nice location, super weak facilities!

Posted Nov 27, 2016
Pros: only location
Cons: i will never come to this hotel again and i think when a hotel cannot convince you to come back, it's done!
Location: nearby you can find everything you need.
hotel location is nice and that the only positive factor here! access to rooms is so ridiculous, when you see you understand what I'm saying. not having a restaurant is like a car without an engine! restaurant, even a very basic, is the first basic facility that you need when traveling, but I wouldn't be a very negative factor unless they would post it very clearly in their web site, you know what i mean? get you here and then : hey, we don't have a basic food service here! closing swimming pool (and again not posting it in their web site) for a so-called "renovation" is one of the most unrespectful things you can do to customers and worse than that is to address them another hotels swimming pool to use!!

Mediocre

Posted Nov 23, 2016
Pool and hot tub - the reason we booked - were closed - we got no warning. The room was tiny. We are small people and could not walk between bed and dresser wo drawing blood and bruises. Location was great but room and amenities major disappointment. View was over a roof.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your review. We do apologize that you were unable to enjoy the pool area during our renovation and that the room size was not adequate. We would love to have you as our guest again to make up for the dissatisfaction.

Awesome beach front view!

Posted Nov 22, 2016
Pros: Proximity to the ocean.
Cons: Nothing
Location: There were a lot of good restaurants near by.
It was great. The room view provided us the ability to enjoy the ocean as well as the local traffic flying by on the walk, run and bike path.

Hotel was clean and had a great location. Pool and hot tub were being renovated so we couldn't use them. We asked for something back so they gave us one night free out of 8 nights.

Walls are a bit thin as the hotel is old, but the remodel is really nice and the staff is uh-mazing!

Over Priced for an Ocean View

Posted Nov 21, 2016
Room was tiny, pool and hot tub not working. Would've been nice to know before booking. They don't serve breakfast, again would've like to have known that. Had to pay for parking. Not a great way to spend my Birthday. Overall not a great area. I request a top floor room and I got the first floor. Etc. Etc. Etc.

Beautiful, renovated hotel on the beach!

Posted Nov 19, 2016
Pros: Proximity to the beach, renovated rooms, pool and hot tub area.
Cons: A few little touch ups in the rooms - some rust, paint peeling, etc.
Location: Restaurants, bars, beach, grocery stores, coffee shops, surfing in the ocean, and activities on Mission Bay.
The view from our room was incredible. A balcony overlooking the beach, you could wake up every morning and watch dolphins, whales, and surfers out in the water. The pool and hot tub were being renovated when we were staying there, but the work they are doing looks amazing. The view from the pool/hot tub can't be beat. The location is wonderful - restaurants, bars, groceries, activities are all there. A surf company even sets up shop for rentals and lessons on the beach right in front of the hotel. Honestly, this hotel was one of the best we have stayed at recently. They were extremely accommodating of our large group. We will be back and will refer friends and family to this hotel!

Gut gelegenes Hotel direkt am Strand.

Posted Nov 18, 2016
Handelt sich eher um ein Mittel. Zimmer ausreichend groß. Kein Premium Hotel, aber sauber und gepflegt. Das Gebäude besteht aus drei Teilen, wobei nur zwei am Strand liegen, während ein Teil zum daneben befindlichen Parkplatz zeigt.
