Lovely hotel with across from UCSD. Perfect location for visiting my daughter who lives in 6th college. Also close to the ocean. I ran from the hotel into a neighborhood down a steep winding road to the beach. It is about a mile from the hotel. The hotel is lovely and clean. I felt very welcomed by Juan and the front desk. There is a small cafe where they have coffee, tea and light breakfast food. I ate breakfast there each day. The pool is really nice. There is a bar with prepared snacks but no made to order food. There is self parking which is 35$/day. There is no other alternative parking except valet which I think was 42$/day. Will definitely stay again as the location, service and comfort were really great!

After reading the Yelp Reviews, I booked our stay for a birthday weekend. The spa was amazing, service great, Mustang & Burros was delicious. Grounds serene, room spacious. We had a great time! I highly recommend this place, it is a jewel.

Customer service, like the decor, isn't great
This place looks like it was nice a few years ago, but it needs some TLC now. The carpets are old, worn and stained, the bathroom fixtures have seen better days, and there are little weird things that are inexplicably broken, like the cordless telephones, the control box behind the TV, and the molding by the doorwall. The bathroom fan motors are worn out, causing loud vibrations through the walls. None of these are deal breakers, just minor annoyances. There was an incident where the music system that plays bland but inoffensive club music in the pool area malfunctioned, causing it to continue to play music the entire night long. Muffled bass thumps vibrated through my room, making it impossible to sleep. Two calls to the front desk were met with a "we're working on it," but at 3am I finally had enough and went to the front desk myself and demanded a change of room. The front desk guy apologized and gave me a temporary replacement room. He blamed neighbors. I walked through the pool area and verified it was not the neighbors. The next morning I talked to the morning front desk guy, who ARGUED with me that it WAS the neighbors!! He let me stay in the new room, which was lower end. He promised to have the tech crew get back to me on their findings, and also refund me the cost difference in room. Neither one happened. The restaurant and the spa are nice, the pool itself is decent, but I don't think I'll be back.
