This was by far the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in! They even clean the carpets after each guest! The decor and pool area Is very eclectic and unique. Great discount forecasts and they’re attached café, but be prepared to wait a very long time for breakfast. The Rambler will now be my go to lodging any time I’m in the San Diego area.

I love the location and how close it is to the beach. The room colors are modern. The hot water in the shower is amazing!! I did perfer the rooms near the pool as apposed to the rooms in the back. They do only have one ice station on the bottom floor. But overall I do love this place. It was my second year booking it for my annual vacation.
