within a mile, lots of good ethnic food.
Staff were very helpful and friendly. The room wasn't anything special but was clean and smelled exceptional for a smoking room. The shower drain needed a snaking to prevent a pool of dirty water. View from top floors was exceptional.

The room did not feel secure. In fact, the security chain was held in place with a screw that was coming out of the door frame and the setup is that all the doors open to the outside walkway not into an inside corridor. My room was at the back near above the parking lot. It was home to many motorcycles, and the engine noise and music was very loud!

Clarion Hotel Disappointing!

Posted Feb 6, 2015
Pros: The front desk staff and the diner staff are great.
Cons: Followup on cleaning room staff. Spot checks(improvement). Add bathroom ceiling vent fans (A BIG Plus). Ensure rooms are adequately maintained.
Location: Location is OK. Easy access from the freeway. Near the naval ports.
I was expecting a real nice hotel based on my past experiences with the chain. The lobby was very nice and the staff that greeted us was great. Unfortunately, that all changed when we got to our assigned room. It was smaller that I expected for a two bdrm. The closet doors were off hinged and the door fixtures to open them came off as soon as you touched them. They did not fit the holes they were installed on and they were not secured to the doors. I had to re-install the sliding doors on their hinges. One of the drawers had a very dirty, smelly and oily face towel still in it. The bathroom did not even have an electrical fan to remove odors and humidity. I found out later that this was the case for all the rooms at this hotel. I expected more and got allot less. If it wasn't for the fact that we were extremely tired from a 9 hour drive and arriving at 2 am, I would have cancelled my reservations and found another hotel. Motel 6 and 8 are better that this! We were given another room in the morning after voicing our displeasure to the desk clerk. She gave us 3 free meals for our inconvenience. I cannot say what the other Clarion Hotels are like, but I will say that I would not stay at this hotel again.
