Nice hotel that met all of my needs

Posted Jan 29, 2017
Pros: The hotel was spacious. The rooms were large and clean. The special on the champagne on Friday night was a fabulous surprise.
Cons: Since it was raining heavily most of the time that I was there, it would have been nice to have the hotel provide umbrellas for the guests.
Location: The hotel is not near any shopping areas. It requires transportation to get to them.
The hotel was in a location that was easy to access via the highway. Unfortunately, it was not near any shops that were within walking distance. You really need a car to get around. The hotel was clean, the staff anticipated needs and provided whatever was required.

This hotel was just the right size for a workshop; not too large! Nice restaurant also.

Quite, relaxing close to freeway.

Posted Jan 26, 2017
Pros: Comfortable beds, friendly staff especially the housekeeping staff.
Cons: Little more updating on the details. I also wanted to eat at the restaurant but, the website said they only served sushi so I had to eat elsewhere.
Location: located 1 minute from the freeway 10 minutes from the beach.
Room had been updated om the past few years. Still has the old "Las Vegas" feel in the hallways and common areas. All the room numbers signs and other signage appear to be the original gold tone with black lettering. Pleasing, friendly staff.

Hotel for 2 days visiting family

Posted Nov 5, 2016
Pros: The lobby and the rooms. The gym and pool were also very nice.
Cons: Free parking, they charged $20 per day which was not initially disclosed.
Location: Carmel Valley in San Diego is only a couple of miles from the spectacular Del Mar Beach and Torrey Pines.
Very nice hotel in the Carmel Valley area of San Diego

I would never rate this a 4 star hotel!

Posted Oct 11, 2016
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Robes, slippers, new mattresses, CLEAN sheets without stains, new pool chair cushions, better food, cleaning up vomit in public areas!
Location: It is right next to the freeway. It's sort of an industrial area. No decent restaurants unless you drive into Del Mar proper, or Solana Beach.
I would never rate this a four star hotel. The pool lounges are so old and the cushions are so thin, they hurt my back when I sat down on them. They are in dire need of replacing. The photos make the pool are look much larger than it is. It was full of infants with diapers on, so I would not swim in it. There are no robes or slippers as most 4 star hotels provide. The food at their "acclaimed" restaurant is just so-so. $50 for a burger and 2 white wine is a bit steep! The bar was full of loud, screaming, drunk people. The obviously overserve in the bar. There was vomit on the sidewalk that stayed there for over 24 hours. It was still there when I checked out. It is so close to the freeway, and very loud. The beds are very hard and in need of mattress replacement. There was a blood stain on my sheets! There were screaming kids running wild in the lobby area, with no one to keep them in check. You described the room with a "deep soaking tub". This was completely bogus. It's just a run of the mill shower/bath. Nothing fancy about it. Wifi is $9.95 a day unless you are a rewards member. It is surrounded with other old hotels, just overlooking the freeway. It may be find for a business traveler, but I would never recommend to anyone!
